chester1955Thursday pre-Easter gratitudes:

Today I am grateful for:
  • A great 20/20/20 at the gym. 20 mins run, 20 mins Stairmaster and 20 min bike. Feeling fantastic!
  • A fun game of Fast and Furious with Douglas. He loves playing fetch the ball.
  • Sales! I desperately need new winter clothes. I have gone from a size 20+ to a size 12 over the past year and this winter I literally have NO winter clothes that fit. I got a really nice long sleeved top to start off the winter wardrobe at 20% off. Thank you thank you.
  • A parking place at the train station. Every day I ask and every day the Universe provides. Thank you thank you.
  • Looking forward to the long break over Easter. I have plans to garden, read, study, go out for dinner with friends, study, relax, study and generally get a few things in order. Yaaaay :-) 8 hours ago

1. Food. I got to my Russian class at 9:30 and went through two more things in the same room, leaving at 3pm. This class…we’re more family than class..there’s cheesy facebook updates and what not. I started eating when I got there and stopped when I left. It was so great. I love food and my Russian friends haha.

2. I ran into a girl from high school. Which is a weird feeling. I almost had the same “high school” feeling I did, which was, wow I’m a nerd nobody likes me, but it was nice talking to her for a minute. It just shows how much life has changed for the better! (and how much high school sucks!)

3. I’m at home. With wine. And ice cream. In pjs that have flamingo’s with hats and scarves. This is a dream.

4. I am no longer in a rush to get any work done.

5. But it’s all over in ten days and I can’t wait! 8 hours ago

~ Always Free to Choose ~3rd day

1. friends notes. God did that in time.
2. my bf’s prayers all day long and love.
3. that the jerk doctor wasn’t as bad as he has been.
4. that i got to go somewhere i hadn’t been in years. by myself. and i looked good. :)
5. that i tried to not stress the rest of the day after allll i’d been through.

still beat. still have a pain on and off from the trauma of earlier this week. that is not good and a new low to have happened from the emotional crap of stress i’ve been trying to break free from since for so long. why does it have to be in layers? i don’t know. it’s like a chain that you break free of one link or a few but the closer you get back to the situation or relationship the shorter chain is still there and grabs at you to trap you back if it can. no i can only whisper it. :(

but it counts that after all this, for now,

i’m here. still on this planet.
waving hello lol – always free to choose

edit: 7. a friend calling to check on me. laughing. caring. living. and having someone safer in the midst of circumstances here, to say good night to. 12 hours ago

letterboxerThursday April 17

So grateful for 43t to help me stay motivated. Don’t know where I’d be without it and all of you.

Paint. Amazing what paint can do to make a home look clean and new! Got most of my touch ups done yesterday, going to finish today!

Repairs. The Garage door guy is my hero! So grateful that the door works again! Especially with all the rain/snow we had this week!

Internet. I’m learning Swedish online, which still amazes me. I lived overseas many years ago and nothing like this was even a possibility (yep, I’m sounding like an old lady now, but a very grateful one!!)

Grab and go healthy breakfast: hard cooked egg, banana, coffee.

SarabandWednesday 16th April

Wednesday. Never tire of these sunny starts to the day. The forecast suggests we will see a change in a day or two so this morning is especially appreciated :)

Today’s gratitudes:

  • the sense of freedom evoked by the prospect of 3 days at home
  • long catch-up chats with E & R and an unexpected chat on the phone with little E
  • a wonderful solo walk under brilliant blue skies with the warmth and freshness of a perfect spring day
  • a heavy weariness as evening approached – and the satisfaction of knowing it followed a productive day
  • taking a few minutes to sit outside (on our new patio!), drinking in the warm evening sun and sipping a glass of wine, followed by a warm soak to ease the aches and pains :) 21 hours ago

5. Listening to classical music while studying and working out. Strangely good combo 23 hours ago

h.g.happinessWednesday 7:36 p.m.

This evening I am grateful for

1) getting everything almost done for Open House tomorrow… the students are so cute… they are like, “Man..I’m tired…we’ve been working so hard!” ;)

2) Bikram Yoga class….it’s 90 minutes long but while I’m there it only feels like 10 minutes…it also feels like how you feel when you are in labor… the concentration part…I love it!

3) talking with my MB this evening… I love her dearly

4) This Website That talks about the different poses in Bikram and the benefits to all the different body parts ~ I love that you are massaging your organs and squeezing toxins from your body!!! OH YEAH!!!

МилаApril 16

1. Teacher had extended the paper due date; but today he told me and another graduating girl (if we get an incomplete, we can’t graduate) that he would just give us A’s and let us finish it over the summer. It’s nice, because obviously we’re doing our work. Sometimes research papers need time, you know? Super grateful for that, because I don’t want to turn in something shitty and embarrassing.

2. Our class got a cookie cake for our teachers. The dude didn’t do a good job, the “spasibo” is off center, but that’s my only probably with it. I’m just glad it’s not entirely unacceptable.

3. A long shower

4. Saw best friend today, got coffee

5. It’s. almost. over. 1 day ago
