My Appreciation Day

I have another list of things that I am so appreciative of this week. It has been a rollercoaster of a week to say the least. I will love it when things calm down.

This week I am grateful for:

~Bloglines. This little beauty has cut down my blogsurfing by 2/3rds of the time. My family is grateful

~It still being warm enough outside that I can do 8 loads of laundry in one day and hang things outside so that they will all be dry at the same time and I don't have to have laundry hanging from every rod/doornob/ in my house.

~The garbage disposal so that I can dump real alfredo sauce down it. My garbage can doesn't stink until next week.

~A vet that is sweet to my dog and came out of surgery to check her out.

~That we still have a puppy at my house.

~Doritos for PMS.

~My private Milk Duds stash.

~Shout for stains. Die orange popsicles....die!

~A husband that realized when I had reached my emotional brink, took the kids so I could have an evening to myself.

~Ibuprofen.

There you have it. All of the things that made my heart smile this week.

Have a good weekend all!

Have you tried Dorritos dipped in cottage cheese? MMMMM! Cottage cheese is a health food so no matter what you eat with it it's healthy!

I'm grateful for most of those things, too. My crunchiness is jealous of your clothesline.

Doritos! Save me some! Oh wait a minute, is that your dog?

Oh ya, instead of Doritos, send me the dog. Or both.

Yeah, it's Grateful Day at Steph's house! I'm so glad your sweet pup will be OK. Bloglines is awesome, Doritos & Milk Duds are awesome. Time alone is awesome.

I bought a big bar of dark chocolate that I stashed last weekend. I eat one (sometimes 2) rectangles/day. It makes me happy.

Glad your puppy is still with you.

Your list was great to read!

Ok, gotta give you a HI-5 for the garbage disposal, Doritos, and chocolate!! By the way, I just bought some Shout at Target. AND -- you are making me emotional talking about being warm outside. I do not want winter to come!!! Kleenex anyone???
