What’s Good Wednesday?

We thought that we would take an opportunity on Wednesdays to share what’s good in our lives and welcome you to share what’s good in your lives! Please comment below and let us know what’s good! Feel free to be vague or specific. We’re just happy to share good things!


Jayden: We got a couch! It’s very comfy, we didn’t have to put it together, and it comes with storage!

A dark blue couch with pillows on it is popped out to a full sized bed.

The couch is closed to the normal size with an ottoman at one end.

Storage!
An all black kitty sits on the couch, which is covered by a sheet.
Kitty approved!

Richard has also been making me lots of delicious food this week since he isn’t working. He keeps telling me that he would make a great stay-at-home-husband, if only I made enough $$$!

Eggs and a biscuit

Richard: I’m available if anyone is looking for a kept man. Besides being Jayden’s Master, I’m also the snack master. I promise I make stuff without eggs too, she just doesn’t take pictures of them.

We moved! We’ve been in the new apartment for almost a week. It’s great. We’re exhausted, haha. We managed not to break our blogging streak, even though we had to put up a Sorry post on Sunday! Tell us something good going on in your life!

Richard: We got a tilty bed! And our cat let me put her in the carrier, because she loves me, and trusts me, and wants to snuggle me, and she’s doing so good in our new home!

Jayden: We’re moving tomorrow! Moving is stressful and time consuming and our feet and backs have been sore for days. But on the positive side, we’re getting a new bed tomorrow. (Richard: It’s a tilty bed! I can’t wait to try to sleep in the uncomfortable fetal position mode!) This should be the last day we sleep in the old bed. And, it is exciting to be officially living together. Plus *dishwasher*!

Richard: I’m excited to live in a building that I think was built in the last half century. This one had some charm when I moved in, but it’s really starting to show its age after a few years. We will have skylights (just regular windows, but still neat, and should help keep the bedroom cool), central air, and enough bathrooms for everyone. Also, washer and dryer just off the main bedroom. So much more watersports! THE BOX! (Jayden: The closet in the main hallway makes a giant box in the open living room. It’s pretty cool.) There’s a festival this week, and it’s way more fun than I expected. Even if my stomach does not approve of living entirely off of fried crap and beer.

Thanks for sharing in our good news! Please share some of your own!

We’re home from our writing retreat and it was amazing! Some days were lighter than others, but Jayden wrote 42,796 words and Richard wrote 30,757 words for a total of 73,553 words in a week! It was short of our goal of 50k each, but it was still pretty darn good. Earlier this month, we were a whopping 228k below where we should be for the Million Word Challenge for 2021, but we’ve already cut that down to 169k down! That’s a huge improvement! We’re hoping to finish out the month strong and get that number even lower! If we both reach our 100k for July goal, we’ll cut it down to just about 100k deficit. With only a few days left, well… here’s hoping!

It’s also nice to be home. We get to eat Richard’s cooking and sleep in our own bed again!

This week, we’re excited to share that we’re on a writing retreat! Thank goodness because our writing goals have been…not reached as of late. Richard, however, did a big project for his grad program, so that’s a big weight lifted. Our vacation wrapped up and was a lot of fun. We packed in more activities in the three days we were home, and now we’re away again for our retreat. It’ll be great to see those numbers skyrocket. (We hope.) We each hope to write 50k+ this week, so that would put a huge dent in our deficit. Wish us luck!

We also participated in a “Newlywed Game” (I think they had some non-trademarked title to it). We didn’t do quite as well as we’d hoped, but we did win! We squeaked out the win with a tie breaker! There were many questions that we were very close, but just didn’t quite get the point. It was fun, in any case, and we got a ribbon and a bottle of wine to show for it.

For Richard and I, our good news is that we’re enjoying a vacation together! As a new-ish relationship, we haven’t had many opportunities for extended vacations, and this has been our longest and most involved vacation yet. It’s been nice to be kid-free for a whole week (which is the longest that’s been the case, too) and spend some time focused on each other. We are definitely ready for our own bed though! Plus, I’ve gotten to show Richard around some of my favorite places in the world! Here are some pictures of our trip. And remember, let us know what’s good for you!
