OT - Thankful Thursday

Aniki's picture

Better late than never, eh?

Sorry so late in the day, but I was out yesterday and am have been playing catch-up today. 

I am thankful for:

  • Technology advancements at my job. I don't have to nag people for signatures so often because the system does it for me! Nothing like receiving increasingly "urgent" emails. Next thing needed (IMO): something that locks the person out of EVERYTHING until they sign the damn document! Evil Aniki would do it in a heartbeat...
  • As much as I dislike baby/wedding showers, I have a one-of-a-kind item to give, which makes 'shopping' easy. *dirol*
  • a kind and understanding boss, who is urging me to go home and rest. 
  • as always, my DH. Lord, I love that man!!! <3


One day closer to the weekend!

1. date night tonight

2. A man that cooks my dinner every night before I get home. ( he is a great cook.  Monday night it was taco night, he made the taco meat with chocolate and coffee added. ) YUMMY

3. A mean SIL that dislikes my SO and will not invite him to any family functions in her home.  A blessing in disguise, now I no longer have 21yo, 19yo & 16yo nieces birthday parties (obligation) to attend every year.

Those tacos sound amazing!!! I am now craving tacos. Nom nom nom...

FFS. I have blood relatives AND out-laws (er, in-laws) I don't like, but I still invite them to FAMILY events. How twunty.

She is a control freak, doesn't like his sense of humor, she doesn't have a sense of humor.  She only invites me and my boys now to her family functions.  I no longer will go.  

I was thinking it was weird that she was still giving gift grab kids birthday parties every year when they are now 2 in college and I in high school.

Birthday parties going on for that long are ridiculous. How about a First Pimple Party or Menstrual Madness Paintball Party? Sheesh.

MiL is disordered; not sure what type. She is never allowed to cross my threshold. I have a relative that is a narcissist. Not allowed to cross my threshold, either.

My MIL is a narc and DH is fully aware of it. In almost a decade, she's been to our home 5-6 times.

Hope you feel better Aniki !!

Since we are Thankful for our husbands...I have to toot my horn a little.

I am Thankful my husband makes me coffee ever day--

I am also thankful he plugged in AND warmed up my electric blanket so I didnt freeze in our  semi enclosed  seating area this morning.  Thats where we have coffee before work.

Thankful for my/our kids---they are thoughtful, kind, good kids.  BM's kids--not included in that statement.

Aw, that's so sweet! My hubby would make me coffee, but he makes it too weak for this Finn. LOL!

Thank you, hon. Freaking virus that has yet to run it's long-ass course. Sigh...

I am thankful for a break in the weather, we are finally getting cooler tempratures. Yes yes I know, but we live in the desert, it's always hot here.

I am also thankful today is my Friday and tomorrow I can sleep in for an hour.

Thank you for this. I'm exhausted and tend to focus on the negative. It's been a tough couple of weeks.

So, I am thankful for Aniki today!

For a mechanic husband who has been getting estimates for fixing my bumper for me. After my accident I am finding myself a bit on the tired side.

Accident?! I'm sorry to hear that, CLove. I hope you were checked out by the doctor to make sure all is okay. {{hugs}}

In the mornings - and then afternoon hits and Im toast. I dont feel the need for dr, and dont want painkillers.

Thankful for my job that gives me paid vacation days  -Im taking Friday and Monday off. To heal and rest and sit in sauna.


Hope you are doing well these days!

Yikes, I wasn't thinking painkillers! Maybe some down time and a few hours in a jacuzzi? I'm a Finn and luuuuuuuuuv to go sauna!

Glad you're not seriously hurt. {{hugs}}

I'm doing okay, thank you. Still recovering from a stomach virus. Blech.
