The Best Day Ever

Okay, today wasn't actually the best day ever, but still, it was pretty good! I took Aiden to school and it was freakishly cold outside. I decided to venture to the happiest place on Earth, Wal-Mart. I had to pick up medications from the pharmacy. I was excited to be able to take my time going through all of the aisles without feeling like I'm being rushed. I found an already-cooked corn dog that I was happy to scoop up, and I looked for a grape or strawberry soda to treat myself but I couldn't find one.

Next, I decided to be a brave adventurer and go to Dollar Tree - for most people this doesn't seem like a big deal but for a person with driving anxiety, it feels like a big deal. My new motto is "Do it scared," which seems to be working. I found not just one flavored soda, but two! I picked Grape, by the way in case you were wondering. Riveting stuff, I know. Next, I went to Goodwill.

Finally, I drove home and unloaded the groceries. I also took a shower with led candles because apparently our light fixture is fried and we need a new one. I put on comfortable clothes and now I'm drinking my bubbly soda and going to watch one of the second-season episodes of Love is Blind on Netflix. I forgot to tell you, Aiden wrote his first book last week and I helped it come to life, it's a cute story and I'm so proud of how well he communicated his ideas. If you're interested you can buy it on Amazon.

Today, wasn't actually the best day ever, and maybe not even the top 10, but for once in my life I could relax and go with the flow without being too incredibly overstimulated. I had an overwhelmingly nice day doing simple things and that's all I could ever ask for. I am happy and fulfilled today and that's enough for me. Sometimes it's the little things.
