Day 341


Day 341 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Friday, June 9th, 2017.

I lost track of time. One minute it was almost 10pm, and the next is now! Just after 1 in the AM.

I took my puppy to the vet today. He has a really bad cold, and the doctor said he needs to be on antibiotics.

I would do anything for all my babies. Skin and fur babies!

I am grateful I don't have to work tomorrow because that would suck with me being up this late! LOL

Everything is going well. I have faith. As long as that hamster keeps spinning that wheel inside my head, I should be OK! :)

Day 340


Day 340 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Thursday, June 8th, 2017.

It's almost midnight and I'm still awake because there is no rest for the wicked.

The fluid in my lungs are still pretty bad. Nothing I can't handle. I'm used to living like this. You have to be.

I had to work 12-8 today. So I'm a bit wound up. Today is also Andy's birthday, and I bought a dozen donuts from DD for him.

IDK! I'm not really good at gifts. When I see something someone likes, I usually just get it for someone whether it's their b'day or not. It might not even be a holiday at all.

In any case, no one likes the gifts I buy. I put all my heart and soul into finding a perfect gift, but they never like it. Don't believe me? Just ask my family!

Oh right! Positive stuff.

Well why is it that when I post positive things, people want to tear me down? And when I'm down, they want to build me up? Why? I thought they wanted me down to begin with.

I really, really love my dogs! They bring me so much joy and laughter!

I wish I could go back to the days when I had such a wide eyed view on the world!

I'm grateful tomorrow is literally my Friday!

Day 339


Day 339 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Petty, jealous people
All live under the steeple

Listen upon dramatic whims
Picking me apart by the limbs

Like a heart attack
*There's no looking back

*Trying to find the serendipity
When all I see are faces of pity

*Country roads
Personality explodes

*Struggling to reach the house
Only to find the petty mouse

*There's no looking back, is a line from the song, "Happy Now?" By No Doubt

I thought I would get over to my computer to highlight, but I've been sick and lazy. The asterisks are my highlights. I have no guesses this week. Perhaps next week! *fingers crossed*

Day 338


Day 338 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017.

I'm grateful for good people at work. That's what I need to focus on. My boss let me go home early to take care of my cold.

I am starting to feel better. I'd like to thank Mucinex for my speedy recovery! Also, I'd like to thank Tylenol, for helping me reduce my fevers (and they're not for cow bells!)

I think that's all I've got for now.

I'm grateful for my friends, little pups, son, and husband.

Day 337


Day 337 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Monday, June 5th, 2017.

I'm grateful I had the day off. Hopefully nursing my cold will be over with by the time I get into work tomorrow--I hope!

I had some time as well to think about my haters, and realized I didn't say anything about them. They assume because that's what haters do!

Either way, I'm younger than they are (isn't that sad?), and I know better than to assume.

I'm grateful for that!

Day 336


Day 336 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

With 29 days left of this challenge, I find myself challenged today.

My cold got worse. And I felt like no one was helping me. And then my day grew worse. After the changing of the guard, the trouble makers I work with, I learned--are trying to get me fired. Joke is on them if they think I plan on staying there much longer!

Had they listened to me before--which clearly they have not--they would know I'm working my way trying to find another job. I need something with more pay. It really is true the more you make, the more you spend!

Well, I will never allow myself in that predicament ever again. So here's what I'm grateful for:

I'm grateful I am able to stand up to bullies! And I'm grateful for karma as I have seen it work!
