Re: Part II. Today I am grateful for:

I swear every other day something happens or some memory comes upon me that makes me grateful for my new setting.

It might be the experiences that I have, my adorable new students, or my awesome admin as mentioned above. Or I might remember some frustrating thing that used to happen at my old place and go "GOD I'm so glad I don't have to deal with that anymore!!"

But right now!! it's that my boyfriend (who is majorly obsessed with birds and is trying to turn me into a birder, with mild success, I really like being able to ID local birds but I'm not super into driving hither and thither to find rare ones.) My boyfriend got me a birdfeeder for my birthday. I was getting really excited about seeing nuthatches and woodpeckers in our backyard (Oh! We have a backyard! Another awesome thing we didn't have in the city). And he said oh you would really like having a feeder...

Anyways we hung up the thing a couple days ago and it has been discovered. I'M SO ENTERTAINED. I spread out a bunch of seed on the ground too for the birds that don't like going to a feeder, lots of little junkos crawling around. But that attracted the first FAT squirrel who I just had to scare off. Lol he was like WHOA what is the deal with this human!!!

Thus far this morning we've had a ton of chickadees of course, junkos crawling around in the seed on the ground, two white breasted nuthatches (I LOVE nuthatches they're soo cute!!) two goldfinches who like to sit in the tray and squabble at everyone else who tries to come by, a super pretty carolina wren, a downey woodpecker also came by to try to get in but he's a little too big (LOVE woodpeckers too).

I wanted to put up a feeder at our old place but bf felt it would have been overrun with squirrels. It's so neat all the different kinds of birds we get here!

Re: Part II. Today I am grateful for:

Today told everyone at work - that's a lot - about my ADHD - and the reactions were so reassuring. Suddenly people understood my apparent disobedient, eccentric or careless behaviour. Conflicts between my colleague and me resolved as well.

That I'm grateful for. Work in a large cinema btw

Re: Part II. Today I am grateful for:

New perspective. Once accepting groups are not my thing - no more expecting of myself - once accepting being a third wheel (difficult) - a lot easier - once remembering this is just a job, without social obligations, just being professional and mostly temporary anyway - talking became easier. Soon my anxiety numbed down.

And for this forum - a whole different attitude. Now anyways.

Came back last day work - 1 AM roomies are drinking Vodka with Red Bull, preparing weed (not my thing) and having a nice tune on the laptop. Needless to say - I was happy ... that's the way I wanna come home ( every once in a while )

It is only 2 below instead of the 18 below zero predicted. And the plows eliminated the drowningly deep drifts.

Fat Old Kitty, aka FOK really dug the chicken I peeled off the bone for him.

Tracking info finally indicating my brain machine is on the truck for delivery. It feels like I've ventured off to see the wizard, quite a few times, actually, and I'm finally gettin' my brain. Diggin' me some scarecrow vibes today. Starts singing, "If I only had a brain.....", in eager anticipation.............

Re: Part II. Today I am grateful for:

Scheduled appointment with new therapist for next Tuesday. I'm actually kind of excited to meet her, she seemed really energetic on the phone lol.
She also was good about calling back and making sure I had an appointment scheduled, seemed like she wanted to get me in as soon as possible and left a message, after her first message went unanswered, saying she was scheduling me on Tuesday at 3 lol, and I should call to tell her if that was ok. Well anyways made it easy for me!

Re: Part II. Today I am grateful for:

Yah, I thoroughly vacuumed and did my kitchen and bathroom floors and it was just lovely out today. Sunny and 40. I walked up and down Main, window shopped, shopped inside and had lunch, fantastic Cobb salad, and I'm home. LOL is relatively content, BOK is definitely content and I'm ready to soak up some glorious moon and killer constellations in the sky tonight on my balcony.

Things are going well.
