Thanks A Lot

Friday, November 18, 2011

Today I have parent teacher conferences from 8-3 solid. No bathroom breaks. No lunch. Which really means some parents are going to have to wait while I go to the restroom and some are going to have to excuse me talking with my mouth full. Hopefully they will all be understanding with my prego self! Next week I am off the whole week, hallelujah! I decided to complete one of my own assignments that I gave in class to my students... what are five things you are thankful for? Although mine will be posted on a blog and not written on turkey feathers. :) 

1. husband
 Matt has been beyond helpful throughout my whole pregnancy. He dotes on my every need even when I whine. Here are some reasons why I love him... 
-he reads a daily devotional to me and Blair every night
-he gets off the couch when I yell at him in the shower to get me a towel
-he does dishes, takes out trash, feeds the pets etc.
-he massages/tickles my back upon request (unless he's asleep)
-he deals with baby stuff arriving almost daily and hasn't yelled at me (yet) for spending on Blair

seriously handsome

2. healthy baby blair
I LOVE this baby! And I can't wait to meet her. When I think about holding her for the first time I get so emotional. My entire perspective on life has changed and I am so excited to be a mommy.

3. our home
While it is small and not where I want to live for the next year or so, it is home. It has been good to us and I am thankful to have a roof over my head. I am working on being content with what I have here since it is so much more than what some people have.

4. job
Man will it be glorious to be done teaching! but, bittersweet because I have loved my job and quite honestly I think I'm good at it. (or that's what my principals say anyway!) Although I am itching to be done I am so blessed to have had a job as a teacher for the last five years, especially with California's economy. It's been no picnic being laid off every year but I have learned to trust God and not worry about it. He provides every time!

5. friends and family
Cliche, yes. but seriously I have the best family! I can't wait to see my mom in action as Gramma. :) I am so looking forward to walking with her and Blair in the mornings. I know she will be so helpful and I am thankful for that. While most of my girlfriends live far away I am still blessed by them often. It's always great to catch up right where we left off.

I hope you enjoyed all of my mushiness but 'tis the season to be mushy! It's Thanksgiving for goodness sake! Have a great weekend! I will be at the beach. And most definitely not in a bikini during my winter whiteness.
