Still Grateful…

I can’t remember the last time I was this happy to see a Friday! This…was a rough week. I refuse to speak about work now that it’s done but trust me…things are happening that shouldn’t be happening.

I got my car back yesterday…new battery and new starter ended up costing me $941.00. That’s going to hurt for a while. Some of the women at work were freaking out about how I overpaid, etc.  Look….I don’t have a mechanic I can trust, they have been fair about everything else so why wouldn’t I go there and use Honda parts. This car has to last me forever…well at least five more years. I certainly wasn’t happy about the money but I was grateful for the service I received. This side gig helped it not hurt as bad as it could have hurt. Who knows, maybe that was the whole reason for this side gig?

Last night I met the framer to get more pieces for the weekend..holy moly is my back seat full! I don’t relish the thought of two trips but that’s what it’s going to take. The Girl came with me because she wanted to meed KB’s new puppy.  I have hardly seen KB this Summer let alone meet their new pup. He’s cute but damn is he a lot of work. I don’t envy her the work.

He wants to chew on everything! It was nice to catch up while the Girl got some puppy love.  Her daughter said to me “I was just talking about you to my therapist.” I looked at her with my eyebrows raised and said “why, what did I do?” She laughed and said “No, I told her how I miss spending time with you.” Awe…..It’s true we haven’t been to a yoga class in almost a year and she lost interest pretty quick in the cooking classes. I have hardly seen KB all Summer and now she is back to school. I told KB’s daughter we would do something after I’m done with the Ren Faire.

KB took me into her dining room and showed me the old photos she just inherited. What a loot!!!  Old photos like that are priceless, especially when it’s your family. We were oohing and awing over the photos when KB said “I have something to show you.” I shrugged my shoulders… okay? She led the way and I followed her upstairs. She recently went through more of her husband’s things and came across this….

I had to buy a wireless keyboard and I will need to buy a stand for it but right now this frame easel gets the job done. I was so sad about not being able to buy a new laptop and then this little Dell fell in my lap. It’s funny how that works….Now I’m back to the gratitude thing….

It’s been an emotional couple of days…maybe it’s me…or maybe it’s the moon? Oh….I learned one more thing today….

Party at my house 2/16/2020. It’s a long wait but I’m sure it’s worth it……Zia
