A late night quickly put together list of thankfuls. I love this linkup with Lizzi and the whole TTOT family so much that I regret when I miss out on it so here’s my week in review.
I’m thankful for having a great chiropractor helping me recover from my neck injury. He’s kind, patient, and very educational. I appreciate learning more about the physiology of my body since my background is in fitness instruction.
I’m thankful for being able to drive this week without any pain. My neck is slowly healing and there’s less compression on the nerve and my C-3 vertebra. I’m at 75 % and getting more mobility each day.
I’m thankful that I have a hot tub I can relax in. I sit under the neck and shoulder jets and just let the soothing hydrotherapy massage my sore muscles. It’s the best part of my day and a great way to start a morning.
I’m thankful for being given the clearance to do some light exercise by my chiropractor. It snowed a lot in the last while so I started shovelling. I felt so good I shovelled the whole block. I know a lot of people in my neighbourhood work in the city or are seniors. I felt good about helping and had one gentleman come out and thank me.
I’m thankful for getting caught up on my laundry and only having to put it away tomorrow. Laundry is my nemesis and for four people I have no idea how much we can accumulate in one week! I change twice a day from my daily clothes to workout clothes. But my kids that’s a whole other story. My youngest likes to put on a fashion show and has some OCD tendencies so I have to limit him to one outfit a day and as many costume changes as he wants.
I’m thankful for my love of books and my ability to read. My Mom taught me how to read when I was five and by grade 2 I was reading magazines and chapter books. There’s nothing better on a chilly winter day then curling up with a good book and a nice cup of tea.
I’m thankful for my kids listening and being helpful when it was time to tidy up this week. They have realized they get to have more rewards when they help out so tomorrow we’ll be baking up some new Pinterest treats.
I’m thankful that I was able to spend some quiet time with my love cuddling and watching movies. It’s those moments when I can feel my joy well up in my heart for how grateful I am he’s my soft place to fall.
I’m thankful for healthy meals, not having to cook as my husband made us a lovely dinner. A traditional pot roast, mashed potatoes, and mixed vegetables was just what was needed on this chilly day.
I’m thankful that I have a job as a writer/contributor at the Lose the Cape website. I’m so excited to work with their team and learn and grow as a writer. I’ll be adding onto the Pinterest boards as well so stay tuned I’ll be sharing links to my account soon. As soon as it looks less like a garage sale over there. As a bonus thankful I’m thankful I made the linkup tonight before it expires. Next week I’ll have to write out my post earlier. Onward and upward dear readers now off to dreamland I go. ? zzzzzz
