The top five things I'm thankful for today...
1. John will be home soon! Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock.
He's been in San Diego since Monday. I've probably said it umpteen bajillion times before, but neither of us is our best when we're apart. Traveling is a necessary part of J's job but we're both happiest when we're together.
2. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee.
I sleep very little when John is gone. And by very little, I mean a few hours each night. I'm so thankful for coffee to keep me going because I am a walking zombie without it. I'm afraid to tell you how many cups I've had each morning this week. Your productivity level soars when you begin your day at 4am with massive amounts of caffeine. Just sayin'.
3. Our gorgeous weather.
This is the first time in the 7+ years we've lived here that we didn't see snow in the month of October. We've had some cold days and we've begun to dip into the teens and twenties at night BUT this is the mildest fall we've had in ages. I am not complaining one bit. I like snow but I'd love for it to hold off a little longer! Our winters are long.
4. I have the whole day at home!
I think I'm going to finish up the few things on my list I didn't get done between the hours of 4-7am (ha!) and then read. I have three books beside my bed: The Hunger Games, The Heretic's Daughter, and The Namesake. I can't decide which to read first. Suggestions? Of course if I sit down to read, chances are good that my eyes will close and I'll be able to nap. If the caffeine wears off.
5. A date with my favorite 8-year-old girl tonight.
We have big plans to shop for things to fill her shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. She's also requested an ice cream stop. I just can't say no to her sweet little freckled face so that's on the list for tonight too!
Hope your Thursday is off to a great start!
