Nov. 29 - Toot that Horn!
Want to hear a secret? You’re awesome. (It’s actually not even really a secret). This is going to be hard for you, O Modest One, but you gotta give yourself props today! Write three things you love about yourself – things you’re great at – or just want to share. Don’t you dare signpost or undercut those self-compliments!
Why yes, I am awesome! I do my best to be a good listener and think outside the box. I try not to judge and work hard to be proactive. :)
This one is the hardest one for me... I'm not very good at tooting my own horn.

What’s the one thing you’re most thankful for? Write a list of three things that you’re thankful for, excited about, or inspired by.
I am thankful that I have a family who loves me no matter my condition.
1. I love that my niece, Missy, can spell my name independently and knows my phone number by heart! She inspires me to find new reasons to smile each day and just embrace the silliness of it all.
2. I am excited that I am getting one of those cool gel pillows for Christmas this year! I freaking love my sister's and cannot wait to get it!! I really think it will help with my night sweats and help me rest better.
3. I am in awe of my sister and how creative she is. She has the ability to pick up new skills, create stunning crafts out of gaudy trashy looking items... She has no idea how amazing she is. I love you Jennifer!!

Nov. 27. Black Friday and Holiday Shopping - In preparation for Black Friday holiday shopping, give some advice on how to survive the long lines and packed stores. How do you find the best bathrooms? How do you stay comfortable on your feet? Give us some tips before heading to the stores.
Order online! Or do what I do - offer to babysit so your friends can go shopping, then slip them some cash and your list. :) We can usually get the children to enjoy a cuddly fun day of movies, books, snacks, helping cook, and decorating the tree... Which is much more fibro-friendly than fighting it out in the mall at 4am.
