I've been busy and haven't updated my blog in awhile! Tonight seems like a good time to do that!
It's Thanksgiving Day and what better day to think of all the things we're thankful for, the things we often take for granted.
Today I ran my 2nd 5k, First, I need to say it was a fundraiser for cancer research. That brings me to to a reason to be thankful; my health-and my familys health (please place the apostrophe in the proper position (familys', families, none of those look right- I've totally forgotten all the things I was taught in school-it's been a few years).
Okay I do digress as usual.
Oh-yes-the 5k! That was so much fun, I am so addicted to 5k's now, I must enter another soon! Here's what I'm thankful for....being older! Yes, I found a positive about being older! You see, when you're in a 5k, female especially, in the "upper categories", you have more of a chance at getting a medal! So I glanced around to see what my competition might be. Not too many of "my kind" there! Guess what!? I won a silver medal...yep! I placed in the top three for my "age category"!! I haven't found out my time yet, but am curious to see what I ran. I should mention, my first 5k! I placed first in my "age category" (I won't mention the part about there only being one other woman in my age category, and she walked, and the fact that there were only about 45 runners all together!).
It goes without saying that I am thankful for my family. I am so lucky! My husband, Bob, is the best! In fact, after dinner, we were sitting around the table just chatting, all but Bob that is! He was cleaning up everything! At one point my friend Lori stopped and said "I feel like we should leave a tip for Bob since he's doing all this work!". (She actually did leave a great tip-a 6 pk of Christmas Ale~!).
I have three fantastic kids! Bob and I still can't figure out how the got so darn smart! We do know where they got their looks! (from me of course (hehe)
I am always thankful for the armed forces...and their families! What a sacrifice they are making for us! Can you imagine? These men and women are far away from their families during the holidays; their children are without one or two of their parents. Thank you so much for all you do for our country!
There are the simple pleasures in my life that I am also thankful for! I can't do a blog about being thankful without mentioning twitter! Non-twitter people can skip this part because you just won't understand! All of my twitter friends will understand! Thanks for cheering me on when I post about my 5k or when I tell you about a resent sale in one of my shops! Thanks for the RT's and for always viewing my new listings when I post them on twitter!
I could go on and on, but I won't; oh, except one more thing! I am thankful for my blog followers~! Thanks for reading my blog!
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season! As promised, I will be posting some vintage holiday decorating ideas very soon!!
My best to you,
