Trying to get back on the blogging wagon with some things I'm thankful for.
I'm thankful for a son who likes to run with his mommy. Robert ran his second 5K back the end of April and he improved his time by 8 1/2 minutes on a hilly cross country course!
I'm thankful for a husband who "puts up" with my running. He doesn't mind watching the boys so I can get my running in, and he can tell if I haven't run enough lately because I start getting crabby. Then he'll make me go run.
I'm thankful for a wonderful chain of command at work. They've allowed me time off to take care of sick kids (Thomas has pink eye right now) and time to get my house ready to be packed for our move. I guess it pays being a good Soldier and making sure you get done what you need to get done. After close to a dozen bags full of trash and 5 or 6 boxes of stuff to Goodwill, our house is about 80% ready to be packed. We still have some work to do in the shed and garage, Robert's room, and the craft room, but progress has definitely been made and we're looking at actually having an organized pack this time!
I'm thankful for a super awesome church family. I will miss my choir family most of all when we move – it has been an awesome 3 seasons with the Chancel Choir at Sierra Evangelical Lutheran Church. Our church family there has been just as wonderful, and I hope our next church is at least half as wonderful.
I'm thankful that the Tooth Fairy has finally visited our house! Robert lost his first tooth Tuesday morning. The Tooth Fairy brought him a gold $1 coin.
I'm thankful for the wonderful weather we have here in Arizona. I'm going to miss that when we move – either I'm going to have to get a treadmill or do a lot more running in the rain in Alabama.
I'm thankful for my parents. I know they love me and that's all a girl needs! Even a 36-year-old needs her mommy (and daddy) once in a while!
