Fat Thigh-roid Woes: End of a Grave Year
Rather short and sweet column for everyone today. More like a letter, if you will. I’ve been working out like a mad woman trying to lose a final 10lbs from my ass, and between the gym and work I have little time for much else. However, since it’s coming to the end of 2010, I sat back and reflected…and it was almost in a cliche like manner. No, didn’t sit by a window while the rain gently hit the panes of glass and lose myself in thought. I sat on my bed and went “What THE FUCK just happened?” which is very cliche for Ms. Nicole.
I’d say 99% of the people we all know say “Wow, this year FLEW BY!” at the end of every year.
The other 1% say “I can’t wait for next year.”
That would be ME. I’m ready to start 2011 to a fresh start, and since it’s the holiday season I want to remember to be “thankful” of all the things that have occurred over the past year before we hop into 2011.
I’m thankful for the radioactive iodine which helped get rid of that fat neck. I’m thankful for my appendix being removed while I have no insurance cause I don’t have to “pay” for it, and I’m thankful to not have to worry about appendicitis at any other point in my life. I’m thankful for Costco sweat pants – they allowed me to attend my photography class while recovering from surgery. I’m thankful for having thirteen years with my wonderful doggie, and seeing him go was and is still very hard. I’m thankful for gaining weight from the RAI and watching new stretch marks carve out a road map along my bangin’ child-birthing hips. I’m thankful for a new job. I’m thankful to finally have health insurance so I can stop paying out my arse for blood tests. I’m thankful for having caller ID so I can ignore the calls from collections from all the dumbass medical bills that will NEVER be paid – SO STOP CALLING ME. I’m thankful for being made out to sound like a criminal in my collections notices, because it makes me feel very rebellious. I’m thankful for the current case of hives I’m sporting, cause that’s a good reason to hit up the doctor in addition to everything else that is going haywire with my body.
I’m thankful for losing my hair once again, cause it’s going to be 80 degrees this weekend – might as well not have too much fur on my scalp.
I’m thankful that 2010 hasn’t lost his wicked sense of humor, I’d be surprised to see that fucking prick change.
I’m thankful for my potty mouth. I’m thankful for not being born a boring person.
And finally, I’m thankful for the Dear Thyroid community, cause you all make me want to run wild and naked in the streets. With the encouragement and support we all receive here, there is always something to be thankful for!
What’s on YOUR “thankful” list?
