I haven’t posted a TTOT post in a while. If I’m being honest I haven’t been blogging much either. maybe it’s the stress of the job hunt or plain old burnout but I’m ready to get back in the game.
My English class has proven to be more demanding than I thought an online English class would be, so the fact that I have been off work these two months has helped in that perspective ( Thankful #1)
The tension in my shoulders and neck have proven to be most unbearable so I have started doing some yoga again. I’m only a beginner but it has helped relieve some of the pressure and that will keep me from the chiropractor since I do not have insurance right now it’s not a feasible expense. (Thankful #2)
I have received the official phone call and if all goes well I will be starting my new job in two weeks! EEK I am so nervous, excited and relieved. I plan on making the best use of my last two weeks home. ( Thankful #3)
This time with my kids have been amazing, except when they go to school and I am at home by myself all day. I have been able to listen to them, not feel rushed and just support them in ways I don’t think I allowed time for previously. I am thankful for this time and new perspective ( Thankful #4)
We do not owe as much as we thought on taxes this year so that is amazing! The hubby self contracts so unfortunately taxes are not taken out with each pay check so the unfortunate thing there is we owe every year. We have decided to plan better this year and start saving ahead of time to relieve that burden in the future ( Thankful #5)
We managed to have on sunny day and were able to take the kids to the park with some dear friends. It was so great to see kids just playing and having fun. The sunshine helps too. We have had rain ever since but today should be decent and are planning to go to a local carnival with those same friends. The girls talk about this carnival every year and I am excited that despite financial concerns we are just going to take them. ( Thankful #6)
Tomorrow is the anniversary and will be celebrating eleven years together. We have been through so much in just eleven years but have always made it through to the other side. ( Thankful #7)
I don’t typically watch t.v. in the daytime but decided to watch Meredith yesterday afternoon. She says if you believe you can do something then who cares if one person thinks that you cannot not. prove them wrong. Its’ funny how I have always believed in myself but allowed recent events bring me down. Maybe it’s adulthood and the fact that we stop believing in magic as we get older and by association I think stop believing in ourselves. But watching that, must have been Kismet because it has renewed a fire inside of me that I let blow out a long time ago. I am thankful for my newfound perspective and believe I can do what I set my mind to! ( Thankful #8)
Okay, so that’s like eight thankfuls but that last one is ten wrapped in one so I think we can call it even. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and remember the only person that can make you feel inferior is yourself.
