Thankful Thursday

This week is my first week trying out my new Thankful Thursday method. Every night before I go to bed, I write down 5 things I am thankful for that day. I try to keep it relevant to that day's events. It wouldn't be a very good exercise if I wrote the same things over and over again. So, here are the things I have been thankful for this week:

Thursday, October 30, 2008

  1. The free razor I received in the mail today.
  2. My older dog's ear is looking a lot better. Hopefully the staph infection is clearing up.
  3. My husband cooking dinner for me.
  4. NPR - My main source of news anymore.
  5. Gas prices are dropping.

  1. My daughter's first Halloween
  2. Time with my family. They came over for family game night and to celebrate my brother's birthday, but we didn't get around to playing any games.
  3. Getting off work 45 minutes early
  4. Seeing all the kids in their Halloween costumes. I love seeing how everyone dresses up every year.
  5. The deals I found on Halloween candy. Yeah for sales, coupons and rebates.

  1. Getting my errands run.
  2. Getting more Christmas shopping done.
  3. My husband only needed 4 stitches in his hand. I'm very thankful that the injury wasn't worse. People (like my father) have been known to cut fingers off with those razor knives.
  4. Finding the Glade flameless candles free after coupon at the grocery store. I love these.
  5. Free magazine subscriptions. We always have reading material around here now.

  1. The wood on our bay window has now all been replaced and the job was completed without any new injuries.
  2. Getting my kitchen and pantry cleaned up.
  3. Seeing the joy on my daughter's face when she crawls around after our dogs.
  4. My digital camera. I love being able to take pictures of my daughter for my blog and to share with family and friends.
  5. All the beautiful fall leaves adding color to nature. Fall is my second favorite season.

  1. My husband picking our daughter up from daycare so that I was able to get home 45 minutes earlier then usual.
  2. Reaching 100 posts on both of my blogs.
  3. My elephant journal. It's just so much fun to write in.
  4. Time to walk my dogs at night. They love it and the exercise is good for me.
  5. Our stockpile of food and such. It helps us save money.

  1. The election is finally over.
  2. Finding out Super Fresh has triple coupons this week.
  3. Time to work on my blogs and get some posts scheduled

  1. Time with my daughter. She is such a sweetie. She brings joy to my life in ways I had never imagined possible.
  2. Contentment. I don't know exactly why, but lately I find that I am content with my life in ways that surprise me. I think I will have to post more on this later.
  3. Flex spending accounts at my husband's job. They save us tax money. Yeah!
  4. The tour of Raven's Stadium I got to take today. It was so much fun and I loved seeing the different areas of the stadium.
  5. My datebook. Without it I would be lost.
