Grateful that my parents let me park my car in their garage tonight- poor baby wouldn't have started otherwise. Also grateful for the ride I got into work this morning- even a 15 minute walk is no fun when it feels like -45 outside

Grateful that wonderful labrador retriever appears to be OK now. He'd been fine this morning, although he seemed annoyed that I wouldn't take him for a long walk in -40 degree windchills. He was running his face through the snow, rolling around in it, and eating it. Brrrr. Then, round about noon he started vomiting, and kept vomiting every so often over the next 4 hours or so. He couldn't even keep down a couple of ounces of room temperature water. I've been totally snowbound since about 9:00 a.m. and there was no way for me to get out to his vet's office. But I managed to get a call through to his vet, and he had me check the tongue and a couple of other things, and said that the snow is loaded with bacteria and that's the likely culprit. Now the dog is getting up some energy again and pestering me to go outside, so I guess I'll have to improvise some kind of muzzle to keep him from eating the snow. But I'll find a way - he's worth it!

Grateful for increase in both energy reserves and metabolism - the adjustment to my thyroid dosage must be kicking in. Resting heart rate will still freak out my primary care physician, but my cardiologist is not concerned - very grateful for that.

Oh, wow. A neighbor who has a big trucking business and snow/ice removal contracts with big shopping centers saw our driveway (which could have doubled as a bobsled run) and gratuitously brought his huge, big truck up our driveway to salt it. Wow, wow, wow! So very, very grateful for people with big hearts (and big equipment)!
