Day 24 - My Sarcastic List of Thankful Things




I'm thankful that Yankee Candles smell so much like vanilla cupcakes, that my kids think I have been baking for them all day when they are handed a store-bought treat.

I'm thankful for my dark wood floors that allow me to see every single spec of dust or crumb that falls on it. There's no need to wonder if the floor is dirty - AGAIN!

I'm thankful for removable spray heads in the shower, so that I can squirt off the Soft Scrub on the walls, in between shampooing and conditioning. Multi-tasking at it's best!

I'm thankful for the hands-free headset I use every day to talk to my girlfriends on the phone while I'm picking up the house or doing other domestic duties. And for cheap long distance service too!

I'm thankful that the kids have 5 days off from school during Thanksgiving break. It will give me the chance to remember why I'm thankful that it's only five days off.

I'm thankful for Kleenex coming in boxes of 1,000 sheets, so that I will never tire of finding the lone tissue that makes its way into the washer or dryer with the clothes...at least once a week this time of year.

I'm thankful that the batteries are dying in my bathroom scale, and when I stand on it, it just says "Low"...

I'm thankful that I can fill up my gas tank now for under $30, instead of close to $70! Now I have more money to spend on Vodka.... KIDDING!
