January 2, 2013:
1. New shoes! I got new work shoes (see above) and also new boots. As you can see, Sean also got new work boots, too.
2. Sitting in the sunshine with my puppy. I just sat outside on the ground and soaked up some rays. It was a nice change of pace to the overcast and rainy weather we’ve been having lately.
3. Nice phone calls with friends. I talked to two good friends today, and it was just nice. 🙂
Person: Today I’m grateful for Michiko. She is the director of the guinea pig rescue I volunteer with, and just all around awesome. She knows life has been a little hectic for me lately, and called today just to check up on me and see how I was doing. I really enjoyed talking to her, and felt much better afterward. We also made plans to have lunch together tomorrow. 🙂 I honestly don’t know how she does all of the amazing things she does for the rescue PLUS work full time PLUS go to law school full time! (I have a sneaking suspicion she doesn’t need sleep to function). Anyway, the rescue wouldn’t run without her, and I’d probably have about 20 more guinea pigs than I do now. Thank you Michiko for teaching me that it’s ok to let other people adopt them so that I can help save more, haha.
