Thankful Moments

It has been a long weekend.

I have been thankful for different things at different times.

I am very thankful that my Booga is not in any pain, and that it looks like she will make it back home (with help), which is where she wants to be, now, and when her time comes.

I was thankful for Pumpkin Muffin staying by my sister's house and having only two kids for a bit.  It seems to lower the decibel level considerably in the house.

I was thankful when my Pumpkin Muffin came home, because the house was too quiet without her.

I was thankful for the time Fuzzy's friend spent here at the house and the time that Fuzzy spent over at their house!

I was, and still am, thankful for Hammer being very attentive to my feelings, and considerate of my birthday all weekend.  It is the little things that matter, and he really seems to get that.

I am very thankful for my birthday presents, especially my new Keurig coffee maker that makes piping hot cups of Green Mountain coffee that is to die for!  Yum!

I am thankful that my parents are here, living in our same house, albeit upstairs in their own apartment space.  I am so happy that they are here to share in everything that goes on in our lives, day to day. 

I am thankful that hubby started the process of putting up the outdoor Christmas decorations, and did the laundry this weekend.

I am thankful that today is Libby's 5th birthday and that each and every day she licks me and loves me, our family, and the cats!  Even though 5 years should mean she is calmer, I am glad that she is still a crazy puppy!

I am thankful that the Jets won today, and that (for right now) the Giants are winning, too.

I am thankful that our microwave is apparently not broken and reset just now as we unplugged it!  Yay!

I am very, very, thankful that we began our Christmas shopping and should be done very soon! 

I am so very thankful for all your good wishes and prayers for Booga and myself and my family.  J-land is a wonderful place to be!

be well,
Dawn

Parent living upstairs being able to enjoy you and your family must be comforting.  Your Green Mountain Coffee sounds good.  :)

I'm thankful that I can shop on the internet!!  Went out for a few hours on Friday with my 3 year old...  He was actually okay, but maneuvering around all those people with a stroller is quite the challenge!!  Julie :)
