Where Whine Meets Wine

Thankful For Weekends

on March 2, 2012

I’m aware today is actually Friday, but yesterday was a Friday of sorts for us. Biggest has been having some work done on his teeth due to… well, we’re not really sure. Either too much fluoride in the water when I was pregnant or something along those lines. Whatever it was, it caused his teeth to develop with spots of little to no enamel. So now they’re getting fixed, filled and pretty-fied. Today is his second trip (and he still has another one, or two visits after). He was scheduled for next week, but they had a cancellation today, so hubbyman decided to take the day off (*collective gasp* I know, right?!). So for us, last night was the beginning of our weekend!

I am thankful for a short week and a long weekend!

I am thankful for a husband who continues to consciously making an effort to make sure his family is at the top of his priorities.

I am thankful for a big, strong, brave big boy.

I am thankful for a dancing, talking, twirling, talking, singing, talking chatterbox of a MissE.

I am thankful for a littlest boy who makes an effort to make everyone around him smile and laugh.

I’m also thankful for dentists who are patient and gentle. Hubbyman’s been going with Biggest (because when I took him -to a different dentist- we had a horrible experience), so I haven’t witnessed it. But even after having to get the Novocain shot and work done, he happily went to the dentist again. He seems to really like his “tooth Doctor’s” (as he calls them).

I am thankful for in-laws who are coming tonight in for a visit. And how excited the kids are to see them.

And also the bottle of my father-in-law’s homemade plum port wine he’ll bring me (*fingers crossed*)- they’re good to me.

I’m thankful for a father-in-law (who not only makes wine!) but will be helping hubby with some projects

I am thankful for a day at the home & garden show this weekend- with Miss, Littlest, and my Mom-in-Law! So many ideas! And so many wine-slushy samples!

I am thankful that we finally have enough snow for sledding- and a hubbyman who’s made a point to come home early enough to go sledding with them (they’ve been promised another round this afternoon).

I am thankful for family and friends who keep me grounded and help my survival.

I am thankful for my virtual, blogging, interesting, funny friends that keep me feeling like maybe I am normal after all!

I am thankful for weekends!

May you find lots to be thankful for in your weekend too! Happy Friday!
