early Saturday - what I am grateful for right now

1. that I can toss each of my pups an apple to keep them occupied & fed a snack ; )

2. that last night a fellow employee of Eldest Daughter's offering us a ride home seeing us stocking up on a little too many groceries to haul home walking -- strike is supposed to happen Monday

3. that if they do indeed strike, Eldest Daughter will get paid some - not her entire usual paycheck - which sadly was supposed to be 40 hours next week, but enough we won't sink during the strike

Hello Every Mama

Just thought I'd do a general shout out, see how everyone's doing.

Little Dude & I are pulling a long home school day & I am eager for him to finish so I can toss some cookie dough in the oven and eat some ooey gooey choco chip cookies. I have my Pandora on & am enjoying the mix of oldies & new stuff. Eldest daughter is at work until 8 pm and I have no real concept of what dinner will look like. Mr Right just planned a camping weekend for him, me, the youngest offspring & the puppies. I am happy & feeling great.

Thursday Grat-a-tat-tat!!!

1. easy peasy breakfast with tasty bars which Mr Right brought over during the power outages

2. having the library down our street so we can quickly, easily pick up the suggested readings for my Little Prince's lessons

3. Eldest Daughter receiving extra shifts at work this week

4. Mr Right's wonderful offer to buy whichever "mid to high end" (his words) puppy food I want for my boys - so I have done my research on this

Wednesday on my Way to the Weekend Gratitudes

1. time apart = more time for discussions, details, planning & understanding

2. I am so grateful that all of our children are looking forward to the big changes coming our way

3. I am grateful Little Dude and I have been discussing when he will go back to public school & it keeps getting easier for him to see the positive - we are now saying he will finish this year -- 3rd & 4th grade at home then go to 5th grade so he won't be the new kid in middle school, plus he will have a "sister" in middle school just a year ahead of him so that will be helpful

Tuesdays, too

1. I am grateful for the work we are doing -- he is persistent, patient & particular -- if I say "don't work too late," he reminds me the positive way to phrase that could have been "Darling Mr Right, thank you for working late, remember to take care of yourself also."

2. Abreva! I got a fever blister and the very 1st day (yesterday!) I bought the stuff -- so far it hasn't bothered me quite so much & it does look like it's healing already! I am not big on meds, but I didn't want to be dealing with a fever blister at all.
