What I'm thankful for, 2009 edition

Every year I use Thanksgiving as a time to reflect upon what I am thankful for. Even though there are things that can be better in my life, there are so many things that are just simply good.

Here are some of the things I am thankful for in 2009:
  1. My sweet little family. I'm thankful for my husband who works his butt off to provide for us. And for my adorable, sweet, little, chubby cheeked, kissable, altogether delicious, baby boy who came into my life and changed everything in the best way. And of course I am thankful for the two most precious kitties in the world.
  2. I am thankful for the rest of my family and of course, my friends. They support me, love me, make me laugh, and listen when I cry. They gossip with me and talk to me for hours about things that matter like celebrity gossip, shampoo, and pets. I am truly lucky for them.
  3. On the note of friends, I am thankful that my BFF has found a guy that is kind and good and makes her happy. I am happy for her, and she totally deserves it.
  4. I'm thankful for everyone's health.
  5. I am thankful for my oh-s0-poorly insulated house. Even though the walls are empty, I am filling it up with memories that are so special to me.
  6. I don't think I would have survived this year without caffeine.
  7. I am thankful for Elmo and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. If I need to explain why, you don't get it.
  8. Oh, and Twilight for giving me the deliciousness that is Edward Cullen. Just so you know, I am talking about the book version, who in my mind is far more wonderful than RPattz. (Are you cringing a bit because I used the nickname? I totally am).
  9. Once again Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew makes the list. This time they are addicted to sex, but nonetheless, I still can not tear myself away.

A while ago the dear old husband and I bought a house. We were completely cliche about it, since I was with child, and we were making room for baby. I thought we needed another room because the baby needed a place to sleep. Little did I know, I would be co-sleeping and needed a room for just his stuff. Cause babies have an amazing amount of stuff, but at least it is cute stuff.

Anyway, Internet, there are loads of things that are great about owning a house. Primarily, that you can take a shower without worrying about your neighbor turning on their water and scalding you while you are using your deep conditioning treatment.

What is not so great? When you buy a house you buy its problems. And while I love this house, even in its unfinished state, we are freezing. Because we live in New England, it is November, and the windows are horrible. We might as well not have any. Guess we'll just have to blast the kind-of-broken-not-heating-up heaters this winter.
