November Thanksgiving

Day 18

Today I’m thankful that the heavy wooden shelf with the sharp corners (narrowly) missed my head as it fell while I was putting clothes away.

Sometimes a few inches can be the difference between a sigh of relief and a trip to the ER.

Day 17

Today I’m thankful for stupid awesome coincidences that work out for my benefit.  I ran out of my favorite face soap yesterday (sad teary face).  I also got a coupon in my email for said face soap yesterday (happy face!).  I still didn’t know when I was going to be able to make the trip to the store that sells my favorite face soap, but then we went to dinner at a restaurant my brother picked out for his birthday (Happy Birthday Jon!) and 30 feet from the restaurant?  Was the store that sells my face soap.

Score.

Day 16

“Today I’m thankful for my sore muscles because they remind me that I am healthy and able-bodied!”

I stole that from a friend because it’s so true.  My personal trainer just about killed me last night.  I needed it.

Day 15

Today I am thankful for XM radio.  My free trial ended today, so I was forced to realize the extent to which having so many stations at my fingers improves my 50-minute morning commute.  I renewed.  All is well.

Day 14

Today I am thankful for Starbucks.  Because the morning after one of those nights where my son decides that sleep is for weenies, I need that extra little kick to start my day.  My cherished mocha coconut frappuccino isn’t available this time of year, but on a day like today I’ll certainly take a plain old mocha frappuccino or a soy peppermint mocha … mmmm.

Day 13

Today, I am thankful for my immune system.  I’m glad that I am not prone to getting colds or illnesses very often.  Because I have one right now (Thanks, Koren) and I’ve had a headache for 2 days due to the pressure in my sinuses.  It sucks and it’s turning me into a total wimp.  But fortunately for me, this usually only happens about once every year or so.

Day 12

Today, I’m thankful for my daughter’s friends.  She has such a great kindergarten class with great little kids.  Today is the birthday party of her new “best friend” from class, who also happens to live down the street from us.  These two are so cute together, giggling and having a good time.  I love that she makes friends easily and I love watching her enjoy time with them.
