Thanking away the blues.

I’m having a bad day, so I thought I’d pretend it is Monday — especially since I haven’t celebrated Mondays in awhile… Today I am thankful for:

130. The Honda was fixed — both mechanically and physically for about $300 — we’d assumed at LEAST $1,000 in repair work.

131. Working things out with the Fleur-de-Lys Mansion to have a repeat of our wedding breakfast for our anniversary. They are amazing. If you need a great place to get away in St. Louis, go there.

132. Chat with C about my summer internship. We are both super excited. Can’t wait to be able to tell who “C” actually is!

134. Having a few spare moments to play with my new Kindle.

135. Thinking that maybe, just maybe I’ll be able to go to my sister’s law school graduation tomorrow (SO stinkin’ proud!)

136. Cherry Coke Zero. And no, I really don’t care to hear how these are worse than sugary drinks. I think we can all agree that it is far better than other choices I could be making.

137. A made dinner for me last night. And this isn’t unusual. I *so* win.

138. Folks wanting to read the paper on 1 Timothy 2:8-15 that I wrote for class. It is rather overwhelming.

139. Cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Sometimes you just can’t beat the from-a-can variety

140. Oh, so slowly getting rid of a lot of the things that have accumulated at home.

141. Seeing a random stranger’s engagement photos taken in a room FULL of white balloons. Balloons make everything better.

  1. I love these. Love you. Hope your day gets better!

  2. I so appreciate #136 and #139. Guilty pleasures of mine, too. My doctor has forbade me from aspartame during pregnancy and I gotta be honest… it is really hard. I don’t like regular soda anymore. My kids think from-the-can cinnamon rolls are a huge treat… and I do, too. 😉

    • Glad you agree! I posted somewhere about Cherry Coke Zero yesterday and folks jumped all over me. I don’t drink carbonated beverages often, but sometimes they are needed. And unless there is some other reason (like Stewarts Key Lime soda, or blood sugar crashed when regular coke is needed), I’d rather they be calorie-free. And yeah, I love homemade cinnamon rolls — recently learned from the best. But I love the canned variety. Since they are shorter, it is easier to leave them just gooey enough. Mmmm… The best news: we have ANOTHER CAN at home =0)
