Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more?

The best news I got recently was that my cat, Bjorn, had normal blood test results.

I went to the dentist yesterday for the first time since before my 12-year-old was conceived. The practice, Smiles by Rosie, is known for their gentleness and my autistic kids do okay there (anxious girl is anxious and got about half-way through hers). I'd finally gotten my act together to get dental insurance for myself via the MA Health Connector. I jumped on a convenient "you can get an unexpectedly available appointment in this slot" notification and got Rosie's newest hire. I'd never have known it was her first day (first two weeks, since the hygienist was training her on the computer); she was terrific and gentle and sweet (and young!) and fit in well with Rosie's general reputation.

Also, Mom-in-law made it possible for us to replace our oldest car with one that's only two years old and with plenty of space for unruly large children to avoid each other. I'm picking it up today!

I volunteered to support exchange students at the local college. It seems to be working out - I've been emailing with three of them and was just invited to a lunch. I'm bringing fruit.

I ran into a current and a former student while out yesterday evening, and it made me so happy! The former asked how my recovery was progressing. The latter found out about my recent surgery when she asked how I was doing, but was super-supportive. And she's doing well herself! Lots of hugs exchanged. Seeing and catching up with former students always puts me in such a good mood!

Despite the hurricane the mother comes.

...

And Nashville Indiana is our big thing-Not Shipshajuana (OK by me, really)...and then I might take her to the Itlejorg, too because Indigenous culture and she loves that.

...

I need this. I am so freaking burnt out on trying to do everything everywhere for everyone (Even if I'm not truly aware of it) and falling prey to a complex I didn't know was so much a thing that I just...I need this.

I hope to all the gods this trip is as fun as I'm expecting because so much else is up in the air right now. >.>

I've been to Nashville once before-it's been years, though. I can't remember the last time I sepped foot in the museum, so It'll be just as fun for me as for her. :d

Thank you.

Power and communications were restored after 3 1/2 days, although I still don't have cell-phone service.

First, not only is my son back in college, he's enjoying it. His depression is under control and he's got his sense of humor back. I only wish it hadn't taken a crisis of such magnitude to make me realize what was happening, because in retrospect his downward slide began in 2014, when we moved (a good thing, but still a huge change) and then lost our Cloud-kitty to an auto-immune disease a couple of months later. In addition, he was permitted to keep his scholarship.

Bad news preceding good: I didn't see an oncoming car at a two way stop and totaled my car. Good news part 1: no one was hurt. Given the state of the metal wrapped around us, that qualifies as a minor miracle. Good news part 2: I've already managed to replace it with a minivan. Easier on my hips, and my mom can get in and out of it without help, which means I can can also sell her car.

And final, unalloyed good: I am DONE with mom's house as of Sept 29th. Henceforth if I drive down to Indy it will be because I am visiting, not working. Woo-Hoo!

Bad beginning, good ending: Today a $39,000 hospital bill (because my husband neglected to get the VA's go ahead on being admitted for a 36 hour stay at County General last Presidents Day weekend) got negotiated down to $0 and signed off. Way to go, Hospital Financial Officer! I jumped through many hoops to make this happen and you, Milady, were a gem.

anticipating Solar panels to be installed on Oct. 11, yay! *insert sunny icon here*
