I'm thankful that lil Miss Sunshine is wanting to be so involved in things - dance & gymnastics. I'm just afraid that she's going to take too much on. I told her that she should concentrate on one or the other & she's currently doing dance. We currently have her signed up for Jazz & Musical Theater & she's thinking that she would like to try to get into Pointe. I spoke with her instructor & it was suggest that she join Ballet 4 & see how the ankles hold up & then possibly be pushed up to Pointe. Also, she'll have a head start if we get her signed up for the week of Dance Intensive where they do every kind of dance plus a Pilates session for one week from 9:00 to 5:00. Paul & I are discussing that especially since it's $300 to enroll her. If we could get her mother to pay half of it, then it would be doable. So, we'll see.
I'm thankful that Trouble finally got a job. The work permit was handed in yesterday & they will contact her with information about her first day. She'll be working at a local pizza joint as a dishwasher/cook. It'll be really good for her to have a job. I told her that she needs to get the job, keep the job & start saving some money & then we'll talk about her possibly buying my car (& me getting a new one - woot!). I've had to make it real clear to her that no job equals no car. So, she's gotta work which is something she doesn't do much of.
I'm thankful that my husband keeps me around even though I'm a complete bitch. I'm trying to get better with my crankiness & as long as he & I are in discussion mode about the girls, we're good. I just don't know why he's with me sometimes but I'm thankful that he is cuz I do love him...even though he thinks that I'm trying to be Susan Sarandon to our local baseball team (you can read about that here - ha!).
What are YOU thankful for on this Thursday?
