It’s 5am and here I sit in the dark, with one child asleep on the recliner, one in my bed and only one in his actual bed. To be fair his bed is still a crib so he really has no choice, he can’t get out of it. After about five times of mini me’s little feet finding their way to my butt crack I decided enough was enough and got up! At least I wasn’t being used as her human blanket like the night before. That was a rough one. Oh the joys!
My situation hasn’t changed yet. Still waiting on some interviews. Just call me a sitting duck! I recently marked a couple of posts private because I soon realized that if you google me, then you can find my blog eventually and do not want any potential employers to find my whining and rants on the subject. But people don’t do that you say, yeah they do. I have!
Okay so enough about me and on to the Thankfuls… It’s going to be a little harder this week but here goes.
I don’t have many close friend and with my current feelings of isolation I am finding out that my best friend is my only true friend. So for this week I am thankful for a best friend who will call me, ask who she needs to hunt down and would help me hide a body without any questions at all! Metaphorically people! Stay with me, we ain’t killing nobody.
Believe it or not, the one person who is the least touchy feely and dislikes hugging has been thankful for hugs. Hugs actually help. Yep, I want to vomit as I write that but it’s true. Yes I flipped out on a new coworker many years ago who hugged me within minutes of meeting. so this is a hard pill to swallow.
Have you ever read the Star fish story? As I read this story I could not help but feel a calmness over me. The story in a nutshell is a little boy trying to save the starfish washed ashore. AN old man asks why he is doing what he is doing as he cannot save them all! That sweet little boy smiles, picks up a starfish and throws it in the water, then says ” I made a difference to that one!” This symbolizes my career at the moment. I know I made a difference to some, maybe not all, but if my leadership meant something to a small few, then I am a happy person and did what I came to do!
Mini me is feeling much better after surgery! She has eaten us out of house and home the last two days and that is an amazing sight! She will be ready to return to school on Monday and that makes me happy! I have enjoyed all the cuddles and nurturing but now that she is feeling better its’ back to cranky and whiny and I need a break.
Last weekend I took Buddy to the park and it was so much fun to have some one on one time with him! He wasn’t happy when it was time to leave, but it was windy so we didn’t get to stay too long.
Benadryl… Yeah I know that is a weird one, but I have been having trouble sleeping so I am thankful that Benadryl has helped. There was a couple of nights I would have never went to sleep without it.
All of my t.v. shows have returned so what’s not to be thankful about that!
Family and good food! We have had a couple of birthdays this month so there has been a couple of gatherings and it’s always nice to spend time together, laugh, eat good food and take your mind off things!
Recently I have discovered some ne music that I like. Sami Davis and Ed Sheeran. Both amazing voices in different ways. I have rather enjoyed listening to them on Pandora the last few days!
I have said it once and I will say it again! I am Thankful for all of the blogging community for accepting me and lifting me up when I feel down, making me laugh with your stories, and feeling as though you are part of my extended family!
