Good morning everyone! Today I am thankful for  Thankful Thurs and  for Susan for starting us  off in  such a great way each day!

I am  moving slow today. I have been getting up the  past few mornings and starting right away at 5am. Today I feel myself slowing  down. I so want to be  lazy! DS was suppose to be here this weekend but I hear there is a snag. GF is out of the state for work and the person who was suppose to  dog sit had to  cancel. He could bring the  dog except no way will he and Bob  be able to be left alone when  we need to be gone. Plus  when we're here they just don't get along well. Wish they  did , it would make life easier.  Anyway I told DH he should go see DS this weekend and they could hang out a few days together. I think it would  be good for  both of them. Not sure what's going to happen there yet.

Today I  "plan" to exercise and clean. What will actually happen is  anyone's guess. Last night I was  changing my clothes and felt a big bump on my back. I couldn't see it because of  where it was. Next thing I know I'm pulling a  tick off. It was dead but really  stuck in. So this week I've seen snakes and  ticks. I really want it to  get cold !

Thankful for each of you. Thankful for time to slow down a bit . Thankful for the time to be with Mom. Thankful for the Christmas season and the joy and the hope it brings.

Good Morning,

Welcome back to December weather.  After a few days of it feeling more like April it's time to rebutton up the coat.  Not bone chilling cold but cold enough to remind that it is December.

Overslept this morning and quietly thinking that maybe the awake at 4AM cycle is changing once again.  Hopefully it's gone for at least a little while.

After work rush to get Ricky to the vet this evening.  Time once again for his monthly injection.  They say dogs with this disease can go longer between injections but I'm not sure how you guage it without signs of the dog going into crisis which obviously you don't want to happen.  It was obvious last month but he's not showing any symptoms this month.  Something I need to discuss with the vet.  Hopefully I'll be home quickly.

It's just been a very long work week and having trouble wrapping my head around the fact that it's not Friday yet.'s one day closer.

Thankful that DD and DSIL are all moved in and settling in to their new home.  Thankful for a your same old same old from the doctor.  Thankful for friends, home and family.

Nancy-glad you had such a nice day yesterday.

Margo-how are things in cubeville?

Karen-congrats to your DH on his excellent check up!  I would love a dose of his commitment!

Better get things rolling around here.  Hope you all have a great day!

Good morning.  We have cooled down and it looks like winter is going to appear here in my little neck of the woods.  Not my favorite season but, since I have no control over it, I will smile and just tell myself that it is refreshing!!  <s>

 My day will be a full one.  I want to go to the gym, am having lunch with someone and then dinner here with a different friend and we’re going to a performance of the Messiah at the college.  Busy day but a very fun one!  I need to get my house picked up before lunch so I might have to skip the gym but don’t know yet.  I have not finalized my plans in my brain.  I’m still a bit achy from the personal training session with weights a couple of days ago and I did a long hike yesterday so I probably could skip today.  If I skipped and got some much needed things done here, I know I would  feel more settled so I’m seriously considering that.

Susan, I hope that you have a good work day and a quick ‘in and out’ with Ricky at the vet.  Patty, too bad that DS cannot make it to visit.  You’ve been up early each day and getting a lot of work done.  Karen, your DH is certainly dedicated.  I wish I had more of that determination, also. 

I have a lot of things to be thankful for…. They are the normal things I list…. Health, home, family, friends….. so many things.  This morning I realized that I am really quite happy anymore.  That was such a great revelation to me.  The happiness has just kind of developed and, like someone told me would happen, one morning I realized that I am very happy a lot more than unhappy.  I have a good life here and am very, very thankful for it and for the friends I’ve made here!  I think that life is grand!!!  I am so very, very thankful for that!!!  Have a good day ladies!
