Good morning! Right now the house is pretty quiet since most of my family is still asleep. I’m sitting at my desk with a hot cup of coffee, hoping that it will soothe my throat. My family and I have the flu, so much of this week was spent buying massive amounts of Kleenex, lemons, and honey. Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked yet.
I really enjoyed taking the time last week to share the things I’m grateful for so it may become a regular feature on this blog.
This week I’m grateful for:
- The fact that I was able to read two books! Can you believe it? Two books after not being able to finish an adult book since December! The really sweet part about it, is that I finished them both this weekend. The books: How Georgia Became O’Keefe by Karen Karbo and The Thorn and the Blossom by Theodora Goss. There’s something about not being able to read that takes an emotional toll. Now I feel like I have my reading mojo back.
- Libraries and librarians. If you’re a librarian or work at a library, you rock! I have three research projects to do and I’ve already needed massive amounts of psychology articles. If it weren’t for the university and college librarians, I wouldn’t have the reading material that I needed.
- Once again I’m grateful for LetterMo. I’m finding it really therapeutic to write letters to people. I don’t talk about myself in the letters but just writing people and wishing them a good day makes my day better. I’ll probably keep writing letters after this month is over.
What I’m least grateful for:
- Bombing my math test. It’s funny that it’s not bothering me that much. I plan on doing a much better job on my next test. I also think math was the reason why I couldn’t read either. I put too much pressure on myself to do math instead of taking pockets of time to read.
- Having the flu.
So that’s it. What are you grateful for this week?
