Day 66/365 {Not just coffee}

I had a really, really, really shitty start to the week. Multiple things have gone wrong both on the client front and on the staff front. I came in to work early this morning to deal with some things, but really all I wanted to do was curl up in fetal position, suck on my thumb, and rock back and forth.

While I was deep into doing some research, Sonia walked into my office and put a cup of coffee on my desk. I was like, uh, what’s this? She said she brought me coffee because she knew I was having a shitty week.

Sometimes, things can get shitty in life. But then when you have friends like Sonia, who reads your mind before you even realize how you are feeling, the shitty-ness all of a sudden does not seem so bad.

Day 57/365 {Jewels}

10 days ago, I may have teased you a little with the photo from our visit to the SPCA.

Jewels adopted us and took us home. She’s a 4-year-old short hair and manx mix.

We have been taking our time getting to know her. We really don’t know much about cats. So far, we learned that she loves her hair brushed, she likes the bottom of her chin scratched, she runs to us when we’re eating, and she has chosen Savanna’s bed to be her own.

We are loving having Jewels as a new family member.day-57-of-365-angela-chang-photography

Day 56, 59, 60, 61 {Catch up}

I do not enjoy catching up on posts. But I don’t have anyone else to blame. So. Here we go.

You’ll notice Day 57 and 58 are missing. I’ll post Day 57 separately. I am not able to post Day 58–not because I don’t have a good photo to post. On the contrary, I quite like my photo from Day 58. But Josh didn’t have a shirt on in the photo, and he says only people in our family can see him without a shirt on. So I’ve been banned from posting that photo online. You’ll just have to take my word for that it was a good photo.

Day 56:

The last day of our girls’ weekend, I suggested to Savanna we go for a bike ride after dinner. She enthusiastically agreed. We rode to Earnest Icecream to get her a treat, and to get me some exercise. By the way, that hill coming back up Quebec from E.2nd to 10th just about killed me.

As we got into the store, I realized I had forgotten my wallet. Seriously. To disappoint a child right in front of the icecream counter–I get the crown for the worst mother in the world. Thankfully as I was explaining to Savanna that I didn’t bring any money, the lady behind the counter offered us free icecream. Yup, you heard that right. She said, Don’t worry about it; it’s on us. Savanna got her “Serious Chocolate” icecream, and I was filled with gratitude.

Thank you, Earnest lady, you saved my night.

Day 59:

Savanna laid out a dinosaur family and asked me to play. While I have zero interest in dinosaurs, I am so glad she wants me to play with her.

Day 60:

Savanna and I regularly play Zingo and GoFish. Josh isn’t really interested in those games. He is really interested in drawing, and unfortunately I can barely draw a stickman.

The other night, Josh said he wanted me to draw something with him. I stared at the blank piece of paper, and I have no idea what else to draw than a corporate organizational chart with rectangles and triangles.

Yes, I am that sad.

He then came up with this idea that he’ll teach me how to draw. So he gave me a lesson on how to draw a bird. I think I did pretty damn good!

Day 61:

The building across the street from my office looks like a beehive to me, with little busy worker bees. I’m pretty sure they look back at me and think the same thing.
