Give Me The Grateful Life - Monday

K, so I can't offer a giveaway every week but I can offer you eternal bliss if you show me your gratitude. Really. Try it.

Here's mine...

  1. I'm grateful for television and video games as I try to prepare for our trip.
  2. I'm grateful for waking up in time to push my puppy outside before she vomited on my carpet.
  3. I'm grateful for music and headphones.
  4. I'm grateful for NPR's "This American Life".
  5. I'm grateful for people who understand sarcasm.

Please tell me what your grateful for in your comments. Upon my return from Japan, I'll figure out Mr. Linky but he wasn't cooperating today, and frankly, gratitude I got, patience I'm a little short on.

Have a great rest of your Monday!

I'm grateful (really and truly) for Merlot Mom, who is not just a Blogger Extraordinaire, but a Person Worthy of Friendship, and a helluva writer besides.
I'm grateful for my laptop and my brain and the fact that I can use the two to connect with lots and lots of incredible people.

I am grateful that my SIL came and cleaned my house today. And that I could afford to pay her, because she needs the money and I need a clean house.
And I am grateful that I have a bottle of mudslide chilling in the freezer.

Wait a minute, weren't we grateful for something last week??!!?

I'm grateful that I didn't make a smarmy comment on your previous post about being too drunk to do a grateful Monday post, cuz you were busy pushing the PUBLISH button when I was busy pushing the ALMOST SMARMY COMMENT button on the previous post.

2. sushi
3. sleeping children
4. children that are almost over their jetlag
5. time to read your blog

Headless Mom said...

I am grateful that:
-school starts in less than a week
-I can bitch with you about our mom situation but still be understood that I love my kids beyond belief
-that my husband and I get to go on a cruise next weekend without the littles
-that my hormonal, cranky older goes to college next week.

I could go on but I need to save some for next week, just in case the s*** hits the fan.

As usual, I'm a day late and a dollar short, but...

I am so grateful I haven't killed anyone yet. And that I've got an appointment with a new doctor next month WHO HAD BETTER DAMN WELL TEST MY HORMONE LEVELS AND GIVE ME SOMETHING FOR THEM.

Because I'm so calm and collected that way.
