Thankful Thursday

Wow, Thursday already!  Here are my Thankfuls...

1.     My family.  They are my life force, keeping me going!

2.     Boy Scouts.  I am so happy what it brings to each of my children!  For Hammer, it brings an opportunity to step out of comfort zone, and to socialize!  For Fuzzy, it helps him to learn and hone his leadership skills.  For Pumpkin, it is giving her the educational opportunities that she craved. 

3.     Coffee.  Thank the stars that Green Mountain finally got our K-cups to us!  Yay!  (I am drinking a lovely cup of Hazelnut right now... ahhhhh yum!)

4.     Russ.  Thank you for bringing I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER? to my attention, and thus, to this blog for all to enjoy!!!  Yay!  Except for Gaz, who hates cats.  LOL 

5.     And, for all the great people I have met in online (including the two above), your support and friendship has meant so much, especially this crazy year!

                         

Traci, over at My life as a transplanted Yankee, put up a list of Thirteen today also.  Hers was about homeschooling... I don't have 13 reasons... so...

I am going to list Thirteen Catalogs that I love to get in the mail!  This is the season where you are bombarded with them for holiday shopping.

1.     Land's End  (great classic styles and quality)
2.     ABC Catalog (fun and inexpensive!)
3.     Hammacher Schlemmer (love the gadgety stuff!)
4.     Herrington (well tested and good quality)
5.     Sharper Image (more gadgets!)
6.     Home Improvements (interesting householdy things)
7.     Home Decorators  (I just sigh at everything I want, lol)
8.     Solutions (all kinds of cool cleaning things & gadgets)
9.     Wireless (great nostalgic tv items & fun things)
10.    Lillian Vernon (who doesn't like to browse that catalog?)
11.     Frontgate (lots of expensive stuff I can't afford. Ever)
12.    Harry & David (food stuff, yummy)
13.     Computer Gear (great science, gaming, and geeky stuff!)

Okay... that was fun!

I am feeling a bit better... (shhhh, don't tell anyone or say it too loud... I don't want the Lupus or RA to hear... lol)

I hope you are all having a great Thankful day!

be well,
Dawn

I just love these cats.  The first time I visited the Cat-site, I laughed till I had tears rolling down my face.  Great Thankfuls, need to go do mine.  I've been kinda postless lately.  I don't get many catalogues in the mail, but that's okay, I can't afford anything anyway. :(

You know, Dawn I just realized what a gift you have - no matter what little piece of personal hell life has you in, I've yet to hear you complain, whine, dwell on negatives, things you have every right to do.  Your ability to talk about all the wonderful, sweet positive things in your life, the people you love who no doubt adore you, this is truly a special blessing, I'm complimented to know you even a little.  So you like hazelnut coffee too, eh? lol ah yes.... XOXO CATHY

My Hubby just told me that the mailman would be the first to know if anything ever happened to us because after two days the mail box would be overflowing because of all my catalogs and magazines! :)
