What’s Good in Tater Town 2/28/21

I can’t believe it’s the last day of February already. I’m looking forward to the nice spring weather. Here’s the good from last week.

  1. Dinner with both kids again Sunday night.
  2. My daughter stayed home for the week since her school was on a one week Covid sequester.
  3. Her being home meant less alone time in the afternoons.
  4. I got the nerve to submit writing to something other than my blog Monday. It wasn’t great writing and I have no expectations, but it was a big step for me.
  5. Driving my daughter to campus for her regular required Covid test got me out of the house Tuesday.
  6. Warm enough weather for me to read on the front porch a little.
  7. Out of the house again Thursday for my first weekly shift delivering food boxes for my church.
  8. More free birthday food. This time Red Robin burgers.
  9. This actually should have been in another week, but my son was accepted to grad school at University of Maryland.

That’s all I can remember from this week. Here comes March.

It’s already the end of January. Time is just flying by. I just finished my first week with no work and no kids at home. Let’s find the good.

  1. Dinner with my son Sunday night.
  2. Watched the ALA Youth Media Awards Monday morning.
  3. My first three days of writing were productive.

  10. Dinner with my son again last night.
  11. New SNL.
  12. It’s snowing and we will actually get a decent amount this time. I will ignore that it took me having nowhere to go anyway before we got snow day level snow.

That’s all for this week. Now I hope I can spend the day on the couch watching movies and enjoying the snow out the window.

November already. This year seems both never ending and very quick. Another week that makes me want to cry at the thought of leaving the house. Something needs to change. Let’s find the good.

  4. I saw my daughter this week.
  5. I was able to early vote without too much of a wait.

Another week of dealing with all the stuff I’ve mentioned over and over again. Lather, rinse, repeat. Let’s find the good.

  1. Ravens football on Sunday afternoon.
  2. Dinner with my son.
  3. Nice weather all week.
  4. I took Wednesday off due to a morning and an afternoon appointment.
  5. The morning appointment was canceled so I had most of the day off to relax.
  6. More new TV this week.
  7. Virtual pub quiz Thursday night.
  8. One last nice weather day Saturday to get yard work done.
  9. Kentucky football game was bad, but gave me an excuse to sit in the couch and watch football.

That’s all I can think of right now. No Ravens game today and it’s raining all day. Sounds like a good day to sit on the couch and read whole random football games are on TV.

I don’t really have much to say in a lead up to today so let’s just get to it.

  1. We went to the Ravens game on Sunday. The Ravens won and the trains ran consistently enough to get us in and out without a problem.
  2. The weather was perfect for watching a football game.
  3. My son came home for dinner and Spiderman Monday night.
  4. My new person started at work on Tuesday so we are back to full staff again.
  5. We got some much-needed rain on Wednesday.
  6. My son came back Thursday night to go to food truck night with me.
  7. Friday was my day off from work so I got to rest a little.
  8. My daughter came home for the weekend on Friday.
  9. Kentucky basketball’s Blue/White scrimmage was Friday night.
  10. That means we’ve reached the point of Kentucky basketball being on regularly.

It seemed like a long week. Probably because I worked Columbus Day for the first time in 25 years. I still think it is a good idea to open that day and close on Black Friday, but I did miss a random day off in October. Looking forward to the post-Halloween lead up to the holidays.

Well, that was a week. All the stress that was gone for a while came flooding right back in. Funny how that works. Still waiting on that rejection email, so that bad was delayed for another week. The Braves choked in the playoffs so baseball is dead to me for the year. Let’s see if I can find the good.

  1. The Ravens beat the Steelers and are back in first place for now.
  2. My son came home for dinner on Sunday night.
  3. There were a couple of days when the stress mysteriously disappeared.
  4. Kentucky basketball season officially started Friday night with Big Blue Madness.
  5. I worked Friday so that means I get two days in a row away from work after working 7 days in a row.
  6. It was a nice enough day yesterday to sit on the deck and finish my book.
  7. Kentucky football beat Arkansas last night.

That’s all I can come up with right now. I would like to say things might get better next week, but without a change in where I spend my days, I don’t think it will.
