Thankful Thursday

We're still adjusting our routine after tax season. It takes a lot of practice to get our new normal just right...
We do have something to be thankful for. Isabella was re-tested for her hyperthyroidism after being on meds for 50 days and her results were fabulous! She went from 3.4 (4 is the upper limit) to 1.2! I won't be tested for several months since I'm no longer on meds for my hyperthyroidism because I'm allergic to them. I am finally no longer itchy all the time and for that I'm thankful. We're both thankful there is no room in this chair for Lexi...
The biggest thing we're thankful for is that we just endured our last tax season! Yep, we're officially retired as CPA Cats! After 20 tax seasons, Mommy's body just can't handle sitting for so many hours for so many days. She's also worked really hard to become healthy and lose quite a bit of weight the past 1.5 years so sitting for 25% of the year is counterproductive to that. It was just time for her to retire. Plus she's been saying to the Universe for the past five years that she wanted to retire at 50 so that's what she did! We're all happy and looking forward to not being stuck in the office next year and for whatever the future may bring!

What are you thankful for today?

Hope you have a great day!
Angel

That is awesome that your mommy got to retire. Good for her. That's cause for celebration.

Wow, good for your mom for being able to retire so young, that's very rare! Well done and congratulations!

We bet this means your mom and dad will abandon you more, though. LOL.

I am so excited for you, Sharla! It sounds like you have some work still on the schedule...but not like before. I find that I work a couple of days a week and then do the things I like. It's good to have that work stuff still there to keep your mind cranking...but then you can still do more of the things you want to do. I hope you try some new things and have wonderful adventures in this new life of yours!

Good for mommy and her retirement. It's such freedom when you don't have to work anymore. You find other interests that keep you busy and that's far more healthy.

Way to go on getting those numbers down. Always great news.

I'm thankful that I get to see all of you from time to time. I so remember visiting you several years ago. It was grand fun.

Have a purrfect and woof woof Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ♥♥♥

Way to go, Sharla, on weight loss and retirement. You are going to love retirement, and I bet the girls will enjoy you having more time to make beady treasures. And that is wonderful news about Isabella as well and that Angel is not itching. Loved the second photo.
