Thankful Thursday, and an anniversary

Today I am thankful for...
  • the grace of God
  • my family and friends
  • my kinda cool Bubba's birthday on Saturday
  • my health
  • my job
  • my students and coworkers
  • our first day of testing going smoothly...only SIX more days of this mess (gag)
  • a return trip to our nation's beautiful capital coming up
  • Paul McDonald making it to the top 10 on American Idol!!! I loved his take on this song.
  • our "walking club" (made up of two whole members) making it THREE times this week...a new record!
  • cilantro...yum
  • sweet Ashley's first Thankful Thursday glad I got to meet this girl!
  • Lauren getting her giveaway off the ground and hacking another item off her 30 by 30 list...she's on a roll!
  • a reunion (finally!) planned with my college girls for this summer...absolutely can't wait
  • a roof over my head, clean water available whenever I want it, and electricity
  • my new, short haircut...I've actually started to like it, even though I've been kicked out of the ponytail club
  • the fact that nobody has run away screaming (yet) when approached with this
I'm also very thankful for my little blog, which came to life one year ago today. I started it in response to a comment of, "You're single with no kids. Do you even have anything to write about?" Why, yes...yes, I do.

I've written some posts I really like and some I don't love so much. I've shared happy times and a few very sad times. I've made some new friends and they follow my blog. People actually read the ridiculousness that spews forth from my mind. They don't judge me for making up words like ridiculousness. Some of them even leave comments, which make me far happier than they probably should. Perhaps I should pursue that in therapy.

This little project has proven to be much more fun than I ever imagined. I can't wait to see what the next year holds!

HAPPY WEEKEND, and thanks for reading!


  1. Happy One Year to you and your lovely blog! I along with many others enjoy reading about your wonderful little life! Thanks for sharing it with us all : )

  3. I am thankful for you blog too. I am happy to hear I was not the only one discouraged. Someone I really like told me,"I could never do a blog, I'm not vein enough to think what I say is that important." Nice I know.

    I love blogging. It has brought some truly amazing people into my life.
