Thankful Day 22

It's Thanksgiving!  Today I give thanks for my wonderful extended family who I get to spend all day with.  I am blessed to have a rather large family who like to get together and have relatively few disagreements.  I hope all of you have a wonderful day of thanksgiving and have someone special to share a great meal with today!

Thankful, Days 17-21

I am thankful I have so much to do that I haven't been able to blog about what I am thankful about!  Seriously, it is much better to be busy cleaning the house, (so thankful for that roof over my head), taking care of my kids (so thankful for those two little monsters), and taking care of shopping errands (so thankful for the funds and transportation to do so) than the alternative!  And now for the rest:

18. Working appliances, because really, who wants to wash all those dishes by hand!

19. Our newest family member, Thomas O'Malley.  No home is truly complete without a fur person to share it with.

20. Wireless internet, it is so nice to be able to be out on the couch with my kids while I take care of business, and often play, instead of being confined to our office.

21. Ravelry, I love that site!  I think I am a much better knitter because of it.

Thankful, Day 16

Today I give thanks for Mobile Notary Public people!  Why, because the Mister and I are both sick (I think this is the first sick day he has taken in at least 5 years) and we need to sign the documents for our mortgage refinancing.  So thank goodness for a Notary who will come to our house to witness us signing all the paperwork all while exposing themselves to all our yucky germs and those rotten kids of ours.

Thankful, Day 15

Today I am thankful for Hot Cocoa weather, there is just something about a cold, gloomy day (like today) that makes me want to cuddle up on the couch with a vat of hot chocolate, a warm blankie, a book and the warm glow of my monster television.  Mmmm, chocolate...

Thankful, Day 14

Today I am thankful for naps, no necessarily for me, for the kids.  You have no idea how much you will miss them until they are gone.  Destructo-Boy used to nap reliably for at least 2 hours a day, until we enforced the removal of the pacifier by cutting off the tip, he retaliated by cutting off the naps.  I really miss those quiet few hours every day.

Thankful, Day 13

So I should have started this on the first of November, sue me I'm late (probably because I just thought of it, d'oh!).  I want to remember each and every day what I am thankful for and I thought I would record it here, some things are silly, some ridiculous, and a whole lot are simple but here are 1 through 13 in no particular order:
  1. My husband, a great guy who puts up with me and all my craziness and has for 15 years now.
  2. The smell of coffee, yes, just the smell.  
  3. My kids, the little loves of my life, I can't even imagine life without them.
  4. Fall, my absolute favorite time of the year, and yes I do realize I live in southern California but we do still get fall (at least us natives can tell the difference without the more obvious clues such as leaves changing color!)
  5. DVR's, so I can watch American Horror Story, CSI, Grimm, etc. without giving my kids nightmares or having to hide in my room.
  6. My families health, we are all amazingly healthy, knock on wood it stays that way!
  7. Dr Demento, because I was sharing some of his albums with the kids yesterday, his humor will always be weird, offbeat, and in style!
  8. That I was fortunate enough to be born here, in the United States, we may have our problems but I still feel this is the best place to live.
  9. Chocolate, because really, would life be worth living without it?
  10. Manual transmissions, because really, driving a stick is SO much more fun!
  11. The home I live in, it is ours (well, some of it anyway) and safe and a great place to raise our kids.
  12. Warm Vanilla Sugar perfume, because who doesn't want to smell like a big ole' sugar cookie?!
  13. Handkint socks, you don't know there is even a difference until you wear them, especially ones made with skinny bugga, mmm, cashmere!
