Okay, I know I know. Today is really Sunday, but I'm kind of set on this "Silver Lining Saturday" thing, so deal with it! At least it's still technically the weekend, still time to get in my thankfulness post.
So, as Shaggy would say, on with the countdown:
I'm thankful for my family and my upbringing. My in-laws are just too weird, they put the "fun" in dysfunction. And sometimes we need to experience that dysfunction to appreciate the function. Thanks Mom! Dad! Gramma! Wombat! Hagrid! All y'all!
On that note, I'm thankful for my husband's Black Sheepness.
I'm thankful that my latest tutor student is a kid I actually like. You just never know with these tutor kids. Some can be rather bratty, or elitist, or rebellious, or high-maintenance, or [fill in the blank]. I try to develop rapport with all of them, and with some, that's more work than with others, especially with the one-on-one nature of tutoring. This latest kid's an easy one. I hope he kicks some serious entrance exam butt.
I'm thankful for the great weather we've been having. I'm not quite ready for all-cold-all-the-time just yet. Field Day at the elementary school was loads of fun in the sun (even though I was bitten several times by some sort of vampire bug, but that's for later, not for the thankfulness post).
I'm thankful that the Broncos won today. It was close. I really don't have that much of a direct interest in their record, but when they lose, the aforementioned hubby gets grumpy.
I'm thankful, once again, for my bicycle and my enjoyment in riding it. I did our monthy finances this week, we spent a whopping $40 on gas for the whole month of August.
And, I don't mean to be redundant, but I'm (once again) thankful for my blog friends. Such inspiration! Such intelligence! Such colorfulness! Thank you, Al Gore, for the internet *with sarcasm*.
Remember kids! "Keep your feet on the ground, and reach for the stars!" Uh.... That's Casey Kasem. A.k.a Shaggy? Anyone??
