For that reason, I thought I'd take a different twist and mention some of the "little things" that I am thankful for this week because yes, sometimes it is the "little things" that make us smile or just make our day!
Thing 1: This one isn't just THIS week, but has been ongoing. I am extremely grateful for the gorgeous weather we are having. Yes, it rained that one weekend, but other than that, the skies are blue and the sun is shining! I have been able to wear my skirts and dresses every day since school started. In fact, there has only been two days were I even needed a jacket in the morning. I figured i'd mention this now because as we enter the middle of October I suspect the chilly weather is going to show up. Although I am loving this weather, i am kind of bummed that I am not out there running in it while it's still nice!
Thing 2: I am Thankful to Judy from Chocolate Runs Judy for suggesting Arnicare bruise cream. I was able to find it at my local CVS and have been applying it since Monday. It's always hard to tell if that "something"you apply is actually working or if it's just "time" that is doing the healing. Either way, the purple color seems to be dissipating and it didn't hurt AS much when I did a jog around town on Wednesday ( even though I shouldn't have).
|I highly recommend Halo!|
Thing 3: This seemed to be the week that people were getting sick. People at work and even in my own household were all coming down with something. I thought for sure I was next. I had the sinus pressure, the sniffling nose, and the sneezing. I nipped that in the bud right away by taking Alka-Seltzer Cold and by constantly spraying HALO down my throat. I HATE missing work. I think teaching might be the one job where it takes more work and planning to miss a day than it does to actually show up!
Thing 4: If you are a teacher you will know why I am thankful for this next thing. I got a new student yesterday and his last name is at the end of the alphabet. How convenient that alphabetically he is now the last one on my list. This means that I can write his name in my grade book without disrupting the sequence of the class. Like I said, it's the little things! Now if his last name began with an "M", that would have just stressed me out...haha.
Thing 5: EVERY weekend since school started I have been busy with plans. It's either been birthday parties, anniversary parties, races, traveling, or something. This weekend i am thankful for NO plans. I just want to veg out with Baylee (who seems to be getting over her bronchitis by the way). Maybe I'll do a little more decorating for fall around my house.
Have a good weekend all! -M
