Thankful but....

I know that this time of year everyone is posting about being thankful for this n that and that's how it should be, but speaking for myself I am thankful everyday for what I have or rather what I don't have...examples;

I'm thankful I have a new bedroom room set in the spare room and I'm thankful that my hubby chooses not to sleep with me and sleeps in the spare room while I recuperate.

I am thankful that my squirrely grandsons live 4 miles away from me and I'm thankful that they are way too busy to just drop in anytime.

Thankful for Diet Pepsi and equally thankful for the very small cans.

I'm thankful for Facebook and most importantly, I can get on there without people seeing me.

I am thankful for Vicodin AND very thankful for stool softener.

I am thankful for a 16 year old daughter who hates to cook and thankful for Hamburger Helper.

I am thankful for being so organized it drives my family nuts and thankful I've let that nonsense go.

I am thankful that I can give a sub. the opportunity to work for me and earn some Christmas money while I'm on leave and thankful that the vice principle called and said "hurry up and get better, we need someone to make fun of"...lol

and last but not least...

I am thankful for meeting and connecting to some wonderful blogging friends who just blow my mind with words, art and creativity....and thankful that you haven't deleted me yet!

Wishing everyone a peaceful and healthy Thanksgiving....and can't wait for all the Christmas blogs.


  1. Good morning Victoria....I don't know why "Victoria" just came out!!! You are such a riot; I am thankful for people like you in my life who do have such a great sense of humor. You have to working in education, n'est-ce pas? HAVE A RELAXING AND WONDERFUL WEEK!! Anita

  2. I am grateful I blogged my way to you so that I can have a giggle every time you post. I wish I was organized. Just ain't happening. You must be feeling better. I need a room to myself to get away from the snoring! Slept too late last nite and then the noise kept me awake so now I feel very sleepy and it is only mid-day. Took a little break from work to check out blogland. All work and no play isn't good for anyone. Plus, the weather is so nice -- it's a shame to sit inside 4 square walls all day long. My kids are afraid we won't have turkey since I am vegetarian. I don't do birds but will try to order one just for them. Sometimes one of the grocery stores does holiday dinners that you can order ahead of time and then I will do sides and pies. Hope you are having a good day. :) Tammy

  3. Dear Lovely Bun Bun,

    I hope you are on the mend and I wanted to say I am thankful for YOU. YOU put a smile on my face with your hilarity. I can always count on you for a chuckle.

    Happy Thanksgiving my dear.

    I pink puffy heart you.

    Love to you and yours,

  4. Hi Bunny: I am thankful that you are feeling better and I am thankful for you! Blessings to you this wonderful Thanksgiving Day! Love, Martha
