I'm grateful for the $25 Target gift card I got in the monthly drawing of tenants who paid rent early. It's the second time I won.

I'm thankful my Halloween value pack of cards, 4-pack of Burt's Bees lip balm, Target brand naproxen gel caps, and journal (a 50-cent composition book) came to less than my $25 gift card!

I'm thankful Gary took care of the adjustments for 2 accounts based on emails I got from the owners.

I'm thankful 2 other accounts were updated with reports and payments today, so I could release them from collections, leaving only 4 remaining accounts to work in my final 2 days.

I'm thankful I have the next 2 days off for appointments, and have plans to visit the Tukwila office after my eye exam tomorrow.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I'm thankful for all the expressions of support and appreciation and good wishes I got in response to an email to coworkers about leaving on 10/26.

I'm thankful the massage therapist I saw this week had openings next Wednesday also (the only day she works), so I can get another massage after my second filling repair.

I'm thankful that after going many months without a massage, I'm getting 2 close together--and spending my Equinox check to do it. Great way to celebrate the new season and the end of a *very* long job hunt!

I'm grateful for getting to pickleball much earlier today, and for the stress free practice my emoticon Cheryl and I enjoyed.

I'm grateful Cheryl's partner Teri joined us so I could take a breather after an hour of playing.

I'm grateful for my increased energy after taking that unexpected sick day on Thursday.

I'm grateful for my father's Autumn Equinox check in his last letter (which I discovered late in unopened mail emoticon ) both for being able to spend it and for his acknowledgement of my spiritual path.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I'm so grateful for Karen's call which reassured me I will get hired by the county, though we're not certain when that will happen.

I'm grateful the FedEx delivery lady caught me just as I was headed to the laundry room to give me my 4# of flavored coffee--that arrived early!

I'm grateful there was one free washer this morning, and a dryer when I needed it, since I began later than normal.

I'm grateful I got a call from my emoticon and pickleball buddy that she and her friend will be late, since they are coming from an intermediate clinic at another location.

I'm thankful all the laundry machines were available this morning.

I'm thankful for the cooler temps.

I'm thankful for all my pretty flowers on the balcony.

I'm thankful my routine of alternating productive and relaxing timer sessions works well for me.

I'm thankful I got my application submitted early, and have been able to enjoy this long weekend.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I'm thankful for conversations with staff before and during the meeting with Central Office folks.

I'm thankful I used my mini-break between sessions to run up several flights of stairs for a little cardio exercise, since I was missing my morning walk!

I'm thankful one of my accounts I was really annoyed with who ignored previous requests to file reports thanked me for my newest reminder, which mentioned pending legal action, and finally got his 3 late reports filed and paid.

I'm thankful after a long, semi-grueling application revision session tonight, I did a short and peppy Jessica Smith workout before dinner.

I'm immensely grateful to Mary for logging in and spinning for me while my internet service was interrupted, and enabling me to hit the 4-year mark on my login streak!!

I'm grateful my internet connection was back this morning.

I'm grateful for the cooler temps today!

I'm grateful to my old manager Doug for letting me know about the reference check for me!

I'm grateful Gary let us know that the new RA2 position coming open will be located in the Bellevue office, so I'm prepared, should I get offered that one and not the preferred Tukwila position.

I'm thankful for my fans and timers!

It's 6-Pack time again! And I'm grateful all 6 of us will be there this year. (My friend from grade school, Susan, who lives on Maui can't always make it, but she is coming this year!)

I'm grateful that Gold Beach temp (that's where we're staying this year) was 56 at 5:30 today when Tukwila was 87!

I'm grateful my in town Spark Friend Cheryl can watch Dora--and I won't pay her this time, since I'm going to watch their cats next year when they take vacation!

It may jump back to mid- to upper-80s soon. I'll just have to see. But I'm grateful that for now, the weather is pleasant, and we even had a little cooling rain.

I'm grateful that I was assured today that they will *not* schedule any interviews (if I'm being considered) that would conflict with my vacation.

I'm grateful that I've learned to check the addresses on new accounts first--and have been able to transfer a few in less than 5 minutes.

I'm grateful that I have a folder stuffed with kudos and positive testimonials.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I am *so* grateful for cooler temps!! I just unhooked the a/c that had been running 24/7 for several weeks. I have a fan blowing cool air in from outside--I'll do that the next couple days of low 70s, then will see how heat does with a week or more of low 80s.

