I can definitely tell that school is back in session! WE have all fallen ill this week and was not sure if I would be able to get this post up this week! Alas the kids are playing, some fevers have broken and I might just make it!
This week has been just getting back in to the routine of things after two weeks off! I am thankful that we made it to school and work on time! Hey, sometimes you are just happy with that, it’s the small things that count right?
Mini me (5yo) had her ENT consult this week and we decided surgery was best! My oldest daughter had her tonsils taken out and it was a horrifying experience which is partly why we have waited so long, but this year has been non stop strep throat and tonsillitis so it has been time. This child has lived on antibiotics this past year, so I even though I am a little scared I am thankful for an end in sight.
After the appointment mini me and I decided to have dinner at Cracker Barrel. We laughed and had some quality mommy daughter time. We had conversations about Daddy’s upcoming birthday and I asked her how old she thought she would be. Her response was daddy is turning 13 and mommy is 17! Did she seriously just make me older than her father! Thankful for great conversation with my daughter even if she bruised the ego a little!
The t-shirts I had made for my team have finally arrived! They look so awesome and I can’t wait to see their faces as I give them their Christmas presents. Yeah there was a delay in production but well worth it! My neuro science unit will be proud to wear these shirts!
Despite Buddy (2yo) having high fever and being ill, he has still maintained his fun-loving sense of humor! Kids are awesome that way huh? I am just so thankful that he seems to be himself despite being sick!
My car will be paid off next month!!! I think that is enough for ten thankfuls!!!! One more payment and the maybe we can fix some stuff around the house that is in major need! I’m not counting my chickens on that one just yet, but nonetheless I am thankful for only one more car payment!
School is back in session for me too, which means that I am one semester closer to getting my BSN. I have my associate’s degree but in this day and age you really need to head for the BSN route. I am thankful for a job that not only supports my decision to go back to school financially but also encourages it!
With an upcoming surgery a little less than two weeks to be exact I am thankful for my flex spending card. Until las year I had not fully understood what it was and only regret not having one sooner. It takes the financial stress of having major surgery so that you are able to worry about your loved one versus how am I going to pay for this.
We were planning on the Hubby’s Birthday dinner tonight while having family over, but had to cancel due to the obvious. I m thankful that he is very low maintenance and understand and we will have a very simple birthday dinner with just the five of us!
With being offline for essentially five days it is easy to feel discouraged. I am thankful for the wordpress community an that they are right here waiting for me once I return! Five days has felt like an eternity to me and I have some reading to catch up on!
