Good Things This Week

So. It was another pretty okay week last week. Not that anything super-amazing-over-the-top thing happened to make it that way. No…it’s been my own continued determination to do better and focus on the good that has created this change lately. And you know what? I’m alright with that.

There were a few good things this week that stand out in my mind as bright spots.

Monday night the girls and I went out for a little retail therapy. Lil’ Mo had some birthday money she wanted to spend, and even I managed to find a couple of items for myself.

On Tuesday, CBG and I successfully adulted. After avoiding it for a long time, we finally went out and got life insurance. I know, I know…it’s something we both should have done a long time ago, but we’ve been avoiding it for a long time now. Well, on Tuesday night we took the plunge and I feel pretty good about that decision. Of course, after all that adulting, we stopped and picked up ice cream on the way home. Because balance.

Also on Tuesday night we had a great phone chat with Rugrat, who called freaking out a bit about a presentation she had to do the next day. We talked her down off the ledge a little bit and made her feel better about it. She called us again on Wednesday night to tell us that the presentation went GREAT! And she felt really fabulous about the whole thing. I’d definitely call that a long distance parenting win.

On Thursday night, CBG and I went out to a local coffee shop for Trivia night. And even though we got thoroughly creamed, we had lots of laughs and had a good time together, doing something new that we haven’t tried before.

Friday night we indulged in our usual ritual: CBC made us wings and we lounged on the couch together, watching a movie. It was great to unwind together after a busy work week.

Saturday morning we flew out of bed at the crack of dawn and headed down to The Farmer’s Market. We caught the sunrise and wandered around a bit, something we haven’t done in a long time. It was good to feel more like “old Sunshine and CBG” again. After the market we headed out for a greasy diner breakfast before we ran some errands together. Things are feeling relaxed, easy, and loving between us again. It’s not without some effort some days, that’s for sure. But it’s an effort that we’re both more than willing to make.

And one more good thing? We’re one week closer to spring. Spring!
