Monday 5 Countdown #7

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks
It's Monday again, so it's once again time to do the Monday 5 Countdown that I got from Bookish Penguin.

Five Things I'm Grateful For:

  1. A fresh start, a new beginning.
  2. Not catching whatever awful illness my Dad had over Christmas.
  3. My 2 week break from work to rest, relax, recooperate and catch-up on things around the house.  It was very much needed.
  4. A forever forgiving, understanding, and patient significant other.
  5. The fact that although I was on-call for work during both Christmas and New Year's, I did not get a single call. 
Four Things I Can't Stop Thinking About:
  1. Recent upsetting family drama.
  2. What I want to accomplish in 2011 and how I'm going to do it.
  3. My boyfriend and I recently started talking about taking a late winter/early spring trip to Hawaii and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it (or other possible places to go) since.
  4. How fast time seems to be passing.  The older I get, the faster it goes.

Three Things I Want To Accomplish This Week:
  1. Finish knitting a scarf I started.
  2. Lose 2 pounds.
  3. Survive the work-week.  I expect the transition to be a wee bit rough since I haven't been to the office since December 17th and my sleep schedule is all out of wack.
Two Things I Am Working To Be Positive About:
  1. That 2011 is going to be an amazing year!
  2. The upsetting family drama mentioned above.
One Random Thing:
  1. In my gift idea post I published in late November I mentioned an ice cream maker.  Well, I did decided to buy the one I mentioned for my boyfriend for Christmas.  He also had the same idea and bought me the exact same one.  We exchanged one and used the other for the first time this weekend.  We made reeses peanut butter cup ice cream and it was delicious.  Very, very delicious.

Families can create drama with the best of them, I think. Family drama (mine or anyone else's) makes me glad I live 1200 miles away from my nearest relative. ;-) Now, pass that ice cream! Yum!

Thanks for the comment, Dawn. 1200 miles is pretty far, but sometimes that seems like it might be just about the right distance.

In terms of the ice cream, I am eling to share, but you better get here soon. It might nit last much longer! Of course, that would just give us a god excuse to make more. :)
