Good things 2016: Week #4


“Aunt Court. I’m working on this stick.
How dare you interrupt for the silly ball?”
– #brodsmontana

It’s important to remember the things that are good in life. It reminds me how blessed I really am and also helps to ease the sting of the bad. I’m incredibly lucky, there’s more good than bad (Knockonwood!) and I want to document how thankful I am for it.

I don’t wish to jinx it, but I think my mood is leveling off a little. It seems an initial adjustment can be needed when starting thyroid meds. (Also not to jinx it, it’s helping my my energy levels and weight coming down with less of a fight.)

Also we’re all the way through January and I still don’t know what I’d like for this year. I’m also not beating myself up about it yet. That’s progress.

Good Things

  • Great responses to writing I’ve done lately for work and for others.
  • Daddy-O’s lasagna from the freezer and GF garlic bread
  • Baking for a cause and hearing how fast they went!
  • Blood oranges
  • Semi-fleixble work schedule when it’s really necessary
  • Seeing how excited Brodsmontana was to see my brother.
  • Lazy chicken noodle soup and pawning some of the left overs off on my brother
  • Being able to make most of the swim parents happy this week
  • Paying $0.24 for a full tank of gas. Remember when it was exciting to pay $24 for the whole tank again? Thanks to local grocery store, it was less than a quarter this time.
  • The sequel to Dorthy Must Die, The Wicked Will Rise. (I have another review publishing this week and next but I’ll do this one soon.)

    I forgot how much I LOVE that song. Sadly there’s no good instrumental version to use at my wedding. I am reading The Japanese Lover by Isabelle Allende and loving it.
