Something Good- Day 330-332

I did not feel well at work on Wednesday and went home a little early. We watched a show until I felt better. Then, we went to the grocery store to get a few last minute Thanksgiving ingredients.

We woke up early on Thursday to start cooking food. My sister made me chilequiles for breakfast. We realized shortly after that we forgot a key ingredient to our meal. Luckily, we were able to find someone that had it to spare. I was grateful to feel much better because there was quite a bit of shoveling to do before leaving the house.

I went back to work today. It was pretty quiet because most people want to be at the store rather than the bank on Black Friday. I forgot my lunch, but my sister was kind enough to bring it while she went shopping with a friend. I cruised around one store with them, but we avoided most places because they were too crowded. We did get in a bit of online shopping though. After work, we went to a friend’s house for a Thanksgiving meal and some games. It was fun, and they sent us home with leftovers.

We had to relocate our garage cat temporarily because our basement renters are allergic. Luckily, one of our friends was able to take him in. He has been there for a few weeks, but we were able to stop by to see him today. I was glad to see he is doing well and has been adapting to his new environment.

This is not a normal year. I think we are all craving light and happiness and joy a little more this year. So, even though I absolutely love Thanksgiving and feel that it is extremely important to express gratitude at this time, I am all for Christmas lights this year. Today we went to a friend’s house to drop off some puzzles for them. They unexpectedly invited us to eat dinner with their family. Afterwards, we drove around looking at Christmas lights and then watched Polar Express to end the night.

Friday after work I planned to go to a friend’s house. I stopped at a gas station to order pizza so it would be ready by the time I got there. Unfortunately, I ordered from the wrong location. I was so frustrated with myself and hungry that I sat in my car and cried. I messaged a friend to help calm me down while I waited for another pizza to be made at the right location. I was grateful she was available, and I felt much better after eating and spending time with my friends.

Yesterday was a warmer day. The snow had melted off the lawn, which allowed us to rake leaves we had left on the ground before the snow. We also cleaned up the garage and finished some laundry. I was grateful to accomplish so much during the day, and then get to reward ourselves with some shopping afterwards.

We went to my friend’s house on Friday. I have not been able to spend much time with her lately because of traveling and work. Especially with so many of my coworkers being sick, I did not want to take any chances. It was nice to see her though, even with masks and social distancing.

We did a garage sale on Saturday, which was a little crazy because of the cold here. We told people to come around to the side door and made a path through the snow. Only a few people came, but we made a decent amount and got rid of some stuff we did not need. It has been nice to declutter the house a bit, even though there is still more I would like to sell. Then that night, we watched “Annie get your gun” at the local high school. They did a great job, and we were all very impressed.

Today, we were able to do home church for the first time on television. We decided not to attend in person when it started back up because my sister is very prone to catching illnesses, but they finally decided to broadcast our congregation this week. It was nice to see familiar faces on the screen and participate in a way.

I had work off today. It was Veteran’s day, so the bank was closed. We met up with one of my sister’s former teachers for lunch. It was fun to get to know her and for my sister to be able to see her. Afterwards, we did some bargain shopping and got some amazing deals.

It has been a while since my last post. I have been falling asleep quickly the past few days. Wednesday and Thursday were slower at work. I dropped by the store on my way home to pick up some items. Then, we watched a show before heading to bed. It was my favorite, The Good Doctor, which I am so glad is back.

Thursday morning, I moved our cat back to the garage after having him upstairs for a few days. Our other cat was not getting along with him, and I decided he was a bit too active to be a house cat. He seemed to do better with eating after we moved him back.

Friday we decided to go out to eat since we got a coupon in the mail. The leftovers lasted us two more meals, so it was not a bad deal.

Saturday, we had a friend come over for a bit. We had lunch and dinner with her and watched a movie while my sister finished homework.

I went back to church today for the first time in a while. We have been cautious about going back to church because quite a few members tested positive for Covid a few weeks ago, and we cannot afford to get sick. It was a good meeting though, and they said they plan to start broadcasting the meeting so more people can participate in the future.

Today is my sister’s birthday. We left my brother’s house early this morning to spend some time with a couple of her friends on our way back home. We also stopped a couple times along the way to shop and eat. We were able to find the last book of a series she has been collecting, as well as several movies and books at the local thrift store. We ended the night with one of her favorite desserts, pumpkin cheesecake.

We spent most of Friday night packing for our trip to see family. I did spend some time with a friend that I had not seen in a while, as well.

Saturday morning, I went to get an oil change and have my tires serviced. Afterwards, I donated plasma, and we went out for lunch. We arrived at my brother’s house a little later than planned, but the kids were excited to see us.

Today was pretty mellow. We had home church, then watched some movies and played with the kids. At the end of the night, we took the kids for a drive to see Halloween decorations.

This has been a busy week at work, trying to fix problems for customers. I have been working with this couple who had a very frustrating situation with their account and were ready to leave the bank over it. Luckily, I was able to get it resolved for them. The wife was so grateful that she brought all this food to the bank as a thank you. I was just happy I could solve this for them because it is important to me that people have their needs met.

After work, we spent time with a friend and showed her a house that has amazing Halloween decorations. Here’s just a small glimpse of it.
