So… this turned out to be a bit of a rough week. I made an unwise decision over the weekend (it was a good book that I hadn’t read before, but I should not have decided to finish it instead of sleeping… and, yes, I do know better by now…) which created a domino effect with my sleep cycle for the first half of the week.
I did, however, manage to get some of the mountain of dishes done on Monday evening and the laundry done on Tuesday evening and more dishes Wednesday. (I figure as long as I wash a few more dishes than I use every day, then eventually the pile will be gone and my kitchen will be clean… it’s just gonna take me a while to get there.) Then yesterday morning, Wednesday, the main road on my route to work was closed because of a horrible crash and so I had to drive the long way around which made me half an hour later than I already was going to be. (Yes, I did call and let the admin. assistant know.) Plus, I didn’t get any of the photo sorting done that I wanted to over the last five days,
hence the placeholder below, and my fishtank really needs cleaned…
In spite of all that, though, I still have things to be thankful for. Things like:
- beauty – I found it this week in clouds, in flowers, in caring friends
- people that are patient with me
- laundry machines
- that aforementioned laundry machines are only one flight of stairs away
- spaghetti sauce I had frozen, so I didn’t have to think up a meal when I was tired
- renewed contact with friends from long ago and far away
Did you have a rough week too? Have you found anything to be thankful for in spite of it that you wouldn’t mind sharing?