After waiting more than 40 minutes for the afternoon bus, it was very full and I was standing through a couple Seattle stops. Then a middle aged Asian man got up and gave me his seat (I could tell I was overheated, and my face was probably getting kind of red), so I got to sit through the freeway portion of the commute. So thankful!

Grateful for ~

~ My Babystep Brigade Buddy Cynthia who often shares such genuine gratitude lists with her 3Bs! emoticon

~ The sight of the sun sparkling on the water at the waterfall park in the morning, and how I can see little rainbows when it's sunny

~The tickling kisses of the spray on my face in the afternoons at the waterfall park when there's a breeze

~ Watching the dance of the droplets of mist on afternoons with sun and a breeze--at the waterfall park

~ My portable a/c that has cooled the bedroom to a comfortable level!

I was surprised and thankful a fellow grabbed my rolling cart this morning and carried it up the stairs from the transit tunnel, since the escalator was out of commission. When I thanked him, he shrugged it off like it was no big deal, but short little me really appreciated it!

~ Yesterday I forgot to clip on my security badge and ran back up the stairs and knocked on the door, not sure if I could be heard--but Paul, the Audit supervisor, did and let me back in the locked door!

~ to be catching the earlier bus morning and afternoon

~ for the big Wellness golf umbrellas that keep me mostly dry when I walk in the rain

I'm thankful for

~ my new kitchen faucet--no more leaks!

~ how easy it was to unlock my door this evening after maintenance dealt with an extremely sticky deadbolt

~ these totally engrossing Soulwood novels

~ employers who do what they say they will (file reports and make payments in a timely way)

~ my foresight in taking my knit hat as well as my scarf--I wore both to work and for the first 2 breaks of the day!

I'm thankful that my morning routines are working well and I'm consistently catching my bus on time.

I'm thankful I'm getting to know other bus riders a little.

I'm thankful I could help a first-time light rail rider figure out where to catch it (a little way down from the bus stop where she was standing).

I'm thankful I had my fleece jacket, so kept warm enough on my walks, though I didn't need the gloves.

I'm thankful for the 2 yummy Chinese dishes I got last Friday for lunch that ended up giving me 4 full meals--the 3 at home added a bunch more veggies and a little meat.

I'm thankful for a nice interaction with a fellow sweeping the sidewalk on my morning break. There's a lot of homeless and a mission in the neighborhood, and he mentioned being in a program, so good for him. He also mentioned going to church Sunday, so he's taking positive action.

I'm thankful the promised warm temps finally arrived mid-afternoon!

I'm thankful

~ for good wishes of coworkers and lots of understanding/commiseration over willingness to leave over poor pay

~ for getting the same understanding from Kelly, one of the top Regional Managers, and for his sharing that Gary (the Collections supervisor) *really* likes having me working with his group

~ that the Office Manager (my new CS supervisor) was fine with my leaving early to adjust for not using all the leave I had requested for the interview

~ that by running, I managed to catch the 4:30 bus, since my usual is the 5:00 bus, and it would have been a ~15 minute wait for the 4:45.

~ that there's an espresso shop right next to the building where I had my interview, so I treated myself to a latte with cinnamon syrup after I was done.

Blessed Be, Amanda

~ The coffee grinder being fixed this time at Freddy's, and still a good price on a bag of espresso beans

~ The TJ's folks letting me trade a bottle of garlic-flavored olive oil (a favorite) for one without a broken cap (wouldn't open, wouldn't seal shut, just spun around in both directions)

~ My beautiful clear--and now vacuumed-- living room floor!

I'm thankful

~ that I made the early (8:04) bus up to Seattle; I made it across the street before everyone had boarded.

~ that another commuter showed me where to find the elevator up to the street at the Pioneer Square Station, since the escalator was out of order.

~ that I finished both 5-minute timed tests in time

~ that I finished my two essays before it was time for my interview

~ that I only waited a few minutes before my southbound bus arrived to take me home.

Grateful that there was no wait for laundry machine yesterday.

--for short lines at the stores today

--for getting a planner 75% off at BN in store

--for being able to use a 15% coupon on top of a 50% discount on the whole series of Quantum Leap at BN online

--for big savings in a hardcover kids book (The Lotterys Plus One that I mentioned in our reading thread) on the Walmart website, of all places, and they'll mail it directly to the birthday girl (her mom, actually) saving me duplicate shipping costs.

