Three things I’m grateful for this week: February 6

  • A lessening of my anger and anxiety. I’ve spoken here before about my mental health issues and I need to write a longer post to deal with it more fully but suffice it to say that the past few weeks have been very bad and it’s starting to get better.
  • Comfortable clothes. I might look like a lumberjack today but I’m warm and cozy and I didn’t have to use any brain power to coordinate what I was going to wear. Work is tough right now and I have my Marketing class to keep up with plus spending time with TCB and The Pug – it’s a lot, so it’s nice to be able to kick my feet up on the desk with a cup of Black Currant tea and my Paul Bunyan look while I’m working.

  • My Puggy pal. I’ve always been a cat person. We had dogs when I was a kid but I never really bonded with any of them. But Alouysius T. Pug is different. His whole attitude toward life makes me smile in spite of myself. I’m so very grateful to have his little, squishy face to come home to every night!

What are you grateful for this week?

  • Hi Denise,
    I just read this article & thought you might find something of interest here. It recounts new information about the Mediterranean Diet, specifically that it has beneficial effects on Diabetes
    Go to the and search for The ABC’s of the Mediterranean Diet.


      Hi Susan,

      Thank you so much for sharing that information with me. I’ve been interested in the Mediterranean Diet for a while now, both because of the health benefits and for the fresh, light nature of the food. (It might also have something to do with a longing to live in Italy.) I’m going to check it out once things become a little more sane at work – hopefully by the end of the month – and I’ll report out here with what I find.
