Feel Good Friday

YaYu took this sunrise view from the high school last Tuesday when they had to go in early.

And another lovely week comes to a close! It was actually a very ordinary week, but good things still happened:

  • Brett and I had a coffee date at Starbucks on Monday, paid for with the gift card I received for Christmas.
  • There were no errands nor appointments this past week. My time was my own.
  • I had a great time at the girls’ swim meet and potluck last Saturday.
  • I rode my exercise bicycle this week for 15 minutes every morning and evening for a total of 48+ miles, and 1900+ calories burned.
  • WenYu’s and I are going to Colorado in April! The total expense for the trip wasn’t as much as I feared, although my plane ticket wasn’t cheap. We’ll only be there for two nights, just to visit the college, and then will turn right around to come home.
  • I read Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and was inspired to let go of a few more things in our already-downsized house.
  • We put $6.83 in the change/$1 bill jar, and went over $1000 saved in just a little over a year!
  • I rocked my vegan diet this week, and feel great!

How has your week gone? What good things happened for you?

  1. That’s a great list! I was at an offsite this week, so I feel like the week slipped away without me accomplishing anything! But, I did manage to cook every night (save for my work dinner evening, where M took the boys for a planned meal out), & I worked out 1x, (not awesome, but an improvement over most crazy weeks) & I’ve been making better use of my time to try & minimize nanny costs. It’s not a big list this week, but I’ll take it! 🙂


    1. I think it’s kind of amazing that if you look back at the week a lot more good things happened than we realize. Some of them are small, but added up they make for a pretty good week most of the time. I’m keeping a little notebook this year, and every night before I go to bed and write down the good things that happened that day, no matter how insignificant they might seem. Even looking back to just the beginning of the month I can see how many good things have been going on in my life.
