Happy Days Are Here Again!

This week has been like a breath of fresh air, especially after feeling as if I had been holding my breath for the past four years. How could you not find thankfuls when you feel that way? Here are my Ten Things of Thankful:

1. Joe Biden is in da house!

2. We have the first woman vice president in over 240 years as a nation. That she is also a woman of color is icing on the cake. Or even a whole, new, beautiful cake.

3. The women at the inauguration were so classy! The clothes! The coats! They were lovely!

4. Bernie Sanders. On a personal level, he's a little intense for my liking, but the mittens! The memes! The levity on social media!

5. Still no covid vaccines available in the state, BUT the university where I work is trying to get it and when they do, we will be vaccinated. Hooray!

6. Diet Dr. Thunder will do when Diet Dr Pepper is ridiculously expensive. That it starts to taste like cough syrup after awhile is a small price to pay when it's only 87 cents for a 2 liter bottle and the stores want to charge nearly $2 for the real McCoy.

7. It was a short work week. Didn't seem like it at the time, but I will appreciate it more this week when it's back to five days IN A ROW of work (cruel and unusual punishment, that five day week).

8. I found an outfit to wear to my son's wedding! It wasn't easy, since I didn't want my arms, shoulders, legs, or feet to show, but I finally found something, and no, it's not a tarp. My only real worry about it is it matches my hair, and I'm afraid I'm going to look like a welding rod being silver literally from head to toe....

9. My daughter is five for five on law school applications and acceptances. Praying for the financial aid offers to roll in now.

10. THE CHIEFS ARE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL AGAINNNNNN!!! My mama would be so pleased! I hope she has a good seat for the game in Heaven, along with a Pepsi and plenty of Rotel dip and chips!

What are your thankfuls this week? Link them up, below! We'd love to have you join us!

  1. So many great thankfuls, Dyanne.
    What exciting times with your daughter being accepted at five law schools and your son's impending wedding! Loved your description of your dress for the wedding. :-)
    Go Chiefs!
    I'll pass on Dr Thunder or anything else that has a similar taste to Dr Pepper. I think my body came without the "I like the Dr Pepper taste" gene. HaHa

    1. Thanks, Pat! It really was a nice week! Well, except for the Dr. Thunder fiasco. I agree - you either love Dr Pepper or you hate it.

    1. It sure has! You know it's a good week when you can come up with dozens of thankfuls for the TToT post!

  3. Now I want rotel dip and chips! Great week! I'm sure you'll rock that outfit!

    1. My family has always just called it "hot dip". Covers the temperature and the spiciness! It's a staple for watching Chiefs games!
      Don't tell my future daughter in law, but I'm planning to wear gray Chuck Taylor's with my outfit - I will be the only one with comfortable shoes on!
