I've fought it... fought it hard... and I just may continue to fight - but for now I've succomb to blogging... BLECK! what a word... sounds like something you have to clean up after a bout with the flu!But it's Thanksgiving today and I wanted to express how thankful I am for so many things...My wonderful Christian husband, forgiving and tolerating me for the last 16+ years. How he does it I've no idea...My impatient, entitled attitude, beautiful, (yet hopelessly selfish) children... all three of them. Our home, which I love and my tolerating DH allowed me to talk him into (which is now making us poor...) My wonderful Christian parents and husband's Christian parents living so close... it really is nice to have them near.My ability to stay home and educate my kids now... I have to keep reminding myself of this because at the end of most days I'm ready to sell them to the next passer by...My net friends. I don't think I'd make it long without them. Sometimes I need to take a break and step back from the business of other's lives, but I miss the contact. I don't have any close girlfriends where I'm living now - you know - the kind you call and say, "hey - wanna take the kids to the mall and stand in line for hours to get a shot with Santa?" or "hey - feel like coming over to scrap?" So my net friends keep me going... and I love them.
