Joyce at From This Side of the Pond usually hosts 7 fun yet thought-provoking questions on Wednesdays – called the Wednesday Hodgepodge. But because she is recovering from the aftereffects of Superstorm Sandy, there will be no Hodgepodge this week. Hopefully the Hodgepodge will be back next week … in the meantime, let’s be praying for Joyce and everyone else affected by Sandy.
Today I’m thankful for:
- phlebotomists who are good at what they do … I had to have blood drawn for some routine bloodwork this morning. I have teeny, tiny little veins that are quite good at evading the needle … which means that blood draws usually involve a good deal of exploring … which means OUCH! Today the blood draw was the. most. painless draw I’ve ever had in my 61+ years.
- DVD rentals … DH and I neither one had much desire to watch the election returns last night. We knew that it would be well past our bedtime before anyone would be announced the winner, so there wasn’t much point in listening to hours and hours of talking heads discussing the importance of Ohio.
- my God who is still in control … and my trust is in Him, regardless of who’s in the Oval Office
I have my mammogram this morning. I’m hoping it’s as painless as my blood draw was.
My afternoon will be spent with 2 of my Ts … the 2 littles are coming over this afternoon. Mama and the 2 bigs have stuff all afternoon … since the 2 littles need naps, they’re coming here. They’ll be here until about bedtime, so there will be plenty of time for playing, too.
