thankfuls {weekend edition}

Everyone either loves that their Facebook feed fills up with thankful posts all month, or they get annoyed. I am sitting on the fence about it. I don't feel the need to tell people on Facebook how thankful I am for Paul or my kids, I try to show them daily. I do love reading when people say how thankful they are for sweat pants, heaters, cozy beds, etc. I like seeing the little things people are thankful for that you don't always think about. 

I decided that I wanted to keep track of the little thankfuls I have all day, and come up with a post at the end of every day until Thanksgiving. I am also going to be "unplugging" from the Internet more during the day to try to "live in the moment" as Cathy and I put it. 
I am thankful for a vacuum. Sabrina decided to dump an entire bowl of popcorn on the carpet, and dance in it. Gah, can you imagine how hard the clean up would have been without a vacuum?

I am thankful for OnDemand. Devin barks out his order for shows, and I can fulfill his requests easily.
I am thankful for drugs. Drugs for pain, drugs for depression, drugs for has helped us out a lot lately.

I am thankful for my camera. I really do love that I can capture all these little moments with my kids. I am definitely not a photographer, but until I convince Paul to hire someone to follow us around and do it for me...I will have to do my best.
I am thankful every day for early bedtimes.

Oh my gosh, I am so thankful for that last one. And for you. :)

I remember a time in my childhood when we didn't have a vacuum. My mom assigned us a number and we had to get on the floor and pick up that many crumbs. I thought it was a fun game.
