I made a thanksgiving resolution to find something to be thankful for every day until next Thanksgiving. Here’s what I am thankful for this week!
Thursday: Well, we got the report and the lump on my Dad’s arm was, in fact, cancer (basal cell carcinoma), but it’s been completely removed so it’s OK. There’s only a 10% chance of it returning, which isn’t too bad. We’ll take it!
Friday: For a meal with my hubby! He came over during my lunch, which is a late dinner time for him (7:15 PM), and we totally didn’t care that we were eating in a parking lot in his car because at least we were together! <3
Saturday: My work schedule this week is the same as one of my buddies! It’s ever-changing and the last few weeks I’ve been breaking and lunching solo because we all start at different times. So nice to see Erika again!
Sunday: For my husband’s singing lessons. I’ve almost forgotten the time when I used to have to jab him in the ribs every three seconds while we sang at church because he would not only sing off-key, but do it LOUDLY. Like EXTREMELY LOUDLY. LIKE TYPING IN CAPS LOCK LOUD. Now he’s one of our song leaders, and today he was able to lead us in a song (I Am His Child) that, the first time he tried it, was a complete disaster. Shout out to Jennifer Johnson, his fab teacher! God has worked a miracle through you. :)
Monday: That all the effort I put into my baking for the fair this year paid off! I got 11 ribbons, 5 of them blue, which is the best I’ve done so far (this is my third year).
Tuesday: My first error-free edit since I started my probation! We are secretly checked every so often to see if we are keying the mail pieces correctly–sneaking in 25 pieces of old mail into the current. We have to keep our error rate under 2% and with this latest one, two of my old errors dropped off and it dropped down to 1.35% (it was 1.55% before that), which helps me breathe a little easier.
Wednesday: Getting off early enough to join Dennis and Jessie on the nightly walk! I’m starting at 12:15 all this week so I’m home by 9 PM, Jessie’s usual walk time. It is SO nice to be able to have a few hours with Dennis before he goes to sleep. Yay! :)
