Hi all,

List the things that you appreciate and are thankful for each day.

We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.'

Today I'm thankful for:

My washing machine repair call. It was much cheaper than it could have been, and my machine now works much better. Plus, the repair guy was a guy I went to high school with - it was nice to connect with someone I knew so long ago. And, for all the years I've had this machine, I've only needed two service calls to replace worn out belts.

The resume and job search seminar I was invited to attend today.

My cats.

Supportive friends & family.

My frequent bad days at work, whi.ch are pushing me to make the changes I've wanted to make anyway.

Note to Mango - Earndit.com is great. You earn points for working out and redeem the points for products or charity. You sign up for a free account with Earndit and then sign up for one of the free GPS tracking systems listed on the Earndit website, sync your accounts, and then just work out. I would steer you away from Runkeeper. Despite their name, they have LOST my time three times. They do not respond to emails or to messages on Facebook. Now I use Endomondo and have had no problems thus far.
