  2. I'm grateful for online shopping--everything has been delivered and is now wrapped and ready to go. Yeah!

    I'm grateful that Portia and Babs will be home for a couple of weeks.

    I'm grateful that my wonderful sister-in-law suggested that we NOT try to put on our usual ginormous Christmas Day dinner for a cast of thousands and instead make a big brunch and tell people just to keep on snacking. Hooray!!!

    And I'm grateful for the second season of my guilty pleasure, " Project Runway" which airs a new episode tonight. It's SO bad it's good.

  3. Thankful for items which I have ordered, and about which I have forgotten, that come in the mail!

    Whee! What a great feeling to have a package!

    and that there were two new books for ME in the package, and one for Brandon: the complete Chronicles of Narnia. :)

  5. I thought of you and your "thankful lists" this past Sunday. It's been a tough year and I've had a hard time being grateful lately, but this last Sunday at the rather large church I have been visiting, they had an old-fashioned Southern style gospel quartet that did a peppy gospel song with the choir and I enjoyed it so much and I was grateful that that church did not deem themselves too sophisticated to have a little taste of gospel music in their service.

    I know some see it as cheesy music, but it lifts my spirits everytime I hear it.

    So, thanks for making me look for something to be grateful for by setting an example on your blog.

  7. I'm thankfull for movies, games and lots of people to play with. I'm thankful that I'm pretty much done with shopping and that my family has Christmas on New Year's which gives me another week to get things done.

    I'm thankful for cokes. And that tin of assorted nuts that the software contractor sends the office each year. I think I'll go indulge in it right now!!

    I'm thankful for friends that understand pain at Christmas, who share their family and offer comfort and love without thought of receiving and who send you links to sites like http://cuteoverload.com because they know it will make you smile when there's not a lot to smile about. I'm also thankful for long distance friends who embrace you with love and understanding and make you see the world as a better place. Thank you, Princess.

  9. Um...

    Ok. I'm not usually the type to air personal business in public settings, but I thought perhaps your e-friends might be of help and support in your time of loss.

    What loss, you ask? Well. Um. One of your fish has demised himself in your office aquarium, while you have been gone. We questioned the other fish thoroughly and although he remains a suspect, we have no evidence of foul play at this time.

    The main reason I felt the need to burden your holiday break with this information is that when we tried to perform funerary duties as we saw fit (I had a lovely eulogy prepared and Rose was going to sing. ChevyPickup was going to officiate over the eucharist.) we couldn't find the net.

    So, do you have any suggestions on how we should remove the body? (Rose suggested a steak fork or tongs. Luckily we don't access to either of those implements either.)

    By the way, Rose is adamant that although she did, in fact, discover the remains, she is not a suspect. ChevyPickup is trying fingerprint Rose and things are starting to get a bit ugly.

  10. Oh! Never mind! ChevyPickup just found a ladle!

  11. Well, of course, I am grateful for you, Mindy. And I have to say that we really missed you at the Sunday school party. Great food and sweet entertainment (the "a capella" high school choir). You could have brought Bebo. Have fun this weekend.

  12. You got a good son, there.

    The fish has died? Oh dear me. We had one pass sometime during the huricane and unfortunately, it was some time before we discovered his little puffed up carcass floating in the murky water. We had no running water at the time so we could not flush him away. We had to spread his remains in a far corner of our yard.
