Friday was a whirlwind of productivity and yet fun and enjoyable at the same time. I didn’t realize I needed to write my post until like six pm and decided my brain would do better if I waited until Saturday morning.
So let’s review what happened this week.
Wow Monday was a really long time ago. What in the heck did I do? Oh, I remember now. I tried to do my cleaning job but that was not going very well for multiple reasons. It wasn’t just me. I came home and actually got some rest and then got some cleaning done. The babysitting job I had lined up cancelled but actually that is okay because I really needed to concentrate on me and the house. We ended up having to ask for help for groceries and it was responded to with so much love and caring.
Thankful that my friends know when I am not really up to a task and let me bow out gracefully.
Thankful we have such a wonderful church family at the Unitarian Universalist church.
I went back and finished my cleaning job. I came home and finished some of the cleaning and got some writing done. The husband and the kid have suspected we had rodents in our walls in this one area. I decided to sit near it while I wrote, what we have is a cat. A cat who likes to sit on the curio cabinet and scratch her claws on the wall and the top of the light fixture that is in the curio cabinet. As I was cleaning a friend texted saying she made way too much curry lentil soup and would we please take some. We accepted but only if she joined us to enjoy it.
Thankful for friends who seem to have the most perfect timing and delicious food.
Thankful we don’t have rodents in our walls
On Wednesday I escaped. A friend and I were up to shenanigans and we went to the beach for a couple hours. We had great conversations and enjoyed some frozen blackberries and watermelon after swimming. It also seemed like all the beach wildlife was out in full force just for me. My birthday is just a day away now(on Sunday). We saw so many different fish and some crabs too.
Thankful for friends who are up for early morning shenanigans.
Oh Thursday! I chaperoned a field trip to the Florida Aquarium.Such a long day and so many many many stairs. My knees, hips and ankles were not so happy about that. HOWEVER, we had a great time.
Thankful that I have made so much progress physically that I was able to enjoy the day with the kids.
Friday was allllllllllllll the grocery shopping, food prepping and cooking and freezing too. Not only did I help a friend with this. I did some for myself as well. I also ended up grocery shopping for me later that day too. I am fairly certain my chai and kombucha lied to me about how productive I could be and then conspired with a cola and a mountain dew to get me through the rest of the day. We had a lovely dinner out with just my husband and the kid as well.
Thankful for friends who let me help them get back on the healthy tract eating.
Thankful for a great dinner with the family.
Thankful for caffeine even if it does lie.
I think that is ten things. If I miscounted, I am sure there is enough in here to qualify for ten things. Oh WAIT.
I DO HAVE ANOTHER THANKFUL!
Friday while out and about, I got an email saying that a nonprofit blog would like me to tweak my Classism post and send it to them and they would pay for it as well!!!!! I can’t believe I forgot to put that as Number one because really it quite blew me away.
