Tag Archives: Three Things Thursday

Time for another Three Things Thursday – Created by Emily at Nerd In the Brain and being hosted by Natalie over at There She Goes.

Three Things that made me happy or made me smile:

My son’s first flight as a “non-unaccompanied minor” went off without a hitch (well, for the most part)…  It did for him anyway.  I ran into a slight problem at the airport when I went to pick him up, but as far as my son goes, he did just fine…. I’m, needless to say, pretty proud of him for how he did.
One of the ladies at a local store I shop at all the time has returned after being gone for a while I have not totally determined if it was vacation or family emergency (or whatever)….  You kind of get to know the cashiers, etc at the stores you frequent….  I had been wondering where she was at and when she’d be  back.  This particular lady is deaf (not that should define her), and communicating can be interesting but I still often make it a point to go through her line.  I enjo the opportunity to say “Hi, How are you” in sign language and occassionally pick up or re-learn another word or two.

Hard to believe my son is the big 1-6 now…  He’ll be starting his Sophmore year of High School and will be going to a new (online) school this year…. Orientation, in fact, is tomorrow morning.

So that’s pretty much what’s made me smile, made me happy, made me proud….  I could maybe come up with more stuff, but I’m having a hard time keeping my eyes open so I can see what I’m typing.

Good Night all and have a wonderful weekend!!!


So here we are back at Thursday – Time for Three Things Thursday.  β¬…️ click on on the link to head over to our hosts TTT post for this week, just don’t forget to come back.

So now the hard part…  Three Things???  Having trouble coming up with three things, much less coming up with three things that made us smile this last week.

Let’s see there’s 3 merit badges my son earned while at sumer camp:

  1. Basketry
  2. Environmental Science
  3. Space Exploration

I know he took Basketry.  I think I have the other two correct.  That’s, also, not necessarily all that he took.

Three Careers that interest me:

  1. Crime Scene Investigation
  2. Journalism
  3. Something in Medicine (having a hard time deciding on a specific career to list.

Three Things to Smile about:

  1. Sunrises
  2. Coffee (LOL had to put that down as I drink the last of my morning coffee)
  3. Quiet Mornings

Wishing you all a blessed and wonderful upcoming weekend.  Hope you have a fun 4th of July.  Please remember to Stay Safe, follow instructions and use all necessary cautions when using fire crackers.  Be sure to learn the laws in your area regarding there usage.  It is a bad year for many places (I know California, Arizona, New Mexico are high on this list) for Wild Fires so please be careful and make sure you are  setting up in a good safe area, and have plenty of water on hand….  OK,  done with my little safety speech.

See y’all next Thursday.  Till then I wish you all well.


So three things that happened last week

Don’t know what all had The Hubby smiling last week but he was chuckling, several times, over a book he was reading.  My guess he was also smiling (on the inside anyway) about getting the ingrown toenail taken care of.

The Son, well he rarely smiles so it’s hard to come up with stuff for him.  He did have his annual eye exam and had his eyes dilted – pretty sure he was happy when that part was over. He has also decided that he wants to try and earn his eagle (which has me smiling).  

Previously, he hasn’t shown signs of wanting to do his Eagle and we haven’t pushed it.  Right now he’s in the process of earning his Life rank and is making good progress.  If he can finish up a few merit badges that he started earlier and get elected into an “office” he could (feasibly get his Life  at the next Court of Honor (in the fall), if not then next Spring Which would give him around a year and a half to two years to earn his eagle (before he turns 18).  It looks as if he may be able to earn some Eagle Palms as well.
Sorry, looks like mine ended up o the lengthy sideπŸ˜…πŸ˜‹.

How about joining Natalie over at  There She Goes for Three Things Thursday….  Go on, check it out and we’ll catch you later.  Have your self a wonder and blessed weekend.


Totally blew off doing our Three Things Thursday post for the week yesterday…  At least it’s only Friday and I didn’t totally blow it off — phewww πŸ˜….

So, what three things can I mention this week?   Hard to come up with stuff sometimes without repeating the same things that I’ve already mentioned numerous times, either here or in other posts.

The Hubby went to the doctor yesterday to have minor surgery done on his toe nail — Yeah I know… “What?!?  Why would someone need surgery on a nail”…  He had a problem with an ingrown toe nail that was causing him problems.  He is both paraplegic – semi-ambulatory (less so though after the stroke) and diabetic.  Both of which are not good when it comes to having an in-grown problematic nail.  He said that the waiting around took longer than the actual procedure.

The Son continues to do well, and improving nicely, in his Martial Arts.  Coordination is probalby one of the harest parts for him.  I grabbed this quick photo, the other day, of him sparring with 2 other gentleman.  Obviously, being that he’s still pretty new at all this, they went easy on him.

​​
As for me (The Wife)…. Well,  I recently did some more ridealongs with both the local police department and the local sheriff’s department.  Got another one scheduled for another nearby police department in a couple weeks.

As usual,  I’m doing my Mary Kay business, as well as tweeting, posting, sharing, etc stuff for my Public Safety Tidbits (unfortunately I haven’t had much to write about there) and Taini Writes (time, and lack of muse, has been a factor here – sadly).

Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed weekend.


Ohhh My Gosh —  Friday already?!?  How did I manage to skip a day in blogging and over look the Three Things Thursday challenge.

Sorry to say I haven’t been following the whole bombing in Manchester super closely but not for lack of caring and as Natalie says in her post (link above) it is hard to smile when things like that are happening.  

Speaking of smiles and blogging,  I am at a decision making point – There are two smile challenges that I do on this blog. Both the Three Things Thursday hosted by Natalie and the Weekly Smile hosted by Trent…  Originally I was doing the weekly smile on my personal blog Jottings and Writings but then I moved it over here as I felt I needed a way to have more content.  Now I’m wondering if I should move it back or if I should move this one over there…. Uggghhhh Decisions, Decisions.

That being said,  3 things for this week:

1) Cataract surgery for the Husband’s second eye has been approved and has been scheduled for July.

2). I am going in for my first volunteer gig this next week….  And have a ridealong scheduled the same day – Going to be a busy day that one, LOL, but I’m looking forward.

3). The Son is plugging a way with his Math and is almost done with English.  We got him signed up for summer school at a new school that we’re looking at for next near.  It’s online based but at a physical school so there is the benifit of having teachers to help.  We actually looked at this school last year but were pushed into a different school because, well, Family πŸ˜•πŸ˜’πŸ˜‘.  It’s looking like this new school may very well be a good fit for the son to continue his High School education….  That’s what the summer school is about – to see how he does and what he (and we) thinks.

Wishing everyone a Wonderful, Blessed, and Happy weekend.
