Evan's mom has me thinking about what I'm thankful for. Here's today's completely incongruent list.
That when my kids are sick, it's just a short-term virus and they will be perfectly healthy in just a few days.
That I have a job which allows me to volunteer in my son's classroom.
That the meds are working for my son and we had a positive parent/teacher/principal conference.
That the best educational advice I still get is from my high school guidance counselor, my mom!
That the sun is bright and the sky is blue!
That I have neighbors who know my name and say it kindly.
That there was no ice and I could wear my nice shoes for the first day of the semester.
That when my child wet the bed the other night, the child who was sharing the bed with him didn't punch him.
That the Christmas wreath in my family room looks good with Valentine's Day tinsel on it and will look even better with St. Patrick's Day tinsel.
That Yaya's news had me smiling for hours and hours: )
That my kids have contracted with the neighbors to shovel snow, and that the snow has come during school hours, and that I have earned $40 shoveling thus far this year.
That when I kindly (albeit insincerely) offered to go camping for our summer vacation, I was able to hide my dismay when everyone said yes.
And that MOST of my blogging/FB friends agreed with me that adults don't skip anymore because of ... well... physical attributes.
