Ten Things of Thankful, Week 20/2019

Ten Things of Thankful, Week 20/2019


So I proudly join the TToT-community again. Let’s see what I can contribute:

  • On Monday I finished my OT project. The basket turned out fine. I worked on it for 10 hours, it was a lot of work.
  • I met with my pain doc on Monday. We decided to leave my medication as it is, and she was very pleased. I will see her again in August.
  • Tuesday I started group OT in a very bad mood, because making a mosaic isn’t my thing. But I made progress, so I felt better afterwards, and this was good.
  • I cleaned the tiles on our terrace. It was hard work, but I pulled through. It was a good feeling to have contributed to this project.
  • My husband was able to go ahead and took the clean tiles down, this was an important step.
  • On Thursday I met with my psychiatrist. We will leave medication as it is, and I was relieved to hear this. A change in medication can always be tricky.
  • Went to my monthly appointment at the podiatrist on Wednesday, and everything went well.
  • I will meet with a fellow patient I met last summer during my inpatient stay next Wednesday. She texted me and said she is really looking forward to it, and so am I!
  • A nice couple is interested in adopting the shelter dog we walk every Saturday. I hope everything goes well and Truman finally finds a wonderful forever home!
  • Saturday we ate out, so I didn’t have to cook. This was very nice and I hade a quiet Saturday.

  1. It sounds like you had a good week, overall. A ten-hour project finished is a big accomplishment! Medications that are working as they should is always reason to be thankful. Have fun with your friend! I hope everything goes well with the adoption of the shelter dog. Will you start walking a different dog once Truman is adopted?

    1. Our dogs of course will have a say in this, but we humans definitely would like to help more dogs. Often shelter dogs enjoy to be part of a pack again, and we can help with that.


  2. What a lovely week. I like these kinds of weeks. We had spring here, but it’s gone and it’s been raining and raining again. Sigh.

    Have a fabulous day and week ahead. ♥

  3. Yeah for you sticking with a project that took 10 hours to complete!
    Not having to adjust to new medications is a good thing, especially if you are doing okay with the way things are now.
    Sounds like you had a very pleasant Saturday.
    Hope you have a great week ahead.

  4. Number 4 sounds like something I’d enjoy, the cleaning of tiles of a patio… I always prefer the ‘large scale’ projects… ( “What, the tiles, why yes they are cleaner! Thank you for noticing!” lol)
    A dog being adopted must be such a mixed pleasure…providing for them until the people find them who will take him/her home.
    Number 2…. ‘next appointment in August’. Man! We totally have to formalize a ‘Doctor’s Appointment Time’ …you know, like dog years (“Yeah but I’m only 20 years old in dog years.”)…. Sorta, sure! I be right over in three months or so…. (in Doctor Appointment Time)
    Have a good week.

    1. Taking care of a dog who will live with another family isn’t easy, that’s true. We love this little man, and he become a part of the pack. We will miss him, that’s for sure!
      Have a great week!


  5. Well done on the basket, 10hrs is a lot of time & effort to put in to it! Sounds good with the pain doc & psych appointments, less med changes should mean less upheaval right now. Meeting up with the patient you got to know last summer sounds like something to look forward to, and I’ll keep my fingers crossed Truman gets his happily ever after! 🙂

    1. I will post a picture of the basket later.
      We will see how the meeting with the other former patient will turn out, but we go to a restaurant – at least we will have a good meal.
      Truman was adopted several times, but he was brought back to to shelter every time because he bit the new owners. so we hope for the best this time.
