I realize this is blog post cheating but I'm feeling rather grateful today because things have gone all right instead of all wrong. I hope for a day like this for all of you. I hope for a YEAR like this for you all.
What I'm thankful for right this very second:
cotton clothing (to include jeggings and holey socks)
Max & Ruby DVDs
friendly neighbors who offer up their staplers
already sliced up vegetables from Giant
apricot leaves still on trees
sunshine splitting time between backyard and my living room
independent play (lasting minutes but they are beautiful and interesting)
Sarah Mac's 'Wintersong'
Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving
Grayson telling me, "I am taking good care of you, Abby, and Sadie while Daddy is away."
cocoa butter lip balm
Abby asking me to rock her for a "long time with no shinging Mommy."
Hubby's emails and IMs
scheduled free time; the right to keep it simple
Grayson and Abby's new babysitter who I wish I could hire on full-time
seeing the moon at 4:30pm
other military spouses who just know
early bed times
sandwiches for dinner
readers, followers, commenters, no commenters, you.
Be back with a real post tonight. Kids will succumb to their delirium at some point. If not, there's always the treadmill. If Sadie can do it...
