Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I saw a spark of the girl I used to know in Trouble last night.  We had a little scare yesterday, she had been texting me that she wasn't feeling well & then I get a call from Paul that his mom took her to the doctor & that they thought it may be her appendix but they had to do a CT scan & all that.  I sent a note asking if she would like me to be there or not.  I got a message back pretty much right away that said:  "come here".   I told the office manager, sent my boss an email as she was with a client & left.  Long story, short, she had an ovarian cyst that burst.  She sat & talked to me last night & she may actually have a plan for after high school!  Now, she just needs to put the plan into action.  Before she went to bed, she came over to me, gave me a hug, thanked me for coming to her & that she loved me.  There it is!  That's the girl I knew!  I've seen these sparks before & I always get hopeful that she'll remain that girl only for her to turn around & be "naughty" again.  I guess we'll see.

I am thankful...that this weekend I'll be going away for the weekend to a cottage for my cousin's bachelorette party.  There is only going to be eleven of us & there is a hot tub, a fire pit & a lake there.  I'm hoping that it'll be a peaceful weekend but I guess we'll see.  I did offer to bring Cards Against Humanity to play cuz that's always a good time.  Tee hee!

I am thankful...that tonight we have no plans.  I wanna sit on the couch watching Heroes & that's it before I eventually relocate to my bed to read & play on my Kindle.  I want an easy evening especially after yesterday afternoon/evening, I need some down time.

What are YOU thankful for on this Thursday?


  1. I'm glad your stepdaughter was able to see that yes, you will drop everything to be with her during a time of need...and that she appreciated it. Have so much fun this weekend - it sounds like it should be fab!!

    1. It was really nice to be appreciated by her, I just hope that it lasts.

      The weekend was great & much needed. :)

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!

$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.
