Ten Things of Thankful #48

29d50-tenthingsbannerI have been threatened with bodily harm if I don’t compose a TToT post this week by a well-meaning, but harsh Canadian friend (you know who you are, slave-driver!). I haven’t had the time to publish a TToT the last couple of weekends due to time constraints of various natures. This weekend, though, I have time aplenty, which I’ll need to come up with a list of ten.

 

  1. I’m thankful I have all of my 25 Days, 25 Songs posts completed and scheduled. This project was much more challenging than I originally thought it would be, and had me wading through some unpleasant memories. I should have inspected the question list a bit more closely before signing up for this thing.
  2. I’m thankful for music, and long, hot showers where I can belt out a tune like a fucking rock star. 
  3. I’m thankful for buffalo chicken. It’s almost sinful how good that shit tastes.
  4. I’m thankful for veterinarians. This week my pup was diagnosed with a rare infection, the name of which I can no longer recall nor could I pronounce. Essentially, it’s an immunity defect in which her immune system is attacking her eyelids. Her eyes were seeping puss and her eyelids had massively swelled and began to split. Luckily, after just a few days on antibiotics and steroids, the swelling has gone down and she’s back to her normal, goofy self again.
  5. I’m thankful so many people are participating in, and enjoying, the music challenge. Even though some of these posts have been hard, I’m having fun with it for the most part and so are most of the others.
  6. I’m thankful for the cool weather this weekend. I’m lounging around the house in slippers, sweatpants, and a t-shirt with all of the windows open. It’s peaceful and chilly, just how I like it.
  7. The anniversary of the death of my sister-in-law’s mother was this week. While my heart goes out to her I’m thankful I still have both of my parents and that they’re relatively healthy.
  8. I’m thankful that the WordPress community has united around the injustice which has befallen our beloved Rawra. It goes to show what a wonderful place the ‘sphere can be.
  9. I’m thankful for Lego Lord of the Rings. I’m addicted right now.
  10. I’m thankful I actually found 10 things (yes, that counts). Is being thankful for being thankful ironic?
Audience Participation Time!

What are you thankful for?

    I want to know which Canadian as well. And thank her (him) for bullying you into making a list.

    What is the 25 Song/25 Day Challenge? Would I like that? I just finished the A to Z Challenge and really am not looking for more work, but, well, I don’t want to be left out if all the cool kids are doing this.

    Your pup’s eyes sound completely disgusting, but yay for good veterinary care. I need to lug our 25 pound cat to the vet and figure out why he’s peeing on our shit, mostly clean laundry and canvas duffle bags, plus barfing (always on a rug and not the hardwoods) and is generally cranky. He hates our kitten, but it seems like extreme behavior for a kitten who has lived here since Halloween.

    • If you take a look at my home page you will see what the challenge is all about. There are links to many of the posts there. The Canadian in question is Zoe, and HOLY SHIT you cat is nuts.

  7. Do you eat buffalo chicken with ranch or bleu cheese? I’m just trying to figure out if we can be friends or not.
    Glad the dog is ok. I’ve been enjoying our weather this week too!

  9. I’m thankful that you found at least 9 ways to be thankful. I’m partial to number six, as I can relate at this moment in time. : ) Call me selfish. We had a couple 100 degree days this last week and today is perfect. Due to the breeze, even a lil’ chilly. Any news on Rawra? I have checked here and there, but not too much thus far.

  10. Aw, so glad your pup is doing better! How random! Poor lil thing.

    Nice list of then, TD. And yes, being thankful for thankful counts.

  11. By the way, do you have a Pup? Humans should rock your Vet. No offense.

  12. Glad your pup is doing well. And don’t worry about the inability to pronounce/remember. The names are done that way intentionally so your doc/vet/fake medical professional sounds smarter than we are.

  13. I am thankful for the 25 songs list. It’s helped me post almost every day since I started participating.

  14. I love Lego LOTR! Haha us Canadians can be pretty harsh – it’s probably the climate – you’d think, though, what with everyone drinking a mug of maple syrup every morning we’d be a little sweeter, though! 😉

  16. Hey! I’m so glad you made it back! Whoever it was, they are my hero. I’m so sorry for your pup. This sounds awful but it does sound like she’s getting better and that is definitely something to be thankful for. As is buffalo chicken which I love. I don’t sing in the shower but really crank it up in the car. Make a complete ass of myself, in fact. It’s great you’re enjoying some good weather. Ours has been pretty terrific too!
    It is pretty amazing what our community can do when folks we are fond of are in trouble. It is one of the best things about being part of the ‘sphere 🙂

  17. Isn’t it amazing how just the act of deliberately thinking (or writing) about the things your thankful for can improve your mood and outlook. yay for gratitude!

  19. We just finished the 25 Song Challenge and I had a moment where I had to admit it was harder than expected – and another moment when I realized I totally didn’t read it all the way through like I should have! 🙂

  20. Muy bueno, amigo! Lot’s of things to say Gracias for! Poor puppy, though! Sounds like me, having my immune system attacking my own body and having to be on steroids! I wish I could be back to my doggie self after a couple of days! 🙂
