Giving Thanks..Flip Flop Style

I had a post here, but then decided to scrap it, as this will likely be my only post this week as I have shit to do...Like go turkey huntin, skin it, stuff it..u know, the usual stuff.

I thought I would list things I am thankful for along with pics to coincide with some of them...

* I am thankful it has not snowed yet...Yes it is a big deal, and it is something to be thankful for...

* I am thankful my son is the teachers project, it gives me something to blog about.

* I am thankful my kids are small, cause I kinda like this..

Granted I will love it when I can sit in the tub with out Dora's hand going up my ass.

* I am thankful the ole hubby has been able to put up with me for the last 15+ years and nearly 13 years of marriage. He is one lucky asshat..

* I am thankful I got to see my grandpa before he died. I am thankful I got to tell him I loved him, I am thankful he got to tell me he loved me, I am thankful I got to hold his hand as he took his last breath...

* I am thankful for my mom...she can be a handful sometimes, but she sure is a swell ole gal..

* I am thankful for my dad, although I don't talk to him as much as mom...I know if I were to be thrown in jail, he would be the first to bail me out...

*I am thankful for what few damn friends I have..Although I make fun of them on a daily basis, give them shit, and don't let them share the mic on karaoke night, I still love them all.

* I am thankful that some nights I don't have to cook dinner, cause they can at the kibble from the cat bowl..

* I am thankful I have three kids, I am thankful for the stretch marks, the weight gain, the stress, the report cards, the chaos that three kids brings..

*I am thankful for Def Leppard...When I have a shitty day, I can toss a CD in and instantly wanna rock...I still proceed with the shitty day, but at least the music is loud.

I took that pic this summer at the Detroit show...I am also thankful I can afford to buy good seats, thankful I have met them, and thankful the world tour of 2008 will start in the next 4 months...

* I am thankful for Prince...Thankful he did not come and sue me for my tattoo and me putting him on youtube...Because of he would of come to my house, chances are he would of fallen in love and I wold of had to run away with him...then the kids and hubby would often heart broken, and we cant have that.

* I am thankful for karaoke...because it kicks ass, and I fucking rock at it...I am thankful I can pretend to be a rock star, when indeed I am not and never will be..

* I am thankful for my family....

even the ones who are no longer here, but my heart breaks for daily..

Oh and if your on my X-mas card list....u will be seeing this..

*I am thankful for bloggers, if not for you guys, I would be writing this shit for my own pure enjoyment...I heart u guys..every last one of ya..

* I am thankful Weight Watchers, cause after seeing these pics, I see I need to drop a good 50 pounds...sonofabitch.

Happy Thanksgiving, and here is a video, the kids are saying what they are Thankful for...

I don't believe mom was mentioned.

I love the picture with all the damn toys in the tub...I can remember when mine stayed that way. Thankfully Trish cleans it out everyday now :)

Have a great Thanksgiving!

The Kept Woman said...


That is SO wrong that your kid is eating out of the cat bowl.

Rachel said...

A great list! That bathtub reminds of my great niece's bathtub. I'm sure her parents are glad now that they don't have to take their baths in her tub and risk getting Dora up their behinds!! That was so funny!!

Your kids are so cute! I love the video!!

The family portrait is great!! Your son looks a little wild eyed though!! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!

You sure are thankful for A LOT!!!!!
You have many blessings, and you have great flair in talking about them.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your wonderful family. Forget Weight Watchers for now, cuz Rev. JD says that gluttony is not a sin on holidays.
Eat well, my friend!!
