This week I am thankful for:
3.14 ... We had a coworker that made a peanut butter pie & brought in to celebrate Pie Day! I have never had a peanut butter pie before - oh my goodness. DELICIOUS. & perfect in the middle of a crazy work day!
Who would think working late is a good thing to be thankful for? It happened to be a good thing though when I stayed for one issue & another one popped up. I'm glad I was still in the office to help with some glitches that were happening. That was good timing.
I had to stop & pick up my mom's medicine & lately, in our area, its been a total nightmare at pharmacies & trying to get your medicine. The wait is so long & if you do a drive thru, we've sat for nearly 30 minutes. How crazy is that? Inside is just as bad. So when I picked up my mom's meds & I was in & out in 15 minutes, I felt like I wont the lottery.
March Madness Kickoff
We had a kick off at work with pizza & basketball on all the tv's at work. They had a pop-n-shot little basketball competition set up. The only time I enjoyed March Madness - my bracket was literally DOA by the end of Thursday night. No joke - by the weekend, my final 4 were all knocked out - LOL. Not my year.
Storms Missed Us
Y'all know I love me some storms - but we had some really bad ones come through that were producing tornado activity. It was funny because I didnt even know they were near. A friend text me & asked if we were in the storms path. HUH? I was outside reading & knew storms were coming & was just staying outside until the rain came. It had gotten dark & windy, but no rain ever happened. I looked up the radar - & the big storms were just miles up the road. I could see the clouds & lightning. It was really something to see... & we stayed dry the whole time. Nuts.
I love this online store. Its like a consignment store where you can find new or gently used items. Their goal is to help the environment - keep clothes out of dumpsters - & who doesnt love a good deal on clothes? I have gotten brand new items with tags still on them for more than half off what it would cost in a store. I need some new blouses with Spring coming & just got 4 more for around $50.00.... $50.00 FOR 4 BLOUSES!!!! & they are all so cute. You can look for a specific brand you like of clothes, or purses, or shoes & you can even focus on brand new things. I am all about this store. & you can even send in some things & they'll sell for you too. I'm ready to clean out my closet & send a big ole box.
Our youngest, Lindsay was in town this past week & we were so glad to see her. Last time she was in town was Christmas 2020 - when COVID was in high gear & they recommended not being around people. We saw her in a driveway & kept our distance - so this time, it was great to be able to hug her & spent time catching up.
It was awesome that Lindsay was in town this weekend too because they had a skating event to raise money for MS for our friend that just passed away. Hubby & I hadnt had on our skates in 10 years - a whole DECADE. I thought for sure I was going to bust my face.... but look at me - I stayed up the whole night. Now, I wasn't as smooth or carefree on the skates. Old bones break more easily, right? but we had fun putting our skates on & more than anything - we were happy there was a celebration of life for Tony. Its like the Hubby said - it was like he was there. We had skated so many years where Tony was running around doing his job - running the session - working in the office - taking care of issues. So in our minds, he was busy running around the place. & in spirit, we think he definitely was there.
|There's Lindsay on the right... she has the skating gene

Hubby still has his too in our closet
Tell us something good in your week!
