Thankful Thursday

As I start writing this on Wednesday, I am not oozing gratitude. I have been out of Paxil for two days. A computer glitch this morning was the straw that sent me into tears. I felt angry at Mark for not going to the pharmacy to pick it up when I know that whenever he is out of one of his myriad prescriptions he doesn't hesitate. But I suppose Paxil isn't life or death....

And then I started arguing with my mother on Facebook. Good times.

But like I say, there is always something to be grateful for, and by God, I will find it!

After the long holiday weekend I am thankful for QUIET. The kids went back to school yesterday, but it wasn't until today that I got to be alone. I ended up pretty much taking a "mental health day". That's a thing, right?

Velcro has made it possible for us to put off teaching AJ to tie shoes for nearly 7 years. However,  he needed sturdier, lace-up shoes. We're working on it. I am grateful for patience.

I am thankful for the deliciousness that is my favorite teriyaki and their $5 lunch special!

Regardless of what I said above, I am so very grateful for my sweet husband who, although utterly bewildered by my emotional state, which by the way is exacerbated by being on a birth control pill (I mean, I am putting EXTRA estrogen into  my body!), just gave me hugs.

What are you thankful for this week?

  1. Yes! You are allowed a mental health day! You have a lot on your plate. I'm glad you got a hug from Mark. That chicken teriyaki looks awesome!
