Something Good- Day 141-142

I did not feel like posting last night. I felt hurt and depressed and just could not think of something good. I have learned, though, that most things get better in the morning. I know that if I can just fall asleep, tomorrow is a new day. Luckily, I fell asleep relatively quickly last night and woke up in better spirits.

We packed our bags and gifts tonight to take to my brother’s house this weekend. I am looking forward to spending time with my nieces and nephews again.

Something Good- Day 132 & 133

I was able to donate plasma again yesterday. I stopped donating after being sick, so it has been a few months. After that, we had dinner and I went to bed early.

Today we went to the store and found some gifts for birthdays and Mother’s day. We will be seeing some of my family in a couple weeks for Memorial day. I am excited to spend time with them again.

Something Good- Day 123 & 124

Yesterday we organized the house a bit, fixed a bookshelf and rearranged furniture. Then we worked on our mother’s day gift. It was good to get some work done.

Today we were we able to do a video call with my parents, sister’s family, and brother’s family. It was good to see everyone and be able to spend time with them, even if it was virtual. I cannot wait to be able to visit them in person again. We are planning a trip to see them in a few weeks when restrictions lift.

Yesterday was a catch up day. I washed all my clothes, got an oil change, switched out my winter tires, and then helped my sister with her homework. It was not an exciting day, but I was glad to be able to do everything.

I was able to have church with my family today. We did a video call and had music and a lesson together. We are planning to do it again next week and may even be able to get more family participating. It was nice to feel a little closer to family and be able to see them more.

Something Good- Day 111

Today was incredibly busy at work. It did not feel overwhelming, but we kept busy the entire time. At the end of the night, one of the tellers was missing a large amount of money, and we weren’t sure what happened. I am grateful for how we all work together though when someone needs help. I helped my coworker look through everything. Then, my manager helped. We were there later than we should have been, but it was such a good environment.

Prior to this time of quarantines and social distancing, I was passively looking for another job. My coworkers all knew I disliked working at a bank and did not intend to stay long. Now though, I am so grateful for my coworkers and the care the bank has shown me as an employee. I have been humbled by this experience, and it has brought me closer to my coworkers. It is in times of darkness and hurt and loneliness that we find out what lives in us and those around us. We find out what means the most when it matters most.

Something Good- Day 107

We had a game night with our renters today. It is nice to be able to spend time with other people simply because there are more people in our house now. Before social distancing was necessary, I had started doing a connection night to spend time with friends and get to know people better. I was sad that it had to end, but I am grateful to have a little of that back with our renters.

Something Good- Day 105-106

I took my car in to the shop today and got a rental car. My sister has already fallen in love with it and wants me to buy it! I was also able to try Wendy’s maple bacon chicken croissant for breakfast since I had time between dropping off my car and the start of work. It was absolutely delicious! I will definitely be getting it again. After work, my sister and I went for a ride in the rental car and cruised around to neighboring towns.

Yesterday did not seem worth mentioning last night. I went to work, had dinner, and watched a show. It was not a bad day, though somewhat stressful, and nothing really noteworthy happened.

Today was my first day back at work since I took a couple weeks off. It was nice to be back and see my coworkers again. I was grateful to be able to catch up on all the work I missed while being out. There were a few things that were missed while I was away, but my coworkers took care of everything else for the most part.

Something Good- Day 103

We decided to dress up for church this morning. I have not dressed up for church since they were all closed for social distancing, but I think I might do it more often because it does help get you in the mood for worship. It was nice to study and watch videos about Jesus’s life and resurrection. We were then able to have dinner with our renters and then go out and do some chalk art. We did not stay out long because it was cold, but I finished this one.

Something Good- Day 101

We worked on our garden yesterday. We pulled weeds and trimmed trees and bushes. Our neighbors also had someone working on their garden. He gave us pointers about how to take care of raspberries. It was extremely helpful because I don’t have much experience with gardening and our raspberry bushes needed a lot of work. When he was done, he said goodbye and got ready to leave. However, he changed his mind and decided to help us trim and clear out the bushes a bit before leaving. We were both very grateful and it was nice to have someone to talk to for a few minutes.
