Or the best one day out of ten, depending on how long the last supply survived.
I like having enough, knowing that I'm not going to run out. I imagine it's very much the way Mormons feel about their food storage - just knowing that you've got the basics covered. It's that feeling you get when you get a surprise bonus and don't have a bill you have to pay with it - that "I'm Rich!" feeling that comes from knowing everything's taken care of and, for a moment, at least, you have plenty.
I shit you not, I woke up this morning and thought "Ugh, I don't want to go to work today", immediately followed by "OH WAIT! Yesterday was New ____ Day! Today will be fine!" It has that sort of power - New ____ Day is awesome even the day after New ____ Day.
Yesterday at work? Stressful. The boss was back after a week's vacation; to start the day off on the right foot, he asked me about some invoices that had been brought to his attention by his boss - the owner of our national company. I'll tell ya what, nothing gets a Monday started right like having your boss's boss find your fuckups. Meanwhile, we're short our admin. assistant until we find a new one; it's always hard when you're trying to fill a position. And we found a blind German Shepherd roaming our property; I can't pretend I did a whole lot about that - mostly it was Kim who made the phone calls and such, but I helped a bit. The dog part was more emotionally draining than anything else.
And then after work, I had to drive through the dumb ol' rain that won't stop to go try on bridesmaid dresses*.
But you know what got me through my day? Knowing it was New ____ Day. Knowing that later that evening, I'd be able to go to the grocery and get my stash. The anticipation of that "Ahh" after the purchase is finalized - that "I'm set" feeling.
Do you have any idea what I'm talking about? Do you have a New ____ Day you celebrate with regularity? Something small to the world but big to you? Tell me about it.
*I'll be honest, the dress thing? - that experience was so much better than I'd anticipated. We tried on two dresses and chose the second - we were finished in under an hour. And the dresses are pretty! And affordable! And black! (I mean, not like I go to formals or anything, but I would totally wear this dress to prom if some poor misled hot high school senior asked me to prom. You know, if he was my cousin.)
