Kelly’s Random Thankful 30

It’s November. Already. My inner old lady is poking out, because I’m about to comment on how fast this year has gone by… Wow.

And on Facebook, it’s that time of year again, when everyone lists one thing a day they are thankful for; does it just annoy me? Facebook’s November Thankful Thirty. Ugh. I mean, really. Who can’t find ONE thing to be thankful for each a day?

Today…? Hmmm. I’m thankful it’s Friday. TGIF, Yo!

Of course I’m thankful for all the normal, routine sincere stuff; blah, blah, boring. So let’s make it fun. And get it over with. Here is my version:

The Random Thankful Thirty

I’m thankful because…

1. it’s Friday. The last workday for me before vacation.
2. it’s raining, so I’m not stuck in my office on a pretty day.
3. my iPad keyboard is working again. You have to to turn on the Bluetooth thingy.
4. I don’t have malaria (although I think I’m getting a cold or typhoid).
5. everybody else in my family is healthy. For now. Until I give them a cold, or typhoid.
6. I have a job (at least until my boss finds this blog).
7. my shorts still fit me after I ate four hundred Jelly Belly jellybeans on Tuesday.
8. Edward Snowdon doesn’t live next door (because I just learned my home network is unsecured). Gasp.
9. we had a quiet evening at home last night (since we forgot about Halloween).
10. my dogs didn’t drag any bloody-half-dead-rodents into the house last night.
11. cruise ships don’t weigh your luggage (so I can pack the kitchen sink, or typhoid medicine).
12. I didn’t get blessed with a kick-a$$ body, therefore I didn’t become a stripper, and I got to meet Hubs.
13. I’m not bald. My hair is just thinning. But there is shampoo for that.
14. my car works again. In my defense, the low-gas light is small and comes on wayyy too late.
15. my iPhone only crashes once a day since the latest iOS 7 update.
16. I have wonderful friends who listen to me ramble, and then don’t Baker Act me.
17. I have sons. ALL BOYS. Yes. Thankful. Totally.
18. I am a Florida girl. I couldn’t handle a middle state. I need to be on the edges. I’m claustrophobic.
19. my St. Jude’s Brazilian is growing back. And probably won’t poke out of my swimsuit bottoms.
20. I have a bigger than average head. (because when my hips get big, they don’t actually look big; my head offsets them).
21. I have wide square footage on my big toe, so my pedicures look nice.
22. our kids don’t want to go to Disney anymore. So we can go alone! Super cool.
23. my friend Tanya and I were able to get drunk on my thirty-dollar Pepitos gift card, AND eat dinner. #lovefreestuff
24. Hubs took the day off to run last minute errands (so I can relax, aka go to work).
25. my kids are potty trained. Although, if you saw my teenager’s bathroom…
26. we didn’t have to buy a new TV last week.
27. my dogs are alive because they didn’t eat any of the tainted dog treats.
28. one of my FB friends FINALLY stopped posting pictures of her Amish-looking baby. Like she was the ONLY person on the planet to ever have a kid. Amish Baby eats, Amish Baby poops, Amish Baby sleeps… Oh My Gawd. Waitaminute..Did I unfriend her?
29. I am done. I did my Facebook Thankful Thirty in one day. Random-style.
30. you read my blog today.

Happy November. Already. Geez.

    How could you have forgotten Holloween? Did someone not ring your doorbell last night?

      Nope. We completely forgot to turn on the outside lights, and we have a sideways garage, so we had cars scattered in the driveway (usually we move them to one side)… and nobody came to the door.

      At one point I heard kids yelling and laughing outside, and I thought it was odd.. but then I didn’t think about it again. And Hubs was glued to the Miami game.

      And we were loaded up with goodies too; all ready for the 70ish Trick-or-Treaters we usually get. Needless to say my teenager (aka the human goat) is completely thrilled!

        I would like you to send me candy, because our metric ton of candy is almost out.

        I have a human goat, in the shape of a 17yr old boy, with human goat, boy-shaped friends. And I’ve been at work all day… And unable to police the goats. So you must mean that metric ton of candy I HAD… Nine hours ago. Pre-goat-fest.

        Never mind. There is no way you have any candy.
