It is the end of a busy month and we are heading into a month that is equally as busy but with less travel for us. As I look back at the month that has passed and into the month that is yet to come, I have much to be thankful for. A lot has happened. Of course you would all know if I had written more but I took a few sabbaticals from writing and I usually don’t do that. So, here goes—
My health. I have had some ups and downs recently with my health. I have had digestion problems for the past 4 years. That is when I became a vegetarian and have since altered my eating habits in many different ways to comfort my aching stomach. I had more recently had more issues that landed me at the doctor’s office and running test after test and altering my diet once again but this time dramatically. Finally, the conclusion – Lactose Intolerant. There goes all my wine and cheese nights. But I am thankful that it isn’t something more and that I can get a handle on it easily.
I got to take a trip to New York and see one of my best friends get married. I travelled without kids, which is amazing! It was a quick trip so I didn’t see as much of Upstate New York as I would have liked but I went. I was there. I got to witness a beautiful wedding and be there for my friend and have a great time.
Spending Thanksgiving back in Anza. Last year we went to Disney World for Thanksgiving, which was an unforgettable experience. This year we got to go back home for Thanksgiving and spend it with family and friends. Being surrounded by home for the holidays is a wonderful feeling.
We got Levi back into therapy full-time. We were just dabbling here and there but things just kept happening at school. It’s back to a few times a month and I am so happy we decided to take the leap. He likes his therapist and it’s helping him enjoy his life here more.
It’s actually cold here. I dug out my box of beanies and have been wearing pants! I am thankful for the cold. We finally have a use for all of our cold weather clothes.
I am thankful to be a stay at home mom. I keep my house in order. Get to have time to myself because my kids go to school and I don’t ever have to miss anything!
I am thankful that this year is almost over. It hasn’t been a terrible year but it hasn’t been the greatest year either. Between the kids having a shit time at school, stuff breaking at the house, family stuff and just regular bull shit, I am ready for a new year. Hopefully bringing about a new place for us to live. A new beginning. Again.
I am also thankful for the little things.
My amazing vacuum that mops at the same time. That thing is so awesome.
Having a fire stick and being able to watch movies before they come out.
That my kids can play video games together but separately and not fight.
Almost all my Christmas shopping is done and I never once went to the store.
Our first batch of wine is done and we are ready to bottle it today.
I didn’t miss trash day this week.
I cleaned out my car and think I finally found that putrid smell.
I am thankful for all sorts of things. Big and Small.
