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.

Day 10

Today, I’m thankful that the TERMITES that were recently discovered in our yard have not yet made it into our house, and that we were able to take preventative measures to ensure that they DON’T get in.

Day 9

Today I’m thankful for my housekeepers.  Even though I have to rush around like a crazy person the day before to get everything straightened before they come, at least I don’t have to THEN rush around doing the actual scrubbing, mopping and vacuuming too.  Because let’s be honest.  If I did?  It simply wouldn’t get done.  Instead, I come home to a sparkling house that looks like somebody waived a magic wand over it.  I love Thursdays.

Funny story… I recently discovered that for the last 5 years, I’ve had my housekeeper’s name wrong.  Like, completely WRONG.  I have no idea where I got the idea that her last name was Fuentes.  She finally corrected me.  But what’s even funnier?  I’m not the only one who had her name wrong.  And the other client?  ALSO thought her last name was Fuentes.

It’s a weird world.
