Greetings everyone! I hope you are all doing as well as you can be. I know these are challenging times and we are all going through our own struggles. To those who are having a particularly tough time, try to stick in there and let me know if I can help. Here is tonight’s Thursday Rundown blog post…
Our STUFF Has Arrived – I wish I could say it was smooth sailing with our moving company but that wouldn’t be completely accurate. Despite some conflicting estimates, less than stellar customer service, missed deadlines, and other head scratching moments, we finally received our cargo today. After the movers dropped some boxes and clothes off here in Spokane, I met them in Pullman where they transferred all of the big stuff into a storage unit. I look forward to the day when we can move it from the unit to our new house.
Waking Up to Snow – I couldn’t help but laugh when I woke up yesterday morning to snow. Sure, I was greeted with snow when I arrived in Spokane on March 13, but it was still technically winter. I guess I just assumed that since it is now spring that the white stuff would be taking a break for several months…dang, it really has been a long time since I lived here. To make the situation even funnier was that it was 75 degrees and sunny in Myrtle Beach.
#ThrowbackThursday Parent Style – When you are at your parents’ house, why not take a photo of their childhood portraits? These photos show my dad and mom when they were toddlers! I looked at them really hard and could see my dad pretty distinctly in his portrait but I had to squint a little harder at my mom’s.
Sure, I’d Try It – This evening in Walgreens I stumbled down the candy aisle and saw Birthday Cake Cookie Dough Bites. I am a big fan of the original Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites AND I love anything that is birthday cake flavored so this treat was definitely calling my name. However, I decided to pass. Perhaps I will indulge once our country is out of this coronavirus mess.
Wish Man – I am in the middle of “Tiger King” so I can’t write about it tonight but I can offer another Netflix recommendation. If you want to take a break from Exotic Joe, I highly suggest “Wish Man.” If you are in the need of some inspiration (and I know many of us are), take 90 minutes and watch this film. It will make you cry and make you go to bed feeling good. I don’t want to give too much away but the movie tells the story of the man behind one of the greatest nonprofit organizations on the planet.
Despite the craziness in our world right now, I hope everyone can find a little bit of joy in their weekend. Keep thinking positive and keep praying; things will eventually go back to normal. On the positive thinking note, just 21 days until my family joins me in the Inland Northwest. Don’t Blink.
