I went to my mom’s new place with a friend of hers to help do some piddley stuff around there this morning. It was a good little chunk of fix ups done in a few hours and it got me a couple of curtain rods for my place and two metal rods to make raised bird feeders that the squirrels can’t climb.

Energy-wise it was an extremely slow morning. I couldn’t get my ‘get-up-and-go’ going a hundred percent until much later in the afternoon. I nearly opted to do groceries a different day, but I knew that would just make me frazzled as far as time goes so I didn’t choose that route. I am so glad I didn’t because I saw a co-worker from my old job at the grocery store and I hadn’t seen him in a couple of years. Turns out he is about to leave the same place as well for partly the same reason I did, but it’s now a thousand times worse than when I left about 4 years ago. Considering how much it is stressing him out, I am so glad to hear he is cutting himself loose and I know he’ll find something better if he chooses to find other work.
He is easily one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met and I was so glad to run into him randomly this afternoon!
