Things I'm Thankful For

I'm thankful....

  • That we didn't move our master bedroom into the basement yet, since it flooded with 2 inches of raw sewage this morning.
  • That I have a clothesline outside to hang my clothes on because when the spin cycle broke today and the clothes were left sopping wet I could still hang them to dry.
  • That I had rubber boots with cherries on them to brighten my day as I mopped up chunks from the basement.
  • That we never got around to putting new carpet in the basement yet and that the flood only covered the areas that were linoleum or cement.
  • That I have a recipe box full of chocolate goodies and I'm about to cook EVERY single one of them because it's not even noon and I need them in a bad bad way.

Calgon, take me away, right??!!

I feel for you so bad today....throw open your windows and doors and drink in the glorious sunshine while you mop.

Sunshine and chocolate make any day better!

Thinking of you!

oh no. You deserve all that chocolate, but do you really want to be eating something creamy and brown after what you cleaned up this morning????

Ugh! I'm sorry! My flood was just rain water, and that was nuisance enough!! And now after Jane's comment, I won't be able to think about eating chocolate for at least a month! Thanks a lot, Jane! ;)
Praying for you, friend! I'm proud of you for striving for an attitude of gratitude! Keep it up!

Oh my. That happened to my sister last fall.

I think Chocolate is just what the Dr. ordered for today.

Maybe your word verification is feeling for you... the word is:
"outureog"... looks like it needs dictionary help with spelling "outrage". Ha ha.

Screw the diet. I've had a migraine for the last 7 or 8 hours.

I'm with you. Let's self medicate today. :)

Raw sewage...mopping up "chunks"...Hmmmmmm? And you're still able to convey some humor to us in the post. I'm not sure if I'd have the spirit on energy for it! But maybe you've already self medicated with some chocolate ;) Really though. So sorry. It just sounds awful!

Oh. My. Goodness.
You are amazing.
Wish I could whisk you away from it all.
