thankful thursday

This Thursday I am thankful for:

smoothies.  We finally have some wonderfully warm beautiful weather outside so this week I have switched my eggs and toast breakfast to a nice cold smoothie.  They have been so refreshing.  Perfect way to start my mornings, light but filling.  They have all included greek yogurt, milk, peanut butter, and two types of frozen fruit.  YUM.

DRGs.  I know this one is weird.  That stands for dorsal root ganglion.  They are part of my work.  I work in a research lab looking at spinal cord injuries and that means I have to do dissections.  Which used to just mean simple, can see it with the naked eye thing.  But in the past year or so I have been dealing with a love/hate relationship with DRGs.  Of a mouse.  Which means break out the mega microscope and fine tipped utensils and dig around for something the size of a pencil lead. Or a comma.  yeah. tiny.
yeah, I'm awesome. toot toot
I thought I was done with them.  But my boss proved that theory wrong.  Right now they are both a feeling of accomplishment and a "in 3 weeks I never have to do this again" type of feeling.  Both of which I feel like are a good thing right now.

a good seller.  The person we are buying our house from is also a realtor.  She bought this house to flip it.  Which means it is pretty much move-in ready.  But there were a few issues with it at the inspection... the main one that had us freaking out was a leak in the bathroom from a cracked pipe.  So we submitted our list last Thursday for requested repairs.  And lo and behold, she agreed to practically everything on the list.  Big.Sigh.of.Relief. 

So what are you thankful for this week?

I'm linking up with Julia over at black tag diaries.
