Thankful for...

Sweet husband.
The knowledge we have.
Time to spend with family.
The opportunity we have to grow and change.
Dreams and hopes for the future.
Those brave brave pilgrims who courageously came to America.
Our little apartment
Good friends.
Christmas decorations.
The privilege Mikey and I get to go to school and better ourselves. I need to remind myself that it is a privilege a little more often.
Little people.
Two working cars.
Free time.
Passions and interests.

It's sad that it sometimes takes a blog post for me to remember how blessed I am. Looking at the list the things I am most grateful for, I realize again how unbelievably lucky I am. Right now, I'm especially thankful that I am busy. It means that I am working hard and progressing. I am becoming the person I want to be. I don't have time for self pity. The best part of being busy is when I'm not anymore. Having four days off to do nothing and everything is pure bliss. At the end of Thursday, Friday, Saturday I told Mike, "I like this day."
And I still have the end of today.

I ran a 5k on Saturday.
And I am proud of myself.
In high school when I was "in shape" aka dancing an hour a day 5 days a week I could barely run a mile.
I trained for 4 weeks.
I have no idea what a good time is so my only goal was to not walk at all.
I'm a wimp, okay.
I finished in 38 minutes.
I don't know if that is good or bad, but I'll take it.

It feels really good to accomplish something that I've been working hard on and something that I've never been good at.

I'm thinking...

Spank me for not posting in ages. Some thoughts I'm currently thinking: 

Mikey's sister is having a baby and it's a .....

She lives in Alaska and since she couldn't tell us the gender in person, she ordered some cupcakes with the color of the gender in the middle. She was on the phone and we all took a bite of the cupcake... BLUE! BOY! I love when people make an event out of things. Celebrate life! 

I'm thinking I miss this lady and I'm so excited for her to come home for Christmas and for us to go to costa vida and eat frozen yogurt and do nothing all day during the break from work and school. 

I'm thinking that homework is the worst.

I'm remembering our awesome homemade Hallows Eve costumes of Phantom of the Opera and Christine Daae.

I'm remembering our pumpkin carving with Hillarie and James.
I'm thinking James' Darth Vader pumpkin was awesome.

 And I'm thinking my batman pumpkin is kinda lame.

I'm thinking that I love working with 1st graders. I have so much fun with them, singing songs and playing games and seeing their genuine excitement for learning. I could just take all those little ninos home with me.

I'm thinking I have been watching a little too much of this lately. I'm a bit addicted and I take the characters problems way to seriously.

I'm thinking I love this little precious so much. I am so lucky his mama lets me snuggle with him for hours on end.

I'm thinking that my husband is weird.

Lastly, I'm thinking I love Snively.
