Thankful Thursday

Whew! It has already been a long day at the Nut House, I am ready for a nap. The day started out very early with several unhappy babies and one reluctant 6 year old who was not happy about going to school today. He was only 45 minutes late, that doesn't make me too bad a of a mom. I am already awaiting the slap on the wrist from the school, who will send a letter reprimanding me for sending my kid to school late too many times and reminding me of the state laws enforcing the amount of time my child must spend in school. It will probably be sent out by the same lady from the office who sneezed all over her HAND just before answering the phone. Way to stop the spread of germs at the school.

Moving on.

At the moment, I am Thankful that I actually remembered that it is Thursday.

I am Thankful for the pleasurable parent teacher conference that I had this morning with Little Nut Nut's teacher and the wonderful review I got from her. This child actually loves to go to school and is eager to learn, sits down and gets his work done. Granted, he is only 3 and in preschool...but it is still good to hear that everything is going well.

I also had a parent teacher conference with E Nut's teacher the other day, and I am equally Thankful for a good review from her as well. He is the youngest kid in the class, getting in just 2 days before the cut off, so he is a bit behind with his reading. I was glad to hear that she is putting him into an intense reading group to help him learn to read.

Wee Nut woke up with a runny nose and wheezing this morning, so off to the doctor we went. Checked throat, nose, ears and chest...all clear, no fever. I am so Thankful for that! He does have a runny nose, just no infection, the wheezing is coming from his airway, and not his chest, simply post nasal drip.

I am concerned about H1N1 with our family and especially Wee Nut and his Heart, so at the first sign of anything, we are off to the doctor.

Our family had come into contact with several people who have gotten H1N1 both last week and this week, and I am very Thankful that as of Today, we have managed to avoid it. Lots of hand washing and lots of sanitizing.

I am Thankful that I just heard my coffee pot beep to tell me my coffee is done, I had to run out of the house today without my coffee and I am ready to fall flat on my face.

Still Thankful for Zoloft and all the support and stories that have been shared with me in the past two weeks.

As always, I am Thankful for my happy, healthy, wild little beasties that run around my house all day long driving me crazy, I am Thankful that my husband has a job, we have a roof over our heads and for our wonderfully supportive group of friends and family and all the ways they help us.




So what are you Thankful for today? It is so easy to join in and tell everyone.

Here is how Thankful Thursdays works:

1. Post your Thankful Thoughts on your blog. Somewhere in your post please mention Welcome to the Nut House and http://ourhappynuthouse.blogspot.com/ so that your friends, family and visitors know where to find other Thankful Thoughts. You can also grab my Thankful Thursdays banner at the top of this post and link to that. Once you have done that you can come back here and add your post to MckLinky.

Not every one has a blog, so:

2. If you don't have a blog, you can leave a Thankful Thoughts comment in the comment section.

3. You can show your Thankful Thoughts any way you like, as a list, as a story, as one word, one sentence or just a picture.

Have fun!
