I've never felt so happy that a lady-friend of mine is complaining about how she's being treated, but I'm ecstatic.

She got Covid and was put in the ICU, now she's in a rehab facility complaining about the nurses, facility, food, etc.

Happy!   Happy!   Joy!   Joy!

Sounds like she's going to pull thru.
Great news.  A friend of mine just finsihed a 3 week bout of covid that had him on the edge of hospitalization (and would have been had there been capacity where he lives). His comment to me yesterday was that it is good to be able to breathe again. He was also likely one of the unlucky souls who was on his second round as he likely had covid in July as well. I'll be celebrating once I get vaccinated, that's for sure!

DW's great aunt is 92. She had flu like symptoms so she got tested and found out it was Covid. She was fully recovered two days after the test. This really is the damnedest virus.

It took me a couple reads to understand this post.
My grandmother was the quintessential grump. But we learned that as long as she was complaining she was in relatively good health and spirits. It was only when she stopped making such comments (“...oh, everything is ok I guess”) that we worried.

Even with the stock market shenanigans the last few days, as of our end of month accounting we've tipped over into three two commas!  I know it will go back down, but it's the first time I've seen it :)

Edit - Thanks @dreadmoose for pointing out that sadly, I am not a billionaire.

3 commas... you're a billionaire?

Congrats if it's true... though I wonder if any billionaires are hanging out on MMM forums. Also major congrats if it's millionaire and I'm missing something.

Hahahaha.  No.  I'll fix that.  I was too excited to correctly proofread, I guess!

I'm also excited because this year I'm going to get to max out my 401k!  I've had it all planned out in my budgeting spreadsheet with expected raises, etc., for a few years, and I'm super excited to finally be here :)

I accepted a job offer!!!! Whoo! My commute is going to drop significantly. It's less money (different field, different pay range), but I'm really excited for the work itself. The people so far seem great. And I will be getting out of my dysfunctional current employer :)
