Every day since last Friday has just gotten better and better.
Sunday, yet again, I slept in a bit. Not as much as I’d have liked, but sufficiently. I got a lot accomplished that morning. Got some laundry done. Went to my in-laws’ place and fixed a doorknob and their mower for them. Picked up Jacob, who had stayed with his grandparents so that Coleen and I could go to the party. Went grocery shopping. Went to Dagan’s and gamed for a good 8 hours or more straight. AWESOME! I got to play an evil force user.
Need I say more about the game? I could. But I’d release too much of my geekery upon the world, and we can’t have that.
Monday, I got quite a bit done at work. Both works actually, and I was just generally in a good mood all day. A rarity for me up until this last weekend. I really think this last weekend was the injection of light I’ve been needing for a while in this crappy tunnel I’ve been traveling through.
Tuesday, was in a good mood yet again. Had lunch with Connon at Wendy’s. Greasy food and friends. Plus, I had an awesome idea, which will receive it’s own post later on. Still hashing things out in muh head. Work at the second job went well too. Was complimented by a few customers, and that always makes my day. About the only bummer was looking through the video game section when I was on my break and realizing they don’t make the kinds of video games I like any more. Eh well. Can’t afford them right now anyhow.
Today, I had to do the court run at work. I love doing it. I get out of the office, and get out into the world. I get some time to myself, and I can get out of the house a bit. Tried red beans and rice for the first time. OMFGWTFBBQBADGERS! I never knew the stuff was so good. I’m going to have to work on my own recipe now. I love cooking, and cooking something hearty and yummy is my favoritest. Mine will likely have beef bits added in. MEAT. mmm… Anyhow, I also feel a sense of accomplishment. I got a really good deal at Fry’s on an ergonomic keyboard and mouse. We’ve been needing to get one for Coleen because she’s got two slipped disks in her lower neck, which is effecting her shoulder and arms with various symptoms. The keyboard helps keep her from straining and irritating the disks, and tissues around them, which prevents pain and such. AND, she doesn’t have to take muscle relaxers which mess her up, and are expensive. YAY.
Also today, I get to spend time with Jacob. It’s one of the things which is quickly making Wednesdays my favorite day of the week. He got his report card in. One C+, the rest are As and Bs. C+ was in handwriting. It’s to be expected. He’s a ten year old boy who hates reading and has dyslexia. Whatchagonnado… He’s also about to test for his blue belt in Karate. It was just mid-february when he got his advanced yellow belt, and he’s already advancing again. It’s kind of costy to pay for the test, but it’s well worth it. He’s gotten so much self-confidence from the karate that it’s been a huge difference. Now if only he’d learn a touch more self-discipline…. But like I said, he’s ten. *shrug*
All in all, it’s nice being happy again.
