    The challenge is to post five good things that you are grateful for once every day.  If bad things happened you must post them in terms of the good that came out of them.

    I will start:

    1. After driving an hour to fieldwork today I got there to find out the power was off.  I was so happy though that it wasn't closed!  The power went back on around 9:20 and it meant that I drove an hour to fieldwork with good reason.  I also won't have to make it up.  YEA!

    2. I am home.  Home is so nice after 3 hours driving to fieldwork and back and to college and back.  Thank you for a safe, warm, dry home.

    3. My physics test is done.

    4. My last second COBRA payment means that express scripts actually kept my account connected for the month!  amazing!

    5. I found my computer memory last night.  if my laptop has to go in for warranty repairs (it has been being very squirrelly) I don't have to worry about loosing the memory that i bought for it as an upgrade.

    1 -Well, let's start with a quite positive beginning : I woke up alive ! How more positive than that does it get
    2 - I had breakfast with friends and didn't eat like a pig. They did, though !
    3 -Went to the library, got some books, music, movies, eyeballed a couple of good looking women, etc...It's all good !
    4 - Had to do at least one good deed today so I helped a friend replace some electric gizmo that went bad. Used all the bad words I know in 3 different languages but eventually succeeded. She cooked me dinner
    5 - Looks like with all that, I forgot to work today, so tomorrow will be double shift, but that's another day

      Having a meal fairy cook for you is always wonderful!

      Thanks for joining in.  I have found that committing to this near daily can really change your life outlook.  I hope it brings joy to you!

      Raven is a dog I am guessing?  That is cool Raven can join at work!

    High 5 for today:

    1. The fog was sooooooo much better driving to work today
    2. I got an A on my physics tests - take that teacher who tests us on things we never learned in class!
    3. For a first try, my guided reading group went very well.
    4. I don't mind driving 1 hour to work in the morning.  I wish I were home earlier in the evenings, but if I weren't working and going to school on top of fieldwork I would be home earlier.  This may help me find work later.
    5. I get to go to bed soon as I quite being online.  I don't HAVE to have stuff done for tomorrow like I did last night.
