Being Thankful, Week 1

After reading the daily "what I'm thankful for" posts on facebook and reading a blog that does the same thing;; I have come to a conclusion.  I want in!  But, I don't think for a minute that I will remember to post daily so I'm going to cheat and do it weekly!  Starting today! 

I'm now going to think back to what I'm thankful for.  :)

Nov 1-I'm thankful for my family.  That's obvious, but important.

Nov 2 - I'm guessing that I was thankful that it was Friday.

Nov 3 - I'm thankful that my parents took me and the kids to IHOP for dinner.  Because I love spending time with my parents and the food was good.

Nov 4 - I'm thankful that when searching for ziploc bags, I found two unopened boxes of pop-tarts.   I guess I should plan on being thankful soon for finally cleaning out the pantry, but it doesn't seem likely.

Nov 5 - I thankful that I actually completed he ridiculous amount of errands that I had to run.  I would've been more thankful for a relaxing day, but you can't have everything.

Nov 6 - I'm thankful that there wasn't a line when I voted.  Because I hate lines.  I'm also thankful that Brian was there to reassure me that I had sufficiently bubbled in the circle when I got irrationally worried that I hadn't. ;) 

Nov 7- I'm thankful for my first day of work at a job that I think I'm really going to like. 

Every working woman should have a super hero lunch box.

Nov 8- I'm thankful that Antwan got right out of bed this morning and started to get dressed so I didn't have to be late on my second day to my new job that I think I'm going to like.

Nov 9 - I'm thankful that I got to hang out with friends which I haven't done in a long time and got to see my favorite singer perform.

Nov 10 - I'm thankful that there were no bruises or broken bones to deal with this morning.  Because when I heard that the kids were awake and I dragged myself out of bed, William proudly told me "We played roughly in my room, with the door closed."  So, the morning started with a little talk about the dangers of playing roughly when I'm not there to make sure everyone's safe.

I'm also thankful for the relaxing day that I spent with the kids at the farmer's market. 

 And, really, really hoping to be thankful for the smooth bedtime. ;)

But, judging by the noise, it's not going smoothly.  So, I guess I have to get back to work.  I'm not feeling so thankful for that ;)



  1. Beautiful and powerful. Gratitude is the key to happiness

  2. Wow, I'm impressed you could remember that many days of things you were/are grateful for. I don't believe my mind would work so well!! I am grateful you gave my daughter's blog,, a "look-see." I think the two of you would be good friends. Hope your new job is continuing to work well for you.
