Thankful Thursday

Just a few of the things I am thankful for this fine Thursday (once again inspired by Shauna at O, Pish Posh!):

Mr. Pneumonia HAS LEFT DA HOUSE! My doctor ordered a chest x-ray early next week just to make sure everything is OK, though.

Amelia had a positive ear tubes recheck on Monday and does not go back to the ENT specialist for 6 more months.

Purity Heavenly Hawaiian ice cream. I have a strong recurring theme of margaritas (and martinis), boobs, and ice cream in this blog with a dose of Target and Britney Spears thrown in for good measure. Oh, and poop. Poop, the universal topic that brings all parents together.

The way Caitlin says “Your turn mommy!” after she says grace before supper, uh, when we remember to say grace.

Amelia’s current love affair with my purses. She likes to grab my purse, sling it over her shoulder, and toddle toward the back door like she is going out on the town.

The free kitchen play set my boss is giving us. FREE large toy! Big plastic play center for the girls! Yippeee! I’ve already cleared a space for it downstairs in the bonus/dog room. Now if I catch the dogs pretending to cook, I’ll post a photo on Flickr.

My mother buying the girls matching lime green monogrammed cooking aprons from Williams-Son0ma.

My husband’s unwavering ability to remain calm in situations wherein I commence to freaking out and seeking hard liquor or at least a jumbo bottle of Tylenol.

Sprayway glass cleaner. Fingerprints and dog nose prints be gone!

Real Crayola crayons given away to kiddos at restaurants such as this one.

My co-worker who made me laugh today by calling me just to let me know Lynyrd Skynyrd tickets were on sale for $10.

    Pea did something (sort of) similar to the purse thing today. Except instead of a purse, it was my bra.

  2. mamatulip says:

    Yahoo! I’m so glad to hear about Amelia’s positive ear re-check. AND that your pneumonia is GONE!!!!

  3. Mrs. Flinger says:

    SO glad to hear you’re feeling better!! YEY!!! And good news on the tubes. (And the Lynyrd Skynyrd tickets) heh.

  4. Renee says:

    Yeah! for the pneumonia leaving town and healthy kiddie ears!
    And for the ice cream, and free toys and well . . everything on the list.

  5. Blonde Mom says:


    The cool thing is my mom ordered them online at Williams Sonoma and I swear they arrived on her front doorstep two days later. AWESOME! 🙂 Now only if I can teach my girls to cook.


  6. Library Mama says:

    You are so good at these lists!

    I’m still learning.

    I haven’t been around in a while. Main Man isn’t feeling well – nothing serious, but you know, the world sort of stops when the husband is sick, doesn’t it – so I’ve been pretty busy.

    So glad you’re feeling better!
