Thankful Thursday

I am in a funk today. Just feeling all blech & wishing that I could sleep for about 24 hours. Not that my body would let me stay in bed that long. I think it's just rude how my body has betrayed me in my old middle age. However, I do have some things to be thankful about:

·         One of the reasons I'm in a funk is that my new doctor really could have cared less about my hip pain - before I'd even gotten my complaint out of my mouth she was giving me a referral to an orthopedic doctor. And you know, I'm actually thankful about that - he probably will be very interested in my hip. I hope. I'm thankful I have an appointment with him tomorrow. 

·         I'm thankful for the internet so I can look up the numbers of mysterious callers to see who they are. The one this evening was not a bill collector (not that we're past due on anything, but since I work for a collection agency that's the first thing I think). It was Discover card wanted to sell Dr. M something. No thanks Discover!

·        Today was mostly gorgeous - in the 60s, sunny. When I got home I almost pulled out our swing, but since I'm having trouble even walking [slight exaggeration - it's just pretty painful right now] I decided that trying to woman-handle that thing wasn't the best idea. 

·         The Reds are undefeated! Of course, the pitcher has walked the three batters & given up four runs in the first inning this evening so that record might not make it until the end of the season.

It’s your turn! What are you thankful for today?


  1. I'm thankful my friend is letting me use her flat lap tomorrow.

    I'm thankful a guy came by and hauled off an old bathtub that we put on the street about 30 minutes previous.

    I'm thankful for chinese food delivered.

  2. Better watch out - the mighty Diamondbacks are coming to town!

  3. I don't know why, but I am always surprised to hear you talk about baseball. I don't get it, but I guess fans are everywhere!

    Hope your new doc helps you out.

  4. It's horrible to say, but I'm thankful that I'm not alone in my misery, of wanting to just sleep the spring away until the sun comes out to stay.

  5. I don't like the sound of that hip issue. It's good that you're going to an ortho.

    60s huh? I'm going to check our weather right now. My friend wants to go to the botanical gardens near us today.

    Feel better, hipster!

  6. Sorry about pain in the hip-
    I have been sad underneath- (a vein of sad)for a while...BUT It doesn't mean
    I cannot be grateful- Mostly healthy,
    (family and friends too!!) Spring is coming! Birds are singing, Garden is budding, I had a 4 day B'day celebration
    (- Great food!) and I keep reminding myself CHANGE is in the air! Thanks.

  7. Ha...I was just getting ready to do a grouchy post about my Dr appointment. You should hear the complaining about our Cardinals. They just got started. I think everyone is grouchy.

  8. I recommend a good physical therapist for your hip. I have one here that I would give my life for, she is that good. Sorry you're continuing to hurt.

    As you know, I'm always thankful for you!

  9. Lidoderm patches may help your hip until they can figure out what's wrong with the joint.


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
