What's There to Be Thankful For?


While procrastinating taking a break from my zillion assignments I stumbled upon this beautiful blog, seriously it is really lovely to look at, you should check it out. Not only is Confessions of a Craft Addict pretty it's a good read too. The most recent post is where the Thankful for 30 pic above came from; what's this all about? Well it's pretty self-explanatory, what are you thankful for? For every day in November, yep there are 30, I'll write down something I'm thankful for. I've found myself whining about school a lot lately so this will force me to be positive for at least 30 seconds of every day.

Okay since it's the second of November I'll think of two things.
1. I'm thankful that Mike has shingles and I don't. I know, that wasn't very nice. Let's try this again.
1. I'm thankful the police made the creeps (that is putting it VERY nicely) across the street get rid of their KKK jack-o-lantern (No I'm not kidding. Just thinking about it makes my heart start pounding all over again) and I'm thankful that everyone who has heard about it has reacted with utter disgust. I have good peeps in my world.

2. I'm thankful that I have a husband who is as fabulous as Mike, without his support I would not be living my dream of attending teachers college at 30 years old. Three cheers for shingle boy!

Poor Shingle boy! I thought shingles only happened to old people? Dear me.

I cannot BELIEVE your neighbours are still stuck in the stone age. How do people like that actually still exist? I hope you threw a rotten pumpkin at them.

Thanks for playing along and for the kind words about my blog!

My husband had shingles the first year of law school. It was a relatively mild case but he still didn't exactly enjoy it. And I can't believe you have neighbors like that! Oh my word!

My husbands shingles were relatively mild too, I can't imagine how people with terrible cases deal.

As for the neighbours, yes they are a piece of work. It's bizarre isn't it? I know that people like that are out there but living across the street from me in suburbia?! ick. Makes my skin crawl just thinking of it...

GREAT blog idea--gonna steal it. It will encourage me to at least post a short entry every day. Will start on 15th and carry it on to just the week or so before Christmas. Yay!
Love the shingle boy comment. How is scabby, anyway?
