Thankful Thursday


Well, in the middle of the night last night as I cleaned up puke and more puke ALL over the house, I wasn't feeling very thankful. But this morning, well, I am Thankful for disinfectants!! I'm hoping Kaeden is the only one that is infected with this and my disinfectant does its job! Now, I can be thankful I have a washing machine and don't live in the 1800's when I would have had to do all the extra wash by hand. And I am thankful my son is lying on the couch watching cartoons, and he seems to be feeling a bit better than he was between 1 and 5 this morning. And I am thankful I have a portable DVD player and can snuggle back into my bed with him while he watches a movie and I can fall back to sleep and catch up on all those missed hours dealing with a sick kid. And, I am thankful that I am a SAHM, because I have the option to be here when my son needs me, and I can go back to bed for a nap, and don't have to worry about losing my salary, losing my job, or finding alternate childcare. That truly is something to be thankful for!

Oh I am just now making it to the rest of the Thankful posts. I sure hope no one else got sick. It is sad how we take those little things like disinfectants for granted.

I hope he feels better!
