Thankful Thursday

It's Thankful Thursday again! My how time flies when you are having fun!

Today I am thankful for my job. It's hare to have to go to work every day but really, considering the economy in this country right now, and especially in our lovely state of Michigan, I am thankful to have such a good job. The pay is decent and the benefits are second to none. I get great medical and dental coverage for Rich and I. My retirement plan is one where I contribute 5% of my salary and the university contributes 10%. I like all of the people I work with and my supervisor is fair and a very easy person to work for. I have been working here for 4-1/2 years. If I have to work for another 15 years then this is the place to be!

Go visit Julie at

This cold is kicking my ass. I have felt like crap every day this week. Monday-Wednesday my head was so plugged up I could hardly stand it. You know how hard it is to sleep at night when you can't breath through your nose? I finally gave in and used nasal spray because nothing else was working. Even then, I would wake up with a dry mouth and sore throat from sinus drainage and mouth breathing! Ug!!

Today my head is clearer but my throat is sore and I am starting to cough. The cold is moving into my lungs now. In a few days it should be gone. In the meantime, I am tired from not sleeping well. Maybe tonight I will take some AdvilPM and knock myself out for the night!

We are supposed to be getting some heavy duty snow tonight and tomorrow. It would be nice if it would be enough snow where I can't make it into work, but probably just enought to make the trip difficult. Oh well, winter in Michigan. Just one more month and we are on our way to Spring!

We are going to buy a laptop computer this weekend and while we're at it, I may buy a new camera too. I want one that will take close up pictures nice and clear. I think probably Canon or Nikon is a good brand. My current one is a Samsung and well, they should stick to making TV's! Oh well, it was cheap and you get what you pay for!

Everybody seems to have a Nikon around blogland. I have a Sony Cybershot but I think my next camera will be a Nikon D80. I believe Kila over at had a post about her new camera not too long ago. She may have gotten a Canon.

Sounds like you do have a good job..and one that is going to help you prepare for the future nicely.

I'm envious of your laptop shopping this weekend! Have fun!
