30 Days of Thanks #16

Tuesday, November 17, 2009
Yesterday was a crippity crappity day.

I couldn't sleep Sunday night.

I'm a mental mess sometimes. Is it Adult A.D.D.? Post traumatic stress? Chemical imbalance? Hormones? Something I ate? Vic's twitching?

It wasn't easy to think about my blessings yesterday. I was grump extreme.

Nothing seems right or good or clear when you have no sleep.

At the end of the day, if I had to pick one thing I was thankful for it would be this:


I already used friends as one of my 30 thanks? Oh, well, is there a rule that I can't use the same thing twice?

I didn't think so.

I'm so thankful for friends. AND family. (Ok, so that's two things)

DOCTOR friends (oh..yessss), patient friends, (not Doctor's patients), funny friends, generous friends.

Moms and sisters who let me vent and complain and whine-even though they've heard it a thousand times before.

Thank goodness for friends and family who put up with me.

That would include Vic. He may have uttered, "Ok, let's get you to bed. Obviously nothing I do or say is going to be right so let's just end this day asap."

And did Mr. Sandman make an appearance after my 9 p.m. sleeping pill consumption? (Followed by 2 melatonin, 2 magnesium, lavender lotion, lavender oil, and trauma life oil peppered into the oil diffuser) Umm....sort of. He was tardy. He showed up at TWO A.M. I'm either going to be admitted into a nut house or fall over dead from exhaustion.

My friends and family do so much for me. I wish they could sleep for me. That's one thing I have to do all on my own.

Let's make it three things:

And technically this falls under the "Friends" category. This was made by some friends of ours from L.A. Hilar.


  1. Do internet friends count? Loving these days of gratitude- even the craptacular ones.

  2. INTERNET FRIENDS TOTALLY COUNT! especially the beauties who design blogs for me.

  3. Insomnia is misery. I have felt a bit of that myself the last little bit and it's miserable!! Hope you are feeling better.

  4. um that video made me laugh out loud soooo loud and funny thing is. . . I am at the library. Hope you can envision that. hope it makes you smile. I don't think I can go to the library for a while now. love ya!

  5. if the lack of sleep causes you to dream up things that funny don't ever sleep again. that was/is the bessssst.

  6. are you thankful for mute friends?

  7. I found your blog through a friend and have been wanting to comment for a while but didn't know how to do it or what wonderful thing I should say to you. I think about you and your pain all the time. I have prayed and will continue to pray for you to endure this. You are a doll and your blog has got to be so helpful to so many people. You are very talented in so many ways. I pray for you and your family's recovery and that you may find and continue to find peace. And sleep. I love you as a sister in the gospel and through the blogging world and as mothers. Keep plugging along, you are a gift to the world. I am sending you well wishes.

  8. I love the girl in this movie. Her facial expressions are priceless.


  9. Loved the New Moon spoof!!! I Laughed until my tummy hurt.

  10. Seriously! I am laughing so hard right now :) I have read your blog so many times and I am always wrapped up with your writing--such a talent. And today, TODAY! I feel like I am sitting right next to you . . ."Ok, let's get you to bed. Obviously nothing I do or say is going to be right so let's just end this day asap." Followed by the sleeping pill consumption! Thank you for today!
