I have been wanting to do ‘good things’ for a while now. Became a 2010 goal to start doing this, and thankfully I did! Im looking forward to finding the little joys in my days this year.
1- Jason built us our first fire in the fire place
2- Watched Paper Heart + Brothers Bloom with Jason cuddled up in my favorite blanket
3- First Core of 2010 went well. Largely due to one of the students building us a new computer that made things go really smoothly.
4- Dinner with friends who are leaving in 4 days to go pick up their little boy in Ethiopia
5- Got a tour of the cat-walk at church. One of the coolest things ever.
6- Started doing my Jillian DVD. I hate her, but its still a good thing since Im trying to get in shape.
7- Cooed Baby Sam during his fussy hour.
8- First birthday present came in the mail! Fancy chief knife from my aunt Susan.
9- Free coffee table from an old co-worker
10- The boss was away on vacation and the kids didn’t seem to notice – in a good way (no crazy stuff went down basically)
11- Jason turned 32 – he enjoyed the little things I tired to do to make his birthday special, even day 3 in bed sick.
12- My friends helped me celebrate turning 28: Lunch with Amy D and dinner at Lucky 32 with Jenilee
13- This day kinda stunk, but Jason felt a lot better which was a highlight.
14-Got a gift to the spa from my boss. I already thought he was the best boss ever, this just proves it. (And I thank his wife greatly for her influence on this idea)
15- Jason spent many of efforts in trying to cheer me up from a very bad day. It was sweet
16- A lot of really good things happened this day. Highlights being: we adopted Oliver, tea with some girlfriends for my birthday and the Pell’s arrived home with Baby Johnny
17- Played Underground Church after the Core and no water fountains got knocked out of the wall.
18- Started my journey of learning how to crochet! (A Chrismtas present from Sarah S)
19- Spent 6 hours in a mini bus with 8 rising Seniors to spend an hour and half at our Fall Retreat 2010 camp. It was really good and very encouraging.
20- My friend Melissa brought over make up birthday dessert and we shared a pot of tea together.
21- Planned out summer over cheese fries.
22- After taking Oliver to the vet and finding out he had a cold, he seemed worlds better this day. Eyes wider and less sneezing, in just a day!
23- Breakfast with friends we hadnt seen in a while. Showed Brian and Sarah ‘Royal Tenenbaums’ for the first time.
24- A really great conversation with a volunteer that made me miss even more having a small group of my own.
25- Only worked till 10:30am at Starbucks – felt like an extra day off. And officially changed my last name!
26- First meeting with students after school in many weeks. A lot of them found out they got into college, proud of them.
27- Had friends over for dinner. Jason cleaned up while we chatted and that made my day.
28- Brought dinner to the Pells and got to hold their 4 month old niece who is one of the happiest babies alive.
29- Watched the dirty version of ‘That Thing You Do’
30- Snow Day! Watched three movies, cat napped with my cat and baked lots of cookies. Jason helped reorganize the kitchen.
31- Crochet a pot-holder size square that doesn’t look half bad!
