The car accident

a.k.a. – Carried on the wings of angels

This is going to be quick because I’m utterly exhausted this evening.

This morning on my way to work, I had a car accident.  The road was very slick, and although I was going under the speed limit, I still lost traction and went all over the …

Angels are watching over me

This weekend I went to Boston to visit some friends. I had two experiences in the car that caught my attention – one a very ordinary miracle, and one an “angels are watching over me” miracle.

1) I don’t love driving in Boston.  It’s not the city traffic that bothers me – I have no …

Do the hard thing FIRST

At some point when I was in college, I came up with the mantra, “Do the hard thing FIRST!” I put it up on signs, which solicited many giggles – we were all frisky teenagers, after all.  🙂

For me it was never about tackling the hardest project first. Rather, it was about making the …

1 down, 3 to go

Perhaps some of you remember my posts from last summer and fall about how challenging my finances were.  About how ashamed I felt.  About how much I wanted to change my situation.  About how impossible that felt, but I was willing to try.

Perhaps you remember the 40-Day Miracle Challenge when I focused exclusively on …

My sweet little car

About two and a half years ago, my transportation situation was in dire straits – I needed a car pronto! Because the universe is so good to me, I have bought my last couple of cars from a wonderful man in Vermont named Tim. He sells and maintains used cars and I trust him completely.

The $700 car repair

It occurred to me today that I haven’t done a financial update since the beginning of February – and there’s good stuff to report, so let’s get caught up!

When last we talked finances, I was expecting February to be a lean month.  I knew that I’d make enough to cover my expenses, but I …

The car inspection miracle

A few weeks ago I took my car in to a local auto shop. It’s a place that offers really cheap oil changes and inspections and it’s convenient to my apartment, so it generally works out pretty well.

Except… because they offer such cheap services to get us in the door, it’s not at all …

The Miracle of the Mix Tape, part 2

The last week has been filled with stunning highs and unspeakable lows. My mind feels like it’s filled with a thousand bees that won’t stop buzzing.

One thing that has been a saving grace this week is the mix CD that I’ve got in my car.  It’s the CD I made after writing “The Miracle …
