Gratitude Project 2009 Day 3

I am thankful (for/that):
  1. Our upstairs television in the spare room, where I can cuddle into the little bed (as we call it--it's a twin) and watch whatever I want when the big TV is occupied.
  2. Football season doesn't last all year, and that Jason doesn't really like other sports. :)
  3. Trader Joe's. I love having someplace I can buy convenience food that is still healthy and good and not filled with chemicals and high-fructose corn-syrup!!
  4. Leftovers.
  5. Emery boards; another kind of silly thing to list, but all my fingernails have been breaking off lately and I keep snagging them on things so I seem to use an emery board several times a day! I hate scratchy nails.
  6. Online shopping; there are no local silver suppliers so without online shopping I would have a much harder time getting my supplies!
  7. Two pairs of Dansko shoes that my sister gave me (because they were too small for her after she had my nieces). :) They're so comfortable and keep my feet warm when it's cold and rainy out.
  8. Jason never complains about anything that I wear, even though I know he doesn't like those shoes! :) He just says, "You're wearing the comfortable shoes today." LoL!!
  9. Criminal Minds. I adore this show and love to watch it, even if I've already seen the episode before.
  10. Remote controls.
  11. I can do a lot of math in my head; I rock at percentages and fractions.
  12. I taught my dad something! I told him about Maximizers and Satisficers last night and he said he now understands my mom better because apparently she's a Maximizer like me and he's a Satisficer like Jason!
  13. Wi-Fi.
  14. Our new(ish) mattress. Our neighbors gave us their (still relatively new) mattress because it was way too firm for them and they bought a brand-new super soft one. With a feather-bed on top the firm mattress is perfect for me; love it and my back hurts a lot less in it!
  15. Sorry if this is TMI, but tampons. I mean, honestly.
  16. Accents! I totally love accents (especially Southern, Irish, and Australian)! [And if Daniele is reading, then yes of course I love Italian accents, but I love hearing the Italian language more than Italians speaking English with an accent! :)] We had lunch at an Irish pub today and since they were playing the big match between Ireland and France later, there were a ton of cute Irish lads with their cute Irish accents there waiting for the game to come on. :) And they were so nice and polite while scoping out our table and waiting for us to leave so they could pounce on it! Politeness is so lovely!
  17. We have plane tickets home for Christmas and will be there for 10 days this time!
  18. Comfortable bras. Again, I mean, honestly. How distracting is it to have an uncomfortable one? I can barely think of anything else when I have lace itching me or an underwire jabbing me!
  19. Pinot Grigio.
  20. Beef Barley Soup.
Don't forget to check out Jilliene, Heather, and Lori's Gratitude posts, and Katie joined us today, too, with a list from her awesome son Oliver! Paula joined us today, too! And MaryElla posted on Thursday. :) Let me know if you're writing your own list, even if you don't have a blog to post it on! Or even if you just like reading my lists, then comment to let me know! I'd love to put "Lots of blog comments" on one of my lists, LoL!! :)

Happy Saturday night! See you again tomorrow! :)

OMG - I LOVE criminal minds too! Its so sick and twisted but totally entertaining! ;o) I almost put trader joes down also but I had already written fresh fruit and veges and I didn't want to overdo the grocer theme...

You hit some good gratitudes with this one. I had a bra wire incident last week and so agree with you on that one!
