Sometimes, when you aren’t feeling the gratitude, trying to write about it just does not work at all. Yesterday was one of those days and, hence, the missing entry. I spent a lot of time focusing on all the stuff that just didn’t make me feel good. Law of attraction is good like that. Get some negative momentum built up and, viola, here’s some more of it.
Today was a bit better, but not even remotely where I would want it to be. Having said that, I did have some things to be grateful for.
It was an absolutely beautiful day out. The sky was cloudless and the prettiest color of blue. Hard to believe that I actually heard frogs singing from the lake. I thought it was a little early for that, but guess they know spring is coming.
I am so grateful that the school made quick work of the assembly this evening. We were able to get out of there without the huge traffic jam because we left as soon as all the microphone stuff was over. Over 800 people there and hundreds of cars. I am so grateful we got out of there when we did!
Tomorrow will be an even better day.

The end of the day is near. Tiredness is taking over as I sit in a parking lot waiting on my daughter’s dance class to finish. I had the best intentions to do my gratitudes through out the day, but it just didn’t turn out that way.
So here I sit tapping away on my phone, as the unsecured wireless gods aren’t smiling on me this evening.
Things I am grateful for today:
- Happy kids
- Sunny drive home on flower lined street.
- Warmish weather that lets me sit on the car without freezing my butt off.
- A busy day at the office.
- My nice cozy bed awaiting me.
- A cell phone that has internet access and great apps
- The Blend playing on the car radio. They are playing the best music tonight.
- The 1/2 hour I get to read in peace after I post this entry.
And with that, until tomorrow!
I am oh so grateful that our vet has a special deal where you can bring your dogs in for a wash and dry with nail clipping and ear cleaning for under $35 a dog. Lulu and Sophie are almost 70 pounds a piece so wrangling them into a bath tub just isn’t feasible. I can remember when they last had a bath but I have been smelling them from across the room for a while now. No puppy cuddling going on because they were just too smelly.
We dropped them off at the vet this morning and I spent the morning washing all their bedding. No use getting them all clean if they are just going to come home and roll all over their stinky stuff.
They are now home all shiny and nice smelling. I sure hope that it stays that way for a while.

Today I am grateful for the natural cycle of emotions. Not sure what was up for the last couple of days, but today I am feeling SOO much better and happier all around.
Along with happier, I was eager to get my steps in today. My goal was 10,000 in a day and so far I am up to 11,500. I am grateful for my large house that allowed me to rack up the steps as I marched circles around it I am also grateful that my FitBit tracks my time on the elliptical as steps as well. All these steps were racked up all indoors – so happy for that as it was a bit to nippy to do my normal outdoor walking.
