Guess who...

JUST GOT PAID?!
That's right, ME!
Now I have money to buy me some groceries
& pay my first parking ticket I've ever had. :(

(dumb SUU parking lots.)
In my defense, my RA at my apartment told me that they don't start ticketing
for not having a parking permit until the 2nd week of school ended.

Ya, got mine the 3rd day of school. blah.

This week I'm thankful for:
PAYCHECKS! :)

The Trick is...

"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts do not drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise.

Life is like an old time rail journey- delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."

-- Gordon B. Hinckley


I needed this quote today.
Gotta just keep chugging along...

Thankful Thinking

This week I am Thankful for:
MODERN MEDICINE
Why, you ask?
Because the whole situation with the swelling of my face is NOT over yet.
I thought I was in the clear, but no.
Yesterday I woke up with itchy hives all over my body.
The best my parents & aunt, (who is a nurse) can figure is that it is a delayed reaction to my antibiotics that I have been taking for my infection.
Get this: I took my last dose of them on MONDAY!
Weird I know, but they say that sometimes it takes a while for the reaction to show because it accumulates in you body.
So I am grateful for Modern Medicine that can make it go away.
Lets hope for good this time!
