Thankful Tuesday?

I'm determined to be thankful about something today.

Determined! Self, are you listening? I. Am. Determined.

I didn't get a lot of sleep last night. S woke up two or three times and even though each time she went back to bed in her room with no fuss (hey wait - I'm really thankful about that. Score!), I still ended up being awake from about 12:30 am until around 4 am. So I am really tired and just a smidge grouchy.

It snowed last night, but not enough to close schools for today. I'm supremely thankful for that - mostly because of my lack of sleep and the fact that there really isn't enough snow to make snow angels or snowmen. Not sure I'm up for an entire day of whining about how we don't get the 'good snow'. 

And, today was S's preschool day. I really was determined to take her to school and come back and take a nap, but I ended up going to the Y anyway. My workout ended up being kind of a half assed effort on my part, to be honest, but at least I went. That makes every day since last Tuesday. Yay!

I'm thankful that the roads were clear and in good condition today. The temperature isn't going to rise above freezing today and it could be so very much worse out there.

I'm thankful that on our way home from Walmart today where we totally failed in finding the Dora cake pan we saw just last week, when S flung her seat belt off on the ride home mid tantrum that:
1) the sheriff in the lane beside us didn't pull me and ticket me. There's no way he missed the fireworks inside the car with all the flailing about and toy flinging. When S announced she was never going to speak to me again, I was not really very sad about that. I was hoping for a vow of silence of the week lasting sort, but no such luck.  And yes, she's already speaking to me again. Sigh.
2) We didn't get into an accident. OMG the horror of the possibility of that happening is still with me.
3) It's a short trip home. I'm very, very grateful for that. Very.

For sure, today is filled with lots of  things to be thankful for. And right up there at the top of the list is that I've already got dinner ready to go in the oven and when R gets home, I'm taking a nap for dinner and then I'm going to Zumba. Booya!

Good for you for finding things for which to be thankful! I love it!

Oh my gosh, Samantha, it's soooo much fun. With a great instructor, it's not even like you're working out. I wish I could go twice a day, every day. I can't wait to hear what you think when you get to go...make sure and let me know!
