Thankful November #3

Or alternatively titled, "Appointment Week".

A couple of weeks ago I said I was grateful for not having a very busy week.

This week WAS busy. We had appointments for some such or other every single day. I ultimately decided to push out the kids' dental appointments that I had scheduled for Friday.

The Appointments

1. On Monday Mark went to his podiatrist to get his spiffy new AFOs (Ankle Foot Orthotics) for his foot drop issue. He is very happy with them, so I am thankful for that.

2. Tuesday was all about the girl. She finally had her 13 year old check up (nevermind that her birthday is in July), got a flu shot and had an eye exam. She picked out cute little black frames for her new eyeglass prescription. Oh, and my daughter is just 4 inches shorter than me and her feet are now bigger than mine! Grateful she's so healthy, but she can stop growing anytime now. Or at least her feet can!

3. Wednesday was my day to see my therapist. I am so very grateful that I have one....and that he noticed (and said something) that I've lost some weight!

4. Feeling lighter after I unloaded my inner crap, I decided to walk a 5K! It wasn't actually all whimsy-like. I volunteered to participate in "The Dynamic Duel USA vs. Canada Virtual 5K" in support of Greta and Laura as they raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I was grateful for a reason to push myself, and proud that I did it.

5. We all got up early Thursday morning for a meeting with Camryn's teachers, principal and counselor before school started. I'm trying to be grateful for this, but it was honestly kind of difficult for various reasons that I don't want to go into now.

Other Things

6. Thankful for a good sale and coupon that let me get the yarn I needed!

7. Grateful for the birthday gifts that were given to Mark. It makes me happy when he feels special.

8. One of his gifts was movie tickets, so we all got to see Thor: The Dark World last night!

9. I am grateful to have taken care of several personal/family administrative tasks, such as switching my kids' health insurance because their doctor's office isn't accepting their currant insurer as of the first of the year and I want them to be able to see the same doctors. By the way, along these lines, I am very excited to be bringing you guys a post chock full of info about Health Care Reform changes. Look for it in the next couple days!

10. Last, but not least, I am very thankful to my friend Jess for custom knitted fingerless gloves!
