Month: July 2019


Today, I am thankful for the rain, the thunder, and the sunlight.

The rain reminded me how damn lucky I am. I get to stay home. I don’t have to commute in that horrible traffic that gets backed up to twice as long, as soon as one drop falls. I don’t even have to put pants on if I don’t want to.

The thunder makes Sawyer a little nervous, ever since he experienced his first 4th of July in Chicago. But that only means that I get to snuggle an adorable pup who wants to be as close to me as he can get.

The sun in the afternoon. Generally, you can’t get me outside when it’s humid out there. Especially when I’m having a no pants party. But I am forced to spend at least a couple hours, outside, getting some good old fashioned vitamin D, and lots of puppy time. And ya know what, the humidity aint shit against that kind of enjoyment.


Today, I am thankful for my apartment. I am thankful for the location. I am thankful for the far away views of the downtown buildings. Thankful the lease was renewed only 2 months ago. I am thankful that while I would love to move somewhere else, there is no pressure for that to happen quickly.

We went for a walk in the neighborhood around 8 PM. There were three different guys, moving out of their places. All three, alone. One guy only had a CR-V. Another guy had a U-Haul, pulling a trailer already filled to the brim, and he was still loading stuff into his jeep. Today’s weather was in the 90’s. I am so very thankful to not have the burden those guys had today.
