This whole gratitude thing

My sister is doing a "30 days of gratitude" thing on facebook, and I thought I'd follow her example but do it here rather than there.  I also thought that I'd focus more on the day to day and what I'm grateful for in a particular point in time. 

I missed the first couple days of the month, so here's a recap of what I'm grateful for so far this month:

Tuesday, November 1st: I went to lunch with a friend at a Sri Lankan restaurant at her suggestion.  I had never tried Sri Lankan food, not because I have anything against it but because we only have one Sri Lankan restaurant in Santa Cruz and it's kind of a whole in the wall that I just never think of when trying to come up with where to go on those nights that we eat out. So, I had lunch there and it was delicious.  On that day I was thankful for the good company and the good food.

Wednesday, November 2nd: Both Brian and I had the day off and we got quite a bit done including pulling boxes of baby stuff out of the rafters of the garage (Brian's job) and going through them (my job). It was an exhausting day and by the end of it, my back just ached. Like enough to put me in a grumpy mood.  So I went and curled up on my bed to try to relieve the pain.  So, yesterday I was grateful that Brian had the day off and took care of Joshua and got him ready for bed and for my nice comfortable bed.

Today, Thursday, November 3rd: We've been sleeping in past 7:30 recently.  Which is nice, except on days when Brian has to be at work at 9.  On those days, he jumps straight into the shower and then heads off to work by 8, leaving me to get myself and Joshua ready for the day.  It used to be that on these days, I would get up and get ready at 7 so that I'd be ready before Brian had to leave.  But I just can't make myself get up anymore (I'm already getting up multiple times during the night to go to the bathroom or to tuck Joshua back into bed).  So this morning, I'm grateful for Scooby-Doo movies that hold Joshua's attention for at least 20 minutes so that I can enjoy a hot shower in peace.  For me, an interrupted shower just doesn't start the day in the right way!
Yay for Scooby-Doo and the gang!
