Favorite Things

I am having one of those days when I feel whiny and cold. I started this post with a poem about how much I hate baseboard heaters but I wanted something more up beat (and less whiny). So I will count my blessings instead. I suggest that everyone take a minute and count their blessings. There doesn't that feel better?
  1. I have 2 wonderful kids.

  2. I have a loving and generous husband.

  3. Girlie is making wonderful improvement in speech.

  4. The insurance will cover 30 visits to a speech person in a calendar year.

  5. I have a sister who sends me yarn.

  6. She sent to good stuff!!

  7. I have a mom who will drive 35 miles each way to see the kiddos play soccer.

  8. I get to keep my kids at home with me.

  9. Cuddles whenever I ask.

  10. Wifi!

  11. A husband who understands that while I will share my cereal with the kids but I don't like to.

  12. Friends who have been homeschooling long enough to be able to answer questions and mentor me.

  13. Games day!! Wonderful social time for the moms and kids.

  14. My father who so kindly provided the wifi for Christmas this year. Thanks!

  15. The people on Noggin who taught my kids so many important things (though they really need a news ticker so the parents can know what goes on in the world)

  16. Pinky Dinky Doo- who taught Girlie what assume meant without using any bad words. (hey you try to think of a meaning without using the word a@@)

  17. My hubby who supports my homeschooling the kids.

  18. I am thankful that even though my boss at work is harping on cutting costs, he hasn't laid anyone off yet and is actively looking for more ways to generate income.

  19. New friends who have kids the same age as Girlie and Boyo.

  20. Hubby's work which has said that there is no worries, no lay-offs and no cut-backs.

  21. Friends that I have known my kids entire lives.

  22. Girlie finally being potty trained.

  23. Big Al for providing the genetics that gave my kids the "humpf" that is so endearing and frustrating at the same time.

  24. My mom who would drive to vist weekly when Girlie was small.

  25. Affordable linen (the fabric store)

  26. Boyo's health

  27. Girlie's personality

Ok that is all I can think of now. Not too bad for an off the top of my head kinda thing. What is on your list?
