Give Me the Grateful Life - Monday

And here we are again, another week, another mountain of mundanity reason to be grateful!
(Mundanity really is a word - I looked it up.)

I'm feeling a bit of the "what the hell happened to my weekend" blues, so I'm gonna dig right in in an attempt to gain perspective and improve my mood.
  1. I am grateful that my husband came back from his business trips, even if only for a few days, so he could take on some of the carpooling because he's nice to have around.  ;)
  2. I am grateful for the groomer who gave our dogs a much needed bath.
  3. I am grateful for the rain.
  4. I am grateful for my iPod and exercise bike - they are incredible stress relievers.
  5. And, oh yes, I am grateful for PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA! YAAAAAAAAY!
Okay, that did help my mood.  This gratitude stuff works!

What are you grateful for this week?  There's gotta be something...

I am grateful for my first born back in school today.

I am grateful for my second born testing for Kindergarten for next year.

I am grateful that the new school year is less than 8 months away?

Now if I can just find a gradeschool that takes a 3 y/o...

Oh, and Headless mom made me laugh. That is good.

I am grateful for blogging, because otherwise I would have to come up with more creative ways to cause trouble.

I am grateful for the three margaritas I had last night, and the fact that being out in public with adults makes me a much better mother the next day.
