Thanks For That

Over in Facebookland, I've noticed lots of people updating their statuses with notes of thanks, to celebrate Thanksgiving.  That inspired me to come over here and brainstorm some things I am thankful for.  It's not everything, just what's in my head at this very moment.

*  I am thankful for good books that I can read at 3:00 a.m., to put me back to sleep after both kids of mine  wake me up for no good reason, except the fact that my bed is "better".  I think I'm going to splurge and buy them memory foam mattresses for Christmas.  Or for Thanksgiving.  Today.

* I am thankful for Monday, at 8:00 a.m., phone calls that request play dates with both kids of mine, right after school until 5:00.  What will I do with myself ALL DAY?  I will figure this out.

*I am thankful for a mom that calls me up to invite me to things, like "Lord of the Dance".   

*I am thankful for a 16-year-old brother who is poor and needs money, and will (happily) babysit (play Wii) my kids so I can go to things my mom invites me to.

*I am thankful for people that are 100% more organized than me that I can copy ideas from:  For instance, Christmas presents (Shannon)--see below:

and also for this person for what I'm making for dinner tonight--

*I am thankful for my new My Touch, even though there's not a "snap your fingers and you're there/it's done/it's cleaned/it's cooked/you handled that splendidly" application, I'm sure it's in the works, because there is literally an application for everything else in there. Plus it's way fun.  Way.

*I am thankful for a hubby that will run to the store at the drop of a hat and get me clam chowder, bring the wrong clam chowder home and then go back to the store and get the right clam chowder, with minimal grumbling.

*I am thankful for my children, because I would be bored without them.  Well rested, but bored.

*I am thankful that in almost falling down the stairs this morning and spilling my coffee everywhere, and I do mean everywhere, that I didn't break my neck.

*I am thankful for Tivo.

*I am thankful for Jazzercise, because that sucker works.

*I am thankful for low-impact Jazzercise, especially when I almost fall down the stairs and I hurt a little now.

*I am thankful for pencils with erasers and "delete" keys, cuz I make all kinds of mistakes.  Every time.

*I am thankful you stopped by to read this today.  Please come back.
