Today I am grateful for:

1. the sunny, warm day we are having
2. helping my budget by switching to coffee from 5 hour energy drinks, which will save me about $80 per month
3. people that give blood

Treat yourself to something nice with that money. When I quit chewing tobacco I found it was a great motivator to get myself a gift with the money saved.

Thanks Astro I hadn't thought of that but it is a good idea. I will think of something nice for myself at least for the first month

Today I am grateful for:

1. having my dog two years as of yesterday and grateful to the rescue that delivered her to me
2. my flexible work scheduled so I was able to go to my mom's doctor appointment today
3. my free bagel from Bruegger's this morning
Happy Valentine's Day everyone

2. possibly finding a roommate for a few months for some extra money to help pay for home repairs/improvements
3. my mom looking so pretty yesterday she's always pretty but yesterday she had earrings in and some makeup on, a new blue blouse and she looked really pretty. Her hair even on the sides (it was just the top for a while) is starting to grow back
