i suppose that over all, i've had a fabulous day. i got my year-end evaluation to read (still have to meet with mark) and it's mostly good. :) I finally finished reading the Silmarillion (... been reading it since right after Christmas, I believe......). I got my tax rebate from the Feds! Woo for having $1195 with which to pay bills next week. *dances happily about the house* and i got new books. but my hands still hurt. gr.
