thankful thursday

things i am thankful for this week:

for the rain--oh, i love it in the summer time! but us southern-yeewwtahhhns call it "moisture".

for every single day in my life that i have NOT had "kankles"--my leg basically goes just straight down in one large piece from my knee. it gives mindi issues. it's like when i get the mother of all cold sores and i keep thinking, "why am i not grateful every second i DON'T have one of these??" i need to work on gratitude for the little things.

for bailey's "girl's summer camp"--she's kamari's daughter who's put on a girl's week-long daily "camp" where they can go and make crafts and have activities. my girls have been in heaven. and have i mentioned that they are gone for TWO hours every day from 10:30-12:30?? best investment i've made all year.

for puzzles with mia--being 4th child, poor little lady gets the shaft sometimes. i used to spend hours with katie either reading books, doing puzzles, coloring, etc. now? yeah....not so much. i sat down with her the other day and we did puzzles for about 40 minutes and just seeing the sheer joy on her face when she saw that i was gonna sit there through the WHOLE THING and hand her puzzle pieces one by one was just priceless. i wuv her.

for "so you think you can dance"-- i know, i know---so lame, predictable, cliche, and OH-SO-"bloggerish" of me. but i can't help myself. i got sucked right in. my favorite dances last night? katee and will in "imagine" (got all choked up--pms much?), joshua and courney in "skippin' ", and when comfort and twitch straight KILLED IT in "forever"--i am a comfort hata, but i gotta give the girl her dues on that one. it was off the chain.

I have NEVER seen your "kankles". But I will admit this is one that I am now grateful for myself. And "summer camps". Truman is going to a sports camp next week and he can't wait. It's not just 2 hrs, it's from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. he is so excited. is it bad that so is his mom? ;)

AHHHH I dvr'd SYTYCD last night and haven't seen it yet. I'm so in love with all the girls right now and was so happy to see Comfort go cause that meant that the others stayed.....

I say anything that gets the girls occupied for a little bit is priceless-as you know 5 girls - five trama- drama and the whole bit, I tell their friends 100.00 bucks if you play with them at yur own house

We're thankful for the moisture which we've received....I'd forgotten about that well used phrase.

I want to go to day camp and make crafts every day. Someone needs to do that for big girls.

I'm so glad you love sytycd! Isn't it the best?!? I also loved Gev and Chelsea last night. He is so cute I want to squish him!

Courtney and Joshua were my faves last night. I like that combo! I loved the bride of frankenstein dance! I loved the butt slapping! My least fave was Mark and Kherington's two step. Come on! Who booked those choreographers???? No offense to all those Texas two step fans out there.

It was such a treat last night to watch TWO hip-hoppers do hip-hop. Because usually I'm all tense and anxious during hip-hop routines, willing the non-hip-hopper not to look completely idiotic the whole time. So to see Comfort and Twitch do their thing was awesome!

But my favorite was Gev and Courtney H. and their "These Arms Are Mine". Maybe just cause I love that song, though.

I haven't seen SYTYCD yet... I am exercising more restraint that I think possible to not sneak in there and fire up the DVR right NOW!!!!!

MiaKatia said...

Ps I don't like Comfort either...

Amy said...

I told you the summer camp thing would be a score! I am glad they decided to do it!

SYTYCD is the bomb! Hooray for puzzles too - I am so doing some with the kids in the morning :)

Kankles NEVER! SOrry I haven't watched SYTYCD. I am a loser and don't have that station.

Shanz said...

Comfort and Twitch. Totally LOVED that dance!
Made me HAPPY!

I don't know why I have never watched SYTYCD. Keep posting snippits on your blog because I do like watching those.
