Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday

Hope everyone had a really great Memorial Day weekend.  We stayed inside because of course our weather still can't make up its mind and it rained.  Then Moo was sick.  Those two and a half weeks we spent at my mom's sent her allergies in to overload because my mom has a dog and she feeds Moo things she's not suppose to have.

However, I'm thankful that we're detoxing her body and getting her back on track.  We went for her check up Tuesday and the only serious thing was that she was a little dehydrated but not enough that they needed to admit her into the hospital.  So, we've been pumping her full of fluids.  Through it all she's been a trooper though.

And while we're on the subject of kids, I'm really thankful for this whole motherhood experience that I've been blessed to have.  These last few days I've really been thinking a lot about where my life would be without my children.  Being a mom just brings so much more joy and purpose to my life.

Also, I'm thankful that I've found a preschool that might be a great fit for Moo.  It's not an arm and a leg but I still have to talk with the Mr and see how we can squeeze it into our budget because moving day is coming up.  So, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I've started work on my third book and am thankful that my writer's block finally broke.  Over the next few weeks, I'll be working hard to get it finished, get a book cover designed, get it edited and then published.  It's really excited because I already have a nonfiction book, a children's book and now I'm working on an adult fiction piece.  Who knows, this could be my New York Times bestseller.

What are you thankful for this week?

P.S.- The Discovery Place is in need of all sized soda bottles, toilet paper & paper towel tubes, milk jugs and cartons, egg cartons, cereal and cardboard boxes and Altoid tins.  So, if you're in the Queen City area or don't mind picking up a flat rate box and mailing your donation, they would greatly appreciate it!
