Thankful Thursday #9

Day 9

Ok, so the first 8 TT weren't numbered, but I thought it might be fun to start numbering them, so here we are to #9 (pathetic considering I started this over a year ago) and my first numbered post.

Today I am grateful for:

Band-Aids - They help heal, and more importantly, they keep me from getting blood all over the carpet at work (see yesterday's post).


Pop-Tarts - Ok, so these are actually Wal-mart's brand, but they are so tasty and quick and easy and just perfect for when you're in a hurry and don't have time for an actual breakfast.

My husband - He has got to be one of THE most supportive, encouraging husbands out there. I am so grateful BUT I was especially grateful at how understanding he was during/after our first scuba lesson. He helped calm me down and even helped me not to give up but to get back in the pool the next day. He is nothing short of amazing. Last night, he helped me get ready for my Pedal & Paddle this weekend by finally installing the computer he gave me for my birthday last Aug on my bike

and attaching a mirror to my helmet.
I figure a 45-mile bike ride will be a good time way to get used to riding with a mirror. So, we'll see how that goes.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. I'm starving right now, so those pop tarts look fantastic! I'm grateful for my health, almost weekend time, and blogs!

  2. Yay for awesome husbands!
    Okay, so what does the computer thingy do? Cause the whole cycling thing is fairly new to me - it's a whole other set of "accessories" to learn about!

  3. @Amanda, Those are fun things to be thankful for. Hope you had a great weekend!

    @Ally, My computer is fairly basic it tells me my current speed, my maximum speed, the distance of my current trip, and a lifetime distance. My husband's is a bit more comprehensive giving time of trip and average speeds as well and a few other things. There are a bunch of different options for computers. I wish mine had a bit more functionality, but at least knowing my current speed is helpful for me. I'm pretty new to cycling myself.
