Today I am most thankful for my wonderful husband whose 30th birthday it is! I am thankful we both made it to 30 and together!
I am thankful for the abundance of friends and family who have sent well wishes for the day and the abundance of financial security to have a decent celebration of said birthday all weekend long!
I am also thankful for a healthy happy baby and that we get to enjoy birthdays and Christmas in the relative peace of our own home. I dropped off some of my moms group’s donations to the Ronald McDonald house today and was reminded just how lucky I am!

Today I am thankful for:
a healthy baby,who’s quickly turning into a toddler and not a baby! Savannah started walking this last Sunday the 27th. For this I am thankful too. We saw a girl at the doctor’s yesterday who had something that curved her spine and her mom was carrying her around like a giant doll. It made me realize how very very lucky I am. This girl was obviously very loved by her mom, and I am thankful for that too. Please say a little prayer tonight for all those caring for a sick child.
trick or treaters. Really, it makes me so happy to have trick or treaters. We gave out really good stuff this year, so maybe next year we’ll have even more!
old friends.
new friends.
people willing to give their time and energy to make our community a better place.
books,libraries, dvds
and my amazing husband


Up too late…and some Thursday Thanks September 21, 2007

I am not sleeping, but I should be. I know Savannah will be up sooner rather than later, but my mind keeps turning and I can’t think of anything quiet to do but read or have some computer time, which is all the more valuable since I don’t get nearly as much as I used to. Anyway, we are back from the beach and had a great time. Savannah is amazingly good natured and adapts well to different situations. Apparently, she also LOVES Natalie and thinks she is really funny. Today she (Savannah,not Natalie) was taking two brave steps back and forth between me and Jay. She will be walking soon.
Some random thoughts-
if you want me to give you money 1. spell my name right. I can’t tell you how much this irritates me. 2. Send me the information in a language I read well. I might want to support your efforts, if I knew what they were. 3. If you are an organization I used to be affiliated with, don’t let your first correspondence be “please donate to our building/scholarship/general fund”. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Spend the 41 cents and find out what I’ve been up to first.
all the Lisas in my life share today as their birthday. Happy Birthday!
Now I am getting sleepy, so I will move onto the Thursday Thanks
I am thankful for…my amazing husband, my wonderful baby, sweet puppy girl, my awesome family, wonderful friends(especially my YCDI sisters!), beaches, backyards, falling leaves, wind on Savannah’s face and the fact that it makes her laugh, feeling safe in my house/neighborhood, making new friends, the internet and the ability to afford it, being able to stay home with my baby and the pretty new finish on the dining room floor!

I am thankful for so many things today. I am thankful to be alive, healthy, American, educated, air conditioned and having the ability to choose to stay home with my sweet baby. Yesterday we went swimming and she figured out that if she kicked her legs in the floaty thing, she would move(with my help) and was so very proud of herself! We swam for hours. I am thankful for swimming pools as well. I am thankful for enough of a cool breeze (who knew 96 would feel cool?) to go enjoy the back yard and the crispy baked leaves on the ground. Savannah enjoyed crunching them and throwing them in the air and watching them fall back down. I can’t wait for fall!
