-I have a sinus infection, again. It seems like I get at least 2-3 per year. What gives?? I'm a healthy person, take my vitamins, eat well, etc. I did, however, break my neti pot about a year ago and haven't replaced it for which I was scolded today by my doctor. So, new neti pot in one hand, antibiotics in the other, I'm out for blood. You're going DOWN, sinus infections. Assholes.
-My kid is a little man these days. A FB post of mine from a couple days ago:
This is the truth! What a little dude.
-We're doing something new for Thanksgiving this year...The Mister's aunt,(at whose house we usually stuff ourselves,) is going through a divorce so rather than invade her, we've rented 2 condos up in the mountains and are going for a ski/sled/snowshoe/eating adventure. Yay!! While I enjoy the traditional "everyone sit in the living room with unbuttoned pants" Thanksgiving, I'm not-so-secretly excited about this much more active one! Also, I found new (to me) back-country skis at the gear swap (they were a steal!) and can't wait to try them out. Double yay!!
|Gear swap skis! Also, our mail is here!|
Its good practice to think about what you're thankful for every day, no? I try to do that, I really do. But this time of year gives you an excuse to bore others with your gratitude. I'm especially thankful for:
-my health. Chronic sinus infections notwithstanding, I'm in the best physical shape I've ever been in. I love it that I can run, ski, snowshoe, hike...do whatever I want to do really and do it wholeheartedly. Doing stuff is fun...who knew!?
-my job. Its not the greatest. Its not my "dream." But you know what? It enables me to fulfill other dreams: feed, clothe, and otherwise take care of my family, travel (limited, but still, the occasional road trip is possible), afford entry fees for races, etc. I'm lucky to have a job and I know it.
-living in a beautiful place. Sure the winters are rough and I'm pretty sure I have at least a mild form of S.A.D. so living at 7200 feet above sea level in the Rockies might not be the wisest but fuck-it, its gorgeous here.
-of course, my little family. We rock, if I do say so myself.
|Also, we pose in front of rocks. Winning.|
