Thankfulness Round 2

Remember last week when I said "I'm going to think about trying to do a thankful post daily" ?

Well, I thought about it!And that is as far as I got.....

Can I just say that I'm really sick of packing. Every day I've had off for the past 1 1/2 weeks, I've spent the entire day packing boxes, taking them to the house, unloading them and placing items in appropriate places, take empty boxes back to the old house, repeat.

Also, life has been a tad chaotic lately. We are living between 2 homes. So when one says "Do you know where my ______ is?"...I now just laugh.

But the official "moving day" will be here this weekend! I am SO excited!

Okay, now to thankfulness.....

Today I am blessing my thankfulness on wellness. By wellness I mean a variety of things.

1) I am thankful that we both have our health. It is sometimes easy to forget how truly blessed one is to have their health (mental & physical)

2) I am thankful that we are able to provide food to the table to live a "well life". Sometimes it's really easy to take for granted those little "neccessities" in life.

3) I am thankful for me & and my husbands shared love of camping, hiking, running, biking, you name it. I don't think it would be as easy to get out & exercise if I lived with someone who didn't enjoy these things.

4) (although I am not crazy about our summers) I am very thankful for Tucson's lack of winter. I am able to spend time outdoors 365 days out of the year. Our winter is 50-70's during the day, 30's-40's @ night from about November to mid March. Pretty awesome! Fresh air makes you well!

I feel your pain on the packing front... It is not fun and it is overwhelming. I was so glad to have it behind me. And now i never want to move again. But unless I buy this place, I will have to... I am not going to think about that now, though!

I am very thankful for my health as well! It is so important and something we can take for granted. Although I have to say, I have not been very healthy lately... I jus tstarted my 4th round of antibiotics. This has GOT to take care of my sinus infection for once and for all!

I feel for you, especially because you have moved so freqeuntly in the past years, so I'm happy this will be more permanent for you! I'm also happy that the temps have cooled down for you and you can enjoy the outdoor more! You have a very narrow window for camping, though, don't you? But you did get a few trips in this past year! Happy moving, you two!
