30 Days of Thanks 2014 – Day 21

My Turkey

Today I am thankful for having the day off because I accomplished more today than I do on nearly every other Friday.

From my gargantuan, ongoing to-do list, I checked off the following:

Volunteered for a few hours at the monkey’s school – Done!

Walked to and from said volunteering (nearly 2.5 miles) = exercised for today – Done!

Watched her Thanksgiving feast school performance – Done!

Thanksgiving shopping – Done! (Minus 3 turnips and some hot chocolate…who has only 1 turnip in stock? Sigh…)

And…I also managed to spend quality time with my Mom, something I haven’t done in 3 months and spend some quality time with Maya, sans rushing and the usual frustrations.

For all of these things, I am grateful.

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my daughter....it worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...


    1. It’s a good nickname 🙂 And yes, it was a pretty great day – I was so tired at the end, I fell asleep within seconds of my head hitting the pillow!

What's your 2 sense?
