Thankful Thursdays Numero Tre

Can you believe it's already time for this week's Thankful Thursdays post?  Me neither. Can you believe there is only one more Thankful Thursdays post after this?  Me neither! 

Anybody watch Monday's Glee?  I can't look at this without wanting to chant "tots."

I am not so much bursting with an abundance of positives this week, or things to be thankful for. They are downright boring, this batch, and in fact i had to scrape for 5 things to come up with.  I didn't have a bad week, or nothing hideous happened, it just was rather blah and anxiety filled for me. 

1.  On Sunday i met my mom, stepdad, and brother for lunch.  It was yummy, we had a nice time, and i was glad to see them.  The end.

2.  Monday was a really long day-i left my house at 6am, and at 6pm, i returned.  The positive?  I took a relaxing train ride to my destination and didn't have to drive the 4 hours total.  The negative (you know, if one was focusing on that) -my ticket was stuck in the machine which i had to jam my hand up and into to retrieve it.  Then someone had to help me (positive) b/c i couldn't pry it out with my little nubby hands.  I almost missed the train home-literally ran there- and would have had to wait an hour for the next one.  I did miss the connecting train, and had to wait 20 minutes.  But it was an express (positive) so i got home quicker.  And home is good.

3.  I am going to a conference today merely for the delicious food.  I hope it's as yummy as i remember it from last year. 

4.  Um, hopefully i will be expanding my outreach program?  Depends on the interest of the audience, but fingers crossed.

5.  It's almost the weekend, and we have fun things planned.  Family.  Mountains.  Wine.  Good restaurant. Boggle. Maybe these will be my 5 for next week, but let's hope this'll just be rolled into one.

Please tell me you had some serious fun this week!  Post your link in the comments if you've got one, my pretties.

I'm linking to fave things fri, bloggy readingThe first and second in the series are good, too. Check 'em.

I couldn't even write one this week because it sucked so bad. I've had a very negative weekend and week until today. But if I were to write my post today, I would add that my boss gave me flowers and I got a compliment in kickboxing class that I was strong!

Well, as you know, we've had a pretty rough week. But that doesn't mean I don't have plenty to be thankful for (even though I didn't get to join your Thankful Thursday like I had originally planned for my blog).

1. I'm thankful my Doodle is making a full recovery so quickly!

2. I'm thankful that we have such a fabulous children's hospital here and that I live in a country where immediate healthcare needs can be taken care of!

3. I'm thankful we have healthcare insurance!!

4. I'm thankful for my family and friends who love us and were there for us in our time of need or at least were willing to drop everything and drive 6 hours if we needed them to (which we didn't)!

5. I'm thankful for our fantastic family doctor who I found years ago by playing enee-menee-minee-mo with a list of approved doctors. :)

6. I'm thankful for my cats who cried like babies when we finally came home from the hospital because they missed us so much (or maybe it was just moist dinner they missed...but either way). ;)
