Thankful Monday!

It seems that around 9pm every Sunday evening I start dreading that Monday is just around the corner. I decided last night that my negative attitude needed to stop right then. So I am going to do a "Thankful Monday" post every Monday. I will list things that I am thankful for that have happened or that I have encountered each Monday! Positive thinking = a happier life!

Today I am thankful for:

*our beautiful 70 degree weather!
*Fall Colors on my drive home
*having a Poot that knows how to get anywhere in this city. This especially comes in handy when you are stuck in heavy traffic and your car begins to overheat. Thanks Pootie!
*having a good laugh thanks to this guy:

Daniel Tosh

*Happy Mail from Jamie at www.inspiredmess.blogspot.com

I LOVE it! Thank you so much!

*A long evening walk with my hubby! I actually worked up a sweat, our neighborhood really can work the ol' glutes! Which is a good thing!

*Marking several things off my to-do list

*Journal Prompts from my Autumn is Love Class





*My poot doing laundry!
*Scheduling a pumpkin carving session for tomorrow
*Watching my poot sing and dance around our house! He makes me laugh so much!

What are you thankful for today??
XOXO

what a good idea! whether i'm dreading going to work or dreading going to school, i always try to think positive thoughts but sometimes it's so hard! i remember in fifth grade, my teacher shared her personal journals with us and at the end of every day she would write five things she was thankful for that day. i think that doing something like that (or this!) is a really good habit to get into.

today i am thankful for stupid pop punk music that keeps me peppy on the way to work. :)

Jamie,
I am going to wear my pin tomorrow! Oh and yes my husband and I call each other Poot. We are poot and poot. Or big poot and lil poot. Our friends now call us Poot. In fact I have found myself in the middle of Wal-Mart calling out "poot". People just stare! Oh well! Ha!
