I haven't updated lately here. It's not that I've run out of things to be grateful about, but life gets busy, and... sometimes the bad things overshadow the good. I lost a friend of mine from college a week ago today, to uterine cancer. If you want to check out her journal, she was at elanurel. I only wish that you all could have known her in life, rather than being linked to her journal after she's gone.

But I suppose I do have something to be grateful for, after all - I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to know her. She was warm and witty and funny and full of life. Another friend described her as 'vibrant', and that is a term I can agree with fully.

I am sick - again. That's what I get for driving a school bus, right? Anyway, I got some REALLY good sleep, so I can't complain.

But what I'm thankful for today isn't sleep - GASP! - but the fact that I was able to catch last year's Valentine's eggs for my kids today on Dragon Cave. I just wasn't fast enough to catch for all four of us in the family last year, but thankfully with the Valentine's dragons being able to breed, I was finally able to get them some. YAY!

It's the little things that make me happy. :)

I am thankful for an Alternate Vine Dragon from the Dragon Cave! :)

I didn't realize it was so late. Last thing for me on the computer for the night. I've decided that since I've already broken my resolution to post EVERY day, that as long as I post a few times a week I'm still sufficiently sticking to my resolution and my purpose of finding things in my life to be grateful for.

On that note, even though I've mentioned it before, I'm going to say again that I'm grateful for RP and the people who go along for the ride and put up with me. Because of my schedule, during the week I can sometimes manage only a handful of comments per night, if that. Sometimes it's only one, sometimes none at all. And yet both on IJ and on LJ, I've found a great bunch of people to play with and share ideas with, who are also understanding of and willing to work around my schedule. luckybluestar, you are a gem! :D But I've also recently been tagged by someone who plays a Dean Winchester on LJ, and the mun was practically gushing over my portrayal of Kitt there, to the point where she asked me for a 'verse. :) That pretty much made my entire WEEK right there. It's a Dean! With Kitt! Epic RP will be had! Also on LJ, Kitt's been attracting the attention of a few other muses, and I've had a blast interacting with them. I have no idea who the muns are and don't particularly care - we're having a great time, no pressure, no strings, just some good cracky fun. What a great stress reliever after the week I've had, let me tell you.

So anyway, longish post is long, but I'm thankful for online RP fun. :)

I'm thankful for a wonderful boss who dropped off the Goddess Of Help - an old friend of his- to help me out until this stupid knee heals. :)

I am thankful for good friends who care about me.

Well I haven't been keeping up much...

But I'm thankful for well. Thankful people. I got so used to never being told 'thank you' for anything I did, that when my grandmother said it I honestly almost cried. So I'm thankful for people who notice when someone puts an effort out for them.

Oh dear. Another day that was more bad than good, I think. Let's see. Um. LOL, okay. Now that I've had a kid throw up on my bus, I'm thankful I don't have to live in fear and dread of the day anymore?

YAY! :P

I got away from this for a few days, just when I needed it most. I feel pretty bad about that, but life goes on, and even though it would seem I've broken my New Year's resolution already, there was nothing in my resolution to say I couldn't start over.

I had some rather bad news earlier this week that sent me into a tailspin. After talking with several people, I'm feeling a bit better about things, and realizing that even though the news itself is bad, the opportunities that can arise from it are good, and worth exploring. So that is what I am thankful for today - new opportunities.

And the Supernatural bloopers videos that I watched certainly didn't hurt. :)

Today I am thankful that, though I may be middle-aged and overweight and suffering from sciatica, I'm still spry enough to climb up onto the hood of my bus! Go me! :D
