Giving Thanks

   Sometimes it's hard to be thankful. We get caught up in things that aren't the greatest, and we forget to be grateful for the good things. The thing is, is that sometimes things really do suck. Things that happen do affect us, positively and negatively. Sometimes it helps to count our blessings, and other times it just makes you feel worse for being ungrateful. I still think it's very important to remember our blessings.

I'm thankful for;
  • Cats
  • Love
  • Internet
  • Friends + Family
  • Books
  • Makeup
  • Stairs
  • Warmth
  • Shoes
  • Seasons

   Gratitude is a beautiful thing. :) Have a great Thanksgiving!

   I also would like to say that stairs are incredibly hard to build if you have no idea what you're doing. My dad and I worked on that today and wow! I would never thought it would've been so hard to do something that sounds relatively simple.

As We Wait

   I'm currently watching the election coverage. Dude, this is stressful. We all have our opinion on the election, and now it's here. It's finally happening. We're here! How did we survive the last few months? Can our new president be worse than Obama? Gosh, I hope not.
   Everything these last few days has been election, election, election. Everything in the coming days is going to be the same old song and dance, just with trying to repeal the winner. But I didn't come here to rant about the election, I came here to give you something else to think about.
   I am growing addicted to matte lipsticks! I got a few tubes from work that were free (the tubes were damaged) and I was using them. I was never fond of that 'my lips are as dry and wrinkly as a old woman in the Sahara' feel, but the ones I was using weren't as bad as I remembered. I recently purchased my first tube and I love it. It's a Milani one. It's decently long lasting. It holds well to wear around, but after you eat, you need to reapply. Not too much of a hassle.
   I've gotten back into playing spider solitaire. I love that game! I used to play it frequently when I was younger, but I quickly snapped the habit after our old computer died. One of my friends plays spider solitaire, which is cool, cause I like her, and I also like spider solitaire.
   One of my favorite coworkers is moving to South Carolina, so that's a bummer. She's a super sweet lady, and I'll miss having her around. On the bright side, I'll probably get her section, which sounds like an interesting task. It'll be cool cause she has the candy/cookie section. Yum!
   I'm currently reliving my favorite VeggieTales Silly Songs. My favorite one is Pizza Angel. It's the best one ever. I want to sing it for my homeschool group variety show. We'll see. Here's a link to Pizza Angel. You're welcome. :)
