Thanks All Around

It seems that lately I've had many many things to be grateful for, so I apologize for always posting about it, but I would feel very ungrateful if I didn't!

I must first thank my wonderful friends that are lending us their computer until we can get a new one. You have no idea how strong the "lone man on an island" feeling was around here for a week or so. I got all of the updates downloaded and installed, since it was a computer they didn't use very often, and it's running great! So thanks Frei Family!

I also must thank them for sharing their kids with us. I'm know on occasion to inform them that I'm stealing their kids for the afternoon. Since we moved here we've had cookie making parties, and various game playing fun. So a week or two ago we had our first (because I'm sure their will be more) movie night. Each of the girls picked out a movie, we popped popcorn, and sent John off to get pizza. We had a great time watching Kung Fu Panda and Shrek... we didn't have time to watch Mulan II which is one of the reasons why I'm sure they'll be more movie nights in the future. We got everything cleaned up and were ready to take the girls home when I was reminded we didn't play THE GAME. Disney Scene It 2nd Edition is our (their) game of choice. After one game, which John helped Laila win, we took the girls home. We had a great time!

I also have to thank my neighbor girls. They came over a couple of weeks ago and helped me close and put labels on all of my mom's wedding invitations. They were a huge help. We also watched movies, had popcorn, and even watched some American Idol.

I also must thank my co-workers (mostly for putting up with me and not trying to get me fired... although I'm sure there are some of them that would like that to happen some days!)... I have great co-workers. A handful of them are some of my favorite people in the world. I don't know where I'd be without them. They keep me going. And they put up with me... which if you know me, you know that's a feat in and of itself! I am very blessed to have such great people to work with that are wonderful friends too! Thanks guys!

And of course, I have to thank John for putting up with me and my various food cravings... I've always gone in sperts for craving various foods/snacks. So no just because pickles sound really tasty lately does not mean I'm pregnant, despite everyone's reactions to me saying that I would really like a pickle! I've been on a popcorn kick lately and so John has kindly made me homemade popcorn almost everynight. He's so great! (and for many more reasons than popcorn!)

So anyway, I'm back online and will get to post more often again. Thanks for sticking around!

I want to tell you how thankful I am for you. You are always there for me and help me work things out. I know I can be a bit much at times, but I am glad that I have you. I also know what you mean about weird cravings. I have those every once in awhile. They usually last for a month.
