A few weeks ago, I requested work off for next week with the intention of having another job. I figured that if I got another job, I could start right away or I could simply take a week off if I did not get the job. I had no idea at the time of my request how crucial next week would be. My sister will be coming to visit because it happens to be the same week as her sister-in-law’s wedding. I have a home inspection that needs to be done, and my car will need to be taken in to a body shop for repairs. So, I was very excited to leave work today because of all the things happening next week. Another good thing that happened today was seeing a former coworker at Wendy’s while we ate dinner with a friend. It was good to be able to talk about what is happening and everything going on at work right now.
I have been looking into foster care for about a year. I have slowly been trying to end my Airbnb business to start renting out my basement to make that happen. Today, my sister set up a Lego table and chairs we bought a while back because we are planning to have family visit next week. It was exciting to see how it all looked and to think that we might be so close to starting foster care.
I was sick yesterday, so I was not able to finish my something good post for the day. I woke up feeling a lot better this morning and was able to go to work. We were able to go to the grocery store yesterday to get some soup and other things while we are sick. I am grateful to be feeling much better today though.
My something good for today is getting home safely. We hit a blizzard on our way home today. The snow was heavy, and visibility was low. Luckily, it only lasted about 20 miles. After we got through the worst of it, we saw a bad crash with multiple cars stuck in between the two sides of the freeway. We narrowly missed another car that was also part of an accident. It cleared up after that though, and the rest of the trip had clear skies. I was grateful to make it home safely after that.
I really like drawing. I do not get the opportunity to draw very often because I have a lot of other things going on in my life, but I always draw for my nephew when I come to visit. It is one of my favorite things to do with him. He is really into Pokemon right now, so I drew him some Pokemon today.
There is nothing better than family to me. I was able to come to visit my brother’s family for the weekend because I have Monday off work. It is so good to be able to spend time with my nieces and nephews. I am also looking forward to seeing my other nieces in a little over a week!
I have been struggling with accepting a new coworker. She seems nice enough but our personalities clash, and I am appalled by some of her actions. Today, my manager took me aside to talk. She said she felt some tension between this coworker and myself and wanted to know how to help. We talked about my frustrations and concerns. At the end, she thanked me for my hard work and told me to let her know if there was anything she could do to help me enjoy my job more. Sometimes I get frustrated with my managers. I wonder why they make certain decisions and if they have my best interest at heart, but moments like this help me realize that they really are trying and want me to succeed. I am grateful for that, especially since I will likely stay in this job for longer than I expected. It is good to know I am appreciated and heard at work.
