This month, I’ve been doing a 30 thankful days post on Instagram that has really helped me to appreciate and be thankful for all of the little things in my life. Because sometimes, you look at the bad things in your life, the things that are not going right for you, the things that you wish you could change, and you forget about the great simple moments in life.
Doing the #30thankful days project on Instagram has definetly helped me with that.
So I put together a litte collage of all of the thankful things.
I uploaded this from my phone so if it looks wacky, be nice…remember I have no internet and I am on my way to the in laws today.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.
And remember to be thankful for the small things.

So today, I was supposed to celebrate the fact that my 30 days of black and white project is officially over!
But then a broken modem at my house happened and I’ve had no internet since yesterday morning. And of course, this being the holidays and everything, they can’t get us a new modem until Saturday.
FAIL FAIL FAIL
Anyway, I have photos, but can’t upload them! *weeps*
But I did it! I completed my first 30 day project and I am on day 27 of my 365 and Naphopomo and this is day 27 of NABLOPOMO.
Which is a good thing cause ya girl is tired.
PLUS throw into that bad weather, a cranky husband( who of course blames ME for the modem breaking because I moved furniture??? even though he is the one who dropped said modem.??? But I digress….)
And a kinda wanna be sick Pookah who needs a breathing treatment and medicine that CDub left at Pookah’s school which is closed until Monday.
This day did not start well.
At least I have Starbucks….

Today, is my Pookah Bear Baby’s Birthday.
He is now four.
I remember the day he was born like yesterday. My water broke in Ross and I grabbed a towel off the shelf and walked up to the cash register to pay for it. I came home, cleaned up, cleaned the house, waited for my parents and brother to get there, ATE my Popeye’s chicken and then headed to the hospital( 6 hours later). It was the night before Thanksgiving. Pookah didn’t want to come out and with a mother’s and a Labor and Delivery Nurse’s intuition, I knew that he wasn’t going to come out in the conventional way. What I didn’t expect was for it to be an all out emergency, running down the hall STAT delivery. My goodness!
He was so precious. And I was in love at first cry.
Now, four years later I am still in love with my precious baby. His belly laugh, his dimple in the left cheek, his obsession with monster trucks and cars. His absolute love of pepperoni pizza, his obsession with cheese, and his willingness to cuddle with me at anytime.
Where did the time go?
So today, Happy Birthday to my Pookah Bear Baby. I can’t wait to see the adventures of your fourth year.

My weekend was….
In a good way.
Saturday, Pookah woke up at o’dark 30 and I lamented( as I always do) on why is it I never get to sleep past 6 am on a Saturday? And Cdub just rolls over????When did it become my duty to wake up with the boy? I guess when he was still attached to the breast..
Cdub got it in his head that he was going to MAKE himself a man cave since I won’t let him have the biggest bedroom for his dream pool table. He took over what is supposed to be the formal living room. It had been serving as a playroom/sitting room for me. But the former owners had painted one wall red in there and it bothered me. I don’t do bright crayola colors on my walls well, which is one of the many reasons I haven’t quite felt at home in this house. We need to paint. THE WHOLE HOUSE. All of this to say that CDub had me at Home Depot at 9 am picking out paint colors.
After much bickering, we chose a pretty grey color from Behr called Manhattan Mist. It’s so pretty! And it had primer in the paint so it wasn’t so hard to get rid of the red. Pookah helped of course.
Sunday was more of the same, just me rearranging furniture in the den and Cdub’s man cave and plotting on a TV for black Friday. And grocery shopping and searching for a gluten free pizza Pookah just had to have, and rug shopping, and mopping and dusting and washing clothes and ….you get it. All of the wifey/mommy duties while folks watched football and played on the ipad( side eye to the men folks in this house!)
Now it’s Monday, and thank GOD it’s a short week. I’m kind of giddy about it because this is the first time in 13 years that I have NO PARTS of working a Thanksgiving weekend. No holiday, no Black Friday, no NOTHING.
I said at the beginning of the year, my goal was to NOT work another holiday. Thoughts are things!
Ain’t God good?
