1) I got a surprise day off from work, even if I didn't do much with it.
2) The trip out to work wasn't a complete loss: I was able to drop a check in the mail that needed to go out.
3) I got a bill paid and spent the Amazon certificate I got for Christmas.
4) I successfully cooked a pot of rice, and it only came out a little crunchy.
5) I cleaned all the dishes that got dirty today, rather than leaving them to sit out.
