So I’m sitting in my video chat room this morning, and suddenly it shuts down for no reason.  I’ve tried to connect to the website several times, with no luck.  This happens every now and then when they are installing new features, etc.  They don’t usually give us notice either.  I could be angry that I can’t work, but that never helps bring the website back.  I think I’ll just get the chores done, and relax for the rest of the day.  No sense worrying about something I have no control over.

I got a couple more things done on my Day Zero Project list. 🙂

I tried a new food!  I got arugula in my farm box last week, and I tried it.  To be honest, I didn’t really like it.  It was so bitter.  lol.  I got through the salad somehow though, but I’m putting it on the do not send ever again list. 🙂  Hey, I said I was gonna try a new food..  There was nothing saying I had to like it.

I also started up a Gratitude Journal. I keep it by the bed, and my plan is to write at least one thing each day that I am grateful for.  It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate.  So far I’ve been able to come up with at least three things each day.  The biggest reason I wanted to start this journal is that sometimes I get so frustrated with how things are.   Progress, while happening all the time, is slow.  I get into these moods where I just get frustrated and wish everything was done NOW!  I know that’s not realistic, so I wanted to have a constant reminder of all the things we do have.

When we moved out here, we moved from a tiny one bedroom, to a place which is probably twice the size of our old place.  We need a lot of furniture because a LOT of the stuff we had would not survive the journey.  We’re finally able to live comfortably, but we’re in the process of saving for lots of things.  A car is one of them.  I get so bogged down in how slow the things are getting crossed off the list that sometimes I think I just need a little reminder of how well we really have it.  I wanted to decorate the cover, but when we moved here we got rid of most of my deco supplies.  It’s cool though, hopefully we can get some markers or something soon. 🙂

We’re also working on finding me a dentist.  I have just had a lot of really bad dental experiences, and I’ve put a few things off.  One of my teeth needs a cap, and I have three cavities besides.  The problem is, I am allergic to Novocaine.  I wrote that I have a heart condition down on my intake form at the last dentist..  AND SHE NEVER READ IT!  She gave me Novocaine, and I had a terrible reaction.  Then she accused me of not writing down my condition on the form.  When I convinced her to check the form she said “Oops, I guess you did write it down”.  Headdesk  I dunno, that was the last dentist I went to, and to be honest that wasn’t even the worst experience.  I’m still terrified of going back though.  I know it needs to be done, and I know the sooner I go the better it will be.  Doesn’t mean I’m not terrified.

  1. MEW! What a horrible dentist!! O_O I wouldn't want to go back either, that's for damn sure.

    Your gratitude journal is a very good idea! 🙂 Sometimes it is so much easier to see what we want and don't have, rather than what we do have, which is often right in front of our faces. lol sort of like when you loose something, and it's like right *there* in the same place you've looked a bazillion times lol

    *hugs* I'm glad things are going so well for you there, that you're so happy in Colorado 🙂 Woot woot!!

  2. I love your gratitude journal too! What a wonderful goal to have 🙂 I have one that I started writing in about two years ago, and now I feel guilty for neglecting it. You have such a great attitude Faete. I love it! Thanks for being inspiring 😀

  3. So I am starting to read your blog from the beginning so apologies for adding comments on old entries. I absolutely love the idea of a gratitude journal. I think it may actually do me good because I too get those dark days where I believe I haven’t achieved anything and want everything to be done now if not sooner. I have to agree with a previous comment, your whole attitude to life is amazing.

    Keep up the good work.

    1. @AmethystWolf Aww, don’t worry about adding comments to old entries, you can feel free to do that all you like. 🙂 *HUGS* I really loved having a gratitude journal when I had it, it totally helped me look on the bright side. 🙂
