Thankful Thursday: 2/23

I’m having a hard time thinking about what I am not thankful for today!

  1. My kids.  Each and every one of them.  Today though, specifically the oldest.  Isaiah will be 15 next month and lucky for me will still give me a hug and tell me that he loves me!  He is such a wonderful young man and I am just so lucky to be his step mama.
  2. My job.  I am allowed to be a little bit creative, a little bit silly, use my education and background with just a pinch of professionalism!
  3. My co-workers.  When I was sick last Saturday and supposed to work, they all chipped in to take care of my part so that I could stay in bed.  They didn’t make me feel guilty at all, not for one second.
  4. My new home.  In just 1 week we will be closing on our house and will officially be home-owners.  Every single time I think about it, tears come to my eyes.
  5. Facebook.  Being able to put pictures of the items that I don’t want to move with me on Facebook.  Then my friends and family can see what I am getting rid of and tell me instantly that they are interested!  Life changing.
  6. Recycling.  I am a little crazy with the recycling.  My bin is ALWAYS full, when I move I am going to have to get 2 bins again.  Plus, my city does another kind of recycling with these special bags where you can donates clothes, housewares, appliances and toys.  Again when moving, life changing!
  7. E-books.  I LOVE real life books.  However, e-books are my jam when I am working out!!  I love being able to read while I am on the arc trainer or treadmill and just can’t do it with a paperback or hardcover.
  8. Planning.  Yesterday I looked through my freezer at all of the things that I have purchased and would rather not move with me.  I made a meal plan for the next 9 days accordingly.  Win-win, I don’t have to go out and shop for other ingredients and I don’t have to move a bunch of frozen food!

What are you Thankful for Today??
