Thankful Thursday

Oops! Boy did I let today get away from me! Brianne just tweeted at me asking me about Thankful Thursdays. I was so busy with homeshool lessons and working on some things for Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week, that the day slipped away. I have had a rough week recovering from Christmas vacation and getting back into the swing of things...of course that is no excuse for a grown woman to completely forget what day of the week it is...but that is my story and I am sticking to it.

So first off, I am Thankful to Brianne for bring my slacker ways to my attention and I owe this edition of Thankful Thursdays to her :)

I am more than Thankful that today is Thursday and that there is only one more day left in this sloooooow and painful week. I will be even more Thankful if the snow keeps falling through the night and E Nut gets a snow day tomorrow.

She Nut finally cut her first tooth! She has been a soggy, drooling mess for weeks and I have been looking at the white tooth through her gums for just as long. Today she grabbed onto my finger and bit down with her little fang tooth and let me know it was there. So Thankful for the simple memories of a baby girls first tooth.

I have been wanting a pair of Uggs for years, but never really said anything about them because, 1 they are way too expensive and 2 I heard once that my husband hates them. So I confessed last month how much I really love them and was adding it my my Must Have know for the future, something to work for. Even though my husband hates the Ugg style, he got me an off brand pair of the cutest Ugg style boots for Christmas! Unfortunately, they were too small. When I went to exchange them, there were none in my size so we had to have them shipped in from another store....I bet you know where I am going with this. I got the call today and my new boots were in! And really, that is one of the contributing factors that distracted me from getting Thankful Thursdays up at a reasonable hour this morning. And to make my new boots even more exciting, it started snowing a few hours ago, so when I ran out to make the exchange, I got to put my new ones on and wear them out of the store, into the snow. Perfect! I felt like a little girl getting new shoes, so giddy.

I know that might be a silly thing to be Thankful for, but after a week like I have had this week, I drove out of away from the store, with a new pair of boots that fit just right, and the radio up......yep, just like the Zack Brown Band song Chicken Fried. Cheesy, I know, but that is what I was singing in my head as I drove home in the snow.

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.

I know it is late, and I don't know if anyone is ready to participate or not, but I am going to set up the MckLinky anyways...

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 so that your friends, family and visitors know where to find other Thankful Thoughts. You can also grab my Thankful Thursdays banner 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!
