Thankful Thursday

Thanksgiving is getting closer and and closer. I believe there are 21 days to go. I think there are only like 48 more days until Christmas. (My math skills are baffling - I know) Thankful Thursday's aren't going to stop once the holidays are over. I was thinking in the shower this morning why I blog and what I expect to get out of it. I think like everyone it is a form of therapy. I know I have maybe one reader, so truly this is for me. It is a way to journal my thoughts and activities. It will be a way to remind myself how I felt in the year after my mom's death. It will be a way to remind myself how special this first year of my marriage and Monkey's life is. So without further ado:

  1. I am thankful for blogging. For all the people that blog. For the reasons above and for so many more. I am thankful that there are people that are willing to share their miracles and tragedies. I am thankful for the people that share their mundane day to day activities and for the moms of multiples and the moms that hope to have multiples. For all the lives I never knew were out there I have a chance to glimpse into.

  2. I am thankful for Blue and Biscuit. My first two boys. Woops - haha - Delicate Flower really is my first boy. While they have yet to truly learn where their kitty box is located is, (Blue has a fondness for the corner next to the shower) they still are a calming comfort. Biscuit is soo good with the baby. I'm pretty sure he thinks he is his most of the time.

  3. I am thankful for my job. I know I haven't been applying myself 100% as of late. But I do truly love it. It's really stressful, and I think I need to go back on ADD medicine. I had stopped in the pregnancy and felt confident that I managed without it, but I think with everything going on it's time to make a visit to the dr. and have some conversations.

  4. Ok, this is going to sound completely ridiculous, but I am thankful for QVC. I used to think it was some silly crappy shopping channel full of spotted dalmatians, but QVC has actually enabled to have some nice things in my house that I normally couldn't buy. It is affordable and it is quality. And given that I try to pay for everything in cash, their flex pay system let's me buy things like a TV a little sooner than if I saved the money for it.

  5. I am thankful that Delicate Flower really seems to be finding himself this year. I think I already said this, but I can't say it enough. He had a really tough time last year and has been making every effort to ensure this year is not a repeat.

  6. What are you thankful for?
