that I found the strength to not kill a co-worker who gave me just a little too much attitude after she interrupted my phone call with a platinum account.

Snoopy's avatar

Poof….you might not be so thankful tomorrow when your coworker irritates you again….so….be strong!

poofandmook's avatar

actually she knows not to speak to me unless absolutely necessary. Today was the first time in probably 2 weeks.

I got to use a golf gift certificate that expired 8 months ago.

Snoopy's avatar

Kev: NICE!

kevbo's avatar

Yeah, my bro-in-law has been out of commission with two new kids in two years, so I hadn’t had a good chance to use it, and I was feeling guilty because my dad gave it to me for Christmas. So, it worked out. Yahoo!

My Spanish teacher had the grace not to quiz us on past tense verb conjugations I haven’t reviewed since last year…. My precal and trig teachers are coming back to our high school tonight for tutorials for anyone who needs it…. The China Royale delivered some awesome Egg Pau Mein… :)

All three of my boys enjoyed their first day of school.

I feel like the person wearing black pants….and a navy patterned blouse….who is trying to pass it off as matching!

And now back to regular programming….

I am thankful that someone just taught me how to whisper

MacBean's avatar

This was a hard question to answer; I had a really rough day. But… I’m still breathing! Woohoo!

Snoopy's avatar

MacBean. You also appear to have all of your tactile sensation. you are typing. Not everyone can claim that….

I rode my bike down our gravelly steep driveway and didn’t fall.

My hangover was a lot less brutal than I imagined it would be. Cheers to being functional.

Off to the bar…

Try tylenol before bed even if you don’t think you need it….and a giant glass of water. Good luck.

my 12 hour plane ride left 40 minutes early and there was no one sitting in the seat next to me so i could spread out. the second flight (7 hours) wasnt that bad either.

I forgot to bring a snack to work, and Tim brought me yummy fake chickn nuggets, homemade soup, and almonds even though it was out of his way. oh, and my boss liked him. they were in the same dorm in college.

Knotmyday's avatar

welcome back, mtl zack

@chica; Fake? What brand?

hearkat's avatar

I am thankful that my boyfriend was respectful when he broke up with me this morning. And I am grateful for the time we had together, with many wonderful memories and some valuable life lessons.

I am thankful that the appraiser is finally going out to check the additional damage that the body shop found that resulted from an accident 7 weeks ago.

I am glad that the court date for the woman that ran the stop sign and hit me has been rescheduled to a date and time that I can attend.

I am grateful that my injuries were not severe, so I was able to remove all my things from my boyfriends home without much physical difficulties.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

mirza's avatar

My student loan got approved and i got an awesome haircut

hearkat's avatar

@La Chica Gomela and @Snoopy:
Thanks!

I am glad you posted this question today. I have worked long and hard to change from a cynical pessemist to a hopeful realist. I have been through far more difficult situations, and there are others who are suffering much worse than I ever have. So this reminded me to practice the conscious gratitude that has helped me overcome so much, rather than retreating into my old habit of wallowing in self-pity. :-)

Tomorrow is another day…..
It could always be worse…....

hearkat's avatar

No, the grass is rarely greener. Usually those who see things that way are discontent within themselves, and are always looking to external sources or circumstances to make them “happy” or at least to distract them for a while… but inevitably, they find themselves discontent because only the scenery has changed. “Wherever you go, there you are.”

Snoopy's avatar

—ok. maybe that one was a bad choice. but you get the idea :)—
