Rounding out the month

I have been thankful these last four days and have slacked on putting them up but I need to finish what I have started.

I am thankful for opportunities that present themselves at moments when we least expect them.
I am thankful for more family time and fun walks in the woods and getting to enjoy family traditions.
I am thankful for good movie theaters where you can salt and butter your own popcorn and sharing fun movies with Willa. (Is it sad I kind of want the soundtrack for Frozen?)
I am thankful for relaxing morning where I can shop online and wait for football.

I am not sure how people blog everyday....

Day 25 & Day 26: My Bad

I am thankful for warm quilts and blankets as the weather gets colder.  I am always cold but now that we don't have a fenced yard and have to eagle eye the dogs when they go out I am freezing by the time they are done.  But our plethora of blankets help that.

I am thankful for good blogs and message boards.  I follow several and it seems lately the message have really spoken to me.  I feel like I have been all over the board mentally and emotionally trying to figure out this crazy thing called life and they have helped. Or made it worse, it's a crapshoot I guess.

Day 23 & 24: I really thought I was caught up

I am thankful for travelling Montana friends that stopped by to see us. It was fun to catch up.

I an thankful for annoying Chargers fans that stood behind me that taught me restraint and that biting my tongue is taking the high road.

In other news I burned my tongue on hot chocolate on the way to the game because B hit the gas just as I was taking a drink.  Should have been a sign.

Day 22: Montana

I am thankful for our opportunity to live in Montana. Despite tge cold, the distance from things I loved it there. We put down roots,  made great friends (though many left, we met them there), my co-workers & clients were great.  I also know there were many other places we could have been stationed that I would not have enjoyed at all.

Day 21: Missouri

I am thankful Missouri is next to Kansas & that we had the opportunity to move here.

Day 20: Choice

I am so thankful that I live in a country, a time, and have the financial circumstances to have a choice in many things. I know things don't always seem the greatest but we are in a much better place than most people.  I try to constantly remind myself of that and keep that in perspective when things are going on.

Day 19: Games

I am on a day late trend here.  I am thankful for our game routine each night. We play before bedtime and we are certainly working on good sportsmanship. Our favorites have been candyland, guess who?, memory match and a few others. I don't always want to play but I know we are making memories.

Day 18: Combines

Yes, combines. I choose to be thankful for them despite being in a 3 mile caravan behind 3 of them when I am low on gas & trying to get to tumbling. Combines have certainly improved harvesting the food we eat & the food our food eats. I like to eat!

Day 17: The Chiefs

Despite their defeat last night and my being a day late, I am thankful for the KC Chiefs. I enjoy that teams can bring people together to cheer and show support. Sometimes I don't understand things but I do enjoy a good game.  It has been nice this year having something to cheer for.  We are once again hopeful in the Moylan household.

Day 16: The Wildcats

Kansas State has given me so many memories. FFA convention, games, great friends and ecen some classes. Can't beat that!

Day 15: My contact

Today I am thankful for my lone left eye contact. I only wear the one & makes it so much easier to drive.  I forgot to put it in today before I left for Kansas & man am I regretting it. Its time for a new eye appointment.

Day 14: My friends

I have some great friends all over the country and I get to see a few of them this weekend. But good friends can be hard to find so unfortunately for them I practically verbally throw up all over them when I see them.

Day 13: Utilities

After seeing several facebook statuses thus week of people's hot water heaters & furnaces conking out I am extremely thankful for a warm house and hot showers. I know others aren't as fortunate even on the best of days.

Day 12: The Library

I wrote this post in my head but then forgot to put it up.  I have so enjoyed our library here in Warrensburg.  We did story time several weeks in the summer and have enjoyed going to the craft times once a month.  I also enjoy reserving the books I want and then just being able to run in and grab them without having to hunt them down in the library.  The ladies have been so nice to us too.  The library is like its own little community.

Day 11: Veterans

Pretty easy to be thankful today for all the people that have protected this country each and every day and probably even before the USA existed.  Words will never do it justice.

Day 10: My sewing machine

While I am not a very good sewer or a very patient person, I certainly enjoy sewing projects and learning new things. I know stuff takes practice and I have been trying to get better.  I got some things done and a few things started today and it was a lot of fun.

Day 9: my family

I am very thankful for my parents, sister,  brother and new in-laws. Its so nice to have support, ears, muscles & helpful hands. Its even nicer when they are less than 2 hours away.

Day 8: Good food

I went grocery shopping today & as I walked the aisles I couldn't help but be thankful for our freezer full of meat & our cabinets of canned goods. I can certainly tell a difference in the foods we have been eating. We went out to eat with some friends last night & I had some fries and I just felt like junk afterwards. So I am glad we have access & resources to have good food.

Day 7: Books

I have been a lover of books since forever. I get lost in them, blocking out most everything. It helps slow down the hamster in my brain so I can relax.  I love series, I never want them to end. I also have a compulsion that usually ends up with a finished book at 3 am. I really can't help myself. I sure hope I can pass this love on to Willa. So far so good.

Day 6: B

He too drives me crazy...but I am still thankful. He is supportive of whatever I want to do (except maybe some craft projects) and is always happy to go on an adventure. He has helped me learn to be more spontaneous, step out of my comfort box and to have patience.

Day 5: Bosco & Belle

Our dogs drive me crazy sometimes but they do bring us joy. They are so good with Willa and have kept me company many nights.  Bosco is the best snuggler and Belle is always right there so she knows what is going on.  The Pook and Nosy are really a girls best friend.

Day 4: The little Chickie...won't let me post but just know she rocks!

Ah, it finally lets me type...Willa does rock. She makes us laugh everday, amazes us with her wit and brains. She knows no stranger and is truly a compassionate young lady. She just makes my days.

Day 3

Today I am thankful for transportation.  We have been able to travel to so many different places and see many things and without planes, trains, and automobiles it wouldn't be possible.

Day 2: A Fun Family Gathering

In continuation with our wedding yesterday it was so much to see all our family and friends and all the laughing.  Throw in a photobooth and hilariousness will ensue.  I can't wait to see all the pictures from the photographers and all the costumes.

Day 1 a Day Late

I have good reason for being a day late on Day 1.  My little sister got married and since it was her day I will start off the month being thankful for her and all the things she has done for me.  She is such a kind-hearted person.
