Day 266.

Happy Thursday! I’m so ready for the weekend. I’m overthinking a lot right now. I just need to chill out. I hope everything will be fine. Ahh!

It was an earlier day since the sister had a dental appt. I played tourist with my aunt. She went back to her old stomping grounds near the Embarcadero. A stroll down memory lane! It was fun. Afterwards, I went to work. It was a pretty good day. Earl gave us our Christmas presents early. I’ll be handing out gifts before Xmas break. Gotta coordinate that soon.

Animal Crossing update: Pashmina was out and about on Mango. I purchased a robot at Nook’s Cranny. It was a pretty eventful day. I’m still waiting for the snow.

I’ve got another busy day tomorrow. I just want it all to go well!! I’m going to recharge and study this weekend. I’ve gotta make progress. I’m also at a crossroads in my life. Must make moves.

I really want a good night’s sleep. Highlight of my day: my purse arrived today!! The first one I ordered never arrived. I don’t think it’ll get to me anytime soon. Kind of a bummer. 😞 I’ll reach out to customer service again.

Well, I hope you’ve all had a nice day! Take care.

Good night.

Day 265.

LOVE.

This day always makes me sad, but very thankful. It’s been eight years since my maternal grandfather (Lolo) passed away. He was a smart, kind, and funny man. I keep you with me every day. I’m sure that you and Lola aren’t too far away. Continue to guide us and to keep us safe during this very interesting time! 💗

We’re halfway into the week and I’m feeling it. But I had a good day! I had a sluggish start tbh. I couldn’t get out of bed until I had an hour left to get ready. 😬 I hate running late, but I made it in time.

I played a game of football, Kahoot!, and badminton with the boys. I’m so tired. 😬😩 But it was a lot of fun. I gotta practice throwing my spiral.

We had Vietnamese food for dinner. I caught Jeopardy for our Lolo. It was his favorite show. We watched Wheel of Fortune and The Masked Singer! I was entertained.

Animal Crossing update: Pashmina has moved in! Snow will be arriving very soon on Mango. Yay!! ❄️

It’s a busy Thursday and Friday for me! Gotta take care of some paperwork too. Hoping to sleep early tonight. I need all the rest I can get.

I hope y’all had a nice day. Take care!

Good night.

Day 264.

I had a pretty good day. Happy December and Happy Tuesday! I slept early last night to pick up my night guard this morning. Turns out it still isn’t ready! 😞😩 So I’ll have to reschedule again. It’s a little frustrating. I hope third time’s the charm.

I took a much needed nap before work. Time moves too fast as of late. Holiday break in 2.5 weeks! Can’t wait. I’ve got things to mail out such as cards and gifts. It’ll all get done!!

Animal Crossing update: The holiday festivities have begun! Christmas trees and lights are popping up on my island. I’m still waiting for snow. I’m selling more things I don’t need and putting things into my storage.

I showered early. So proud of myself! Typically I wait until the end of the night. Love the clean feeling!

I’m excited that one of my Lesportsac bags will be arriving. Not sure about the first order I placed. I hope it’s found, but not feeling confident right now. Hello Kitty rules! I also got my Sanrio goodies in the mail today. Hurrah!! 💗

Well, that was my day. I hope everyone had a nice one. Take care!! 😷

Good night.

Day 263.

I had a case of the Mondays today! It’s difficult returning to my usual routine after having a week off for holiday break. But today went well!

I’m ready to sleep. I’m so sleep deprived. I also have an early morning. I hope to finally pick up my new night guard tomorrow!

My mind is pretty tired right now. I need sleep! It’s hard to stay awake. My eyes are getting heavy.

It’s the final day of Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month! I hope I was able to educate someone this time around. Giving Tuesday is tomorrow and I plan on donating to the PHA!

Well, this is good night. Btw, on ACNH, Vivian is moving out. She’s all packed up. I wish her the best!

Take care!

Day 262.

Happy Sunday! My holiday break is officially over. Tears! But that’s okay. There’s so much to look forward to in the next few weeks. I love Christmas! It’s an exciting time despite a tough year.

I finally got to practice driving! I was tired when I woke up, but I decided to do it. If I don’t practice, I’ll never gain confidence. It went well! I even practiced some parallel parking. Woo!! I’ll improve. I know I can. 🙂

My treat for the day was ordering my favorite dessert! It’s always delicious. I really love hojicha. 🧡 I also got to try Fatburger. I watched the Niners game in its entirety today. Great team win! We needed it. Glad to have Mostert, Samuel, and Sherman back!!! ❤️💛

Animal Crossing update: I got my turnips! Woo. And my friend Amy visited my island. Everything is a WIP. Like I said – I’m revamping for all the holiday stuff. Can’t wait!!

I took a much needed nap after my very eventful day. I plan on studying again this week. I’ve been so focused on work that I haven’t focused on my online class. I hope to complete my module this week.

Lastly, it’s a scary time in the SF Bay Area. California as a whole. Please continue doing your part during the pandemic! It’s important to keep your distance. Be safe!!! 😷

Take care and good night!

Day 261.

Happy Saturday! I took advantage of another day of sleeping in. Glorious!! Those are the best kind of days. Cooking for the last few days has wiped me out.

We decided to order in for lunch. We ordered Mexican. Huevos rancheros ftw!! Afterwards, I hung out for a bit and then decided to take a nap. Much needed.

