Thankful Thursday

What a week. But why do I really say that? I guess its all the sickness we've had the last week. Very very rarely do we all come down sick within days of each other. Somebody almost always walks away unaffected. (And then the rest of us call that person names. Okay. Not really.)

What am I thankful for this week?

How about everything? It feels like that kind of a week.

I am thankful for smiles. My own. Because you know, it just feels so good to smile and mean it. It gives you a little heart lift. And occasionally it gives someone else one too.

I am thankful that right now I still have health insurance. Guess we better hit it hard while it is still provided for us. But I'm also thankful for doctors that take cash because I have to have something done that I will not let a government paid doctor do. They promised me scars and buckling. No thank you. Cash civilian doctor, here I come. Quality does trump quantity in some situations.

I am thankful that all four of us are now NOT sick. And I'm thankful that MM went to school today. Because yesterday? Well, she SAID she was sick and cried and all that. And mom made her stay in bed all day with no tv. Because she was sick. And sick people need to be in bed. Without tv. And thank goodness the rest of us had just been sick and done just that because it made the torture of making it through the day easier when I pointed that out every two seconds when it whined because THAT IS WHAT SICK PEOPLE DO.

I am thankful that all the paperwork is in and Hubs is all set to graduate in May and get his degree. He is thankful too. So much so that we are going out for steak and lobster to celebrate. (Only took 2 months of budgeting for! LOL!)

I am thankful that DS is well on his way to graduating boot camp, and his little-one-to-be is looking good on that ultrasound. Teri. Did you have to start the grandma trend? You know we are all in for it now. (Okay, so actually I'm jealous. I want to be a grandma. Just not yet. But really, I am looking forward to it. Bones, don't get any ideas. Finishing college first is a GOOD thing....(so is being married!)), just ask your dad. Who just graduated. See what I mean???

I am thankful for migraine meds because they are keeping me moving this. No idea what the trigger is. Maybe allergies in a new place? Just don't know.

I am thankful that my mom will be here next week! Yeah! And it just worked out that it will also be our Spring Break while she is here so she gets to spend more time with the kids.

This is already longer than intended so I'm going to stop here.

But I really could just keep on going...


  1. LOL I know I shouldn't be laughing, but seriously, what is it with kids when they're home sick? Mine try to pull that thing with me all the time too, they are sick and home from school but think they get to watch tv and play video games. As if. LOL

  2. I love your list! And it brought a smile to my face.
    Isn't this a new look you're sporting? I like it.
