THANKFUL FRIDAYS

This week has been one of the most physically demanding weeks I've had in a long time. I've been swamped with my own projects at work topped off with some of the other post doc's projects (I need to learn to say no). Sleeping has been a bit wonky this week and all of this sounds a little whiny. Well, OK, a lot whiny. But the weekend is free and clear (well, not the weather) and I have plans. Big plans. First, I plan on doing a little extra sleeping. Then I might finally take the blue toenail polish off of my toes (been there since the first of April) and trim my nails. I'm going to re-watch some things on Hulu, do some laundry and grocery shopping, attend a graduation party, and sleep. Oh...I might go to the mall and use my free panty gift card. And I suppose what I'm really grateful for today is the freedom of flexibility and spontaneity. I have zero lofty goal to accomplish this weekend, nothing that has to be done or else (oh, except our insurance paper work).

I am thankful for the rain that is nourishing the vegetable garden. I am thankful for my meditation practice that has been so important for me this week. I am thankful for Chris for many many reasons. I am thankful for the day.

Have a great weekend!
