Again, I apologize for being SO bad at this, having the flu for 4 days really takes a toll on a person.
Day 11, also 11/11/11 and Veteran’s Day! Today I am thankful for ALL our vets and everyone currently serving our country, including my wonderful hubby! Seriously, words cannot even describe my thanks and appreciation. I think we often take for granted the hard work and sacrifice that goes into keeping this country what it is and us free. Again, thank you guys!
Day 12, I am thankful to be a part of these two very special little girls lives! Yesterday was little miss Leana’s 4th bday (seriously seems like yesterday I was holding her at the hospital), and today was her birthday party. Not only am I “aunt” Shawna, but I get to babysit these cuties 4 days a week, I have had so much fun watching them grow and learn something new everyday. They are so smart and amaze me! I can’t wait to have kids of my own, and I know these girls will be great leaders for my kids!
Day 13, I am thankful for LAZY sundays! Seriously, today was PERFECT, especially after being sick and needing a day to to recoup. On Friday, I got HP Lego 5-7 and the hubby got Skyrim. Sunday we woke up and had a gaming/reading day with the exception of our daily walk and a break to get Mongolian to go! We are still trying to beat HP Lego 1-4 as we have had it FOREVER, but only played a couple times (life was busy this year). My loving hubby gave up Skyrim time to play HP with me (he does love all the Lego games too), as I am trying to hurry and beat it so we can start the new one! Some sundays we are super busy, other sundays we use for errands/catching up on housework but this sunday was all about being lazy, something which is rare for us actually, and I loved every minute of it!
Day 14, I am thankful for my doggies! I just love them! They are like kids to us, seriously, they even each have a bucket of clothes! But this week while sick, they were there for me, laying by my side and looking up at me making sure I was ok. I seriously don’t know what I would do without these two furry critters…. and since we live with my parents for the next couple weeks, their dog (who I grew up with, so my childhood dog was right there with them at my side, I just love him too). I love cuddling up with a good book with these two at my feet! And for the months that I lived here and the hubby lived in PDX, they seriously kept me sane and helped me feel less lonely!
