Reasons to Love Monday, halfway through Monday

I'm closing in on 100,000 blog views! I didn't put the counter up when I first started blogging here... and if you combined that with my first blog thru AOL, I might be closer to a million!
At least in my head...
And I will grant you that a good percentage of those views are me looking to see if I have comments... but still... for a girl like me who feels like the Queen of Incompleted Projects, having something so consistent in my life feels amazing.
SO thank you for your encouragement to be consistent in this.
Now... on with the show... although we're effectively halfway through Monday, I didn't want to miss out on my "Reasons to Love Monday" for this week.

1. I woke up this morning.
2. I went to the doctor this morning... and although the results were not good... I'm thankful to be able to see the doctor and to receive (what I can only assume is) appropriate health care.
3. My blood pressure was still high but not as high as it has been.
4. We added a fifth (yes... fifth) blood pressure medication but again, I'm thankful that I am able to have access to potentially life saving, or at least life extending medications.
5. It's cool and windy outside but the sun is bright and we're not having to use the dreaded "climate control" (heat or a/c) in the house today. We might have to tonight... going down into the thirties.
6. Austin didn't go to school (again) today. Will he graduate? I have no idea. Even if he does pass everything, I'm not sure he will walk in graduation. We have not been able to obtain a cap and gown for him. I didn't order when we were supposed to because I didn't have the money but I knew we could order online. When I went back a few weeks later to order online... it said to contact the school. Austin has been supposed to talk to his counselor for two weeks and hasn't. I could intervene but geez... if the kid can't do what he needs to do... at 18? Anyways... he's home and he's helping around the house. Sorta.
7. Stubby is loving his cat bed that I bought back before Christmas. Happy Cat = Happy Crazy Cat Lady.
8. I didn't have to have blood work again this morning. They want to wait another month. The downside was that I fasted thinking I was going to have to have blood work. The upside is that I can afford to miss a meal.
9. The Dove Awards are being broadcast tomorrow and for the first time EVER I have the channel that they're on as part of my satellite package. Chonda Pierce, who I LOVE, is the host. She is some kind of crazy! The Dove Awards are like Grammys for Christian music. I listen to contemporary Christian music and showtunes so the only awards shows that interest me are the Dove Awards and the Tony Awards. Random, I know.
10. I'm loving my cute new 'do. I've got to remember how much better I like my hair at this length and be less lazy about getting it cut.

So that's the happy, happy, happenings around here today. Hope whatever you're doing today, no matter how yucky Monday can be, I hope that you find a few reasons to love Monday, too!
