I am trying to bury my frustration today and really digging deep to focus on the good things, which is really why I started Thankful Thursday. I really try not to complain about my husbands employer too much especially here. I always have this fear that some how some one will see it and what if my husband looses his job. Really though, I can only take so much! Yet again my husband has not received a paycheck, it is 10 days late and almost time for the next paycheck. They STILL owe him expense money from LAST year and we have no idea when we will see any of this money. I am so sick of all of the excuses coming from the company he works for. I am sick of having to borrow money for the mortgage and for our addition and I am embarrassed at our inability to come up with the money we SHOULD have in our bank account. I worry that eventually my husband will loose his job because his employer can't seem to find the money to pay him. They send him hours and hours away to work, half the time I don't even know where he is. We can't afford for him to spend all that gas money to go to work and then not get paid. So he is home today. He is working on the addition. We have plenty to do that doesn't require spending any money for a good month or so.
Anyways, situations like this is why I started Thankful Thursday. To leave all of that crap behind, turn around and look at my family and smile at what I have. So here it is.
I had 3 of the oldest Nuts at the Dentist this week and not one of them has a cavity! Yippie Skippie! I am Thankful for healthy teeth.
Wee Nut had his last 2 Synergist shots for the RSV season, I am Thankful that he is protected from RSV.
My husband is home to work on the addition, help out with the kids and be here for me as I have a meltdown followed by a nervous breakdown. I am Thankful for his presence.
My Little Nut Nut is completely potty trained and has been wearing under ware all day at home and at preschool. I am so Thankful that I don't have to buy Pull Ups any more, well just for night time... and he has been waking up dry!
Wee Nut is learning how to talk and is finding dozens of new words every day. I am so Thankful for his smiling face and sweet voice.
She Nut is out growing so many clothes all of a sudden. I am so Thankful that I can now get rid of those clothes that are too small to make room for clothes that now fit her.
I am beyond Thankful to my local BFF who comes over bright and early to hand out with my kids so that I can drop E Nut and twice a week, Little Nut Nut off at school. It is such a blessing to have her help and makes my mornings so much easier.
Hot Tea, chocolate, good friends in real life and online, Nutella, and surprise visits with pizza and wings from Grandma Nut are a few more things I am Thankful for.
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 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.
