Thankful November - Day 14

Today, I'm thankful for my gym and the wonderful women there.

In the last seven months, it has become the place that I feel most "normal" as I struggle through unemployment and the alone-ness that brings with it.  I have spent a lot of time there - and not necessarily working out.  The fabulous owners have allowed me to work the front desk, where I can practice my "be nice to people" skills; they have allowed me to work on special projects with them and for the betterment of the gym; they even let me come in and just sit and cry when I need a shoulder.

Thank you, Every Woman Health Club, for allowing me to be me during this crazy time in my life.

Until Next Time,

Thankful November - Day 13

Today, I'm thankful for my car!

It's reliable.  It's cute.  It's comfortable.  It gets pretty good gas mileage.  And most of all, it's all mine!

I'm particularly thankful each month when I pay bills that I was able to pay off the loan two years ago and it's one less bill that I have to contend with while I'm out of work.  That little victory makes me more thankful!

And besides,  Maxy loves to go for rides in it....

Until Next Time,

Thankful November - Day 12

Today, I'm thankful for my wonderfu eye doctor and his staff.  I knew my vision was getting worse (it happens when you get older, right?), and they spent lots of time testing and retesting me to make sure the new prescription for glasses and contact lenses was correct before ordering.  And, he ran several tests on my eyes to make sure there wasn't something sinister happening somewhere else in my body making my vision diminish.

I picked up my new "edgy" glasses this morning and wow, can I see well!!!

Until next time,

Thankful November - Day 11

Today, I'm thankful that my beloved Saints beat the Atlanta Falcons, otherwise known as the 'Dirty Birds.'

The victory is especially sweet because 'dem birds were undefeated coming into our house.  Drew Brees and company showed them some New Orleans hospitality, all right.


And Who Dat!!!

Until Next Time,

Thankful November - Day 10

Today, instead of trying to be original, I'm posting a link to my 10th day of thankfulness post from last year.  I'm thankful for the same thing each November 10, so why not be unoriginal and repetitive?

Enjoy... and Semper Fi.

Until Next Time,

Thankful November - Day 9

I'm thankful that it's Friday.

Not that I've had anything stressful or important going on the rest of this week.  But, I'm trying to get myself into a working state of mind again, and I was always happiest on Friday when I was working. 

So, for all my working friends out there, Happy Friday!

Until Next Time,

Thankful November - Day 8

Today, no deep thoughts on what I'm thankful for.  Let's just say I'm thankful to be breathing, alive and here on Earth.

Until Next Time,

Thankful November - Day 7

Today, as goofy as it sounds, I'm thankful for my cable tv.

Since I've spent the better part of the last seven months at home, I spend a lot of time on the couch with Maxy and we watch tv a lot.  Movies.  Daytime talk shows.  Reruns of night time soap operas.  And did I mention the DVR?  That thing gets a workout!

I hate paying that bill every month, but have a new appreciation for the service.  And I need to go back to work SOON!

Until Next Time,

Thankful November - Day 6

Today, I am thankful to live in a country that's free, where I can disagree with my friends and family about politics, religion, morality and if the sun is shining.  At the end of the day, we all go our separate ways and when tomorrow comes around, we're all still friends and family.

And I'm thankful that we can all go to the polls freely and make a choice that is our own.  God Bless America!

Until Next Time,

Thankful November - Day 5

Today, I'm thankful for the gardener who comes every Monday and takes care of the yard!

He's quick, efficient, and does a great job.  The lawn in front and on the side of the house look really good all year long. If I need help with other plants or flowers or anything else in the yard, all I have to do is ask and he schedules a time to get it done for me.

I'm just glad I don't have to take care of any of the yard work - I'm defnitely not a yard work kind of girl!

Until Next Time,
