thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

How I need this today.  A chance to remind myself that I have so much to be thankful for even when I want to throw couch cushions in frustration.

Sigh.

Today I’m thankful for lessons learned.  Such as…

1.  It’s impossible to entertain three kids to their fullest capacity by myself.  However, it is possible to keep everybody moderately happy and satisfied for at least 75% of the evening if I put Amelia down early and let the big girls stay up late.

Later. Watching movies.  Because I’m not perfect but I am thankful for DVD players.

2.  You really shouldn’t cook rice in the crockpot if you’re going to turn it on at 7 a.m. and not return until 5:30.  Really.  Don’t try it.  But it makes me thankful for minute rice and alfredo in a jar, both of which contributed to salvaging that meal for another day.

Don’t ask for the recipe.  Anything that starts with “don’t do this” isn’t worth sharing.

3.  Candle are soothing.  (especially when trying to rid the house of a burnt rice smell) I’m really thankful for the Slatkin & Co. candles from Bath and Body Works.  Joshua got me the winter scent for Christmas and it’s as calming as that first snow fall after you’ve stocked the pantry and made soup (without rice) in the crockpot.

Ahhh…..I feel better now.

  1. I don't know what I did before my DVR player.. if you don't have one, it's a must with 3 kids. I can never watch TV unless they are in bed. That is unless it's something they want to watch! Thanks for joining in with us.

  2. I haven't heard of this thankful thursdays, but I am liking it! I need to start being more grateful 🙂 Also, I am super appreciative of DVDs as well (any TV really) and like the previous post said, at least you know where your crock pot is. I tried to use mines once and it was a big fat fail. Haven't touched it since.
