Thankful Thursday

There are some weeks when you’re in a crummy mood and you dwell too much on negative things when there are so many positive things that surround you. This, unfortunately, has been one of those weeks. I’m realizing it’s hard to stay irritated and negative when you start thinking positively. This will be a good weekly exercise for me and you should try it too.

Free movie passes!

movies

Every now and I then I get free passes to movies and the majority of the time I’m too lazy to drive an hour to Louisville to see the movie or I have other obligations. Cory and I were both interested in seeing “This is the End” so I e-mailed him as soon as I got the movie passes. It was entertaining but I think both of us would’ve been a little bit disappointed if we had paid for it.

Family Time!

I haven’t been able to spend a lot of time with my sister and nieces lately and I got to see them a few times this past week. I helped my sister clean and organize some parts of her house. We cleaned a room and then this happened:

yay shredded paper!

I also got these cute photos of my niece the other night when she was down:

Good Doctors

Despite not having insurance, I’m very blessed to have great doctors. I had to go in this morning to get a routine checkup on my thyroid. Unfortunately, it is now worse than it was when I was first diagnosed. When I was diagnosed in November my TSH levels were about 9.6, February it was ~4.3, and today it was 9.980. Not good at all but I’m glad that’s the reason why I’ve wanted to sleep all of the time and haven’t felt like getting out of bed in the mornings. In the back of my mind, I knew I wasn’t being lazy but it’s nice to get reassurance from a Doctor that I’m not lazy and it’s to be expected when my TSH levels are this low. She upped my dosage and hopefully in three months when I go back it’ll be better.

Instagram

Why am I thankful for Instagram? If I could only keep one social media profile it would be instagram. I love instagram a lot. It’s a fun way for me to get creative with photos and it’s almost like a daily diary in picture form. I hit 1000 photos yesterday and it was exciting for some reason. Here are a couple of my favorites from this week:
