  • @asf0613 - I love that you put DH on there twice. If things are going well in your relationship, it's a game-changer, happy to know you're there!

    1) My family - both my immediate family and my extended. They are what I live for!
    2) My employer - I've been able to get through these crazy times without being financially impacted, which is huge.
    3) My health - while I struggle with unexplained infertility, I am still in overall good health.
    4) My fur babies - all 4 of them!
    5) Our cottage - my sister and I bought our family cottage when my grandpa passed away a couple years ago. We know we are blessed to be able to do this and carry on making more memories at this special place.
    6) My son's school - they have worked hard to make sure that in-person learning is being done as safely as possible.
    7) My friends - I have not seen them much due to the pandemic, but it's nice to know that we still have a strong bond even though we can't spend time together in person.
    8) Virtual meetings - not being able to gather in large groups makes it difficult to communicate efficiently. Virtual meetings have allowed us to maintain that efficiency at work.
    9) Water - okay, this might be weird. But I drink water all day long. Some people might put coffee on here, but I love water so much, especially ice water. It makes my day better. That and any time I get to eat Mexican food.
    10) This community! - having an outlet where you are supported by and are able to offer support to people in similar situations as you is so important.

    1. DH coming up with the weird shit for jokes. It's epic how quick-witted he is
    2. Already feeling like wellbutrin and I are going to be BFFs (ok I took 1 pill yesterday, I shouldn't see that much of a difference, but I feel it deep down that it has)
    3. Our home
    4. Stable jobs
    5. Hot beverages for days like today (thunderstorms!)
    6. Weighted blankets
    7. This doofus who sometimes chills in our (mostly) empty hallway closet
    8. Having a cleaned out garage. It's amazing how much space there is when you remove the lawnmower and consolidate items
    9. Socks
    10. Hugs
