1 month until I turn 31. I’ve been 30 for 11 months now and wow! A year ago I was dreading turning the big 3-0 and well, it hasn’t been bad. We are on our journeys.
I lost my dermal piercing yesterday. On Tuesday, I noticed it turning red, then yesterday I saw the foot showing. Sent a picture to my piercer, Zach, and he advised Minute Clinic to get it out. Practitioner Schaefer took care of it, not painful at all and antibiotic for 10 days. Bittersweet moment, but it was more of a pain than what it was worth. I’m too active and it wasn’t a match. I’m thankful for Zach’s help and it wasn’t as painful as I thought.
After I got home, a rare derecho hit and we’ve been without power since noon yesterday. I took off from work today and tomorrow. I’m grateful my great aunt is letting me stay with her. I’m grateful she called when I thought I wish I had someone like Nan. Parents are in Cape May and was feeling anxious with no power. It was a good evening.
My aunt dropped me off at home for a few hours. I told dad about the fridge. They’re coming home tonight instead of tomorrow. The ice machine started to leak and power company is saying tomorrow at 11pm. Still some damage, but I’m sure COVID complicates a freak derecho. I’ll still stay with my aunt. I’m so grateful for her kindness.
Yesterday after the storm hit, my neighbour let me charge my phone on his generator and the other neighbours offered to help. I’m verklempt.
What are you thankful for today?
