Thanks, Case of the Mondays

Yesterday was Monday but today FEELS like Monday. Feeling very exhausted, but…

I am very thankful that last night I submitted my last grad school paper for awhile. I’ve got about two months off and I am very excited for a long needed break.

I am also thankful for opportunity that is presenting itself later this week. Feel free to keep me in your prayers around 10am on Thursday.

Today (well technically yesterday but I haven’t gone to sleep yet so that doesn’t count), I was thankful to finish my second to last paper for my current class and find a decent deal on the pricey-ass book for my next class. !┬íViva la Criminology!

Wednesday, I was thankful at the end of the day because it was my last real work day of the week.

Thursday, I was very thankful to have the opportunity to attend the ACJS Annual Meeting where I met a bunch of the people in my graduate program, learned some really interesting info, and got my picture taken with Ed Rendell.

Today, I’m thankful that it’s almost the weekend and that, despite the rain, it’s going to be almost 50 degrees today.

On Sunday, I was very thankful for some quiet time to finish chores while my kids were at Sunday School.

I was also extremely thankful for how much my little man, Weston, enjoyed his 3rd birthday party.

Yesterday, I was thankful that my little man turned three… here’s hoping to the end if the terrible twos.

Last night, I was thankful that I got my weekly grad school paper done in time, even if it was only 1 minute before the deadline… literally!

Today, I’m thankful that I get to bring my Cashman to see THE LEGO MOVIE! Woot woot!

Thanks, Day 27

Yesterday, I was very thankful to not be at work. I got to get some cleaning done, watch a couple of movies, set up a new computer for my grams-in-law (converting PC people to Mac users makes me giddy), got a little jumpstart on my weekly grad school assignment, and all while in the comfort of my own home. While I am en route to work today, I realize how thankful I am that I have a Monday to Friday steady gig that allows for family and homebody time!
