Month of Thanks: The Great Catchup.

Day 8: I am thankful for lip balm. Without it, my life would literally be miserable. ♥

Day 9: it's after midnight, and at this exact moment, I am so terribly grateful for modern transportation.

Day ten: I am insanely grateful for all of the love and support I get in all of my endeavors. Even when people tell me things I don't want to hear, I'm grateful that they felt they need to reach out to me.

Keep in mind that this is, in fact, different than telling me how to live my life. I will never be grateful for anyone who thinks I'm not capable of making my own decisions and living my own life. "your lack of faith disturbs me."

Day 12: I am thankful for a safe (free) flight and a tattooed scumbag.

Day 13: I am thankful for protein, vegan protein!  & Ivy!! ♥

Day 14: I am thankful for coffee. Fresh pots!!!
ETA: It's PUMPKIN coffee! =D From Trader Joe's, for those of you who want some.

Day 15:
  I am thankful for having a name tag when I work in seasonal retail... it's validating, ha.

Day 16:
  I am thankful for red aprons and new co-workers.

Day 17:
  I am thankful for people who believe in me enough to ask for favors to my face.

Day 18:
  I am thankful for friends, photoshoots & art.

Day 19:
  Yesterday, I was thankful for a level headed boyfriend & grippos.

Day 20:
  Today, I am thankful for cookies and live in chefs.

Day 21:  I am thankful for long hours at work because that means I will have a good paycheck.  Can't complain about being able to make money.

Day 22:  I am thankful for the common bond among men - they love to try to one up each other.  I am especially grateful for a well mannered man who took it like a champ, haha.  I love you baby.

Day 23:  I am thankful for caffeine.  Red bull, soda, coffee, espresso, all of it.

Day 24:  I am thankful for co-workers who are worried about me and my stupid digestive disease.  Thanks for looking out for me ladies (and gentleman).

Day 25:  I am so very thankful for my first day off since Clancy arrived.

Mail Time! Conscious Box October 2012!

This arrived today. It's mostly edible, and when I would usually want more variety, I think I'm totally okay with it this month!  ETA:  I think this is the regular box from October, which was randomly sent to me, so thank you Conscious Box!  =D

Packing list:
  • RW Garcia's 3 Seed Curry & Mango Dippers
  • GoodLight Natural Candles in Unscented
  • Crum Creek Mills Soy Nut Mix
  • Teatulia Peppermint Tea
  • Bumble Bar in Original Peanut (hard to see in photo; sorry!)
  • Larabar Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Mini
  • Clandestino Banana Bar
  • Zarbee's All-Natural Children's Cough Syrup to Go
  • Yummy Earth Organic Sucker in Googly Grape
  • Vita Rocks in Lemon Burst
  • GeoDeo deodorant in Island

So. I can't say I'm excited about the GeoDeo. I already have one of these, and it smells like a damn wine cooler! I might save it and give it to someone. I have an open one if I really decide I want to try it. But I really can't get past the scent. I'm sure the other scents are awesome though.

I really can't wait to eat EVERYTHING in this box.  Huzzah, Conscious Box!!

A Month of Thanks, Week One.

I don't want to post these daily.  I feel like that'd clog up your feeds and make you thankful that I could get hit by a bus any day.  These are pulled straight off of my Facebook.
  • Day 1: First & foremost, I am thankful for my health and life, even with cold and sinus problems abound. It could certainly be worse and I am very aware of that.

  • Day 2: I am thankful for my jobs and my career. I am by no means well off, but I can pay my bills and feed myself.

  • Day 3: I am thankful for my true friends. There are a handful of people that I know, within reason, always have my back.

  • Day 4: I am thankful for Lisa Butters, who has proven time and again that all I need to say is "I need you" and she will be by my side, no questions asked. Girls like her are few and far between. ♥

  • Day 5: I am thankful for my dog. There were times that I wasn't sure he'd survive the life he's led. He is my baby and my life would be very different without him.

  • Day 6: I am thankful for my family. We constantly fight and I certainly do not see eye to eye with them on pretty much anything, but I know they care about me.

  • Day 7: I am thankful for new beginnings. I am leaping head first into a new chapter of my life and I am so grateful to know that I have these new opportunities in love and life before me.
The next few won't be so serious. Probably silly things like, "I am stupid thankful for tea. Tea rules." *sips her latte*

She is leaving me soon to live with her father, but I am thankful for my furry little lover, Ickis, too.
