Snow and lack of water

I have been trying to curb my whining. At 32 years old I am sure it is annoying to everyone so I try to count my blessings instead.
  1. I am thankful I have a job. (Even it is means I have to drive in snowstorms at 6 in the morning)

  2. I am thankful it snowed (because without a well pump there is no water and I could melt to snow to make water to use to flush the potty)

  3. I am thankful I read and memorized all the little house books as a child (so I can think about how bad it could be)

  4. I am thankful to have wonderful friends who come over even after a long day of getting ready for 6" of snow to say "yep, looks like the well pump is dead."

  5. I am thankful for friend who understands that I really want a flushing potty but I will wait until tomorrow, with good grace, because I know Mr. Fix-it Man was up at 1 am to push snow.

  6. I am thankful for my plumber, who is off spending the money he earned off us in November replacing all the pipes in the house, so that I could catch a quick visit with my friend.

  7. I am thankful that it is March and the snow can't last much longer.

  8. I am thankful that the well pump decided to go now rather than in Aug when we'd be at Pennsic.

  9. I am thankful that my kids helped me shovel and melt snow today. We actually have the driveway clear!!

  10. I am thankful for Hubby who stayed with the kids this morning rather than have them catch a ride with my boss to me at work in the snowstorm.

OK it does feel so much better to be thankful than whining. I challenge you to think of 10 things that you are thankful for when the world seems very heavy.


  1. I am thankful that your knitting emergencies are easy to solve.

  2. I'm thankful for all the positive energy you're contributing to the universe through all this. Love the photo of Boyo at the stove.
