Today I'm grateful for:
balance. I've been very open about my issues so there's no need to go over them again. I just wanted to take a moment to give myself a pat on the back. Considering a solid week of lurgy, sleepless nights, guilt over my husbands sleepless nights and an insane hamster who desperately needs a walk, the fact that I've been balanced this week is a testament to the hard work and dedication I've put in over the last 3 years. (OK, it's really just the luck of the draw with bi-polar but hey, cut a girl some slack)
my husband. He has still not suffocated me in my limited sleep. He rocks, because honestly, I can't say I'd be as forgiving.
an old knotted sock. This has given Roy (and I) hours of cheap entertainment. With me being sick and unable to take him on his daily walks, he would be insane (OK, MORE insane) without this outlet. Enjoy the video but please take note at the amount of store bought toys that go unnoticed.
not being fired. Seriously, I would have fired me or at least demanded video documentation of my funeral.
not going stir-crazy. I'm not a good "Stay at home" kinda gal. I LOVE my job. After all, I am a superhero. It's a calling don't-cha know. But, thanks to a little dog, a new treadmill, Esther and my little 365 I've managed to keep entertained.
God. I can now say, with relative certainty, he has decided to let me live.
a quiet Pixie. I infected her with my lurgy and she is now home with me. She tends to run along the dramatic side but thus far she has stayed in her bed watching Cartoon Network. I hope she heals faster than I have. A week in bed will make her head explode.
panty shields. The way I've been coughing? Nuff said
not overdosing on cough syrup. I have killed more than one bottle this week yet I still cough. WTH?
prayers. Saying my prayers grounds me. Others praying for me comforts me. I am indeed new to this God Freak stuff but I like it thus far. Even if I don't always get it. That's faith right?
rain. It balances out the sun. Without it life would cease, paradise would dry up and blow away. It restores balance, it heals and it quenches the Earth's thirst. It's also pretty fun to play in. Um, when you're not sick of course *looks shifty* What?
