Ok, I give.  I’m done with this Everyday Thankfulness crap.  Not the actual being thankful part, just the part where I write about it everyday.  Obviously I suck at that part.  And I decided that about a week ago and just chose not to write about it because I was being rebellious.  Yeah, that’s me….rebelling against myself.  But you know […]

Our Pets

Alright, let’s catch up on another post that should have been done days ago.  Today, which is last Friday for anyone out there keeping score, I’ve chosen to be thankful for our pets.  Why? Well because even though they are kind of a pain in the bahookie, they bring a certain joy to our lives that we would be sorely […]

The To-Do List

I’ve decided that this whole “thankful every day” thing is only proving that I can’t keep up with posting something every single day.  Apparently I’m inept at writing something each day…other than my To-Do List that is.   So this ‘thankful’, which I think was supposed to be posted last…Thursday, (geez, I really do suck at this) is for my […]


I am so thankful for hockey today! At this moment I am sitting in my car, waiting for my son to get done with wrestling team pictures, listening to my Flyers beat the Penguins. Let me just say that again: the Flyers are beating the Penguins. That is epic. Because my Flyers have really sucked so far this season, badly. […]


Good gravy, I’m late on posts.  Again.  OK…today, which is yesterday but let’s not dwell on that, I am thankful for coffee.  No, I already wrote about that.  For my kids.  No, covered that.  For Michael.  Can’t write that one yet…saving that one.  This shouldn’t be difficult because I have a freakin’ ton of stuff to be thankful for…it’s finding […]


So now that I’m caught up with my days of posting, my ‘thankful’ for today is sweatpants. Yes, after I have just written multiple posts about much more thoughtful and meaningful things, today I’m going for a blessedly simple one. Sweatpants are one of God’s gifts and if I could get away with it I would wear them everyday. That’s […]


And here is what should have been posted yesterday:   My middle-kid…this is what I’m thankful for today.  I’ve posted about Abby and Wyatt but I’ve saved Kate for last.  Mostly because she is always in the middle, whether we start with oldest or youngest.  So today I changed it up. Our first girl.  Our first realization that someday we […]


So, I’m late with my daily posting…shocking, I know.  Here is what I should have posted on Saturday:   Today, which is Saturday and not Monday, I am thankful for my first born kid.  I don’t know if any of you know this, but with your first kid, you really don’t have a clue what your doing.  Seriously.  It’s a […]


My youngest child…how shall I describe the reasons why I’m thankful for this kid?  Well, it can be difficult to explain because somedays she does drive me up the wall and then over the edge.  Like this morning….and pretty much every morning this week. Abby is stubborn to a fault, snarky and quick-witted, sharp as a tack, independent, strong-willed and […]

Our family language

Languages…that’s what I’m thankful for today.  Sounds pretty freakin’ odd, doesn’t it?  Yeah, well…that’s pretty much par for course with me.  What I mean is that we all have our own languages, or words, or slang, that we speak with those closest to us.  That little shorthand that you use to talk to you best bud, or the secret words […]
