Happy new year I’m happy to be linking up with Lizzi and the TTOT group. I think of them as shiny happy people who encourage me to find my happy and share it here with you today. So without further ado my list of thankfuls.
I’m thankful for the ushering in of a new year that fills me with promising adventures and creative possibilities. I made a list of restorations as I refer to them instead of resolutions. As I’m restoring my goal of things I was already working on in 2015.
I’m thankful for having extended medical coverage and able to see my chiropractor regularly. I injured my neck and it’s made for a long week of recuperating and encouraging myself to just rest. I have a busy household and that’s no always possible to shirk my responsibilities. But I spent today reading, folding laundry, resting and watching the Golden Globes.
I’m thankful for my wonderful family for looking after me this week while I recover. It’s a scary thing when you lose the ability to do daily functions as getting dressed, cooking, and housework. My kids have been amazing looking after me one feeding me oranges all day when I couldn’t move from my bed. The other coming home from school helping me shuffle to and fr the bathroom and making me hot chocolate and reading to me to cheer me up.
I’m thankful for being able to move by Saturday and the dizzy spells to dissipate. Nothing worse than the room spinning when you haven’t had a drop of alcohol to induce it! I was able to cheer on my oldest at his hockey game while colouring with my youngest while he played at my feet.
I’m thankful for my adult colouring books and lovely pencil crayons and felts I received for Christmas. They really do help me relieve my stress and boredom while I’m lying in bed trying to forget about the pain I’ve been in.
I’m thankful for Netflix yes I said it. I’ve bee laying in bed with my laptop and watching everything from romantic comedies, action/adventure, and a Peppa the Pig marathon. That was for my son’s enjoyment I can only take so much of Peppa’s family. If it wasn’t for the cornucopia of movies to watch I’d be bitter and bored with just the tv for entertainment. I don’t watch daytime tv and I stopped watching talk shows since Oprah switched networks.
I’m thankful for my youngest son always being by my side and his many costume changes while he entertained me with his superhero puppet show. He has the love of the theatre just like his Mama.
I’m thankful for the Hollywood Foreign Press getting it right and voting the Revenant as best movie and Leonardo Decaprio as best actor. I haven’t seen the movie yet but I believe it’s an Oscar contender. Any movie that supports First Nations and brings more awareness to Indigenous culture and actors in film gets my vote. I was also quite excited that they filmed the movie in my part of Canada.
I’m thankful for ice packs, grain begs, portable precision massager, ibuprofen, and muscle rub. All these essentials have helped me to be upright and on the mend. I’m missing my daily workouts but I know it’s important to take care of my self as exercise will always be there when I’m fully recovered and I get the clearance from my chiropractor.
I’m thankful for the success of my little blog that keeps growing each week, meeting more online like minded friendly writers, positive interaction on my Facebook page, and a successful book review of Science of Parenthood. And since this is a late linkup I’m thankful for my warm and cozy bed.
