Giving Thanks, Day 33: November 18, 2017

Adapted from https://cushieblog.com/2010/11/22/40-days-of-thankfulness-days-thirty-one-to-thirty-five/   Today is the anniversary of my one and only zipline experience. I had been thinking about doing this since my kidney cancer surgery 3 years earlier.  I figured I had “extra years” and I wanted to do something kinda scary, yet fun. So, somehow, I decided on ziplining. All the following is …

Giving Thanks, Day 26: November 12, 2017

  Our son Facetimed yesterday, just to chat. I am thankful that he’s doing so well for himself, has a wonderful fiance, has a good job, good friends, is a fine musician and that he’s not afraid to say he loves his parents.   We love you, too!

As it turns out, I didn’t give thanks yesterday when the Roto-Rooter guy left yesterday as he did absolutely nothing. 🙁 Our troubles weren’t going down the drain at all.     Today, I give thanks and shed a more than a few tears for a wonderful friend, co-worker, choir buddy, special person to everyone …

  Today I am thankful that the skunk already passed by when I took Mimi out for a walk a couple days ago! It’s so not fair! I can’t smell lots of flowers or perfumes but I can smell a skunk blocks away.

I am thankful, believe it or not, that I had Cushing’s. Mind you, I wouldn’t want to have it now, although diagnoses and surgeries seem “easier” now.   Having Cushing’s taught me a lot, including how to stick up for myself, how to read medical books to learn more about my disease, how to do …

  Today I am thankful for my dog, Mimi. She’s a beautiful dog, sweet, loving and usually very mild-mannered, but she’ll bark her head off whenever she hears someone in the driveway.   Tonight, she barked at potential trick-or-treaters and we have lots of candy left over.    Thanks, Mimi!

  Today, and every day, I am thankful for coffee. Without it, I would have a daily headache and I’d have even less energy than I have now.   I first started drinking coffee when I had my first job as a waitress at a Hayes-Bickford in Boston, MA. This was a summer job. A …

  Today, I am thankful for Saturdays. It’ the one day of the week I don’t have to be anywhere, do anything. I can do webwork, if I want, but I don’t have any deadlines.   I never have doctor appointments on Saturdays, no medical testing.   No piano students. I don’t even talk to …

Giving Thanks, Day 9: October 26, 2017

  This is going to sound really stupid but today I am thankful for my dropbox.   I have files all over the place and I work on them on different computers (PC and Mac), at home or at work, on my iPhone, iPad and other places. If I’m away from home without any files (rarely happens!) …

Giving Thanks, Day 8: October 25, 2017

  TiVo. I love that I can fast forward through commercials and have all my favorite shows waiting for me when I lie down on the sofa (and fall asleep!) I probably wouldn’t have gotten one of these when we did but our son got us one for Christmas many years ago. He had it …
