Yowza it’s Thursday once again! This week is flying by! Probably because Christmas is almost upon us and I am not completed prepared.
I’m thankful for my whole family. I’m very excited to head home for the holidays to celebrate with my family. I love all our family celebrations especially when we play games—card games and board games. Hopefully I will be able to convince my parents to play Bananagrams!
I’m thankful for a whole week off! My company was originally scheduled to have Monday and Tuesday off next week (26th and 27th) but now we are getting the whole week off! I’m very happy because with this extra vacation I can take a mini vacation. I’m flying out to Colorado on Wednesday to see my friend Danielle. I haven’t seen her in almost a year so I’m pumped!
I’m thankful for my job. Especially in a time when so many people are unemployed. I’m thankful that I found such a great job as my first job out of school. It really is a great place to work and I enjoy my coworkers. Where else can you have a potluck and enjoy a beer during lunch? Having a job has also allowed me to buy many gifts for those that I loved.
I’m thankful for peppermint tea. I have apparently been developing an addiction to tea because I feel like I’ve mentioned several weeks in a row. The peppermint tea makes me feel all festive. It’s the only peppermint thing I’ve consumed yet this season. No candy canes yet for me!
I’m thankful that the days are getting longer. Okay so it still gets dark at about 4:03 pm but we are on the upswing! The shortest day of the year was the winter solstice yesterday? (I think) and now they are going to get longer. I can’t wait until the sun stays out till after I get off work so I can go for a run outside. I’ve been doing a few interval runs on the treadmill, but it really is not my favorite.
