i blog therefore i am?

who am i? i am a wife. a mom. a sister. a daughter. a friend. but who am I?

i don't work outside the home so i have no "career".

i am not a deep thinker, but i know lots of stuff about lots of stuff.

i don't write or paint or create anything. (except this blog and it doesn't count)

most of my days are free floating and filled with house hold duties, sometimes done, reading, playing, relaxing.

so who am I?

i still have no idea who i am. but i think i'm ok with that.

i like to think i'm a good mom. and i hope i am a good friend. i like to be around other people because they (mostly) make me happy. i love to cook, and read. not the most exciting things. i do love music and hanging out with my loved ones. sometimes i feel like i don't "do" enough. does that make me dull?

just some thoughts on a hotter-than-hades day...

Thankful on a Thursday

FINALLY!! i'm blogging on a thursday so i get to copy miranda
and do a thankful post!

1. I am thankful that I live in America. I hear people complain all the time about this country and it's politics. but when it comes right down to it, there are people all over the world who don't have it as good as we do!

2. for friends. i have been uber blessed in this department.

3. laughter! it really is the best medicine! how much better do i feel when i laugh? and i'm not really good at joke telling but i can appreciate one like nobody's business!

4. my dishwasher.

5. my kids who empty my dishwasher!

6. Top Chef! love love love this show and every year i can't wait to watch it over and over and over and over

7. winter. just detest the heat. i was born in the wrong state. give me cold anyday!

8. lasix surgery. the best thing i have ever done for myself.

9. ebay.

10. having music in my car. i used to drive a dodge colt that didn't even have a radio! i would sing Madonna all the way to work every day. i ♥ my CD player! now madge and i can sing together! :)

woo-hoo!! i did 10! hopefully i'll be back next thursday!

ms manners

i ♥ manners. and it makes me feel so good to hear my kids using manners with each other. just now caleb asked monkey if he had a bouncy ball. monkey went to his room, found one and handed it to caleb. caleb said thank you. monkey said you're welcome. it just warmed my heart. cause i know if they are using manners with each other, they are using them out in the world. (at least i can hope!)

i am the kind of person who ALWAYS says please and thank you. if someone lets me in in traffic. i give them my famous thank you wave. if a car stops so i can cross the street, i say it so they can read my lips. i say thank you to my husband. i think the world would be a better place if everyone said please and thank you. so please, say thank you to someone today.

(oh and if for some reason i don't use my manners, call me on it.) thanks!
