Ten Things of Thankful #70

I am mostly back to the person I was before I stupidly decided to take myself of my meds.
Moments with C:

  • He no longer wants to be “a circus.” He wants to be a cowboy.
  • While playing Lego Star Wars the other day he was using force-lightning to fry Obi-Wan Kenobi repeatedly…and laughing hysterically.

I have made some progress in my writing this week.

I discovered a program called yWriter5 this week while stalking a fellow blogger’s blog. My gawd does it make it easier to keep everything managed while writing a story. I was trying to do it all in Google Docs and managing okay, but using yWriter5 is infinitely more productive.
The response I received to my Coming Out post was overwhelmingly positive. Huge thanks to all of you who have been supporting me.
Coffee. Always coffee. I’d probably be dead without it. Or at least that’s how I’d feel…

I wrote the check for my last bankruptcy payment last Friday. Thank gawd that shit is over with.
Still have not consumed a drop of alcohol since September 12. At this point I’m going for a record. Or something. It’s been a LONG time since I went this long without a drink.
Autumn. I can’t be thankful for Autumn enough. The chilly air. The colored leaves. Football. Hoodies. Chileh. Note to self: Get over to Starbucks and get a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

I was unaware PSL’s were only for white girls. I’m not sure what this makes me since I love them.

The rain held off last night so that I, C, and my mom could watch the twins play football. They got trounced again, but they’re having fun and that’s what matters.

  1. Good πŸ™‚ Well done you on the writing, especially. I sometimes think I’m not a writer, cos my own writing is so badly neglected.

    Keep on keeping on. You’re doing really well, I reckon. Especially with the alcohol.


  2. I must be the only person in the entire United States that doesn’t like Pumpkin Spice anything.

    I loved this list of ten though, even the Pumpkin Spice Latte (someone lied to you though about it being a coffee drink).


  3. A very good list indeed! Yay for being more yourself. πŸ˜€


  4. Yay for gratitude!


  5. congrats on the outing! I like the new pic.


  6. Yay! for the entire list…. πŸ™‚

  7. O and thank you for suggesting the Ywritr5 I’m gonna give it a try.


  8. Hurray for another week without alcohol!


  9. YAY for sobriety!!! Yeah for finding a way to organize the chaos that is often writing. And coffee dear sweet yummy coffee. It feels wrong to be going to Starbucks for the salted carmel mocha but I have had a huge salt craving and it hits both my spots so perhaps nextweek I will get back to the pumpkin business


  10. You’re the bomb. I read your “Coming Out” post. Real people are so much more interesting. Sometimes I think if you’re depressed, you’re normal. It’s hard not to be affected by this crazy world. PSL is an addiction similar to alcohol, I’ve heard, but I can’t really stand the stuff – it’s too sweet for me. I do like Chai lattes – they are spicy and delicious.

  11. Congrats on alcohol free days! Congrats on finally freeing yourself from the bankruptcy repayment demon – I had to go through that myself & I know it can be a b—-!
