New here? Thankful Thursday is something we’ve been doing in these COVID times; an exercise to help us hunt for the good that is in our lives and in the world, even in the midst of a pandemic.
I am thankful
that Sonia does not appear to have EDS
(EDS= Ehlers Danlos Sydrome)
She’s got a few of the symptoms, so her pediatrician referred her to a geneticist. We had a telehealth appointment, and it looks like Sonia just has some hypermobility, not EDS.
So, that’s good news. We’re supposed to follow up with the geneticist in two years, just in case something changes, but for now we are good to go.
that Lisey is all set for the start of college
She’s all transferred over to a four year university now (online, of course!). It was a lot more steps than we’d anticipated, but she got ’em all done and now she’s one step closer to her degree.
for a break in the heat
July was awfully hot (so many days in the mid 90s) but the forecast for the rest of August looks like a lot of 80s instead of 90s.
I know it’s still going to be humid, but I’ll take the lower temperatures, at least!
for the internet
I’ve been thinking again about how terribly much harder things would be right now without it. I know life isn’t close to being normal, but the internet has made so many things possible while we follow social distancing guidelines.
that COVID stats are holding fairly steady here
We have a good testing positivity rate and there are so many fewer ICU patients and deaths as compared to springtime. Hopefully that’ll continue to be the case.
for some good Stitch Fix purchases
Lisey helped me pick out some things from the Shop Your Look section and hey, I’m keeping a bunch of what we chose! I think I am actually going to use up my credit this way.
I promise I will show you what I got; I just need to photograph it all.
that my eBay listings are consistently selling
I sold one for $33, and another one is almost at $20 with one day left on bidding.
So, two more books are leaving my house this week!
Clutter out, money in. Yes, yes, yes.
I’ve sat here for a while trying to think of anything else to add to my list, but I think it’s just going to have to be kind of a short one for me.
Which maybe is because I am writing this post before I’ve had breakfast. My brain is not functioning at 100%.
So, I’m going to go eat breakfast and turn it over to you.
