Today I am grateful that I was able to laugh when my ex-husband sent me a snarky email reply that said "as usual it's a pleasure to deal with you. Go eat another brownie or six (again)." That's all you got?

Today I am grateful for benedryl. I know that's stupid, but when I was up with insomnia AGAIN at 4:30, half a benedryl helped me to get a couple extra hours of sleep. Maybe tonight I won't need it!!

Today, I am grateful for a child who will play on her own and let me sleep and a husband who will walk the dog down to the bakery and bring us back treats. I am also grateful for the willpower to eat only half of my treat and share the rest with him.

So I said yesterday that I thought today I would be grateful for sleep, and I am, but what I'm REALLY grateful for today is to step on the scale and realize that I've finally broken my plateau. I lost a pound this week, which is more than I've lost in the last three weeks. And all it took was eating more food, and doing less exercise. Sigh. The irony of the way things work out sometimes just amazes me.

I saw this today in my Spark mail, wanted to pass it along:

Don't put off living the life you want

There is no lesson for today. You have permission to stop thinking for a moment and just enjoy yourself. Stop looking at your computer right now and go look at the world. Rediscover the natural wonders that you walk past every day. How can there possibly be that many shades of green? Let your mind be grateful for a break. Don't think, don't strain. Let the memories of loved ones remind you of your favorite times. Close your eyes and try to smell the sunshine. Listen to your heart beat in your ears. If it's raining, smile at the thought of the flowers that will soon follow. If you're surrounded by buildings, celebrate the creative genius of human beings. See the hope, the alarm, the love, the grief in faces that stream by. Thank whomever you'd like to thank for the chance to even be here. For a moment today, don't worry about being better. Just be.

It was fantastic and we were up laughing a long time, way too long, I'm a little tired this morning, haha...maybe tomorrow I will be grateful for sleep!

Today I am grateful for the attitude change spark people has ignited in me. When I woke up at 5 am instead of vegging in front of the tv. I did some laundry and picked up a little bit before logging onto SP. Now I think I'll go back to sleep (need to ditch this cold!)

Today I am grateful for my financial independence. I still remember the first time I encountered a problem with a big $ fix and I didn't have to ask my parents for help. I wrote them a note telling them about it and how proud of myself I was. That was 15 years ago. I am still thankful today that I can support myself and my children comfortably.

Today I'm thankful for my parents. Without them I wouldn't be here right now obviously. They are so supportive of everything I do. Without them, I would still be in some financial trouble because they loaned us some money to get us out of trouble. We are slowly paying them back without any interest. My mom also watches my son 1 day a week so that we don't have to pay for an extra day of daycare.

Today I am thankful for a heater than works. This morning was the first time we needed to use it since early in the year, and after taking 7-8 months off, you never know how the heater will run that first time. I'm thankful that it's running fine.

I'm also thankful to have hit the halfway point for NaNoWriMo last night. I'm ready to get off mybutt and start moving again, but I want to finish my writing first!
