I have been doing a lot of complaining this week, so I really need to take a minute or two and look at being grateful.....
This new water bottle
I've been having issues lately with water bottles and I think this one is a keeper. See that sippie straw there? Me likey. Me won't spilly.
The Shark handed out prizes one day in class and look who came out the winner? The picture doesn't do it justice, but I LOVE it! I look almost as glamorous as Vanessa. Almost. Okay, not even close, but I can dream can't I?
Thank you Angel Shark.....
Work BFF's who take the pager so I can go get some miles in on my bike. I wish I had a picture of the EG, but link over to her blog and leave a comment telling her to post more. She is hysterical and needs to get all her Evil Geniusing down in writing!
This bad boy.
The pager. Yes, I am so very thankful that I GET to be on call this week. Get pages all day long from users who forgot how to do their jobs or make mistakes and can't figure out how to fix them. Who use their coworkers credit card to make a copayment instead of for buying their lunch and then can't reverse it all. Who call every damn day with the same issue that I have to keep telling them isn't a system problem at all and would they please work with ______ but still keep paging me. For the big fat paycheck that comes after my week, and the golden opportunities it affords me to stretch myself, learn more about my software and keep in touch with the end users.
I despise, hate, abhor, the pager. There is no big fat paycheck. Monday night will not get here soon enough for me. BUT! I am thankful for my job, and everything else that goes with it. I'm just whining for a minute.
For this sign of reminder.
I find it hysterical that employees of a healthcare organization need such a prompting. Really?! Wash.after.every.pee.people. I am thankful for the good lesson of hygiene I learned as a child. Well done Mom!
And finally, in all seriousness. My Splenda.
Today's is his parent's wedding anniversary. His Dad has been gone now for several years and tonight he is taking his sweet Mom out for dinner. To The Roof no less. She done did a good job raisin that boy! She's lucky, and I am thankful! Remember, Tuffy, The Roof when graduating Seminary......(said in my best sing-song bribery voice)
What are you thankful for today?