--My massage therapist is free on my birthday so I'll have a morning massage that day!

I'm feeling especially thankful for my cold weather gear--winter coat, neck gaiter, scarf, fuzzy gloves, thick knit headband (ear warmer), knit hat, thin leg warmers I wear on by arms (from wrist past my elbow to keep out drafts), plus my boots that I climb into and out of for each of my 3 walking breaks at work!

So do you live with other people, or just animals? For myself, it's me and my cat Dora emoticon

Grateful for

~ Bill's help (that's my manager) with my DJA application

~ short lines yesterday at the Costco gas pumps and at all the stores where I shopped

~ finding a waterproofing sealer for my boots ( which are starting to leave wet spots on the toes of my socks)

~ good food

~Ebonee (coworker) reminding me to count in my till this morning. (I had been pulled into a bizarre situation right after arriving--one of those "I've never heard of this in 10 years, and need to call another agency to try to figure it out" things.)

~ The light snow that fell on me on my final break had stopped by the time I left work and drove up the steep hill to the library

So grateful I was working in Seattle yesterday, where I had the opportunity to submit my application before the noon closing!

Grateful I communicated my interest in working for the county's Employee Health & Well-Being team, whether in the current open (program manager) position, or any other.

I grateful for 3 days off.

I'm grateful to my sister for checking the county job postings for me, and sharing likely possibilities. It really saves me time!

I'm grateful my manager encouraged me to apply for a Developmental Job Assignment with Collections--and had some preliminary discussions with Regional Management that are quite hopeful!

~ Managing to get my application submitted tonight, about 4 hours before the deadline. Broke up the work into many short sessions, since I just didn't' have a lot of energy.

I'm thankful my supervisor told me I could stop taking calls yesterday when my voice was pretty croaky, and I apologized to one caller for coughing in their ear.

I'm thankful for an extremely thoughtful coworker who asked if I had noticed she assigned me a new wage complaint. I hadn't--completely missed it sitting there in the assigned bin. It's not her responsibility to say anything, but I appreciated her bringing it to my attention, so I could get to work, since we have 3 days to enter them--and lost almost all of today!

I was thankful for cough syrup and hot tea today!

I'm especially grateful for my sweet and supportive sister who picked up some Freddy's items for me, then took me grocery shopping this afternoon. I had a bit more energy today, but might not have felt up to going out on my own. It was so nice to share an errand with someone!

I'm thankful that my nose is drying up. After finishing off 2 tissue boxes the last couple of days (& no, they weren't newly opened), it was a relief to rarely have to blow my nose. Mine didn't get rubbed raw this time around.

When I hit emotional overload today, I'm thankful for Cuddle Bear, my super-soft plush teddy who sits in the corner of the sofa. I hadn't needed to hug on him in a good long while. I was really glad he was right there for me today.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I'm thankful for my comfy bed and mattress.

I'm thankful for my warm and soft flannel sheets!

I'm thankful I made the early bus to Seattle and could settle in slowly.

I'm glad the rain cleared up and I didn't need boots or umbrella for any of my walks!

I'm thankful that although I forgot to set my alarm on Friday morning, I got to work on time.

I'm thankful for my hardcover books by Patricia Briggs, so I can reread them as often as I like, and they hold together well.

I'm thankful the washers and dryers were free this morning--no waiting.

I'm really thankful Safeway brought back my favorite frozen meal of theirs--Moroccan-style rice and lentils with chicken--I hadn't seen it for a year or 2! Yumm! emoticon

Again, glad to have someone else driving in the light rain, especially with a bunch of streets blocked off in Seattle and emergency vehicles with flashing lights, while I just sat and read my library book on negotiating.

Also appreciating the ability to get books and DVDs from the library--for entertainment, or in this case for career knowledge, without having to buy it, unless I want to keep it and return often.

Grateful for Jessica Smith's stretching routine that may help keep the leg cramps away.

Grateful for my Patricia Briggs hardcovers that I can read as often as I like!

I'm beautiful and capable of being the best me I can,
And I love myself just the way I am."

[by Jai Josefs in his amazing song I Love Myself the Way I Am]

Co-leader of the Babysteps Brigade (BBs), A Gathering of Goddesses (GGs), Survivors of Abuse (SAssies) teams.
