Thankful today.

20 Oct

Throughout the day, I usually stop to remind myself of what it is that I am thankful for. Of course there are the big ones like “I woke up this morning”, but it is so easy to overlook and take fore granted the little things that we grow so accustomed to. I am going to attempt to make a point to regularly jot down the things that I am thankful for in hopes that I remind myself, and maybe you dear reader, that even the smallest of things are important in making us who we are.

Today, I am thankful for:

Good coffee

Cool crisp Autumn air

Getting kisses from Thomas when I woke up

My “new” car

Conversations with my understanding friend Kat

These really awesome retro chairs

My down comforter

Waking up From Deep Sleep – Handsome Prince = Still Acceptable Aquistion of Sleep

4 Mar

Apparently a deep, long period of sleep is a theme for the old school Princesses of the fairy tale world . Of course as far as Disney goes you’ve got, Aurora, Belle,  and then my favorite (based solely on her red lips and wardrobe) Snow White, after her fateful apple eating experience…at least it turned out good, handsomest prince and all.

Sadly I wasn’t awakened by my prince, but I did get some really good sleep! I have been lacking in that department more so than I thought. I am aware that you can’t *actually* make up for lost sleep, but I certainly feel better. I got off work, went to the gym (toned tummy here I come!!!), showered,  came home crashed, and was asleep by 0830.  I chronically suffer from insomnia, so I was surprised when I woke up at 1600, went to the ladies room, had some H2O, sent well wishes to a friend,  and went right back to bed until almost 2300.

So yay! I thought I’d share my outlandish happiness over pillow time. 🙂

Tomorrow is a JC day for me, but I’m conflicted about how long to stay… I was planning on attending a Post Secret  show, but I’m now contemplating otherwise.  I may just take my book and curl up at Starbucks for a few hours after I run my errands…quite honestly, though, I’m starting to get a little tired of Starbucks. The last few times I’ve been inside, the music has been very blue and the people seemed brooding. I normally get to meet and talk to quite a few people while I’m there. Maybe I’ll see if my bluegrass peeps are having a jam session, and chill there.

Whew there is a lot going on for me in March, and what I hoped to be a “take care of things away from work” month has turned into an “I’m sorry…did you expect to have a life outside of work?” month. Oh well…I still plan to cramming some personal time in.

Alright…I think that’s enough for today.
