Another lump post of my #100happydays challenge. It’s been quite the eventful week, and I’ve just been too busy to post.
The end of day 17 – last Tuesday – I learned that the condition that my brakes on my car were in made it no longer driveable. My dad was calling his mechanic friends to see how fast someone could get it in, but everyone was quoting him a few weeks. At this point, my life looked like it was about to get pretty complicated in terms of getting to work. I work in brand new developments where there are no bus routes. Ah! I called Curtis’ mom to see if I could borrow their van for a while, and not only did they lend me the van, but Willie fixed my car at his shop the very next day. I have some really lovely family that are always there for me. I don’t know what I would do without them all.
On day 19 I developed some sort of flu, and it has stuck with me. That’s usually how it goes with me though – I stay sick for a long time. That would normally make for a pretty crappy week., but in true #100happydays fashion, I’ve been embracing the positive. I’ve stayed home a lot, only leaving the house for class or work. Since I’m home so much, I’ve gotten lots of kitten snuggles! These two are just the best. I think they can sense that I’m not feeling well, because they are giving me a ton of love.
When I’m not in bed, I’ve been on the couch working on all my assignments. I feel really pleased with how much I’ve been able to do considering how awful I’ve felt. That, and the constant distraction of Wickham staring at me. He really enjoys eye contact with his humans.
The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi are on as well. And nothing makes me feel more Canadian than watching the Winter Olympics. I don’t think our TV has left CBC since the preliminaries started. And since I haven’t been sleeping through the night – oh the joys of being sick – I’ve been able to watch quite a bit. I’ve kept it on during the day while I’m working as well.
Overall, the past week hasn’t been awful. I have felt awful, but there has been lots of positive moments throughout. Kittens, Olympics, and especially lots of Curtis taking care of me. He’s the best :)
