Thankful Thursday

I was not feeling thankful today. Some days are like that.

I am feeling stressed out.

I won't bore you with the details.

I managed to think of some things to be thankful for because they are there. I just have to look for them.

I am thankful that our dog seems to be warming up to the new pet sitter we hired. We are going on vacation in 4 weeks(I hope), and I am having the pet sitter come over twice a week so that our vicious chihuahua/dachshund mix won't eat her. (I am not kidding.) Gizmo seems to feel very comfortable around her and it has only been her third visit. In another week we'll try having her come over when we aren't home and see how it goes.
I know you are thinking "How could this cute little doggie be vicious?" Well around strangers she can be. She bit our last pet sitter(thus the need for a new one). Trust me. She only looks innocent.

I am thankful for sleep. After several nights without any(and I mean ANY), I am so exhausted that I know I will get a good night's tonight. Plus my doctor called in a new prescription sleep aid for me and I am going to use it tonight. Tonight I will sleep. I am looking forward to it.

I am thankful for the pool at our apartment complex. And the fact that no one uses it during the week. No one! I sat by the pool yesterday and read a book, soaked up some sun and even got a good workout in.

See? Not a soul in sight!

I am thankful for the weight I have lost and how much better I feel since I started exercising 5 days a week. Some day I will talk more in depth about this but every time I come here to do it I find that I'm not ready. I don't know why.

I am thankful for Chinese Chicken Salad. We had it for dinner tonight and it was Yum-ee!(and healthy)

What are you thankful for?
