This week, I am thankful:
that I have a signed lease!
I did all the paperwork yesterday, and I should be able to move in in about a week and a half. Whew.
Of course I will share pictures and such once we get settled in. 🙂
that my brother and his wife could come over for my birthday
My brother’s birthday is the day after mine, so we usually do celebrate together, and I’m grateful he could be here this year.
for a free birthday coffee
that my brother found the missing leaf for my table
You know how I’ve been working on this round table:
Well, in his efforts to clean out the flooded basement of the house, my brother found the leaf that goes in the middle of this table (it slides apart to accommodate the leaf).
It’s in pretty bad shape, but I think with my dad’s help (and me using his belt sander!), we might be able to resurrect it.
Stay tuned. 😉
that I only have two more exams after today
The renal system exam is today, then I have an endocrine exam in two weeks, and a cumulative final a few days after that.
I am almost done with anatomy and physiology!
for the sunshine on my birthday yesterday
It was unseasonably cold, but at least it was sunny. I will take that over warm + cloudy every time.
for my new glasses
I picked up the new ones this week and my goodness, the updated prescription is wonderful.
When I walked outside of the eye doctor’s office, I noticed how well I could see things at a distance. So nice!
that I remembered Zoe’s checkup just in time
Somehow, she and I had both forgotten that she had a checkup this week. I rather randomly searched in my email and realized that her appointment was in about 45 minutes. So…we did actually make it, but barely.
Good thing I checked when I did!
that feelings come and go
Of course, I sort of wish happy feelings could stay forever. But when I am having a hard day, I am grateful that unpleasant feelings aren’t permanent.
My current situation is like riding a feelings roller coaster…lots of ups and downs. But at least there are usually ups after the downs. Life is always a mixture!
for a dental appointment today
I hate going to the dentist, but I am grateful for good dental care. And I am grateful that my teeth are not usually too problematic.
