This week has been a bit of a doozy on the personal front, and I’m physically and mentally tired. This means it’s probably a very good thing I need to make a thankful list today!
This week, I am thankful:
for my nice warm house
We are supposed to get some super super cold weather in the next few days, and that has made me think about how grateful I am to have a warm house to live in.
for a new hiking trail I found
This one is only about a ten-minute drive from my house, which is quite manageable.
I do appreciate the wooded trails that are right by my house, but sometimes it’s nice to switch things up a little bit.
for a round of good grades
I got A’s in all my classes last semester, so my 4.0 is gonna remain intact going into the nursing program. Chemistry did not take me down! 😉
that we didn’t get sick all semester
Even though all of us were in school, we didn’t get sick even with colds. I feel like this is a serious mercy because we all had classmates who were out with the flu and covid.
Also, I would have hated to have to do makeup work for my science classes. Those are so labor-intensive, once you get behind it’s hard to catch up.
that the semester ends a bit before Christmas
Ok, yes, I am still barely getting all my Christmas stuff done in time, but imagine if the semester ended, like, today or tomorrow! I’d really be behind then.
I have been getting caught up on a lot of stuff now that finals are over. Crazy how productive you can be when you are not in school. 😉
that my mammogram office is so close to my house
They moved in the last year, and now their office is three minutes away from where I currently live. Sweet!
I still hate mammograms, but at least I didn’t have to drive far.
Also, my report was clear, so yay.
And I am thankful that I only have to do these once a year.
that I squeezed in a walk this morning before the rain
It’s gonna be soggy out there the rest of the day, so I’m glad I was able to get a small walk in before the skies started dripping.
that I ran tons of my errands yesterday
It was sunny yesterday, which was perfect weather for making eleventy-twelve stops at stores.
Today would be so much less pleasant for a day of errands.
for blueberry pancakes
Pancakes are good as-is, but man, blueberries really take them to another level.
I use this whole wheat buttermilk pancake recipe, in case you were wondering.
that our cat’s leg seems to be ok
She was limping, so I took her in and the vet thinks it’s just inflammation, definitely not a broken bone. Whew.
Shortly before her appointment, she went and hid under my bed, which she never does. It’s like she knew she was about to go to the vet and I have no idea how she figured that out! I hadn’t even gotten her carrier out.
Thankfully Zoe was able to get her out, and we did make it to the vet on time!
