Gratitude Girl

Can it be? If weeks fly by like this I will be muy prepared when it's my turn at the Thanksgiving Day table... I'll simply refer back to a random Thursday and state:

Upon reflection: On May 15 of this year, I was deeply thankful for (ok... I seriously, just paused and looked to either side of me for something to be happy about. At the very same moment Kate dumped her cereal and the thought of my mop popped my serene bubble. That being said...)

  1. My mop. Steam those germs away, baby.

  2. That my Luke has friends. The boy is becoming the popular kid. Doorbell rings nonstop and he screams, "It's probably for me again!"

  3. My alone time. I really do covet time to myself. I give better attention to my kids if I can have some Big K time.

  4. Wil loves his job. Since we have been through some really crappy times, I am SO thankful he goes to work with a smile. And he is so good at what he does.

  5. Comments. Validation on this silly blog is delish.

Was wondering if I could get my 5. (Props to Mindi ((who is my very most favorite, don't know personally, blog sistah)) for coming up with this idea) Just 5 people to say HEY who have not said HEY before. Please, if you have dropped the Hey in my reality all ready... um, CONTINUE, by all means. I'll come over to your blouse (my combo of blog and house-it sounds a little dirty though) and say Hello to you.

Sorry I'm not a new commenter...but a loyal one, eh? Alone time is a necessity! I look forward to it every day even though I only get it from about 10 pm to 12 am. And yay that Joel loves his job. That's great! I would copy your thankful thursday posts, but I've been a little blog happy lately. Love your blog!

Kris, you make me laugh! I am sorry about your bike and yeah for your sprinklers so that your backyard luxury won't perish. Maybe your hubby will go on a business trip again to find you with a brand new pink bike! And fairly soon after that nice slim thighs will follow then he will appreciate your bike! Enjoy your lawn!

I am going downtown on Wednesday so I can get your Windy City mix. How many bags do you want? Let me know before then. I'll mail it to you.
