Thankfulness – It’s funny what small things are big things when it comes to thankfulness. Yes I’d be delighted to win the lottery but in the past year or so I’ve discovered two small things that make my everyday life easier and for that I’m grateful. Valentine’s Day at Starbucks was insane. Do people only drink coffee on holidays? Seems so. With the order ahead app, I was able to scoot ahead of 30 people. The other item is the red dot in my pond that signifies the electricity is on and everything is working. It’s the small things that make life easier (although I’d like to prove that a lottery win would be good too). Thank you to Sharlene and Alex for coaching me on both of those.
Time flies – Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of my brother and sister-in-law’s near fatal car accident. Considering their age (90-ish), they have recovered very well. It took a while for my SIL but you can’t keep an old broad down!
Another death – As you grow older there are more deaths. People died when I was a kid but other than my father, most were really old people (by kid standards) and were not a big part of my life. Every year there are a few less friends on this planet. It doesn’t matter what you say (he had a good life, he’s in a better place, etc.) it’s still a loss. I wish I could go back to that time when everyone was here and we were enjoying life.
Stalking ads – I’m being stalked by mental health medication ads. Does the internet know something I don’t? I haven’t researched anything remotely connected to that. Weird! Or is it?
Waiting… — We were notified that our power would be cut for about five hours for a repair. It rained on the scheduled date so it was postponed. There have been some nice days since then but no one showed up. The outage starts around 8 a.m. so I want to be showered and ready for my day. I’m retired. Early mornings suck.
So how was your week?
