Something Good- Day 345-349

Thursday night we watched a Christmas light show in our neighborhood. We did a video call with my mom and nieces, so they could watch the show as well.

I went to a coworker’s house on Friday night. We ate and talked and then wrapped presents. It was a nice break after a very hectic day at work.

Saturday we went out for frozen yogurt with a friend. Afterwards, we went to her place to play with her dog. Then, we took her to the light show that we had watched on Thursday.

Sunday we did home church and went to visit our cat that is being homed at our friend’s house for the time being. We also watched the movie, “The Christmas Shoes,” which is one of my sister’s favorite holiday movies.

Today was a good day at work. I actually got out on time, which has not happened since we made recent policy adjustments. After having dinner and doing some dishes, we watched “Elf” while eating treats.

I have not been posting these lately because we have been trying to see as many lights and Christmas movies as possible, which often means getting to bed later than I planned. I have been enjoying this time though and look forward to continuing to celebrate the holidays.

I have realized that it doesn’t do me much good to come up with one good thing every day if I don’t actually do it every day, so I’m going to try to be better about posting this every night, even if it is not perfect every time.

But for now, I’ll catch up on the last few days. We have been short staffed at work since Friday. The nice thing about that is my boss has been buying us lunch, so we can have a working lunch instead of our usual hour break. On top of only having two tellers on Friday, our system failed overnight and the transaction program we use was out of service for the first half of the day. The day went surprisingly well though and aside from a couple minor setbacks, we had a pretty smooth day.

Saturday, we got another cat! I told my sister that it was fine as long as he was a garage/ outdoor cat because our indoor cat does not share space well. Then, we spent the day with friends. I bought pizza and dropped my sister off to watch movies while I went to donate plasma.

We spent a lot of time with the cat on Sunday and had some church time with my sister’s family.

Monday was another busy day at work since our assistant manager had to go home due to possible Covid exposure. I was a bit overwhelmed, but my coworkers are awesome and helped calm me down. We made cookies with the kids Monday night, and I ate quite a few cookies.

Tonight we watched a movie I had rented from Redbox since they gave me a free rental. The kids were looking forward to pumpkin painting/ carving, but we decided to do that tomorrow instead.

I called out of work on Monday because my stomach was acting up. I spent most of the morning sitting on the couch because I was worried that lying down would make things worse. When I felt a bit better, we went grocery shopping and then decided to take a trip to see the llama farm. The kids and my sisters loved it.

Tuesday was a busy day at work, catching up with everything I missed Monday. We went to Costa Vida for dinner and then watched a movie before heading to bed.

Yesterday was a slower day at work, which was good because our cat started having issues and I was able to come home early to take her to the vet. He said she was impacted and cleared her out. We gave her a bath when we got home. She seemed to do much better after that.

Today was another good day at work. We were able to get everything done without too many issues. After work, we went out to eat because I had a coupon at one of our favorite places. They messed up our order and gave us dole whip for free to apologize. I enjoyed it, but my sister brought hers home to the kids because she was full already.

We had a barbecue on Tuesday with burgers, chicken kabobs, and corn on the cob. It was delicious and made even more delicious by the fresh vegetables we picked from our friends’ garden.

Yesterday we were able to ride horses at my friends’ house. The kids loved it. They were also able to pick vegetables and drive the riding lawnmower.

I went over to another friend’s house for a bit this afternoon. We got to talk and catch up.
