THANKFUL THURSDAY – ALL AT ONCE

In 2 days we will usher in autumn. It hardly seems possible because I know I was just sweating away ten pounds a day with all of the flippin’ heat we’ve had!
And still, it did nothing for my fat ass.
So, with a kiss and a smile or a kick in the pants and a shove down the stairs – most likely the latter. –
I wave goodbye to all things summer 2 days early and with that, I begin my “thankful” list.
#1 – I am thankful that I’ll be able to see again after all of the summer eye bleaching moments I experienced.

Okay, maybe not this exactly but pretty close.
#2 – I’m thankful that the cooler temps of fall will make other people’s deodorant appear as tho it’s actually working.
#3 – I’m thankful that everywhere I go now it will smell like pies and cookies baking!
I am soooo serious about this thankful list.
The number of people wandering around in dental floss when what they really needed was a circus tent was astounding!
It’s like they all got dressed in the dark!
disclaimer: I’m not “fat shaming” I’m just saying. Try putting on a bathing suit that fits.

And the stinky, sweaty, smelling people that seemed to always be in line right in front of me or right behind me??? Ugh. Seriously? Do you have nasal issues?? You can’t smell your own funk??
Sadly, there aren’t enough pumpkin spiced candles or pies to be baked that can get rid of the funk.
I just went over my thankful list and just in case you were wondering if it’s possible to be bitchy and thankful at the same time. It is.

I hope you have much to be thankful for today even if it’s bitchy thanks.
You know I always want to hear about it so drop your thankfuls in the comments below and have an amazing ‘Thankful Thursday!’

THANKFUL THURSDAY

I am thankful for modern medicine.
I, however, still cannot pronounce that word! Tomorrow we will mark week #2 with my sister’s chemo and radiation and so far so GREAT. My sister looks amazing and she really isn’t slowing down much at all. Her blood work always comes back phenomenally well so I am very, very hopeful!

My sister was diagnosed with stage 2 gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer. Current treatment is chemo and radiation with surgery to follow. Fingers, eyes, and toes all crossed that all of those treatments and surgeries do their thing!
daisy lineAI am thankful to be able to care for my sister as she travels this wretched journey. Of course, as all of you know, it’s all about the laughter for me. Keeping it upbeat and always on that positive note!
I don’t know if this is true but it sure helps!
I am thankful for travel mugs because hospital coffee is HIDEOUS!
I think Dan makes the coffee up at the hospital!
I am thankful for my faith in God, His Son, Jesus Christ and our Beloved Mother Mary. For family to pick up the ball of laughter when I have dropped it and for my beautiful, thoughtful, always so unselfish friend, Miranda, whose love and giving knows no depth.
daisy lineAWithout these blessings in my life, I would surely be lost.
I am thankful for all of you out there in the big wide world of all things blogging. Thank you for reading and listening and following along even when I have lost my umph for blogging.
