Thankful Thursday

First of all, I would like to tell you that I wrote this post in my head while running this morning.  Secondly, I would like to apologize if it is a little poorly written because I am writing it, post run, sitting on a towel with another towel in my lap to wipe the sweat off my hands and face while typing.

These are the things that I am thankful for this wonderful Thursday morning:
(wait a minute, add "backs of the knees" to the list of uses for the towel)

  • Wednesday night family dinners with my brother and his family.
  • Fall Break, because we have all been sleeping in this week.
  • Hamburger Helper being on sale for 89 cents a box.
  • Having enough coupons to allow me to buy 6 boxes for 66 cents each.
  • Already having ground beef for which I paid $1.99/lb.
  • Having the ability to cook wonderful meals from scratch but not being too proud to make Hamburger Helper.
  • Having a family that appreciates whatever food I make for them.
  • 75 degree temperature at 9:30am on a day that threatens to be triple digits.
  • The "shuffle" function on my iPod for the eclectic selection of music it provided to me this morning.
  • The Skinny B@#$% that I saw running this morning wearing a tube top and short shorts, for keeping me motivated.
  • The nice neighbor that had their sprinklers running as I turned the corner onto our street.
  • A refrigerator that dispenses ice cold water, that I needed so badly because it was 82 degrees by the time I returned home.

But seriously folks, the true things that I am thankful for are:
  • Life
  • Health
  • Family and Friends (however far away)
  • Shelter
  • Food
  • And.........still being able to donate the Hamburger Helper to charity should my family become sick of it!
