Day 3 of Captivity.....

I'm still here. And I think I might be getting a fumes headache!
I'm no longer the only thing being held kitchen is being held captive too! My fridge is not accessible today. All that I have available is my pantry...which only seems to contain things like vanilla wafers and fruit snacks. Obviously it has other things like rice, pasta, etc...but I can't get to my stove either.
So, I'm here...still...and I'm HUNGRY!

You would think I could be getting a lot of stuff done, but not really. The fumes are way too bad out in the main part of the house. So, again, I'm trapped in my office. Which means I can get work done, but the headache and the computer screen aren't mixing well for me!

So, let's take a look to the brighter side of life shall we! I need to stop complaining! So...How about 8 great things about my life!

1. I have a hubby who truly does love me and cherishes me!

2. I have two children who by nature are good, sweet, and loving!

3. I am blessed to have two parents who are still married and have modeled what it means to stick it out through the tough times.

4. I am blessed to have an amazing church family and community of believers in my life.

5. I am blessed by all that God has provided for our family.

6. I'm thankful for my extended family and looking forward to my "Nannual Girls Getaway Weekend" next week (Nantucket Here I come!!)

7. My kids are both in classes with teachers who they really like and seem to be a great fit!

8. I am loved by God and Saved by the death of His Son on the Cross...what can be better than that!!!!


  1. Amen to that!!

    So much to be thankful for :)
    Enjoy your girls weekend away!!

  2. good reminder to be thankful shannon... i think i need to practice that too!

  3. I needed to hear that tonight, thanks!

  4. Oh I hate that, when you're hungry and there is nothing in the house to eat! I go from cupboard to cupboard hoping something will appear that will taste good. Ok, maybe that's more of my cravings coming out. But I still hate it!

  7. yes, that is true....I do have the bestest sister in the whole wide world!!!

  9. Good for you to look toward the brighter side. And your #8 is the greatest thing ever to be thankful for - that's what makes being held captive in your own home by people who are making it stink and starving you to death more bearable.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a note!
