Days 81-90

Let’s try this again!

Day 81 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I’m grateful for lazy days. And today was definitely a very lazy day for me. Tomorrow I have to work, which is why I’m getting this in so much earlier than usual. 

I didn’t even write or think about writing. I did some micro organizing. By micro, I mean just that LOL. Hey, it’s a lazy day for me! 🙂



Day 82 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

Even though today was a crazy day, I’m still grateful for crazy days. 

I’m grateful work gets me out of my comfort zone. It gets me out of my house. I would stay home if it weren’t for work and shopping for groceries. Food…what’s that all about anyway? 😉

Now I just have to learn how to interact with coworkers better. 



Day 83 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

It’s days like these I’m actually grateful to be a techno geek. Usually, I would hide my head in shame…Well, not in shame but rather I just say nothing because when I try to explain to someone why their computers don’t work…eh, I might as well be speaking Elvish.

I thought today’s gratuity challenge would be brought to you by Life Hacks. For the most part, I do try them out, and I do happen to find them accurate.

I’m grateful for technology that provides me iinformation at my fingertips.



Day 84 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I am grateful I got 5 miles in today. I never thought 90 minutes of walking adds up to 5 miles. Also, when I originally got the FitBit, it said 10,000 miles was equivalent to 5 miles. But on my app, it says I only went 4 miles. So, I upped my steps, and by the time I got to 12,000, I got my 5 miles in.

In any case, I’m grateful I challenged myself. Now I just need to keep challenging myself.


Day 85 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Friday, 9/23/16.

Without going into detail, I’m grateful for laughable moments. I’m grateful for moments that make your work day go by a bit faster. I’m grateful for working. And speaking of work, I have to go to bed to get up in the morning. I’m grateful for wonderful friends that read my posts and listen to my rants.

Good night! 🙂


Day 86 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I am grateful for my new phone. For one, I can save pictures on it. Another thing is my camera is designed to make your features look different. I always wondered what I would look like with big eyes. Now I know! LOL.

I am grateful for a good job, and meeting good friends along the way.  I’m always grateful for new beginnings. And mostly, I’m grateful for sleep! Which is what I’m about to do.

9/24/16, Saturday.


Day 87 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I’m grateful I didn’t see a white owl as those are bad omens. This little fella looked right at me. I think he wanted his picture taken.

The outfit you see me wearing is sleeveless. I won’t wear sleeveless anymore, and it just so happens sleeveless is not acceptable anyway at my job. I threw a short sleeved shirt underneath, and it turned out well, IMO.

I am grateful I can be creative.

DJ 9/25/16, Sunday.


Day 88 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I’m grateful for sad moments. It means I can handle whatever comes my way. It definitely shows strength.


Day 89 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I am grateful for the invention of the DVR. I can escape reality with the click of a button. I am trying to catch up on my shows.


Day 90 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I had to create a two parter because I couldn’t get all six pics to fit right in one grid.

So here it is… I’m grateful I made it to day 90! I’m doing really good. I’m grateful today was a good day. I’m also grateful I got some exercise in and got my 10,000 steps in before 8 tonight. 

It’s pretty cool. Now if only I can get fb to show everyone my posts in a timely fashion. Well, two out of three ain’t bad.





Days 75-80

I’m going to try to put 5 days worth of entries in one blog…Let’s see if this works…

It’s already acting up…

Day 75 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Over the weekend something strange happened, and so I went to the source of the mouth to find out the truth. I went about it in a positive way and got a positive result.

Normally when I confront someone in a positive way, they usually turn around and say I’m being negative. I can’t tell you how awful it makes me feel when I feel like no one is listening.

I grow frustrated and then the other person asks me why I’m acting the way I am. It’s because I’m frustrated and no one is listening.

All I can say is I am so grateful I’m in a more positive atmosphere. I’m grateful for those that finally hear me. It feels nice! 🙂


9/13/16, Tuesday


Day 76 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Wednesday, September 14th, 2016.

I’m grateful for having a day off. I got nothing really done. Well, that’s a lie. I went to the doctor, filled up on gas, and got an oil change. I went home for a bit, and went out to shop for work clothes. I found a cute skirt and top.

I’ve decided to no longer wear slacks at my new job. I like skirts, but I am not crazy about dresses. Dresses are too restricting. It’s hard to explain. I never liked tight clothing. It could very well be a claustrophobic thing???

I went to the store after to get some groceries. I didn’t get much organizing done today, but I did manage to pay the bills! 🙂

Tomorrow before my job, I plan on doing some volunteer work. I’m grateful for busy days. 


