Today I am thankful...
For a few beautiful warm fall days, to play outside and wear my flip-flops again.
For children in my home who are still young enough to squeal with joy when the Ta rget Christmas toy catalog comes in the mail.
For a wonderful partner-in-crime at work who totally gets me. And who knows that somedays I'm a little bit grumpy when I have no reason to be, and doesn't hold it against me. (And who does all the talking for me when I'm losing my voice.)
For rhythm sticks and praise music with preschoolers, which could be the best cure for the grumpies ever.
For a best friend who calls just to tell me that she misses me.
For Wednesday night Gilmore Girls with Ally, even if it only happens once a month these days.
For clean sheet night.
And for giving myself permission to write this post in a list so I can go to bed early.
