Thankful Monday

This morning was rough, in fact the whole day was rough! I always have a hard time going back to work after a holiday! Then to have to come back to month end, on a Monday, after a holiday is a bummer! I really did try to make the most of it!

I am so thankful today:

*for making it to and from work without one ounce of road rage:)

*for Skype so that I could talk to my brother!

It was really hard not having him at the dinner table this Thanksgiving, but it was so nice to see his face even if it was on a computer screen. While living in Spain, Eric has started a blog! It is great to see the beautiful towns he visits and his day to day life. Stop by and tell him hello!

*for my visit with my 98 year old great grandma on Thanksgiving! She is such a strong woman! She still lives by herself in the house she has lived in since 17! Visitig her brings back so many amazing childhood memories. Oh...and she has so many things from her childhood there. I love listening to her stories.

*My cute poot for posting his Pumpkin Roll recipe on my blog. You can find it in the comment section of my Thanksgiving post. You will be missing out if you don't try it!! He even made it gluten free for me! We just substituted Pamelas Pancake/Baking Mix for the flour.

*being able to eat BBQ in KC that is gluten free. Thank you Jack Stacks!
