  • I really need to do this today to combat my grumpiness. 

    1. the heating pad currently doing work on my shoulder
    2. getting work done, albeit slowly, so I'm no longer the bottleneck at work
    3. paying off debt
    4. podcasting
    5. my cat, who always sleeps right near me while I work
    6. today's cloudy weather, which matches my mood in a way that feels nice
    7. cancelled meetings
    8. weekend plans (now that we, family, and friends are fully vaccinated)
    9. the security I feel knowing that MH & I have come through harder times than these, so while everything sucks right now, we'll weather this
    10. okay, but really, this heating pad is saving my entire day

    @chgilmore congrats on the job offer & bravo for negotiating it!

  • 1.  An old friend has been sending me her gratitude list lately, it's so nice to be back in touch
    2.  It's actually a beautiful spring day here!
    3.  My mom, she wasn't perfect by any stretch, but I never doubted for a minute that she loved me right up to the moon and back again 
    4.  My dad, he was about the greatest daddy a little girl could have had<div>5.  DH even though he doesn't always help me in the way that I need it, when I need it, I know our bond is solid.
    6.  My little galpal church group started doing group texts finally, so it's easier to stay connected ❤️
    7.  Music</div><div>8.  Podcasts</div><div>9.  Books</div><div>10. Cozy blankets</div>
  • @chgilmore congratulations on the job!  Negotiating is nerve racking but can be so worth it!
    @beakay8 heating pads can make all the difference, I don't currently own one but I'm inspired by your post to investigate
    @BusinessWife I love group texts, they make me laugh... MH has a very active chat with his "boyfriends" (the core group he rides bikes with) and occasionally his phone blows up when there's something exciting happening

  • @jlbaker08 you describing YH's biking buds only makes me imagine a scene of grown men on kid's bikes rolling up to a house on a cul de sac and knocking on your door asking if YH can come and play xD
    (because tone can get lost in an online comment, the above was a joke. I'm so glad they stay in touch and can hang out together! men need friends too!!) :)

  • @chgilmore that is hilarious and I wish it would happen for real... I have a feeling it could be arranged

  • 1. Midol (CD1 joy)
    2. My dog 
    3. DH was at the mall and he bought me a new coffee mug just because. I need zero coffee mugs. But it was a cute gesture.
    4. Hair cut today so I feel a bit less shaggy (growing out a pixie is the worst)
    5. I’m working on a really cool deal at work and I get to geek out a bit (I’m a lawyer doing renewable energy procurement) 
    6. lined up AirBnBs for our road trip this summer
    7. Thinx period panties
    8. my broken pinky toe is feeling better, might be able to get back on the peloton tomorrow 
    9. fun zoom call with friends from church last night
    10. New colorstreet nails to play with tonight

    It makes my heart so happy to see this thread so active!💗

    1) Hope & Faith
    2) God/Goddess/Universe always sending reminders that we do not walk this path alone
    3) Sunny mornings!
    4) Changing weather 
    5) Our good health
    6) This cushy first-world lifestyle—absolutely luxurious when I compare it to many other places 
    7) The TTC medicines that sometimes come for free 
    8) My excellent doctors & nurses
    9) Job flow
    10) A quick visit to our elderly (former) neighbors. They’re vaccinated, so we sat outside on their lanai (still distanced with our masks on) & got to catch up with them after not seeing them since we moved to another town 1.5 years ago. It was such a short but sweet visit💕
    [Deleted User]chgilmore
  • @keikilove it's awesome that you got to visit with your former neighbors!  It's been so nice finally seeing people again after all these months (video conferencing just isn't the same)