Day 77 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I’m grateful for always learning new things about myself.

I’ve always known I grow attached to things and people when I should just let go.

I have stayed in a blogging group that really doesn’t want me there. I have stayed at jobs even when they don’t want me. And most importantly I have tried to keep in touch with people that don’t want to keep in touch.

It’s time to learn how to detach. I’ve done this before, I think I can do it again.

Day 78 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I’m grateful for auto type on here. It makes typing much faster for me.

I’m grateful for mew clothes as it makes me happy when I get to wear something new.

I’m grateful for time flying by when I’m at work.

I’m grateful for good friends that always comment and don’t mind my rants or the things I post.

I’m grateful for my husband and a house to live in.

Day 79 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

As you can see, I have no theme for Saturday 9/17/16. I woke up early but late. I had a slow start because I went to bed at 2 in the morning the day before. I get out of work at 11 and I’m home by 11:30.

I’m grateful for late shift nights. I’m grateful for being able to sleep in. 

That’s all I have for today. I’ll try to come up with more things to be grateful for tomorrow.


Day 80

Day 80 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I’m grateful for making it another 10 days on this challenge. I’m on day 80! Whoo hoo!

Earlier, I was going to quit the blogging group all together. I was gonna quit, but there are still a few that like my writing. So I think I’ll stick with it. I just need to go about my mind differently. 

I’m grateful I can train my mind to think on a more positive level. Every day is a new, learning day.


Day 74

Day 74 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

As you know, I had a rough go in cyberspace last night, but I had a friend help me get through it.

I’m truly grateful for my friend, Tiki. We may be miles apart, but I can always rely on her. 

I’m also grateful for my husband who is always making me laugh. I feel better afterwards.

I’m grateful for good people in my life! 🙂

Day 73

Day 73 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I’m grateful it’s day 73. And I am grateful for changes.

Earlier today, I wrote this story as part of the prompts. I worked really hard on it and I thought I was being clever. That’s my problem. I was thinking. 

Well someone made a comment on it, and with comments like that, usually more are to follow because you’re often looking at the comments in order to find something to say.

I stopped writing my chapter stories. And I made this story 100 words precisely. They call it a drabble.

So I’m thinking I’m a shitty writer and I’ll never amount to anything writing wise in this world.

I will be moving away from Blogophilia. Not that I was popular on there to begin with. I’m grateful for new beginnings.

I’m a little sad right now. I’m hoping sleep will help.


Day 72

9-10-16, Saturday.

Day 72 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Wow I can’t believe I’m up past 3:30. I had every intention of going to bed right after work. I guess if I worked 9 to 5, I’d have been in bed a long time ago. 2:30 to 11:00 is my 9 to 5. Most 9 to 5-ers go to bed around 9-ish, so 3:30-4:00 would be my 9 to 5 bedtime. I’m done rambling.

I’m grateful to go home, I’m grateful for my new job, I’m grateful for hope, and I’m grateful to those that constantly support me no matter what. 🙂

Day 71

Day 71 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Friday, September 9th, 2016

I had a bit of a busy day at my first job, which is probably why I was able to get in 6,000 steps for the day. And then I went to my full time job. It was slow, but I’m grateful for quiet moments.

Something hit me during the first portion of my old job. About three co workers told me that so and so mentioned I had gotten a job. It sadly pains me that I can never trust them ever again.

I was also told I shouldn’t say anything as it would look bad against me. It really wouldn’t as I only say what I’m thinking and I never say anything to anyone if I don’t want anyone to know. Rumors are awful. And so I’m grateful for another eye opening moment.

Maybe after I finish this project, I can create a quietly grateful project. It will be learning how to keep quiet no matter how mad you get, and still talking about what you’re grateful for.

Well, I’m fading so, goodnight! 🙂

Day 70

Day 70 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

First, let me say how grateful I am for making it another 10 days on this challenge journey. I’m surprising myself in so many ways considering I never seem to stick with anything for too long.

Second, I cannot express enough how much I am grateful for my fitbit! It is challenging me to get up and move around more. Being an artist, you’re practically sitting in your office all day. I’m grateful I have a job to where I can move around, and another job to where I can move around on my breaks.

Third, I made it to 10,000 steps! A big WHOO HOO there!

And last, tonight at work at the Y, it wasn’t so bad, despite the fact I was cleaning. It was a pretty fast time. And it helped me to get in my steps! 🙂
