Day 24

I had a longish post planned for this evening, but The Man and I decided to watch Amazing Grace. , which was inspirational and informative and I highly recommend it. But now it's late and I am tired so just another quick list from me: Today I am thankful for:
  • Dictionary.com - which is also Thesaurus.com, and Reference.com. I am such a word nerd and I just love this site. I am there everyday: To make sure I am using a word correctly, to find another word, to check out the word of the day, or to discover the meaning of something I have read on one of your blogs. I think this really solidifies my dork status, you know, in case there was some debate.
  • Sunday Afternoon Naps
  • Watching Ben & Clara run (crawl? knee-walk?) after each other laughing and screeching with glee. It's a dream come true for me to see my children so completely enjoying each other's company, even for a few moments.
  • DVR-Really isn't this just the greatest invention? Before we had this I would rush through dinner and plop myself in front of the TV on the night of my favorite show, obnoxiously shushing any family member brave enough to speak to me - or each other - during the episode. Our new system is a vast improvement.
  • A post it note I found on my fridge. Allie put it there before she went to bed. It says: Mommy, Daddy. I heart U. Allison. Sigh - The happy kind.
  • A wonderful Thanksgiving weekend spent with my family, which has sadly come to an end. Sigh - The unhappy kind.
Ya know, this thankful thing gets easier the more you do it. I guess that was the point, wasn't it?

I'm sad this Thanksgiving weekend is over too...

I am so hopeful that my daughter will still leave me post it notes at Allison's age. As sweet as my boys are, they don't leave me notes like that anymore... :(

oh that note! are you framing it? or at least scrapbooking it?

Dictionary.com and DVR....yes, thank you.

(In addition to the obvious blessings that I kiss each day).

Yep, DVR ranks right up there with one of the greatest inventions ever...

DVR! Josh and I joke that we'd have been divorced AGES ago without it. LOL. Conflicting time schedules and arguing over who should entertain the kids while the other person lazily watches his or her favorite programs...no thank you! LOL.

Good things, like holiday weekends, always seem to come to a screeching end way before I am ready to re-enter reality.
Dictionary.com--I am going to have to check this out. I could, like, actually appear smarter...
By the way, although I have not been able to comment much I have really enjoyed reading your month of posts and what you are thankful for.
Oh, I can't wait until mine are old enough, or mature enough I should say, to leave such great notes. I am sure you treasure it.
