Take Time Tuesday

After the nasty week I had, I couldn't wait for Take Time Tuesday this week. I needed perspective like whoa. Head on over to Live Life Half Full for more gratitude, or to link up.

Live Half Full
This week, I'm grateful for:

1. Insurance and a good dentist. Even though I *hate* dental work, when I cracked a molar last week, in the midst of the pain and aggravation, I was really grateful that I had a kind, compassionate dentist who had an opening in his schedule just hours after I called. And even though I'm going to have to take out a second mortgage for my new oral accessory, I'm grateful I have insurance to cover at least part of it. Also grateful for painkillers and Novacaine.

2. Old friends ... and new. This weekend, despite having a celiac flare-up, I got to spend some time with amazing people. From a low-key dinner at my house to a brunch with some *new* gluten-free homies (like the fabulous Betsy) to our annual Wrestlemania party with the boys, it was nice to be surrounded by such great folks.

 3. Sunshine. It seems way trite, but the springy weather we've been having has done wonders for lifting me out of my recent blahs. You can even see sprouts sticking up out of the ground. Let the happies commence.

4. Game of Thrones. My inner nerd has been waiting for this since the last season ended. I *finally* finished book 5 of the series last fall, and I'm having a really hard time not just busting out with spoilers while Luke and I are watching. Maybe I should just keep stuffing my face with cookies to make sure.


  1. Thanks again for the invite, I had a great time!

  2. What an adorable picture of you and Kelly! I hope the rest of your week is better!!!

  3. Happy Tuesday! Insurance & sunshine are more than worthy things to be thankful for!

  4. How cute are you two? It was so nice to meet both of you! As I was driving home I realized we should have gotten a group picture. Oh well! At another meetup. See you again soon!
