Ten things I am grateful for right this minute:
1~Swimming for FHE? Yes, please. The tired kids that come with it? Even better.
2~A wonderful, successful recital this past weekend. It was the most ambitious group recital I've ever done, and I'm so grateful it's over.
3~The best part of the recital being over? One completely lesson-free week. That means 5 blessed weekdays this week without a 6:30 am lesson. Yes, life is good.
4~Warm socks, a hoodie, and very large blanket.
5~Cold sore medicine.
6~Kneader's pumpkin spice bread brought to me by a sweet violin family.
7~The anticipation of a new novel on my kindle tonight.
8~Text messages. And the friends who have day-long conversations with me via text messaging. (Seriously, what did we ever do when we had to actually pick up the stupid phone...?)
9~My sweet husband sitting next to me, both of us typing away on our respective laptops, keeping each other company.
10~A (mostly) clean house. Or at least the part I can see. Because let's face it, even if my house hosted its own Armagheddon today, I wouldn't be doing anything about it tonight.
