Wow. There is so much to be thankful for. Here are a few of the things I think of as I’m getting ready to head to bed.
Thankful that Aidyn came out of surgery and the latest report is that she is doing well. They are of course still waiting on the results of the tumor, but she is out of ICU and recovery seems to be going good, some pain of course but she is a trooper. Thanks for praying and please continue to do so. Specific prayer requests can be found on Aidyn’s blog.
Thankful for awesome friends and family. There are so many blessings in my life right now. I feel like I’ve been praying for great girlfriends for years, pretty much since moving to CO, and while I’ve always had one or two, this year I’ve got a wonderful group of women who encourage and support me and listen to all the stuff going on in my life. They even get excited for Stephan and his potty training successes! And where would we be without family? I’ve got a MIL who makes dinner for us once a week, who also takes care of Stephan once a week with help from my FIL, a mom and dad who let me chat them up on the phone and also get excited for Stephan and talk to him as much as a 2yo will on the phone. Brothers and a sister who visit or chat or play games online. I am so truly blessed.
Thankful for a wonderful hubby. He’s always supportive and doing things for me. Leaves a card when he knows I might need some encouragement, lets me call and vent during the day, takes time for me, does the dishes and a few other chores. I’m a lucky woman.
Thankful Stephan is such a great boy. He’s got his “terrible twos” moments, but what toddler doesn’t? Overall, he’s a great kid and brings so much joy into my life. I’m also thankful for awesome childcare. When I’m off to work I don’t ever worry about how he’s doing. I know he’s having fun and getting lots of love.
Thankful that my paycheck looks like it might be right this month. I’m still waiting on figuring out some of my paycheck nightmares, but I think this month might at least be right. Hopefully, all the other details will work themselves out soon.
Thankful that everyone enjoyed my pie and ice cream. Stephan was a great help yesterday. He helped peel, core and slice the apples with my fabulous gizmo and then we stirred them all up with the sugar, flour, cinnamon & nutmeg and the pie turned out delish! The accompaning vanilla ice cream also turned out good. I didn’t get a picture of the goodness together on a plate, but maybe tomorrow.
Thankful we might be able to start putting some money in savings. Gas prices are going down and my paychecks should finally be right and that should mean a little extra to start saving.
Thankful gas prices continue to D.R.O.P. I’m amazed that they are nearing the $1.50 mark and couldn’t be happier about that. I just hope they’re not going to skyrocket again soon.
Thankful for my home, my car and my job.
Thankful for YOU, that you care enough to read my blog … about the mundane details of my life.
