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

Thanksgiving Project – Hard Boiled Eggs

What? How can I be happy for a hard boiled egg, you ask? Let me explain.

So, I’ve had a busy day (early employee meetings all the way through evening employee meetings – with a committee meeting sandwiched in the middle). I provided lunch for the committee meeting (pulled pork, in case you are interested). Well, I misjudged the amount of pulled pork so I didn’t eat (nor did my committee chair).

Anyway, I had boiled some eggs on Sunday night and brought a couple to work. Good thing too. I still was able to have lunch (a hard boiled egg and a small bag of chips). Not the best lunch, but enough to fill me up. No idea what dinner will be when I get home around 7:30 tonight. But it won’t be another egg 😉

Plus another thing to be thankful for today is that I actually dressed up a bit. Good thing too. I just got a phone call from the Mayor asking for a favor. I was instrumental in starting an inclusiveness initiative in our community several years ago with him. And it seems that a local (well as local as you can get around here) university was going to be in town today to do a video interview for a class with him about that initiative. He asked if I would be available for them as well. So, dressing up today was good. I’m wearing jeans tomorrow so I hope there aren’t any surprises.

Today I’m thankful for a lot – good meetings, being appropriately attired, and, yes, a hard boiled egg!

Thanksgiving Project – Whew!

What a day. I spent it all with our consultant. In the middle we had two 90-minute meetings. It was all very very good, but it was also stress I didn’t need. Not bad stress, just stress. I have a killer headache tonight…I need it to rain. So, combine stress, with sinus, throw in sitting in fluorescent lights all day…and you get a huge throbbing head.

But I do have very good news! My MacBook Air arrived today. I’m so excited. After a tiny learning curve (mostly my own stupidity), I’ve got most of it set up. I need to get Office for Mac and a couple of other things downloaded tomorrow and I will be good to go. I just love that everything talks to each other with iCloud. Besides, my other laptop is a 17″ monstrosity. Hardly portable. This is 13″ and plenty big for my needs. And I hear the battery life is great.

So today, I’m thankful for my new laptop. And I’m thankful for a great day with my board and volunteers and our consultant.

But as exciting as all of that, I’m most thankful today for good news from Ionia. She is recovering (and sort of resting). I’m just happy that her prognosis is 95% she has beaten that nasty cancer. What a great friend and I am so happy. I love that lady and need her to help keep Charles and Bradley the boys in line!
