Thankful Thursdays #35: a clean house

Posted on

I made a thanksgiving resolution to find something to be thankful for every day until next Thanksgiving.  Here’s what I am thankful for this week!

Thursday: I was able to wriggle out of helping my hubby help a friend of his move.  OK, so I’m terrible, but I’m still thankful for the time to myself.

Friday: Pay day! ‘Nuff said.

Saturday: Got to see the final Harry Potter in 3-D at the IMAX theater, and had a gift certificate to help pay for it!

Sunday: Dark chocolate. It helped me through a day of feeling yucky.

Monday: Little boy voices.  Sure, little girl voices are sweet, but I’m especially fond of little boy voices.  It’s kind of like how I think large-breed baby animals are cuter than small-breed baby animals.  Boys will lose that precious tiny voice and develop a deeper one with time.  So will girls, but not to  the same degree.  And maybe because I have a nephew, I just find their voices enchanting.  And I love how they misuse pronouns, saying things like, “why is her doing that?” and “why did her say that?”  I heard a little boy that sounded just like my nephew at Wendy’s and the sound of his voice was so much better than anything else in my entire day.  Love little boys.  I miss my nephew.

Tuesday: I took the day off to go to a motivational seminar, but I skipped it so I could stay home to clean.  I thought I would regret it, but I don’t.  I missed Bill Cosby and Terry Bradshaw, among other VIPs that were speaking, but I now have a (fairly) clean house and no regrets.  Besides, Dennis went so I’ll be motivated by the motivation he got from the seminar. :)

Wednesday: I finished the house cleaning by attacking the floors. Yay for clean floors!  See, I’m motivated enough without going to a seminar.  If I’d went, I’d be running for president and believe me, nobody would benefit from that. :)

About Veronica

I have a kitchen addiction and love to collect & share recipes. My passion is baking but I love to cook as well. The only thing I don't like to do in the kitchen is wash dishes, but my husband generally does them for me in exchange for his dinner.

  1. Hi Veronica,
    I am glad you are motivated! Send some of that motivation my way! :) Girl, you running for president, we would have a white house full of sweet goodness, and that’s a whole lot better than the wing nuts that we have in office right now! :)


  2. I’m also liking the idea of you as President. Lots of BBQ’s, parties and plain ole fun! Oh, please put a pool in for me, you know I love my pool parties ;) I’ll help you cook too.


  3. The benefit of you being President would be free cake pops for everyone!
    And time to oneself can be so precious. If enough time goes by without some quiet time to myself, I feel like life is just whirling by at reckless speeds. It helps to stop and be still.


  4. Love your thankful posts….when we look, you are correct, there is always something to be thankful for…too often we focus on the negatives and not the positives in life!


  5. How was the Harry Potter movie like in 3-D? Was it better? Personally 3-D makes my head spin!

    I also prefer little boy voices (actually I prefer the whole boy) to little girls. Little girls can get on my nerves sometimes. I like mischievous imps.


    • 3-D is cool, but I can take it or leave it b/c after a while, I forget I’m watching it in 3-D and I don’t notice it any more. Thankfully it doesn’t make me sick like it does some. I thought I preferred little girls, but I think I might be coming around. :)


  6. Clean houses are always something to be thankful for!
