Are you happy now, Mom?

This Thursday I am thankful for:

Only being called a 'mean old thing' six times today instead of the usual ten.

Being told 'I am sorry' for hitting and screaming and crying after thirty minutes of maniacal hitting and screaming and crying.

Hot coffee, strawberry pancakes and crock pot stew.

An hour with my sewing machine.

A few hours spent laughing with my family.

A deep bathtub filled to the edge with hot water and scented bubbles.

Having finally de-Christmas-fied my house, although my mantel looks oh so sad.

The small flock of chickadees that hung out by my kitchen window during my cup of coffee.

Lighting a fire in the fireplace - it was pathetic but it cheered me up.

My brown velour blanket - it is the Calgon version of a blanket, ahhhh.

I'm laughing at your first item! One time when I was little and misbehaving, my mother sent me to my room. About a half hour later, she came upstairs to put the laundry away and she heard me tell my Barbies, "You need to be quiet now--here comes the Wicked Old Witch." She just leaned on the doorframe in hysterics.
