Ok. So apparently we are NOT skipping Thanksgiving, this year. Whew. That's a relief.
And, in light of Thanksgiving, my wonderful Aunt Kristin (aka "Aunt Krissy") made a list of things she was thankful for on her blog, and encouraged her readers to do the same. I am one of those readers, and I obliged. So here I go. Things I am currently thankful for:
Apples and caramel dip. Mmmm. Apples are good, but let's face it, everything is better with a bit of refined sugar.
Fall leaves. I love walking outside to my car and hearing the "crunch" of the leaves (not of the bugs) under my feet.
The internet. (Kristin said this one, but I whole-heartedly agree.) Honestly, how cool is it that you can win a bet for a back massage in, like, 10 seconds, when you're arguing over how to spell "ulterior"? (Yes, I won.)
They are both pictures of Kennedy. And that little blue square with arms and legs? Yeah, that's Spongebob. If you look closely enough you can even see his 2 buck teeth.
My mom. She has always been supportive of everything I've ever wanted to do, and is someone I can be fun and goofy with. I love her.
Shoes. ... ... *sigh* ... ... ... ... Oh, I'm sorry. Where was I? Oh yes. What I'm thankful for.
My piece of crap car. It's a piece of junk. But it's paid for. And it gets me from point A to point B. Slowly. But surely.
The holidays. (Pretty much from Halloween until New Year's.) I love the excitement, the love, family closeness, decorations, smells, sights, sounds...just everything. I'm easy to please.
Justin. Even though he's SO stressed with school, work and band, he still finds time to spend with Kennedy and me. AND he only has 7 months left until he graduates!! (Nursing, for those of you who don't know.)
My job. Trust me, I'd prefer to not HAVE to work. But since I have to, I like where I work and I'm glad I have a job.
Church. Although I complain many Sundays that I'd rather just sleep, or read, or play, or relax, etc., once I actually am there, I usually love it. And so does Kennedy.
Sleep. Need I say more?
Girlfriends. Nothing is better than having a GNO (girl's night out) and just ranting, laughing, eating and reminiscing.
Kennedy. SUCH a happy, funny, smart, beautiful, clever, sweet little 4-year-old. She just lights up my life and keeps me laughing. And stressing. But mostly laughing.
Chocolate. Obviously. And, in case you were wondering, my "wanting to eat healthy" lasted for a whole 2 hours. Will power and I don't go together very well.
Your turn. What are you thankful for?
