SOOOO because of the work and the injury I sustained from work, I have fallen SOOOOOO far behind on my challenges. To the point I considered giving up..With that in mind, and I feel this is kind of a cheat, doing it this way, however I also didnt feel right spamming the forums, and websites with ALL of my challenges!
Instead I will be posting a list of the past days I have missed, with a small reason why I am grateful for it. Dates included!!!
7.23.16 – I am grateful for storage, to reflect on reasons why my Master is finally moving in with me. That I get to rearrange things, pack, and place some of my things into storage to make room for my Master.
7.24.16 – Hearing my Master laugh as we joke about what it will be like when he does move in.
7.25.16 – For the quiet time I get to sit and have some time to reflect, because I know once Master gets here, I won’t have that much anymore of being alone.
7.26.16 – Driving, and the fact they sell boxes at ups stores, because my Master has NO idea how to pack!!!
7.27.16 – It was nice to have two days off in a row, so I could relax with Master!
7.28.16 – The fact that I have a job and can help bring in the bacon so that I feel I contribute.
7.29.16 – I am happy I dont work so far away that I can sleep in, and it takes me fifteen minutes to drive to work.

8.04.16 – Having my other brother staying with us for a few days, with the kids. It is so wonderful to just have these moments.
8.05.16 – Getting our back to school shopping done, and out of the way!!! So hard for me this year, as my minion is starting her first year in high school. tears
8.06.16 – FAMILY movie night….YEP…once a week, someone gets to choose a movie, and we sit down and watch it, no matter how stupid it seems to be. It is fun, popcorn, movie, memories!!!

8.08.16 – Having Master come visit me at work for lunch break….YAY!!!
8.09.16 – Playing Pokemon go as a family is the best, I may have said this before….but do you know how hard it is to get a 14 year old out of the house to spend time with family. I am grateful for it, and I feel victorious!!!

8.18.16 – Sales…like HUGE sales on canvases, and claw and stuff so Master and I can get artsy.
8.19.16 – Finding things to do that isnt gaming, like when Master and I take an interest in dance, or something. I like doing things together.

I am grateful to feel the loss, because it shows I am alive, but if it does come in three, I dont want it. Lost my brother, and my mother in law so far. If grief can be satisfied, let that be the only losses we have.
