Day 311.

Happy Sunday! Happy Birthday to our dearest Lola and a Happy Anniversary to our grandparents!! We miss you both so much. 🥳🎂💖

  • It’s been a lazy Sunday for sure. I was supposed to clean and do laundry, but thankfully I’m off tomorrow for MLK, Jr. Day. I’ll take care of everything then.
  • We ordered brunch for Lola’s Bday. She loved celebrating! I ordered a carnitas omelette. I also placed an order for dessert at Matcha Cafe Maiko. We tried the flavor of the month, Strawberry Calpico.
  • I watched a bit of the NFL playoffs. I’m rooting for Tampa Bay. I was rooting for the Browns, but KC won with a slim lead. I’m rooting for anyone but KC. I said what I said. 😎😂
  • Facebook is an eco chamber. I’m really not a fan of it anymore. I’m only on there for family and friends. I don’t use it all the time.
  • I can’t believe Inauguration Day is this week! I’m excited, but also a little nervous. Time to turn the page on the last four years. Absolutely dreadful.
  • I want this week to go smoothly. Last week was a lot. 🥴
  • We’ll be watching Gossip Girl tonight. I need to continue reading my books.
  • Animal Crossing update: I bought my turnips! I stayed up until 5am just to buy them because I knew I wouldn’t get up in time. 😂
  • Well, I hope y’all had a nice Sunday! Take care.

Good night.

Happy Friday! TGIF!! Glad it’s finally the weekend. I’ve got a few days to myself and it’s back to work. I hope my test gets processed before Monday.🤞🏼

  • I set my alarm early to take care of my COVID test. Providers are EST. I got up before 9am. It was quick and easy.
  • I took a walk with my sister to drop it off at UPS. Afterwards, we bought bagels and doughnuts to bring back. Yay!

Day 301.

It’s been an overwhelming day. I just want everything I need to do to be done already. Ahhh! I’ve been way too anxious. 😭

  • Had to resolve some logistical things again. I hate feeling frustrated. From my understanding, I think all is okay.

  • I’ve felt more tired as of late. Doing my best to take care of myself.
  • My driving lesson for next week has been canceled. That means I must practice on my own. I’m feeling confident! 💗

  • My break is winding down. I just hope I can return in time! PLS. That’s where most of my anxiety is right now.

Take care and be safe! 😷

Good night.

Happy Monday! 😄

  • I woke up a little late, but I got up in time to drop off a letter at the mailbox.
  • I worked on another training for work. I did it! I did have to redo the course on my phone since my certificate wasn’t loading on my laptop. Very odd. I’ve got one more to get through. I’ll work on it tomorrow.
  • We ordered Japanese for dinner and some snacks. It’s the best! It was a little stressful since one of the apps wasn’t loading properly. It all worked out though. It was nice to see our BFF and her niece too. Aww.

Day 294.

Happy Thursday! I can’t believe it’s New Year’s Eve!!! 😱

Here are some memories from 2020:

  • Spent the first few days of 2020 in London! I miss traveling. 😭 That would be my only flight of the year.
  • The Super Bowl and celebrating our birthday all of February! Our visit to Yosemite was a highlight. Life would change drastically a few weeks later.
  • One final happy hour in March. Then the world shut down. 💔
  • Invested most of my time playing Animal Crossing and I learned the uke!
  • I watched so many tv shows and movies. My sleep schedule was all over the place.
  • Grateful for everything in life especially my health, family, friends, work, and safety.
  • I’ll even put online dating down. 😂 It didn’t work out, but it was a life lesson.
  • Pinayista! 🇵🇭❤️
  • The election! 🇺🇸

It’s been a ride. Here’s to 2021! Please stay safe and be well. 🥳🥂💜

I cooked and I baked today. Beari was also coughing. I hope she’s okay. Felt the mini earthquake this morning too.

Btw the paper crown I’m wearing is from London. I decided to bring it back with me since I didn’t get to wear it last NYE. It’s cute! 👸🏻

This is good night. I’m so sleepy right now, but I gotta make it to midnight. I’m about to play Animal Crossing too. 🥰

Good night!

Good night.
