Gratitude Project 2009 Day 4

Wow, we have a logo now! Thanks to Paula! :)

I am thankful for/that:
  1. My friend Kellie had her baby! Carli was born yesterday and mama and baby are safe and sound!
  2. For once I'm caught up on my book clubs! One of my clubs doesn't meet in December and the other one will meet while I'm gone, so I don't have another club meeting until January, which means I get to read whatever I want for a while!!
  3. Jason is off riding motorcycles with friends today, which means I get most of the day to myself, the perfect day for an introvert who just had a house guest! :)
  4. Greek yogurt... it's sooooo good!
  5. Cherry Coke Zero; I know I shouldn't, and I try not to drink much soda, but it's such a guilty pleasure!
  6. Cycles can be broken, and knowing that it's a cycle is half the battle.
  7. Learning from others' mistakes.
  8. I don't have much bad food in the house, because if I did I'd eat it all today. I'm especially craving gummy bears and Doritos, neither of which I ever keep in the house. If I really really want to buy something but I don't, I think of it as "saving" money; the same applies to food I really really want to eat but don't--think of the calories I just "saved"! :)
  9. Hummus.
  10. Our house didn't flood during the recent storm (unlike some friends in Virginia Beach!). :(
  11. I got to hear my niece on the phone today and she made me laugh--gwocka wocka wocka means gorilla, apparently. :)
  12. Jason came home safely from his motorcycle ride and he had a great day.
  13. Jason cuddles me every night as I go to sleep; even if I come in to bed after he's already asleep, he'll usually wake up enough to cuddle me. :)
  14. I'm never bored. I have far too many interests to ever be bored, and my brain is too active. When I used to run I'd think up math problems to solve while I ran, just to keep myself occupied while I ran. See? Never bored.
  15. The new vacuum that Jason got me, which is soooo much better than my old one.
  16. Burt's Bees lip balms.
  17. L.L. Bean Wicked Good Slippers.
  18. Patience.
  19. Hot baths.
  20. Soft, fluffy towels.
