I’ve missed a few days again – oops! The holiday season is a busy one that’s for sure.
Thursday was our office party at the BC Club in the Bank of America building downtown. It was a gorgeous place with delicious food. It was so fun having Colin there with me, getting the chance to meet everyone I work with.
My kindness for Thursday – following my friend Jess back to her apartment so we could then drive into the city together so she didn’t have to worry about driving. Luckily Colin drove me home so I didn’t have to worry about driving either! Good times all around.
My kindness for Friday – I had to get the inspection sticker replaced on my car (thank goodness that’s over with for now) and then gave Colin a ride into work. After I dropped him off and was headed to 93 N – I was stopped at a light where a man was asking for money. He was holding a cardboard sign and looked like he was freezing – it was so cold on Friday. I actually had cash on me (which is extremely rare) so I decided to give him a few bucks. Regardless of what this money went to, I’m happy I made this man smile. He was freezing his butt off and I was sitting in my warm car on my way to the job I truly enjoy. I had just dropped off my amazing boyfriend who I’m very much in love with and I was about to give my mom a call on my drive to say hi and chat. I had exciting plans after work and a fun weekend ahead. He was begging for money in the chilly Boston air at a stop light where most people were pretending he was invisible. He deserved that money and I hope he got a lot more.
My kindness for Saturday - I went to the Christmas Reflections show at Boston College with Colin’s sister Liz. I thought it was so nice that she asked me to go, plus her friend Julie was dancing in it so I wanted to see her perform. It was a great show!
My kindness for Sunday – Last year I got the Elf on the Shelf and some other goodies to send to the Preschool class I worked at the year I volunteered in Chicago. This year I wanted to do it again, so I headed to Target and bought a really cute Doctor’s set, a Diego puzzle, a Disney princess memory card game, playdoh and a Christmas book. I wrapped it up nice and will send it off to Chi-town (with love) tomorrow!
Meg and I have been busy watching Elf and making Christmas treats. Time for bed soon. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
*PS – Stay tuned for the kindness half way mark, a fabulous Somerville gem, an amazing event with the Celtics and more coming up this week!
