Thankful Thursdays: Feeling better and amusing husband edition

I'm thankful that I'm feeling good! The aches are pretty much gone, and I just feel so.much.better. hallelujah.

I'm thankful that today is Thursday, and tomorrow, no kids come to school. Teachers just come in for a few hours to get some work done, and hooray--then we get to leave at 11:30am.

I'm thankful for Dunkin Donuts coffee on a morning like today. Don't worry, it's decaf. But, it still does a body good.

I'm thankful for the opportunity to get my Masters degree for free. [I have to write this, to encourage myself to do my school work tonight...I'm so dreading it.]

I'm thankful for a weekend of no real plans. Oh how I LOVE them. Carefree.

I'm thankful I finally got my hair highlighted! I felt much better going since being in the 2nd trimester, and since I've basically been pregnant since May (with the miscarriage), it's been long overdue getting this mop taken care of.

I'm very thankful for substitutes who graciously come in and teach my class, leaving no notes of bad things that eases my mind to know that it's okay to stay home when I feel sick.

I'm thankful for a husband who makes me laugh, often.
Like, last night, for 2am when he jumped OVER his pregnant, already doesn't sleep too well-wife to flick on the lights because,

"I saw a hairy spider crawl across the floor!!"

I woke up, very calm after being trampled, actually and said,

"Babe, there is NO way you saw a spider, it's pitch black in here." (Remember? We sleep like it's a cave. I still hold to the story of...HE was totally dreaming.)

He searched around the room for a few minutes and then I finally convinced him there was no spider (we don't really get too many as it is, especially big, hairy ones!).

He still proceeds to believe there is indeed a spider on the floor of "his side" of the he then decides to spoon me so tight and very much on my side of the bed (as if I would protect him if that darned thing came near us...heck-to-the-NO), that I ALMOST FELL OFF THE BED.

There was no spider. I'm stickin' to it.

Happy Thursday!

  10. I’m glad that you’re feeling better and will be able to relax some over the next few days! That is awesome that your job is paying for your Master’s. You also just reminded me that I need highlights in a bad way.

    The spider story is very funny and something that would happen in my house for sure. That is Geof’s biggest fear.
