Hopefully, with any luck, this is the final post in the COVID Diaries series! Tomorrow is Ditch Your Mask Day here in Washington, and I can’t wait to see everybody’s bare faces! We have been through a lot this last two years, and I’m ready to move forward.
Spring is creeping up on us in the Pacific Northwest, the robins are arriving, and the birds are singing their morning songs. My morning commute on days I’m in the office is finally not mostly in the dark. The early spring flowers are popping up. And we are getting some sunny days between the cloudy and rainy ones. New life and the signs of winter fading away do so much for my spirits!
I had planned to get up early this morning on my Friday off and head down south a bit to check out a new beach – I want to do some agate hunting! But my car had other ideas. It started having some issues with the door locks last weekend, and the CD player, so I dropped it off at the shop on Tuesday morning hoping they could do some quick diagnostics and figure out what the problem is. Unfortunately, they are backed up, just like every other business, so here it is Friday and they still haven’t had a chance to look at it. Sigh… Hopefully today will be the day.
Thankfully I was easily able to just work an extra day from home this week, so I really didn’t need my car for much. My mom took me over to the chiropractor yesterday. Seeing that I’m stuck around home for another day, I’ll try to make the most of it and get into another day of purging and cleaning.
Wish me luck! It’s hard to stay motivated, but when you have an end goal in mind, I guess it gets a little easier.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
