This past week has been rough. I went through a lot of severe anxiety, cravings, and depression. This weekend was incredible and a nice change from the past week. So I’m thankful.
I’m grateful that I spent Saturday focused on my kids. We got candy at HEB, went to see a movie (Sing), and went out to eat at Chili’s. We got home kind of late, but I let them stay up and play on the Wii. They just had a good day all around!
I’m grateful for my family.
I’m grateful for God’s word, She Reads Truth, and my online journal (Penzu).
I’m grateful for the little things.
I’m grateful for online AA. This will save me so much time and money!
I’m grateful for the ability to buy groceries without feeling guilty.
I’m grateful that I had energy on Sunday to be super productive. You can read about it in my post: Weekend Prep, January 15th.
Yesterday I woke up feeling horrible. Terrible headache, stuffy nose and ears, dizzy, very sore throat. I thought I was coming down sick. Robert was off so he told me to go back to bed. I slept another 3 hours and woke up at 10:15 feeling much better. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get ready to go to AA quickly enough, so I ended up staying home. But I’m grateful that Robert was off so that I could go back to bed!
After some time resting, I’m grateful that I had a lot of energy to do more work. I wrote this post: Simplifying and Organizing. I ended up organizing my room and closet and Levi’s room and closet (his room only took like 10 minutes, but his closet was pretty rough).
I got rid of so many clothes. A large black trash bag full in my room and a kitchen trash bag in Levi’s room.
Robert took Ethan to buy food for their Big Bend trip this weekend, so I took the other two to our favorite restaurant in Rocksprings. It’s so amazing.
When I got home, I got to work to prep breakfasts (smoothie bags with frozen banana, blueberry, and kale and fresh strawberry; protein banana chocolate chip muffins) and lunches (cottage cheese or gouda and deli meat; fresh veggies and hummus; Triscuits; boiled egg… and nuts for snack) for the week.
I’m grateful for all the energy and desire to do what I did. And I’m grateful for nights to spend with my hubby. The kids go to bed early so we have that time.
I have so much to be grateful for. I could go on and on.
