I am thankful that Ina wanted something nutritious like beans for breakfast yesterday.
Plain, cold, red kidney beans straight from a can. She loves them. However, Ina’s love for beans does have its downside, ifyouknowwhatImean, which I am not-so-thankful for.
I am thankful that my office has a mustard dispenser in the cafeteria, because chili without mustard is just sad, even if it is pumpkin chili.
I was not so thankful for the juiciness of that orange. Seriously, I had to take soap and water to my desk afterwards. Or wait, I should have taken soap and water to my desk afterwards. Dang it, now my desk is sticky.
I am thankful that I squeezed in a temp run (increasing the pace every minute and ending in a sprint) and an arm burner yesterday.
I am not-so-thankful for that I increased the weight from 10 to 12.5 pounds, which made my 2nd round of bicep curls near-impossible. Ouch.
I am thankful my in-laws stayed the night last night to watch Ina today AND they made us dinner.
I am not-so-thankful that Dan said he was happy to be able to eat some “American food,” whatever that means. I told him if he wanted American food he should have married an American girl. Which probably confused him, because technically I am an American, I just prefer other cuisines.
I am thankful that Dan picked me some wildflowers yesterday. Such a simple act can make a girl feel pretty special.
I am not-so-thankful for Ina’s interest in the flowers. She kept on climbing the table and and saying, “Drink. Bite. Drink.” Weird?
Mostly, I am thankful that the things I am not-so-thankful for are very minor, like a gassy/curious child, a drippy orange, weak arms, and a husband that prefers meatloaf over curry.
What are you thankful for?
