Just the ramblings of a crazy Mom of two beautiful girls (and YaYa to many children that I adore) navigating through my snafu'd life. This blog is my way of 'clearing the cobwebs' and trying to maintain my sanity.
I have a chaotic life full of kids, rebuilding after our house burnt, coffee, my best girls, mornings in my breezeway, blogging, a full time job, screaming kids, laundry, remodeling, Asperger's/OCD Big'K, mowing, taking the trash out, Bipolar w/psychosis and RAD Lil'K, a crazy family, more kids thrown in the mix, bad plumbing, laughing until I pee my pants, electrical malfunctions, and everything else the Big G thinks He needs to throw at me on this ride we call life, all the while trying to survive being a single mother. Because let's face it...every day that I wake up, I am outnumbered!
what are you thankful for? your kids, spouse, family, good friends, the crack that keeps you going day after day? im sure for everyone its something different. and dare i say not one of my friends are thankful for the crack. thanks for that.
turkey day is all about giving thanks. thanks for what our land produces for us everyday to eat. thanks for the people that are around our dinner table celebrating with us. thanks to those indians that showed the pilgrims how to cook! a lot of things have changed since that very first turkey dinner and i would dare to say those people around that original feast would shudder at where the world is today. but im not here today to get all preachy preachy about the environment. im here to day to tell you what im thankful for. so here goes...
i am thankful that my boobs did not fall off of my body today.
i am thankful that neither of my children showed up on a milk carton.
i am thankful that my father didnt burn down the house frying corndogs.
i am thankful mother dog didnt eat another puppy in front of my kids.
i am thankful my cable has not been shut off yet.
i am thankful for my job and my pay regardless of my $200 paycheck.
i am thankful for my insurance that will fully cover another surgery if my boobs do fall off of my body.
i am thankful for my friends. some of which remind me of my own downfalls on a daily basis.
i am thankful for my car that is 3000 miles past its oil change and still running.
i am thankful for my ability to do more with less because this thanksgiving will be less...
i am thankful for a lot of things. life, liberty, and the freedom of speech. my family. my friends. my wednesday a.m. coffee crew. my employment. my smaller boobs (PLEASE stay attached to my body and heal correctly!!!). my health. what my grandmothers taught me. rest them both. im so thankful my great aunt is still here with me. she teaches me something different every single day. im thankful that my dad is here and happy. i joke about a lot but i am so thankful for so many things.
so this week take some time and really think about what youre thankful for. things disappear but you can get them back. people leave all the time and you dont get that second chance. i believe more than being thankful for things...it is more important to tell people in your life that you are thankful for them being there. so for the next three days i am going to email, call, text, and plain 'ole tell the people in my life that i love them and am super thankful for them being in my life.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!
and lets not forget our brave service men and women overseas and away from their families this holiday season. i have quite a few friends and family members that will not be home. i love you all. and stay positive. come home soon.
that means you too Sir. i do love you and know we will be thinking of you while we carve the bird.
Just a mom of two kids. Big K and Lil K. Who make me loco on a daily basis. I have a ton of other kids that call me 'YaYa'. They are my 'stray cats' as my great aunt refers to them. Once you start feeding them they won't go away...and apparently i'm a great cook!
The things I say will not always make sense. I am funny. I am sarcastic. I am educated. (Sometimes I forget this and the ghettoredneckcoonass comes out. I cannot help it. Hushitup!) I am a smartass. I do not sleep a lot. I may be off color at times. I am also harmless. You may not get my style and that is not my fault. This blog is not meant to be anything other than my thoughts. What I say belongs to me and at the end of the day...it's just words. Get over yourself. If you are offended, go away. You have been warned...
