Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

I got home to see there was a package from Amazon. Hmmm, I couldn’t remember ordering anything. I opened it and it was a paperback book, 7 F Words. No, not that F word. The words are Focus, Faith, Freedom, Family, Finance! Fitness, Fun. Okay, I’m intrigued. Then I saw the note. It was from a friend of mine. Evidently she knows one of the authors and thought I might enjoy the book. I don’t read a lot of that kind of book, but, hey, I might learn something, right?

Then I went on my Old Folks Tour tonight. Stopped to see my uncle in rehab. He is doing quite well. My cousin and her husband were there too, but they were not the old folks I was referring to. 😉

Then off to see my dad. He never really has much to say. He’s always been a man of few words. Tonight was no exception. I think that’s why I talk so much. I always feel the need to fill the silence around him.

So, now I’ve done my visiting and tomorrow is all about me! Warren will be gone for the day. I’m taking a Tylenol PM in hopes I will be able to sleep past 5. I want to finish the book I’m reading and start another. I don’t plan to go anywhere though. Just the quiet….ahhhhhh.

One thing I am not thankful for today is this sinus headache. I had hoped it would be gone since the rain moved on. But surely by tomorrow.

So I’m thankful for my upcoming alone day. Thankful I got to see family tonight so I don’t feel guilty ignoring everyone tomorrow. Thankful that a friend thought enough of me to send me a book.

  1. Great things to be thankful for. Hope your sinus headache vanishes soon.

  2. Sinuses can be the bane of one’s existence. I hope you feel better.

  3. I know this is going to sound strange but…when I get those sorts of headaches I put one of those hot packs (from the drug store that are for muscle aches – oh my head.
    I’m so glad you will finally get a quiet day! Enjoy!
