I made a thanksgiving resolution to find something to be thankful for every day until next Thanksgiving. Here’s what I’m thankful for this week!
Wednesday: mechanical pencils. I use them exclusively, except when I’m writing checks and signing cards. I believe in the power of erasing (I make lots of mistakes), and the power of not needing a pencil sharpener.
Thursday: That my husband got his old position back where he sits at a desk that has a direct phone number so I can call him whenever I want just to say “hi.” I don’t know if he’s thankful to have me bothering him every chance I get, but I adore it. I think it actually lowers my blood pressure to hear him answer, “Quality, this is Dennis.” *sigh*
Friday: to Bill Clinton for establishing the family medical leave act, which allows me to call into work when I can’t make it in or need to come in late due to diabetes complications (usually low blood sugar) without fear of reprisal. With the way the REC operates (you can potentially lose your job just for skipping a break or taking breaks one minute late or early), I bet I’d have been fired by now if I wasn’t protected by it.
Saturday: Although I would prefer to be thankful to be the proud winner of the weight loss competition with my co-workers (I wasn’t), instead I had to find something else and it wasn’t hard to do since I had a bunch of friends over that I haven’t seen in a while. And I really am happy for Erika, who lost 18 pounds and 12 inches to win the competition! She earned that money!
Sunday: That my house is clean. Wow. This is amazing.
Monday: No work! I got to DGT again. :)
Tuesday: My house is still clean. This is a miracle.
Side note: I know I missed my last weigh-in (or two) but I will update what is going on in the weight loss (or gain) department soon. It isn’t pretty but I’m not a lost cause. No matter how bad it gets, it’s never too late to turn around and make some changes! I am headed to Texas on Saturday for four days to visit friends (so excited!), so I will be back next week to fill y’all in. XOXO
