Things Are Falling Into Place
Saturday, September 12, 2020
I want to say something. In one of my former blogs, I wrote that I was shocked to hear that one of my coworkers weighs 200 pounds. I used the word "shocked" not because I look down on people that weigh that much or more; I meant that I was genuinely shocked because I always thought that she weighed much less than that.
In addition, I am moving NEXT weekend (the 19th to be exact).
Next Friday, my parents are going to help me move as much stuff as possible into my friend's new house, and I will spend that last night at my current apartment. Then on Saturday, my friend and I are going to bring the last of our stuff to her house, and that's when we will actually move in.
I bought an office chair, which I'm in love with!!!
I called the furniture company this morning, and they said that my dresser and nightstand can indeed most likely be delivered next Saturday too!! I look forward to seeing and using my new furniture!!! I've never had a real dresser and nightstand before!!
Then the following Monday (the 21st), I'm finally going to buy a new car! Hopefully, the 2021 Honda Civic will be out by then, and I can compare it to the 2021 Toyota Corolla, and buy the better looking car.
My court is reopening on the 21st. Next week is the last week us workers can park for free in our building's garage. So, I'll have to resume taking the bus again, which will be a drag. Also, to promote social distancing, my unit has been divided into 2 teams. The coworker I share an office with has been placed on a different team than I, so unfortunately, since our work schedules will be different, I won't see him for the foreseeable future. I feel really sad about this, because we always have so much fun talking and laughing about things (he's not the new mean coworker I blogged about before). Oh well.
I don't remember if I blogged about this, but my bed was delivered last week. I'm not too happy with it.
Yesterday, I treated myself, and bought 2 new Burt's Bees lip balms--one in honey flavor, and one in hemp flavor. The honey one smells nasty, and the hemp one smells too much like perfume. Hopefully, they will grow on me.
I am being careful with my sugar intake. Ever since I had that wakeup call about my diabetes, my life will never be the same.
As much as I'll miss my parents, I look forward to having some distance from them. My dad keeps asking me how much I paid for this or that, and it's really annoying. My friend grew up privileged, and her parents keep telling her to buy quality goods, whereas my parents keep telling me to buy the cheapest of things. It's interesting.
I'm wondering how much net pay I'll get in my next paycheck, since I increased my TSP contribution, and Trump's payroll tax deferral will be effective (I can't opt out of it).
