OT - Thankful Thursday

Aniki-Moderator's picture

It's been a hot minute since I did one of these. I hope PB will take time to consider all of the things for which she can be thankful.

I am extremely thankful for the StepTalk family.

Yes, I consider StepTalk to be a family. We laugh, support each other, tell hard truths with caring, and reach out to those who are scared or hurting. Reading all of the comments on PB's last blog, witnessing this family reach out... I'm not crying. You're crying.

OT - Eff Off Friday

Aniki-Moderator's picture

Friday at last. This is a short one.

Eff off to:

  • Cancer. Four days ago, I attended the funeral of a dear friend's mother, who passed away from lung cancer. Non-smoker. This coming Monday, I will once again don funeral attire to attend the funeral of a life-long friend's mother, who passed from brain cancer. A cousin's husband passed last week from - can you believe it - cancer. They were traveling at the time so the funeral will be weeks away. CANCER SUCKS.

 

Wishing you a stress-free, healthy, and enjoyable weekend.

OT - my Dad

Totally off topic, but...

My 93yo Dad has been admitted to the hospital for his heart. If you could spare a prayer or some positive energy, it would be greatly appreciated. It's a 24+ hour drive for me to to him and it might not even be necessary (could be medication). This Daddy's Girl is trying to stay calm.

Happy Friday, STalkers! Sorry I'm so late in posting. What a day. Ugh. I thought 2024 would be somewhat calmer at work. Ha! We started the year off with multiple bangs. I thought, "I'll start the new year on February 1." Things got crazier and I give up! 2024 has been a freaking rollercoaster thus far.

OT - AITA

A friend (we'll call her Rachel) has been dealing with a medical issue for several years. It does cause her discomfort on occasion, but is not fatal and does not shorten her time on this rock.

We met for dinner last night. As soon as the waiter took our order, she immediately launched into a tirade about how her doctor's office never called her back.

OT - Thankful Thursday

Happy Winter Solstice, STalkers! Winter officially begins at 10:27 PM EST tonight. No white Christmas for this snow lover. The temperature on Christmas Eve will be almost 50° F. That's shorts weather! So much for that thick, fluffy sweater I'd planned to wear. A lightweight, long-sleeved shirt and Chucks without socks will be this Finn's holiday attire.

The holiday season can be a stressful and/or depressing time for some. Step hell can really add to the negative. It might be helpful to take a few minutes to think about the positives in your life. I am thankful for:
