Thankful Thursdays #49: I’m a loser again!

Posted on

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: heat, glorious heat!  I called Moody Heating and Air (our go-to guys, never been disappointed) and they came out and discovered that a clog in our unit was the only problem.  Our total bill, including the $69 diagnostic fee, was just $88! Can’t beat that.

Friday: I passed my probationary period at work! Y’all know I was sweattin’ for a while, thinking I was going to be fired because I clocked in late once by mistake, but I made it! I’m official now!  Woot!

Saturday: What to be thankful for on a day when your sister’s shop gets robbed?  That she wasn’t in it at the time and no one was hurt, thank God!  Speaking of this robbery, if you are in the Wichita area, check out my cupcake fundraiser to help Danielle recover her losses.

Sunday: I had a bad day at work and came to our evening church service feeling bummed and disconsolate.  (Nothing bad happened at work, it was just an emotional day for me.)  Funny how being surrounded by my family in Christ can turn my frown upside down!   AND Thurman was there AGAIN! Yay!  We totally held hands. :) (You can read about Thurman here if you missed last week’s thanksgivings.)

Monday: Happy Halloween!  I was working but wasn’t too bummed about it.  People were dressed up so it felt festive. :)  But what I was thankful for was that my hubby was able to join me for lunch (his dinner time) so we could eat together.  He snapped this photo of my “costume.”  I just attached numbers to the bottom of my striped shirt so I could be a bar code. :)

Tuesday: Diet Rite.  I’d rather not be drinking any soda, whether sugar-laden or sugar-free, but I feel less guilty about Diet Rite since it doesn’t have aspartame in it.  And it’s just SO nice to enjoy a bubbly cola after work while I’m checking my email. Right now, I really <3 Diet Rite.

Wednesday: This week I made 10 dozen cupcakes for the CFC bake sale at work and for the cupcake fundraiser for my sister, and 5 dozen of my favorite cookies, and I didn’t have a single one.  Even better, I didn’t want any!  I really don’t know what is up with that, but I hope it lasts.  My weight loss for the week is 5 pounds.  It’s always easiest the first week, though!  Pray my motivation and willpower have staying power. :)

    • The fundraiser is off to a great start–she’s already got $120 of her money back! My Dad has helped her too, but he really can’t afford to so I’m trying to get all the cash back so I can pay him too. The bar code “costume” was a sister’s idea at church–the first time I wore that shirt she told me I looked like a bar code and I was like, may as well profit from that somehow! haha. Thanks, Suzie!

  4. Yay! I’m so glad that your probationary period is over. I HATE periods in which I feel like I’m under the microscope, trying to prove that I’m good enough–and what a relief when they’re over.
    The cupcakes look so, so good–and it’s so awesome that you weren’t tempted by them! I’ll definitely pray for your willpower to stick around. =)

  5. Forgot you were in Wichita. I have a family connection with Moody’s. I’m sure they appreciated the shout out!
    You have a great deal to be thankful for—especially those cupcakes (and will power!)

    want the choco cupcakes! gosh they look so perfect, you are an artist!
    funny, week one too of my new attempt to stay on a diet. but I could not resist to try my sourdough chocolate pancakes with chocolate sauce (will post on them as soon as I manage to make them look good, first time ever I make pancakes and they were far from roundly shaped as they should) at yesterday’s brunch. still went down almost 1/2 kg yesterday. this diet rocks.
