January has brought a lot of high points and some disappointing lows.
High: We have been pet sitting a ferret the past week and it’s been so much fun. He’s the sweetest, best tempered ferret I’ve ever seen. Yes, he gets into things and he poops on our floor but can’t blame him. He’s in a new place and he doesn’t have his big cage to go in.
Low: He goes home soon and we are going to miss him a lot but we aren’t in a position to get a pet at this point but he’s really making us want one.
High: Lots of things to photograph this month including the ferret, a baby shower I helped put together for my friend and nights out.
Low: My cell phone was crashing a lot and I couldn’t take many photos. Picked up the replacement today so hopefully I can start getting more photo memories going.
High: Planning a trip in a couple of weeks back to the states, will visit the parents and some friends. Get to drive my car for a couple of days, been a couple of years!
Low: Visiting a grieving friend which will be hard.
High: We are going skydiving during this trip!
Low: We are going to be jumping out of a perfectly good airplane on this trip! 😀
High: Spending a few days with family and friends I have missed will be wonderful.
Low: Not long enough
High: Got to Skype with my friend last weekend, always fun!
Low: Last few weeks since Christmas have flown by and I have failed in making phone calls to my parents and my grieving friend which has been on my “Things to Work On in 2015 List”… Calling more often.
High: Lost a few pounds since Christmas just by cutting portion sizes a bit and chasing a critter around.
Low: Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot is incredibly uncomfortable and a new addition to my list of ailments. Hopefully, it will go away soon now that I’m stretching it more.
High: Loving Japan
Low: Counting down now to when we leave Japan (we don’t know exactly when yet). We like it so much that a year plus is too close.
High: the Step-daughter wants to come out to live with us.
Low: Her mother is working her evil magic on her and putting ideas in her head to keep her there.
Woke up not feeling well this morning, hoping this is just exhaustion from chasing a little shitter around for a week.
Oh and I’ve decided this year I will be focusing on not complaining so much, internally or vocally. Time to shut up and fix it.
