Oh happy day! I was able to video chat with my grandma yesterday! It was so great seeing her precious face. I cannot put into words how much it made my heart soar to see and hear her. We, of course, had nothing of consequence to say to each other. My main goal was to confirm her address so that her birthday gifts would safely get to her. It was confirmed by a direct source, haha. I originally asked my aunt, who lives in the same town. She was off by 1 number and said she was 90% sure. I was not taking any chances, needless to say. (My grandma will be 82 years old, fyi.)
I also was able to video chat with my former mime coach yesterday and that was great. I was able to check up on her husband, who is in the hospital recovering from COVID. He is my former jr high math teacher. I passed along a funny message to him through her. I feel like he needs a chance to smile and/ or laugh. If it means that he laughs at me, I am okay with that. Laughter is the best medicine, in my opinion.
I have to go back to work tomorrow. I am not looking forward to the heat, unpleasant people, and waking up at the crack of dawn. Me and mornings do not get along. Enough said. I do enjoy my job, overall, just to clarify. No place is perfect. I recently got a raise too. That was a pleasant surprise.
I decided to pull my old couch out to the curb tonight by myself. It is not heavy, just bulky. It has set on my porch for 2-3 weeks and had to go. A neighbor of mine showed interest but has not been showing initiative to pick it up. I had enough of the waiting game. Lo and behold, another resident of that house took initiative and put it on their porch tonight.
Also, I am supposed to get my yard mowed by him tomorrow. That is a blessing. I gave him gas money for the mower. I was going get that done tonight but I fell asleep waiting for someone to pick up something else. I was also waiting on it to cool off some to start mowing. I woke up just before dusk...haha. Oops!
Well, I am out of here for now. Talk to you later. --Your friendly neighborhood couch puller
