Good morning! Where did this week go? I had every intention of writing daily this week and all of a sudden it is Thursday. 

Daylight savings time always does this to me. 


I tried to put Cora to sleep at 6 the other night. Sigh. 

On a more positive note, here is what I am thankful for this week:

  1. Ina not getting too hurt when she face planted on her trip to Burr Oaks this week. I think she freaked out at first due to the blood, but once she came home she seemed perfectly fine.
  2. My replacement FitBit! My FitBit Charge stopped charging (ironic?) and after a very long conversation with FitBit customer services, and now how a few one! 
  3. Frozen vegetables! Seriously, I almost forgot how amazing these are - already prepped and no worry about them going bad. My current favorites are fresh green beans and chopped kale. 


  1. Checking things off my to-do list. So re-charging.
  2. A quick and easy car estimate. Who knew that a little scratch would cost over a grand to fix?
  3. Having a movie that the whole family can enjoy together. Goonies FTW.

  1. Waking up at 4:30 on a rest day and having plenty of time to plan for meals, birthday parties, the holidays, etc. 
  2. Garage parking. Please don’t let me give this up.
  3. Family park date. It was fantastic to have no plans on a Saturday night other than playing at the park.

  1. Having friends in high places (friends with free suite Chiefs tickets!)
  2. Teresa watching the girls while Dan and I had a fun day.
  3. Early bedtime. I am so old. 


  1. An “easy” mobility workout.
  2. Danielle watching the girls extra long so Dan and I could go to counseling. She is the best.
  3. Trader Joe’s easy meal options, so that after work, and then counseling, we still can have dinner at home. I bought their pre-cooked chicken patties and Dan sizzled those up while I roasted some baby potatoes and green beans. Dinner was on the table in 20 minutes and the girls loved it. 


  1. No lines at my voting station. 
  2. My replacement credit card came in the mail. Want to decrease your spending? Lose your card. Ha!
  3. Watching the election coverage with Ina and explaining the process to her. I think I learned a few things myself.

  1. I live in a democracy. That is about as political as I will get. :)
  2. Flu shots at my work. So easy! 
  3. Dinner with family! I had some delicious white pizza, but my stomach wasn’t very happy about that decision this morning. Ha!

What are you thankful for?
