What’s Good in Tater Town 10/25/20

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.

It was my first 5 day in a row work week since i went back to in person work. I don’t like it. I have two days to become independently wealthy so I don’t have to go back. I don’t think I’m going to make it. Let’s find the good.

  1. We went for a hike last Sunday. It was good to get out of the house for something fun.
  2. Dinner with my son on Monday.
  3. Labor Day means another three day weekend.
  4. The weather cooled off just in time for the long weekend.
  5. Watching the Kentucky Derby with my daughter.
  6. After two people dropped out of our fantasy football league at the last minute we were able to find two new people so we could still play.
  7. Braves baseball on TV.

I think that’s it for the week.

This weekend we enter the time when good will be even harder to find. We are back to the empty nest so I don’t even have my TV time with my daughter to help overcome the bad of my work day. I have to be at work tomorrow afternoon when she is home for a dentist appointment. I might just stop doing these.

1. One last week spending time with my daughter before she moved to her apartment.

2. Two night of dinner with my son.

3. One of those nights was food truck night.

4. One last family game of Life.

5. No trouble moving her into her apartment.

6. Her negative COVID test result came back in time for her to move.

7. I was finally able to mow the yard.

I think that’s it for the week.
