Thank Heavens

Today in church, Jeff leaned over to me and said, "Oh, by the way, at Thanksgiving dinner, my family goes around the table and everyone says something they're thankful for." Since we will be spending Thanksgiving with Jeff's family, I decided to start thinking about some of the things I am grateful for...

I could always play it save and go with the cliche answer of "My husband!" Jeff is way too good to me. He cooks me breakfast on Sunday mornings. He tucks me in at night. He brings treats in to me while I'm at work. He is even patient with my crazy birth-control caused mood swings. I truly am grateful for Jeff. He's the cheese of my macaroni, the Biden to my Obama, the sunshine to my rainy day. But of course this is what the family would expect me to say.
So I could say I'm grateful for the Civic. It was a free car. And I have been meaning to share my gratefulness for it with the world. If it wasn't for that car, I would be walking to work every day, or we would be in debt another $5,000. So it has been a major blessing to have the Civic. Thank you so much Abe and Klarissa! And thanks mom and dad for bringing it down to us.

Or I could say I'm grateful for my job. Even though I never get to see that cute little husband of mine, Jeff and I are very grateful to both have jobs right now.

I could always mention Runescape. Because I know Runescape is going to make Jeff and I some big money one day. I could talk about, Chuck Norris or Dwight Schrute because they all bring significant amounts of joy into my life. Ah. I can't wait to see what I come up with. And Happy Thanksgiving!

If You Had A Bad Day...

A few days ago, my Spanish teacher told the class that she keeps a picture of Fabio in her desk. He is there for her bad days, so she can pull him out and just have a good laugh.

She got me thinking about my remedies for a tough day, and this is what I decided helps the most.
I recently discovered this website called It's great! Free samples. Nothing brightens my day like free stuff! Even if I don't need it. It's free!

My second guilty pleasure is frozen yogurt. One of our friends told us Maverick has this really good frozen yogurt, and you can get as much as you can fit in the bowl. I think last month we went at least 10 times. This one is more for a really stressful day. There's nothing quite like fat-free, sugar-free frozen yogurt after 3 tests followed by an 8 hour shift of work.

And who better to put a smile on your face than good old Tyra Banks. After 3 classes, I have a break from 11:00-11:50. By the time I get my lunch fixed, there isn't enough time to do homework, so I usually take a little TV break. Especially now that I know Tyra is on every weekday at that exact time. Oh. The Tyra Banks Show is such a nice break from school because you need NO brain power to watch it. Tyra is the least intelligent talk show host I have ever watched, which is probably why I keep watching. Tyra can fix any bad, stressful, or exhausting day. Just watch the videos below. It's only a taste, but it's Tyra at her best.

And if NONE of those work. This does. Knowing I'm not the only one terrified of cotton balls.
