Goodbye to February,
and hello March. Now spring is close, right? That would be just lovely, but my weather app shows nothing but rain and occasionally snow. Fab. But there is just nothing you can do about the weather. I’ll just hide inside and wait for better days.
Or, I could really use the weather to get back into blogging. Every month I think that now is the time to jump back in, but somehow, I don’t. I take notes, have a list of ideas and all, but hardly ever actually write. So for this month, I’m gonna put it on the top of my to-do-list to get back into sharing my thoughts with anyone interested. And I’m sure once I do that, I will fall back in love with it.
So after a rather rough start to the year, February definitely was better. I eventually overcame the flu that lasted for like two and a half weeks and also got my car fixed. And to make it all even better, I had a few days off, since it was my birthday and I hate working on that day. And this year, I made sure to actually make the best of it and have some fun. Which I did.
On my birthday, I started with a chill morning and then went out shopping with my mom. We also had a yummy late lunch and just overall a good time. I also got lots of presents from my family and since they stuck to my Amazon list, I now have so many new books and I don’t know when I will manage to read them all. But I love them. And I love birthdays. Not the part where I get older (I’m gonna turn 40 in EIGHT years) but the me-time, presents, cake and the fact that it’s all about me. Haha.
A day later is always Valentine’s day which obviously isn’t my thing as someone who has been single since forever. I met with my bestie and my cute godson at my favorite café and we just chilled and talked a bit. It’s just nice to have time in the middle of the day to do this. Why do I have to work full-time?! And I went grocery shopping and just bought everything I love. It’s often these little things that make my day. And since I had been sick for a while, I just loved strolling through the isles again.
The best day of February was probably the third day of my birthday celebrations. (Yes, I love to drag it out for as long as possible.) I had a whole day planned for my bff and me. She knows how I am with my birthday, so she always makes sure to make plenty of time and is up for whatever I feel like doing. So I took her to a trampoline park and we had so much fun. But wow, that was incredibly exhausting and a bit frustrating seeing all the kids just hop around easily. But we laughed so much at how unfit we are. I also took a nasty spill once and for a moment, we honestly thought I had hurt myself really badly, but I survived. My body ached for a few days but I didn’t have to see a doctor. That would’ve been so typical. So that was awesome.
And then we went out to a Chinese buffet and stuffed our faces. The food there is just so good and I ate so much, I had to force myself to stop cause otherwise, it wouldn’t have ended well. My food-coma was real but worth it. Afterward, we just chilled at my house and to be honest, I was ready to go to bed at like 9pm, which of course I didn’t, but so much for turning 32. I’m such a grandma. We also had a sleepover and the whole day was just perfection.
And then I had an absolutely perfect day in the middle of a work-week. I mean, how the hell did that happen? I hadn’t been to the office in forever, so I was celebrated like a queen. I also got more presents and had lunch with a friend at our favorite Chinese place. After work, I went to the nearby outlet mall and grabbed a few things like a new puzzle and finally found my way to Starbucks, where I actually got my drink for free. And just this whole day with all these nice little things was so lovely that I came home all smiling and in a very good mood. My family was very confused, cause I am not usually such a positive person – especially after work.
Another highlight was another trip to the outlet mall with my mom. We had a lovely afternoon and were actually successful. I bought a new jacket, some pants, shoes, etc. It was amazing cause I hardly ever find things while shopping. We had some yummy food and of course a basic-bitch-stop at Starbucks. Let’s see if I can reach gold status this year, now that I have one close by. But yeah, the day was so much fun.
The rest of the month was nothing too special, but I’m honestly so happy that I had some really good days that just filled me with happiness. I really need those and I hope that more will follow. But I’m also always a fan of a chill weekend with some puzzles, writing, reading and of course lots of sleeping. I have plenty of things on my list that I want to do this year, but for many of them, I need better weather cause they’re outside. So come one spring, show yourself.
Make some special plans for spring. Update your wardrobe. Cherish the little things in life. Pick up your favorite drink. Try something new. Enjoy a rainy day with watching movies and doing a puzzle. Reach out to people you haven’t seen in a while. Have wonderful month of March.
