I was hoping to keep my Grateful posts going as we move through this new adventure. I was also hoping to keep them on Sundays, but what’s 24 hours between friends? Or between myself, since I think any regular readers have fled to something interesting, like toilet cleaning.
Some things for which I’m grateful this week:
- My lightbox. I’ve been using it regularly for 30-60 minutes a day first thing in the morning and I realized this weekend that it truly is making a big difference in my sleep and in my mood. Hey! Look at me! It’s nearly mid-winter and I’m not yearning to waste the day hiding under the covers!
- Went to a fantastic Christmas party yesterday with the church staff. Someone brought Godiva chocolate vodka. Everyone brought delicious food. And we all had a good time together.
- The painting is done and almost all the downstairs is put back together. While I’m not really happy with the big-ass dresser in my living room (G has some issues getting rid of “good” furniture–even when it simply doesn’t fit the house; space or style) at least we have decluttered a lot of what was in the drawers and on the shelves. Three large boxes of household stuff to Goodwill and at least two boxes of trash. I mean, how many sets of disposable chopsticks do we really need? I voted for zero.
- G and friends who are really supportive and over-the-moon happy for my career move.
- Offers of contract work.
