Day 4

Giving thanks for...

The school day. I love how it makes me rise and shine bright and early to jump start my day into an actual routine. Otherwise, I would definitely stay in bed longer.

Exercise equipment I have at home so I don't have to leave to go to the gym.

Helpful children.

Wonderful women that are in my neighborhood. I admire them and value their friendship and have so much gratitude for all of the help they give me so often.

My washing machine and dryer. Washing clothing by hand or having to go to the laundromat would really suck.

This is such a great idea. I should start but I don't want to be too big of a copy cat. Maybe I will do it for the 12 days of Christmas since Thanksgiving is so close. It is such a good routine. Sometimes I forget how lucky I really am and this exercise would help me remember how lucky I have it!

What your exercise equipment isn't doubling as an expensive coat rack covered in dust?

I love that you've done this. I was going to do something like this for the month but apparently I'm not very grateful...
Laundry! I do my laundry in a shared room in my building. But: two washers and two dryers. Someday that is what I want. Wouldn't that be dreamy? And even if I had two washers and two dryers, I'm pretty sure I'd be doing laundry all the time anyway!
Love you girl.

april, amazingly I actually use it. The oversized belly is a constant reminder, even though it is growing a life, but the clincher is thighs that cause friction and my ever widening butt. I feel a little better for making some 'effort' to better the cause. By the way, Evie's pic is so cute - I hope you guys win.

Kim - I have a feeling we will be back to the days of using the building laundry soon, especially if we become students again - I am trying to relish in the fact that they are so close and available - and yes, two of each would be absolutely dreamy. That is definitely not too strong a word.
