As I post this, I'm on the bus en route to the State Track Meet in Laurel, MT! I'm pretty excited about the meet. State is always a good time, but most importantly, it's just so cool to see our athletes perform at their best. I'm sure I'll have more to say about the meet next week after it's all over. Let's get on to the real heart of the matter of today's post: Furniture.
This week, I'm thankful for furniture. Well, furniture, my dog, and my husband, to be more precise! Yes, it's a pretty fluffy Thankful Thursday post this time. BUT that doesn't mean it's not sincere!
If you've been following along on the blog recently, you know that I was sick with some sort of throat infection that greatly resembled strep. I hate being sick. Doesn't everyone? But while I was sick, I kept coming back to three things that I felt extra thankful for: My BED, my DOG, and my Husband! Let's learn more!
Recently, Jeff and I took advantage of some sales and purchased a new bed and mattress. I was so thankful for such a comfy place to lie while I was sick. Seriously, one day I slept in until 9, then napped from 10-12:30, took another nap from 1-5, then went to bed at 9:30. That's a whole lotta sleeping and I was so, so glad for the best ever new bed to rest in!
Here's a photo from the furniture store website:
We are a little tight for space, so it was also really great to use the storage in the bed and eliminate a dresser in our bedroom. Mostly, I'm just thankful for a great place to sleep...
...and cuddle My Dog!
I was also pretty thankful for my dog while I was feeling under the weather. This dog, you guys! He is the sweetest dog. Pretty high level of empathy. It's like he knew I was sick and couldn't take him for so many walks or runs. He didn't get hyper and tear around the house. What he did was give me extra snuggles and loves! Woman's best friend, for sure! Harvey also loves the new bed...
|Seriously- how many legs does this dog have?!|
Lastly, and most importantly, I'm so, so thankful for Jeff!
While I wasn't feeling well, Jeff picked up the slack around the house and also did my end of some of the dog chores. He made me chicken noodle soup one day, too. Jeff was pretty encouraging and helpful all around, and I really appreciated the extra attention. He's always pretty fantastic, but he stepped up his game while I wasn't feeling good. Thanks, Hon! :)
Now that's it's been a little over a week since I first started feeling ill, I"m now feeling much, much better. Just wanted to say a simple thanks for some things that may not seem like much but are pretty awesome this week. I'm looking forward to a great weekend of State Track and also to getting back into some running and exercise.
What are you thankful for this week?
What helps you feel better when you're sick?
