Thankful Thursday

healingI have been in pain since February when I tripped and bent a pin in my right great toe, which had been there for more than 20 years. I am super thankful I was able to have surgery yesterday to have that pin replaced with two staples and a screw! Now the several weeks of healing begins. Woohoo!

I actually forgot one of my thankfuls last week, but it is still appropriate this week. My favorite television program, The Amazing Race, began a new season last Wednesday night, which means episode two was on last night.

The cycling road race, Vuelta a España, began Tuesday and runs through November 8. So, I have something interesting to watch on the TV everyday while sitting on my heinie with my leg up.

Sawyer, as well as Dad Tom and I are thankful his last three seizures have each been an entire week apart. Sure, he has had longer intervals between in the past, but one per week is manageable.

And, of course, we are super thankful that Dad Tom, our friends and I remain virus free.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by everyone’s friend, Brian. If you’d like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to go to his blog and link up your post.


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

I only managed a haiku today for Angel Sammy and Teddy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. It, however, is based on real events from high school.

Here’s the inspiration photo and my haiku.



Boyfriend liked bowling
My balls went in the gutter
I learned to keep score
