Give Me The Grateful Life - Monday




So many things to be grateful for this Monday, where do I start....



  • (Sing it with me like the true bitches we are...) I have a new iPhone - na, na, na, na, na. Woo hoo! I'm grateful cause this new baby rocks! Shhhhh, don't tell anyone but now I'm kinda glad I dumped the old geezer in the toilet.
  • I'm grateful for crate training (oh yeah).
  • I'm grateful for the Gods smiling upon me Saturday night and sending BOTH of my kids to other people's houses for SLEEPOVERS! (That was a first and definitely will NOT be the last.)
  • I'm grateful for plumbers who know what the f**k they're doing (the first one didn't graduate plumber's remedial school.)
  • I'm grateful for new friends. Lots and lots of amazing new friends. (You know who you are.)

How about you? What are you grateful for this week? Come on, share the zen. I dare you.

I am grateful that I was able to wake up before my kids today and work out. I know it sounds like that should be a daily accomplishment, but when the kids wake up at 6:00 a.m., it's a bit challenging for a night owl like me.

i, too, am grateful for a competent plumber, who, in this case, was my husband.

it could have been BAD when the toilet started spraying water on saturday night.

I'm also grateful for my new iPhone and for Apple products in general...I love Apple TV too.

I'm grateful for finding the fabulous specialty food market in Salt Lake City that gave me awesome food porn all weekend.

I'm grateful that we have a good life and we aren't homeless like the poor people I saw this weekend.

I'm grateful that my son is starting to talk and his favorite word is COOL!

I am grateful that you encourage me to come up with something grateful on a Monday when I would rather procrastinate and be grateful on Fridays.

I am grateful for procrastination.

Oh, and I am grateful for delegating ... like delegating cleaning tasks to my children. Who ever invented delegating was a genius.

And I am grateful for teams ... like having a team of children cleaning my house on a Monday morning. I think teams were invented by the same person that invented delegating.

I am grateful for you, the kids, the dogs, our friends, and proud to be part of all the madness.

I'm grateful to finally be wearing sweatpants after 12 long hours of real clothes.

Oh, and cheddarwurst. I'm totally grateful for cheddarwurst right now.

Maggie, Dammit said...

Hmm.

It just occurred to me that the two things I'm grateful for today may go hand in hand....

I'm a new friend! Well, not really but I like to pretend people that don't know me think of me as a friend so I'll continue to believe you're talking about me. :)

JCK said...

I'm grateful for you. And speaking of grateful...I would be grateful if you would join me in welcoming The Philosopher Mom to California in 2 weeks. I'm organizing a dinner out. Except we have to go to Anaheim...I'll be emailing.

Don't mean to be a downer, but my health and my families health. Without it everything else is meaningless...

A Mom Two Boys said...

See, now I DEFINITELY need a new IPhone...

And to plan a trip to come visit you...when are we gonna make that happen?

Magpie said...

I love my iPhone. Love love love.
