It was a good day. Saturday, I mean.
First, Lacey Cat woke me up sometime after 5 o'clock. While that might seem to be not so wonderful at first blush, it sure beats waking up at 3 as in yesterday's post. Having slept for 6+ hours rather than less than 4 hours was a good thing.
And she did it my purring in my ear. I really appreciated that because I have a significant loss of hearing. The loss mostly gets covered up by hearing aids during the daytime although not completely or perfectly. But I certainly don't sleep with the devices. However, she got so close to my ear that I heard the purr anyway. And a cat's purr is a very fine thing, especially when I don't hear it often (even with hearing aids).
The good times continued to roll later when we took a trip into the city. There, I was able to obtain a $400 rebate on my camera -- the one that I just had to re-purchase after I drowned the initial one. (My Two Thousand Dollar Photo if you're new and interested.)
I got the rebate because it was Black Friday (weekend), and that's how much the camera was reduced for a few days. When I had purchased the camera, I was told that there was a 30-day, price-matching guarantee included, so I was able to claim the reduced price.
So yeah. That was really nice.
Kudos to the store that told me of the offer and also told me to keep my eye on the website. The salesman even reminded me just a few days before Black Friday. Now, that's cool.
The only slight downer was the drive in to the store. It's not that it went horribly, but this was the longest drive since we had installed the snow tires. OMG! I hate snow tires! They are so freakin loud on dry pavement. I find it most unpleasant.
Not that the tires ruined my day or even came close to it, but they are anything but pleasant.
Now, if I only had the gumption to bother to take photos with this camera, but I am not very motivated.
