Give Me The Grateful Life - Monday


Hello blogger friends!
I decided to stop by and share a little gratitude with you this beautiful Monday.


 Here's what I'm grateful for today:


  1. I'm grateful to be spending less time in front of the computer and to feel my sanity slowly returning.
  2. I'm grateful for spending the afternoon shopping for Halloween costumes and for the laugh I had upon seeing my son as a pimped out Mr. MoneyBags.  Bling!  Bling!
  3. I'm grateful for not having to pull another all-nighter for my writing class tomorrow.  I'm way too old for that shit.
  4. I'm grateful my daughter is still rational and lovely despite her impending hormonal implosion which is due any day now.
  5. I'm grateful for the blogger friends that still have me in their reader despite my abrupt decision to go AWOL.  Anyone?  Anyone?
What are you guys grateful for this Monday?
Check in and say hi.

I miss you all and hope you're well.
Be back soon.

I am grateful for my real life friend who e-mails me all day and keeps me sane. She also gives my liquor and gets me to buy the clothes she sells.

I'm grateful for the chocolate ice cream I'm enjoying right now after a full day of single parenting (hubby's out of town). I'm grateful kids went to bed on time. And I'm grateful my in-laws are driving to Utah from Colorado for Thanksgiving and "transporting" lots of delicious beverages for us!

I thought I was grateful that I had only one daughter to steer through puberty, but my almost 12-year-old boy is much more angst-ridden and PMSsy than she ever was. Help!

I'm grateful you're back...I was going to give you a couple more days then fire off an e-mail! :-D Spending time doing other things is always good!!!

I'm grateful for the cold beer that is sitting next to me (half gone!), the cool weather, and I'm grateful that gas went down to 162 yen per liter (X 3 = per gallon) so I can fill up tomorrow and I'm grateful for the leftovers in my fridge so I don't have to do much cooking tonight!!

Have a good Tuesday...it was pretty good over here!!

I'm grateful that Andy and I are back on the same page and making a move regarding HRH's education.

I am so happy to see a smile on my boy's face after just visiting his once and future school.

I am inordinately grateful to said school for deciding to start up a kindergarten program this year.

I am beyond words grateful that they have an opening and are welcoming him back with open arms.

And I'm grateful that my BBF, Fran came up in my blogroll.

Hey, MM...

Just stopping by to say hello... Hope you're digging your class and I wholeheartedly support your need to break away from the computer and regain a grip on the real world. I haven't been doing this very long at all and already I'm starting to twitch... I think you're just one step ahead of the rest of us making a break for it...

Halloween Wishes To You!

XO
