still here... still thankful

Yes, I am still here. I have not had a baby yet. I have, however, continued to list the things I am thankful for but the list has been building over on my phone. Here's a quick review for my blog reading friends (all pics taken w/ my phone): 11/3/2011

I am so thankful for the chiropractor. I had never been to a chiro before this pregnancy but I have seen great improvement in my aches and pains since I started going. If you are a local, check out my chiro, Dr. Likins. He will take great care of you!


Today I am grateful for a flexible schedule. I've said this before... but I continue to be so very thankful for the opportunity I have to work for myself. It is not a typical lifestyle in our country... at least not with such flexibility. But I am passionate about encouraging others to do what they can to add quality to their lives. If that means living debt free so that you are free to follow your dreams or travel the world, or if it simply means to work for yourself so you have the flexibility to lead the life you want.


Grateful today for a healthy body.... with all four limbs and the ability to run if I need to. Today Tommy completed the MMTR 50+ Miler and I couldn't be more proud or inspired by his accomplishment. All I can think of is how grateful I am for the ability to do whatever we put our minds to.


So very thankful today for time to rest. I am also very glad Tommy is feeling good (albeit sore) and has energy after his big race.


I am so glad Tommy has Mondays off. They are our personal Saturday together (since I often work Saturdays or we have events to attend)... Monday is the day we run errands and eat lunch and generally participate in productive activity together, uninterrupted. I love it.


So glad that our little pups are beginning to finally come back around after Red moved back home. It has actually been a whole week since we received a little present on the bathroom floor... something that had been happening almost daily for a while there. (I know, that's a little TMI, but I am REALLY grateful it's not happening anymore.) We love these little ups and can only hope they will adjust to a new baby a lot better than they (never really) adjusted to Red.


Today I am grateful for having inspiration right outside of my window. I find I am so inspired by the weather and the changing seasons. The change, the freshness of something new... I never desire to get out and photograph more than I do during the changing of seasons. I am grateful for four seasons and how much they inspire me.

More to come, I'm sure. I've plenty of time while I sit and wait for baby. <3
