OT - Thankful Thursday

Aniki's picture

There are times I am reminded to be thankful for ATYPICAL things. I am thankful for:

  • Waking up today and being happy about it. There are dark days when I am NOT and that's scary.
  • Bad (ex) friends who have taught me what kind of friend I do NOT want to be.
  • Snarky, insensitive poopie heads. I'm far from perfect, but strive to be a good person and be, at the very least, polite to all. Yes, I sometimes fail. That's when I put on my big girl panties and apologize for being an a$$.
  • People who give CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. It's not always easy to see where you're going wrong, but it makes a YUGE difference when someone points it out in a HELPFUL way; not a shi!tty one.
  • People who are pessimistic and narrowminded and go through life constantly harping on the negative side of things, I suffer from depression and will avoid you like the plague.

Yay! I'm so glad you're having a good day Aniki!!!

I'm thankful for:

  • Being shockingly calm and not in panic mode
  • People that want the girls safe too
  • The fact I see my little bro in under a week! (I'm not allowed to pick favorite siblings... But if I could...)
  • All the amazing people on here that are helping keep me sane through everything and provide some amazing insight and give me reality checks
  • The fact I know how to track IP addresses... Now if DH would just consent... He thinks that's "stooping to her level" I think it's "leveling the playing field:
  • Such an amazing and compassionate DH. He even throws chocolate at me during that time of the month
  • The fact that Shark Week is only10 days away!!! Woohooo!!!

I'm thankful that I finally dropped back down to the weight I was before my DH came home for a 4 day vacation.. dang his mother's chicken salad and mexican meal out!

I'm thankful my husband is having a better time at work this week than the last few.  He fishes for a living and the weather and fish have been not great the last few weeks.  This week has been good so far though.

I'm thankful my inlaws will take my dog any time I need them to.  I'm going on business next week and they let us leave him with them last weekend when we went to visit.  I won't have to get him until the end of the month.  Love my dog...but no one near me to watch him and I prefer him to get spoiled with granny lol.

I'm happy Aniki is happy to be happy.

Aw, thank you, ESMOD!! Kiss 2

Another successful weight goal - cool!! I need someone to follow me around and slap the bad food out of my hand, and another someone to zap me with a cattle prod to get me off of my chronically tired arse.

This is my plan today Aniki.

I am getting home early. Have some great red wine, cheese, crackers, summer sausage waiting. I am going to go outside in the yard and enjoy the sky, music and flowers  while relaxing with my wine treats. And I am so thankful for this day.

Queen, that's a lovely plan!! I'll be with you in spirit, so if your wine disappears a little faster, you'll know why!! Wink
