Thankful Thursday - December 12, 2013


A while back I had the opportunity to attend a conference workshop on blogging.  The gal, herself a blogger, shared some excellent information and tips on being a consistent, successful blogger.  One of the take aways I got was about posting a quick post once a week – “no matter what”.  She suggested writing about a set number of highlights of your week on one specific day of the week.  I am adjusting this and choose to post at least 3 highlights, tips or trivia, etc., regarding my week and up to 10 to keep with the “letter T” theme.  🙂   I’ve chosen to do it on Thursday becos I don’t have any constant commitments between my part-time and full-time jobs, or my business on that day.  I figured that should allow me time for a quickie post each and every week, right?

So this is the launch of what I have decided to call Thankful Thursday.

1.  I am thankful this week that I was able to get my Christmas gift wrapping started. Since I started working full-time 2 1/2 months ago, it’s been a real struggle for me to get organized so I can keep up with all the things I used to do with 30 hours a week less to do it!  I surprised myself and got the majority of my Christmas shopping done in 2 days so that energized me and I am more than half way done with the wrapping.  I’m winning!!  🙂

2. I’m grateful to have celebrated my mother in law’s birthday with her this week.  She has alzheimer’s and I miss her so much.  She had a very good day on her birthday 🙂

3.  I was happy to dance for over an hour at my husband’s work Christmas party where there was a live band.  Nothing like fitness and fun at the same time!  I love dancing and haven’t done it but once since I’ve started working.  I lost 1.5 pounds overnite doing that!  How’s that for a “Yes, please!”?
