OT - Thankful Thursday

Aniki's picture

Welcome to Thursday! This has been.... an interesting week. Why does it seem that when you resolve one issue, multiple issues pop up? It's like trying to cut the head of off a freakin' hydra. Plaaaaaaaah...

Since I've been having a not-so-great week, I'm digging deep. I am thankful for:

  • Working body parts. Some days I have more pain, but...
    • I have a damn good memory (and am good at catching people in lies)
    • my eyes work and I'm blessed to see colors vividly
    • hearing is aces and I often hear conversations people think are private
    • sense of taste is aces (and the pepper in that soup last night overpowered everything)
    • sense of smell is strong (just like the fart squeaked out by the guy 2 cubes away - phew!)
    • arms are strong. shoulders may occasionally be creaky, but they manage
    • legs are fully functional and still perfectly capable of giving a swift arse kick when needed
  • A good car. Wish it wasn't due for a break job, but these things happen.
  • A solid house. Does anyone know how to entice house elves? Cleaning is not my favorite thing.
  • My DH, my family, my friends, and my faith. Lord knows I'd be a lost soul without all of them.
  • Memories. When loved ones are lost to us on this earth, a memory is worth a thousand words.


Hope you're having a good day! xoxo

Hola Aniki!

I am thankful for good health, wonderful family & friends, weekends, learning from mistakes, laughter, a reliable car, sunshine, and Love…..the world would be a different place if we lacked the ability to love.

Always take care of you amiga!

Hola Siempre!

Love, indeed!!! I actually knew someone who loves.... NO ONE. Well, maybe himself. But he has never been in love and doesn't have any love for a single person. Not his mother, not his father, not his brother, not even his wife. I feel sorry for him.

Ten cuidado, amiga!

Si, todo es verdad, Siempre. Sadly, he is one of those who believes that money and sex are everything in life.

I love that you remind us there are things to be grateful for Smile

I'm thankful for:

  • How helpful the skids were yesterday. Anytime I went to do a chore they were right there with me helping out. Or when I went to do dishes they took it form me and did them all between the two of them (shockingly good job too. I only rewashed a few after they were in bed.)
  • Easter coming up
  • Having somewhere to live that's not with the in-laws
  • The progress I'm making in my personal growth and in taking care of myself agian. I'm grateful that I'm starting to be able to put myself first.
  • The gym. 'nuff said.
  • My new Thermogenics getting her Saturday
  • DH's school doing a fundraiser that includes a 5k I get to run.
  • The fact my body works well enough I can do the things I really love to do

That's a great list, PA!

Psssst... I'm going to consider the SDs to be your little house elves! Wink

Now if they'd just do it every day instead of occasionally. I'd be in business Wink

Hope you get a reprieve from your aches and your week is on the upswing.

I'm thankful for many of the things you are, as well, but mostly for a blessed, joyful and toxic-free life, home, family, workplace, friendships, etc.

For the first time in about a decade, I'm truly happy and having healthy relationships with healthy people.

Physically, I'm healthier and stronger than I've been in the last 5 years.

Life isn't perfect but my worst day today is better than my best day in the last 5 years ever was.

Another wonderful list!

FB, I am SO happy for you having that toxic-free everything!!! xoxo

I'm thankful for DH. I've been down..I mean really down. Tired, emotional, etc...I'm not sleeping at all so my patience is very thin, no motivation whatsoever. I'm pretty confident I've been a total bitch. Which has taken its toll on our sex life...

DH came in from work lastnight and a little teasing and flirting led to hitting the sheets early and I'll just say, we BOTH slept very well last night. Sometimes what you need is to just get laid! Seriously Wink

Put a reminder in your phone for once a month, every month that says, "Hey!! In a bad mood? You need to get laid!!"

So many things to be thankful for....this week though..

I will say that I am Thankful for Step Talk.

No joke dh and I thought we were the only ones dealing with the hell we were going thru.

Hoping to pay it forward so not one SM feels she is alone.
