My 50 Pleasures – Cee’s Share Your World

Cee’s Share Your World – Week 47. Since this is Thanksgiving in the USA this week, I thought I would celebrate all week. There is only one question this week and here it is. I haven’t made a list like this in a long time. I used to do it fairly frequently. I hope you want to play along! List at least 50 Things You Enjoy. Here are some categories to inspire your thinking.

  • Activities
  • Restaurants
  • People
  • Foods
  • Games
  • Drinks/Beverages
  • Desserts
  • Paintings
  • Web Sites
  • Writers
  • Famous lines from books/movies

This seems like a tough challenge because I think my life these days is fairly boring. Let’s see… My List of 50 Things I Enjoy:

  2. These days, I’m with the folks who say “any day you wake up and get out of bed is a good one”. And hey, LOOK MOM, no cavities! I went to the dentist and got out with what’s left of my teeth. Now THAT is a victory!

    I am looking forward to MY injections. Two weeks to go!

    • Lucky you! I ordered a tens unit and am anxiously awaiting its arrival. Have you ever used one? I’m supposing even if you did, it didn’t help much otherwise you wouldn’t be going for the shot.


      • P.S. If nothing goes wrong next year,my teeth will be next for check-ups and work. 😯


      • I haven’t tried a TENS. Pricey for something that might not work for me. I do know people who have had success with them, but they have different problems. It may work better for some problems, some people, than others.

        • The nurse at my Pain Mgmt. Dr.’s office sold me one for over 200, with attachments – said it’s medical quality. I checked Amazon and ordered the e-x-a-c-t same products for 60.00.

          When I get a chance, I’ll post photos of the one which was sent to me for $200 (I returned) and the one which I will be receiving sometime this week or over the weekend.

          Yes, sadly there is not one cure-all for every back pain/problem.


  3. Ah, campfires and clear starry nights sound so blissful right now. 🙂

  4. Great list, Swoosieque. I like a lot of those, too, and my husband and I have gotten the kids into The Beatles. Recent birthday cake for kid #1 was Yellow Submarine-themed. Also, I will no longer complain (so far, it’s been an internal complaint) about not having a date night with my husband in a year. Have a fantastic Thanksgiving (and my wish for you is that someone else is cooking . . . ). 🙂
