OK so maybe I was never graceful, but no one, I say NO ONE can say I was never overly self-confident…wait. What? Well, anyway…
I haven’t written a TToT in some time, y’know like a real one? I think it’s pretty well known I’ve been out of my element physically ( which says a lot as my element is pretty much good old #82Pb (plumbum, lead) from the neck down on most days. (Right there. See that? That is what I remember from years of Chemistry and Physics in high school and college.Oh, and is Oxygen #8?)
Anyway, my lack of a TToT is on me. I have had lots to be grateful for it’s just been clouded and I have been a serious crank. Don’t justify it, really C.R.A.N.K. and I’m grateful for every little lift of the cloud.
See what I did there? got #1 in and I still got to complain just a little bit. NICE.
Im gonna make this a quick one and then I want to do an unsticking update some time late when I post the SSS cue of the week which I will place as my second TToT. It has a bit of a following and is really fun to read and host. I am grateful for the notes and kind comments about how much people are enjoying it. I am most grateful that it’s founder Josie of the formerly TWO SHOES came up with the idea and allowed me to bring it back when I missed it so much. Hey, yknow what? I think that makes four! But, who’s counting?
Y’know every week in my TToT I used to be grateful for this little bugger and know that I am still SO grateful for my time with him. He taught me so much about patience and trust. Well , Joulie is here now and after much angst on my part (unfairly as her only sin was she was not Skip), she has definitely earned a place in my heart. So without further ado I don’t know if you know this but I have this little dog named Joulie? I like her a whole lot and am pretty grateful for her patience with me during this recuperation, and with my overall pain-in-the-buttishness. She is a bit stuck in frozen pirate face from a broken jaw she sustained at the hands of some idiot human, she is getting a bit too chubby as I haven’t been able to walk as far with her as we were walking. We are slowly trying to increase my distance, but in the meantime if ya feel like a walk and you’re in the neighborhood…
Today some friends are moving stuff into my new office. There’s a couple grats. I actually had to cancel three of them as I had too many volunteers. There’s a grat. If someone said “Hey, thanks anyway, but y’know how you were gonna help lift heavy furniture on Saturday, while I stood around and watched or limped around and told ya what to do? You don’t need to now.” I would say “YAHOO!” as I was running in the other direction. I had to convince all three NOT to waste their time! There’s a grat. Great friends. I always say that but really…. GREAT FRIENDS! That includes internet friends who have called, texted, IM’d, sent cards and well wishes, came back to a blog that has been empty of most everything except SSS cues for some time…all of you… GREAT FRIENDS! Thank you!
SO I was incapacitated over the holidays, which depending upon how dysfunctional your family is, is not always a negative. I’m not saying anything about mine, but man we get together at Christmas and it’s a madhouse… mostly just because of the numbers. My parents had a lot of kids, who went on and had a lot of kids, who are now old enough to be having kids…that’s a lot of people! And most bring other strays with them… often we are looking at numbering in the thirties and forties. SO a peaceful hospital room… don’t cry for me… I was in touch via skype and had a great time. I mention this because I still have a few Christmas gifts I haven’t broken into. Today I get to open my new set of tools. I got this amazing set of tools for Christmas. I can’t even lift the box! It’s gonna just be fun to see someone else use them to put together some furniture today.
Ok, I gotta go, but have a great day and I will see you soon with an SSS cue… if ya have any suggestions feel free to leave them in comments. I am always looking for a fun cue word. Thanks, Z/I and J
