this is my roommate’s cat, meet Scout
My one down this week was facing reality that a relationship that I thought could be something long-term won’t ever quite make it there. (Here‘s the post in case you missed it earlier this week.) There’s just a lot of emotions and I’m still working out how I want to handle them all.
Earlier this year I sold a plush Ikea chair on Craigs List. When the couple showed up they were so so friendly. She was super pregnant and she and her husband had plans to turn the chair into a rockingchair using a DIY tutorial they found online. About four months later I emailed them asking if they wanted the ottoman that goes with the chair for free. They showed up within the week to pick up the piece. I thought that was going to be the end of it, but this week I actually recieved a Starbucks giftcard in the mail with a note saying “Thanks so much for thinking to contact us for the ottoman! Appreciate it!. Honestly, they didn’t even have my last name, the envelope just says to Chrystina, but it really was such a nice gesture and it made me smile from ear to ear.
