Today I am thankful for . . .
515. The gift of The Ability to Call-In Sick to work. I have WAY more sick hours than I could ever use. Actually, I figured it out once and I could miss half the year by "calling in sick" if I used up all my sick time, and still get paid for all the days I called in. If only they would pay us out for those unused hours . . .
I woke up feeling horrible this morning. Tight chest (it felt prickly and sore), no voice and light-headedness. I tried to get ready to go to work, but I realized very early on in my attempt to do so that I would have to stay home. I only have four more days of work left and then it's the summer holidays!
516. The gift of Anticipating the Potential Meeting of another blogger, face-to-face! This may be happening very soon, and I'm really looking forward to it. I hope it all works out!
517. The gift of Movies With A Message. While almost every movie out there has some sort of "theme", there are some movies that are more impactful than others. A couple of weeks ago, Pay It Forward was on T.V., so I taped it on our PVR. This morning the boys and I watched it . . . kind of. We got to (almost) the end of the movie, and it quit. I neglected to add more time at the end of my PVR recording process, and the channel I was taping obviously didn't set its programming up properly, so now I'm in need of the movie in DVD form so that the boys and I can finish it. This is one movie that must be viewed to. the. end. in order to get the full impact/message. Pay It Forward is one of my all-time favourite movies and even after watching it several times, I still cry through a lot of it. And the crying is going to get worse once we watch the last ten minutes.
