Something Good- Day 355-359

We did a Christmas lights scavenger hunt on Sunday night. We drove around and looked for different lights and watched a couple light shows.

Monday we dropped off some food to someone in need. Afterwards, we came home and played games.

Tuesday we went out to dinner with a friend. Then, we went to the theater to watch a movie. It was good to spend time with her since she has been busy with school. The movie was fun, and the theater only had 10 people in it.

Wednesday we spent time with our teenage friend. We had dinner and then went to the store to buy my coworkers gifts.

I had to work this morning, but I felt better about going to work than I did yesterday. I gave my coworkers their gifts, and they shared a lot of food and treats with me. After work, I was able to go to my friend’s house for Christmas Eve dinner. We talked, played games, and spent time with her family. It was good to spend at least some of the holiday with her.

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.

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.

Yesterday we decided to decorate for Christmas. Although I am usually adamant about making sure Thanksgiving comes first, I knew it would make my sister happy. I think that given the year we have had, Thanksgiving can share with Christmas this year.

Today was our first real snow here. The roads were slippery, and most people chose not to go out if they could avoid it. The bank was fairly slow, which meant we got out right on time. We ate homemade dinner and then sat down to watch a show.

I took my nieces and nephews to a couple pumpkin patches today. They had a lot of fun going down slides, playing in corn pits, riding on wagons, and petting animals. We picked out a large pumpkin and stopped at the store to buy juice to drink. It was a fun day, and most of the children had fallen asleep by the time we returned home.

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.

I had a pretty good day today. I have been feeling a lot better about things lately and feel like things are getting easier. We did some more driving around to see Halloween decorations today. There were not as many houses in our area with large decorations, but we did find a couple cool houses. I was also able to “pay it forward” for someone today who was looking for cat litter. We had just bought some to have extra on hand, but I remembered all the people who helped us when we needed it and wanted to share the love.

We had a friend over for lunch today. We repurposed the pork roast we made last night into meat for tacos. It wasn’t quite as tender and flavorful as my normal carnitas but still good. Afterwards, we went for a drive to see Halloween decorations. We saw some pretty cool houses and made stops to take pictures with the beautiful sky in the background.

It has been a while since I posted. Friday we fixed up my lawn. We pulled weeds and mowed and switched out a sprinkler. Then we went to a friend’s house for cake and fireworks.

We left early Saturday morning to go to my brother’s house. We got there in time for lunch and were able to spend time with the kids. We went to bed late after a busy day with the family.

Sunday we had a video call with my sister’s family and then did a mini church meeting. We headed home after dinner and then went straight to bed.

Work was exhausting today, but we went to the grocery store afterwards. My sister committed to making healthier meal choices, so we stocked up on fruits and vegetables. Then we had sandwiches and wraps fpr dinner.

Overall, it has been a busy but good week.
