Thankful Thursday...

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?


  1. YES I think a job is definitely a good idea for Trouble to have. And how awesome that Sunshine is taking dance so serious (even though it's expensive - I was a gymnast I totally remember).

    1. Oh yea, Sunshine's activities sure aren't cheap but her mother agreed to pitch for half so we got her enrolled in the dance intensive.

      Oh, Trouble...she needs more than a job most days but it's a start at least.

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

$10 at Target...

Yea, I was able to get to Target & get some goodies so I could link-up with one of my favorites!  Awhoo hoo!  If you wanna join in, visit Liz or any of the other hosts to linkup.  :)

Here is my haul:

Sunshine complained the other night that she needed more socks so I picked her up some.

I had to hit the clearance Easter stuff & picked these up for Paul.  He loves sour stuff so thought they would be right up his alley.  :)

I picked these up for myself.  I love them SO much & since I didn't make myself an Easter bag I figured I would grab these when they were 50% off.  Yum!

My grand total:  $10.96 Almost a dollar over but that's okay, I got some needed things.
