..Thankful


Baby Alba
Holiday fluffer-nugget

The last couple of weeks have been a bit challenging for me to say the least.  There are things happening on all fronts on my life that are stressful and mostly out of my control, which I admit is hard for me to deal with as I very much like to be in control.  To make this week extra crappy my car was towed and ticketed for some sticker I needed to update which set me back roughly 800 bucks (which totally bums be out right before Christmas shopping), and I forgot my metro card this morning so I had to go put money in the machine and was late to work because I missed the train I was trying to catch. Grr. Grr. Grr.  Oh and GRRR!

Since this funk that I have been in is making me withdrawn and grumpy which is not very characteristic of me I decided I should make a list of things that make me happy/I am thankful for.  I know I'm late on this since everyone else did this at Thanksgiving but hey, better late than never, right?  I also made an AWESOME Christmas season bucket list that will come at a later date (instant mood booster).
  1. Family (especially siblings).  Although you are far away (and sometimes drive me crazy) I love you.
  2. My health (although I really need to take this more seriously starting after the holidays and get my butt to the gym).
  3. My DC family, aka having so many truly wonderful lifelong friends, a blessing which I have recently realized not everyone has. 
  4. Mike, who loves me.
  5. My little (or not so little) kitty cat, Ella, who makes me smile every day.
  6. Alba for making Mike smile every day.
  7. Having a job, this I feel thankful for more and more each week.
  8. My little blog for being my outlet for creativity that keeps me sane and balanced.
  9. Chocolate, cheese, & avocados.
  10. Hair straighteners (Amen).
Happy humpday,

Erin

    Hope things turn around and soon!
