so yeah....

Last year's grateful post each day was hard to maintain. I tried. I am grateful for each and every day I'm in alive. I know I need to treat my body better though. I'm not going to make promises I won't keep. This year is about being okay with not being okay. 

Day 309-327

 Holy moly, I'm not doing well with this post per day.   I'm off for the rest of the week for Thanksgiving Break.  This time of year is always a little bitter-sweet as I miss my family, both the dead and the living who have abandoned what it means to be family. Jerry and I will cook for us and that's always a great time.  We enjoy cooking together and we've gotten quite good at it, in my opinion.  The menu is: Turkey, dressing, roasted potatoes, carrots, and beans, hopefully, cranberry from Publix if I put in the order and actually get it, and a mini Klondike bar for dessert.   My mouth is drooling as I type this.  So what am I grateful for....Breaks from school, Jerry, Nutmeg, the means to have a nice dinner, we are so fortunate and I know that not everyone is...sometimes I feel guilty...argh...

Day 308

Yesterday was rough. Feeling so much better. Today I'm going to the district building for contract negotiations. I haven't been the best building two for the union. My heart isn't in it. I guess every little bit helps. I'm grateful for feeling better. I was a little scared. I never felt that way before. Jittery, confused, emotional... Not fun. Drink your water! 

Day 298-307

Got my Pixelmas Pixel 6 Pro phone today. It's huge. That's what she said.  I hope a Jerry gets his tomorrow. I had to take the day off as I'm having problems staying hydrated.   

Day 281-297

I'm thinking this has become a lost cause. I am truly grateful for so much. I'm very fortunate. Apparently, I need set aside time to reflect each day.  

Day 276-280

 I'm grateful for Jerry.  He takes care of me.  It's the little things like making sure my lunch box is clean, and my lunch bag is in the freezer.  

Day 275

I'm a little stiff from last night's fall but over all doing great. I'm thankful that I had the smarts to "roll" in to the fall. Getting old is a doozie! I want to keep getting older though even at times when I say I just want to sleep forever. FOMO (Fear of missing out) plays a big part. I want to do more. Especially with Jerry. 🥰
