Day 271: Good and Bad
Sunday, September 27, 2020
"Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement, and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success." (Brian Adams)
Quarantine Day #191
Hello, my lovely friends!
Once again the winds have brought the smoke and haze from the wildfires here and in Wyoming. It got pretty bad yesterday. We had the windows open all day, but late afternoon it just came in minutes with the winds. It was so bad that many of us on the community FB page thought there was a huge fire nearby because it smelled so strong, but nope it’s the wildfires. It’s going to hang around here until Monday.
We had such a good Friday! My mom’s Thursday was not so great. The van needs to get the emissions done and her registration sticker. I looked up everything online and it stated in bold letters one person only. My mom decided to go by herself and both places are 10 minutes away from the house. After about an hour she came home and I thought that was easy. She said she got air in her tires first and then went to the emission place and could not find it. She has been driving around for thirty minutes looking for it and decided to come home. She was upset and said she was talking to my dad and telling him how mad she was that he’s gone because he took care of all that. I told her that I would go with her on Friday morning and if they say only one person I’ll jump out and hang out in the parking lot.
On Friday we went to the emission place and not one person said anything about only one person in a car. Even the guy next to us had about three kids in there. We were in and out within ten minutes. We decided to do her sticker online because the DMV told everyone on the news to do it online. When we were done we went to Home Depot to get some things and my mom bought two big mums, so pretty. We were having a great day until we went online and they said she had to go to the DMV to get it done. I’m assuming because she’s over 65, but that’s annoying. They tell you to keep your senior citizens at home and safe, but you have to go into the DMV where lots of people are. I mean???
Regardless of that crazy part of our Friday, we had a great day, much better than the day before.
Here we are again coming to an end of another month, but we’re starting my favorite time of year! I’m starting to put the ideas for the October blogs together. I’m really trying to be organized about it because I always end up winging it and I don’t want to do that.
Be safe! BIG HUGS AND LOVES TO YOU ALL!!!
