Be Grateful #15
1) I'm thankful for the wonderful Thanksgiving we had! What a glorious day! I do wish Zach had been feeling better for the weekend, but he made it through.
2) I'm pleasantly surprised by how kind folks were at Walmart Thanksgiving night while we waiting to buy $20 sheets. (Yes. I was crazy. I must have had a stroke or something.) I normally don't partake in Black Friday--or in this case, Grey Thursday--and I was very hesitant in light of the ridiculousness of starting even earlier. But I thought the sheets were gold, and we have been looking for some for ages, so I thought my mama and I could pop up there, and it would give her a chance to get out and about, which she hasn't been able to do in awhile. Well, they weren't gold; they were tan. But I was able to pick up some grey sheets for my MIL and some cream ones for my SIL (she and her husband only have one set of sheets right now, so I was glad to get them some), and I was able to football carry some green ones for my mom (who always uses secondhand sheets). We really had an enjoyable time, though it got a bit crazy and I don't think I will ever do this again, especially on Grey Thursday.
3) I'm grateful for the long weekend I had to relax and knit and watch TV and eat lots of ham, cornbread dressing, and pie.
4) I'm glad my root canal is over and that it wasn't painful. Right now, since the feeling has come back, it is a bit sore. Please pray that I stop stressing it is chipped or something; I'm freaked by how rough the surface feels. (I've got to schedule my crown still.)
5) I'm so happy that there are just two weeks until finals week! These next two weeks should be rather easy for me. :)
6) And I'm so happy that we have our Christmas decorations up and are watching Christmas Vacation right now.
7) Mostly, I'm so blessed to have a wonderful husband...who trudged to Walmart last night after I realized we didn't have enough of the same lights for our tree. I love that man.
