Thankful Thursday May 7, 2009 (Odd Day)

They called it "odd day", but it has not been one for me today except with dr's offices and pharmacies. Sorry I have been away, but now I've had a bladder infection following my touch of bronchitis and had to go to the bladder dr on Tuesday. I figure all the coughing contributed to the infection. It caused me a great deal of nauseau this time which I was NOT thankful for or the run-around I had with dr's offices & pharmacies today. It wore me slap out!

I am thankful for the good meal we had at Cheddar's on Saturday evening. I am thankful I created 3 new pieces of art last Saturday night, one right after the other and totally amazed myself. I stayed up too late and had to take a nap Sunday evening.

I've had another artistic idea for awhile... and worked on it last night. Although I was not nearly halfway finished, I called my son to come look at it. He just went, "Wow!" so I know I did good. It may just be a matt only I will sell unless I do another idea I had for the inside part. I told Don, "I can paint!" I mostly got the watercolor effect I was aiming for so that was a good thing. I am thankful for my ideas. May they continue to keep coming...

I am thankful my coughing has FINALLY ceased. I am off those meds now & haven't had to use inhalers.

I am thankful for the good picture I took of Rhett on Saturday. It is his spring photo since I do not order his school pictures sight unseen, knowing I can take far better ones of him. This photo will be Mother's Day presents this year plus I saved money! Always a good thing.

I am thankful Don had jury duty three days this week so that will be extra income for him. I am so very thankful for him because he has three sides to my set up for the art show complete. I am getting the tent from friends at church saving me even more money.

I am thankful we got a good deal of coupons this week due to employee appreciation week at my work. I also got a token trophy which I have won before and I only got it this time because it was my turn to receive it. It is no big deal yet I got cold coffee in the office from being out sick & getting the award. The secretary was not answering the phone & I still did not feel up to par. So I started dropping things on purpose so she would have to answer the phone. I also got a gift card for Red Lobster so I can take mom there for Mother's Day.

I am most thankful for my supportive friends who have encouraged me and will show up for the art show. I value their opinions and input very much. They have been a great help. I am also borrowing back art I have given away to display but it will be returned.

I ordered my business cards and they should be here today! I can hardly wait! It just seems like all the tiny little pieces are falling into place. It is amazing and I am so thankful for it all.

My Aunt Betty, Uncle Frank's wife, is in the rehab hospital with a broken hip. She had polio in that hip as a child and she cannot be on it for 8 weeks. Thanks in advance for the prayers on her behalf. Please keep me in your prayers about my upcoming art show and that it will be a success.