SF is back in the purple tier. Cases are surging! It’s terrifying. 😱😔 I’m returning to work on Monday, but I’ll be well prepared. We’re not out of this pandemic. It’s still very much here. Don’t be complacent!! Please continue doing your part.

I’ve been browsing Black Friday specials and looked at Small Business Saturday deals. Didn’t buy anything. I’ve done my share of supporting small businesses this year! I do need holiday cards and some new rubber stamps. I know where to go!

Animal Crossing update: It was a typical Saturday. I’m still cleaning up the messy parts of my island.

Doing a load of laundry. So very important! I’m going to do a bit of reading too. Might play ACNH again.

I plan to drive for a bit tomorrow morning. I need the practice! Yup.

Well, that was my Saturday. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 260.

TGIF!!! Where did the week go?! I can’t believe my break is almost over. I’ll enjoy the weekend. A day at a time is my mentality right now.

I got to sleep in. It was nice! I decided to browse some Black Friday sales while I was in bed. I only bought a few things. I’m being really reasonable!

Animal Crossing update: Mango is chill. I miss Turkey Day already. Must get ready for Christmas! I’m really excited. I’ve said it before.

Washed the dishes and stuff we used yesterday. I really don’t like having things sit in the sink. I like everything clean. Took me 30-45 minutes. After that I seasoned the iron skillet for an hour. I’m new to it! I only seasoned it once. It’s recommended you do it 2-3 times. Maybe next time. Love the skillet! We finally cooked the filet mignon pieces. It was good. So many leftovers too!

We just watched Dateline. The stories are always very interesting!

Lastly, I’m remembering Harvey Milk and George Moscone tonight. It’s been 42 years since their passing. RIP. ❤️

Enjoy the weekend! Take care and be safe.

Good night.

Day 259.

Happy Turkey Day! 🦃🧡 It was a different kind of celebration, but I’m so thankful for everything. 2020’s been a trying year, but I made the most of it. I’m planning to finish strong! I’m blessed with family, friends, shelter, food, and so much more. It really is all about the little things. Perspective. I hope everyone had a nice holiday!! I also wanted to acknowledge the Ohlone tribe – the Indigenous people of the SF Bay Area. ❤️

The sister and I went ham in the kitchen. We made oven baked mac & cheese, heated up the Omaha Steaks thanksgiving package, finally made sweet potatoes with marshmallows, and so much dessert! I’m stuffed. We’ll be cooking the steak tomorrow. Didn’t get a chance to tackle it today. Leftovers too!

Animal Crossing update: Turkey Day with Franklin was a lot of fun! I got all the items and the DIY recipes. It took a while, but my villagers pulled through with their trades. I fished for a while. 😂 Good times. Back to a normal day tomorrow. 🍁

I’ve been listening to so much Little Mix and Ari too. I ordered the signed Stuck With U CD a few months ago. Turns out the signatures are auto penned. 😦 Found out on Twitter. Haven’t received mine yet, but I know people aren’t happy. Yeesh!

Might look into some Black Friday sales, but I’m pretty picky when it comes to certain items. We’ll see.

I’m pretty tired. But I’m planning to watch the last epi of The Queen’s Gambit before I sleep tonight. Woo!

Lastly, our cousin gave birth to her son today! We’re aunties again. 💗 So exciting! I hope we can see everyone soon…maybe 2022?!

This is good night. Take care!

Day 258.

It’s Wednesday! Happy Turkey Eve!! 🙂 There’s so much to prep tomorrow so I’m planning to sleep earlier than usual.

I spent most of my day watching TV. I’ve got two episodes left of The Queen’s Gambit. I’m honestly hooked! I took a long nap after lunch. It was much needed.

Animal Crossing update: I got to tidy up part of my island! Win!! Looking forward to the holiday festivities tomorrow. 🦃🍴Should be a lot of fun.

I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately. It’s a mix of holiday, contemporary, and the Y2K era!! I’ve played my uke two days in a row. I’m learning some new songs.

This time of year is about being with family and friends, but it’s super important to celebrate at home. 2020 has been very different, but may our actions now preserve holidays and celebrations for the future! We can do it!!! 😷❤️ Be mindful of our essential workers too – we owe them so much!

Take care and good night! May you all enjoy the feast. Celebrate responsibly!

Day 257.

Happy Tuesday! 😄 I stayed up watching The Queen’s Gambit. I’m hooked! Beth is such a fierce character. She’s a badass!

I got through some chores today. We’re getting the house ready for Christmas too. Time to put up decorations! It’s always so much fun putting up the tree.

I even got a chance to restart Becoming. My goal is to take it slow during break. I feel like I rush my self during a work week. It’s important to take your time. We’re all works in progress! I hope to finish the book by 2021.

I’m really missing family and friends, but it’s best to keep our distance and catch up online. The news is overwhelming over here in California. We’ve gotta buckle down and get this virus under control.

Animal Crossing update: I’m starting to sell the random items that I dumped on my island. I’m also putting things in storage. CJ is in town! He’s a lot of fun. Must sell him more fish.

I’ve been feeling quite tired and a little off. I just hope it’s fatigue. I’m not eating too much junk nowadays. I’m being super mindful of what I put in my body.

Time to blast some tunes and unwind. I hope y’all had a nice one! Take care.

Good night.
