This year, I’m thankful…

…that I didn’t kill my husband during Thanksgiving preparations! 😛

In about six hours, S’s best friend arrives from Ireland, so in addition to cleaning and cooking for Thanksgiving dinner, we were also trying to finish our guest room remodel.  (The guest room is the room that we expanded the bathroom into, so it’s been a construction zone in there since October.)  I know, we’re crazy…but this is how we roll.  Nothing like house guests to motivate finishing a project! 😉

Not only did S finish the bedroom, but he also helped me clean (vacuumed the whole house, I HATE vacuuming, lol), cooked the turkey, and was the perfect host as always.  We had a wonderful day with my family, and I was reminded once again, how lucky I am to have him.  We definitely don’t always see eye to eye 😉 but at the end of the day, I know that he will always be there for me.

So, I know that I’m a little late in sharing my Thanksgiving thanks, but I want God and the universe to know how much I appreciate what I have.  This year, I’m thankful for…

  • my husband, who knows when I need a hug or a kick in the pants, and always knows which I need when 😉
  • my parents, for everything (but most recently for all the cooking and cleaning they did yesterday)
  • my brothers, grandfather, aunts, uncles and cousins, for reminding me how fun, crazy, and wonderful my family can be
  • my home, for providing us with a place to welcome family and friends, and making them feel as comfortable as if they were in their own home
  • my furbabies, for giving me someone to love, cuddle with, and take care of (and for proving what a softie S can be ;-))
  • my job, for allowing me to learn new things, meet new people (and pay the bills!)
  • my and S’s health (as I write this post, I’m watching a Dr. Oz special on free clinics, and I feel very blessed that we can afford to buy the insurance that keeps us healthy)

And last but not least, I’m thankful to the doctors, nurses, and drugs (!), that will hopefully soon help me to have one more reason to give thanks.  Happy holiday season everybody!  (((((hugs!)))))
