Finally, the weekend! Still not feeling 100% great, but we're getting there. So thankful I work from home and don't have to do manual labor, but the brain is also not at its finest so it could be draining. Perks of WFH - I'm gross and stinky, but can still go to work. Non-perks of WFH - I'm gross and stinky and still have to go to work. I'm pretty much behind everything I want to get done, but I think pushing myself during work days and barely sleeping definitely kicked my immune system to the garbage.

Just when I was super excited for this week to come and go, the COVID hits the fam.
It finally happened after three years of evading the monster of a virus, it finally hit Bear and I. I was super excited to work this week because my boss is finally back from his leave. I had to go all mushy and emo about how glad I was, and the following day - dread. Absolute dread!
But let me assure you - we are now doing well.
Let me tell you one thing about this tho - I have never felt flu like this ever before. I'm just glad the ordeal went by fast.
Instead of pondering into nothingness and just contemplating my thoughts, I decided I'll just go ahead and jot them down... right here. When we got home, I was hoping I would have the time and mental energy to accomplish things but I guess I wanted to savor the last few hours of my vacation and welp, I binged, napped, and went around town instead.
It's been over a week and I haven't really done anything on my list:
Set up the store
Blah, blah and blah...
Needless to say, extremely disappointed in myself.
We are finally home!
I haven't updated in a bit and sadly a bit delayed uploading some videos but I am pretty very happy. Just a quick update, my 2-week vacation from work is about to end which is quite sad, but I think we've accomplished quite a bit in those two weeks. That being said - more updates to come!
A few weeks ago, our water heater broke. It was leaking from the top and the basement was starting to flood a little bit. I urgently had to call a plumber and unfortunately, it had to be replaced. We were billed for $1,200 and I had to file a claim for our Home Systems Protection through State Farm. They approved our claim without any issues but there was a $500 deductible. Many friends and family have been telling me about getting an actual home warranty so that's what I did on July 12th.
I was browsing online and like a lot of services, every company has both good and bad reviews. One of the "most recommended" companies was Home Choice Warranty. While I was still on their website checking out plans, I had to fill out my personal information and before I can even submit it, I already got a phone call from one of their sales rep - Matthew. I should've taken this as a major red flag for their hard selling tactics but I was still in the state of panic about expenses and things breaking. I was paranoid that what if one breaks after another - then I'll have to shell out another $500 and how many more $500 deductibles do I need to pay??
I entertained the offer and spoke with Matthew. Bear was at work and I didn't want to make a decision immediately, but Matthew made sure that if I sign up now I have 30 days to cancel. I was still hesitant, so he gave me what were seemingly great offers that was quite too hard to pass.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
