I Love Thursday #17 January Wrap-Up
This is our #17 list of our loves for the week. How can it be the last Thursday of January already? LeeAnna blogs at Not Afraid of Color and shares her ‘likes’ every Thursday. Several of our friends also share on a weekly basis – check them out!
Idiosyncrasies. My friends are very tolerate (I think) of my idiosyncrasies. I am a germ-o-phobe to the max. If I know someone is sick, just stay away from me. Don’t talk to me, don’t look at me, go away. Of course I say it much nicer than that – oh I’m so sorry you’re sick! Why don’t you go home?? We had a fun play date with Ken and Carol last Saturday and Carol brought along some hand sanitizer for me. Not just one but TWO! Isn’t that just the sweetest thing? I considered wearing a Darth Vader mask – if I had one – to limit the inhaling of germs. ~smile~ I am not kidding all that much; just slightly.
Physical therapy! I have had PAIN in my feet for 1.5 years. Not every single minute thankfully but enough to bring me close to tears on some days (don’t tell Sue). I went to a new foot doctor to ask him to do surgery. Please. He said no, let’s try extreme therapy first. I think those physical therapists are rather sadistic. They like to inflict pain under the guise of ‘helping.’ Anyway, yippee – four weeks of ‘intensive’ therapy, two times a week first. I truly do believe this will help a great deal. The script calls for ‘dry needling’. Doesn’t that SOUND like it will hurt? The lady who made my appointments said it really relieves the pain. I am so thankful for anything that may relieve the pain, and that I have insurance that will cover the therapy. Oh happy day! Today is my first appointment at 3 p.m.
Layoff due to cutback. This one might be a hard one to wrap your head around. Our Godson and nephew, Richard, was unexpectedly laid off from his job. He was there for most of his adult life, and was a big SHOCK. I told him it was one door closing and another opening opportunity. It is his chance to change careers if he wanted – dream big and go after that dream. He wants to stay with the same type of job because he loved that job. Great! We helped beef up his resume and a draft cover letter so he can get it out there. Don’t forget LinkedIn, Indeed, and all the connections you already have with family and friends. I know he’ll land on his feet shortly, and it will be the best thing that ever happened to him/them (he and his wife have three kids). Don’t you agree?!
Eagles vs. Vikings. Both teams are great! Good enough to be in the NFC playoff game and one step from the big one – the Super Bowl. Remember I said it was hard for me to say Go Vikings Go, but I meant it. I watched it last Sunday night even though it was on wayyyyyyyy too late for me to stay up. Did they make it? Do you know or care? HAHA! I do! No they did not win. Too bad as it would have been the Vikings, in their home stadium, and a possible first Super Win at home is TOO COOL! Really – New England had to win AGAIN?!!! Good grief. So it will be the Philadelphia Eagles against those darn NE Patriots in the last game of this football season.
Guacamole! I have lived 57 years hating guacamole. It was a texture thing . . . and green thing! Last year, we visited a good friend and her husband in Tempe, AZ. They took us to an authentic Mexican restaurant where they made a rough-chopped guacamole at the table. To say it was delicious is a grave understatement. It did convert me to a guac lover though. Tonight, to cheer on the Vikings, we made our own version of that guac and I loved every bite of it!
Doesn’t that just look yummy?! With some fresh Tostitos and a nice Diet Coke Lime. Good stuff.
I always save the best for last, and our sweet boy. Did you know I love him to pieces?! If not, (where have you been?) look at this face! Enough said, as my friend Cindy Anderson says as she shares a quote on her website ~smile~:
He’ll probably eat guacamole with me when he gets just a little older. ~smile~ His parents entered him a cutest baby contest. How can he NOT win?! Oh yeah, I am voting as often as I can. HAHA!
That’s it for this week! I hope your week is filled with many blessings. Happy Thursday!
