Thankful Thursday

I know it's time for me to start doing these again when I find myself feeling negative all the time and not having anything nice to say.

No matter how crappy my week is going or the stress I am feeling over Joe's job situation, there are always things to be thankful for.

Always.

Here are a few I managed to think of for this week.

I am thankful for blogger friends. Especially those who hold give-aways! :) Last week Ashley had a give away to win one of these very cool wristlets from Vera Bradley and I won! It came this weekend and it is so cute. I love it. Thanks Ashley!



I am thankful that there are only 7 days left until the next season of So You Think You Can Dance! AND Only 26 more days until the new Season of Dancing With the Stars. Both shows at the same time!! I am so excited! Some of their results shows are going to overlap and I don't know how I will choose which one to watch. Thank goodness for the DVR!


And yes. I am a huge dork.



I am thankful for Brownies. Enough said.
(Thanks Dad)



I am thankful my toe has started feeling better. I'm still limping but not nearly as badly as I was.


I am thankful for my husband.

That last one was not easy to write, given the week that we have been having. The stress of him not having a job is getting to us. There has been fighting. It is tiring.

But ever since we moved into the new apartment he has taken over all of the housework. The dishes. The laundry. The vacuuming. Even the dinner making. Since I broke my toe almost 2 weeks ago I haven't had to lift even so much as a finger.

I am very lucky to have him. And I am thankful for that.


I'm cracking up over this. Heh.

What are you thankful for?

The song that's playing right now is called "I'm Alive" and it's sung by Kenny Chesney(oh how I heart Kenny Chesney) and Dave Matthews. This song has gotten me through some very hard moments this week. Here are the lyrics:

So damn easy to say that life’s so hard
Everybody’s got their share of battle scars
As for me I’d like to thank my lucky stars that
I’m alive, and well

It’d be easy to add up all the pain
And all the dreams you sat and watched go up in flames
Dwell on the wreckage as it smolders in the rain
But not me, I’m alive

And today you know that’s good enough for me
Breathin' in and out's a blessin' can’t you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life
And I’m alive, and well
I’m alive, and well

Stars are dancin’ on the water here tonight
It’s good for the soul, when there’s not a soul in sight
But this boat has caught its wind and brought me back to life
Now I’m alive, and well

And today you know that’s good enough for me
Breathin' in and out's a blessing can’t you see
Today is the first day of the rest of my life
Now I’m alive, and well
Yeah I’m alive, and well

These are good things.
I am glad my neighbor did not kill me when my dog went after her dog and slipped out of his collar.

I'm thankful that my child is sleeping...sure it's melatonin induced but she sleeps so she can cope...it was getting ugly.
