Content and exhausted...

Some time to reflect on the last week and share some things that have made me grateful.
No time to be depressed when you are happy for what you have.

...wool socks. For real. If you do not own a pair, or 3, you need to. I promise. You will thank me later.

...passing emissions testing on the first try with my car. This never ever happens and we usually end up with crazy repairs needed before we can get new license plates. 

...receiving Shemp's body and paw print back. Made it even more surreal but actually put me at peace to know he is home again.

...getting through a successful Polar Express run at work. This my be our last year doing it so Nanners, Ryguy, Mark and got to experience a train for the first time. Completely magical.

... a final realization that it is truly ok for me to be on the medications I am on. I was worried for a long time about becoming an addict as our family is full of them however this month has been a true realization of how much I have gotten my life back. Months ago I couldn't stay awake past 6pm and if you had mentioned the word overtime at work I would have laughed in your face. This month I have worked over 25 hours of OT alone and am now able to stay awake past 8pm. Bedtime is at the latest of 9 so I'm *living dangerously* but it is fabulous progress.  

...having enough paid time off to take a day when I finally crashed to sleep for 3 hours.

...a 3 1/2 day holiday weekend to enjoy with my kids.

...as horrible I hate to admit. Monster.

...a brother who decides to spend his free time with his nieces and nephews and babysits almost on demand.
