Lessons from the Lunchlady-What I'm thankful for

I am feeling quite thankful that I am officially on Thanksgiving break.  This includes Monday, which is the first day of antlered deer and when it comes to hunting around these parts we take shooting buck very seriously.

As long as I get the day off and don't have to shoot anything I'm okay with that.

Here's a short list of what I'm thankful for:

  • I am thankful for five days of unprocessed, non-government packaged food.
  • I am thankful that I don't have to fill the mop bucket.
  • I am thankful that I do not have to give anyone a cheese sandwich because their parents are incompetent and cannot remember to pay their lunch bill.
  • I am thankful that I do not have to wear a hairnet until Tuesday.
  • I am thankful that I am not "in charge" of anyone other than my children.
  • I am thankful that the only sarcasm I have to endure is that of my family.
  • I am thankful that for five blissful days I don't even have to consider what we are having for lunch tomorrow.
Of course, those are only the work related things.  I am also thankful for the health of my family, including my MIL who recently had surgery.  I am also thankful for extended family who will be joining us for turkey and for those who cannot.

And I am most thankful for my husband, who likes to cook!

Happy Thanksgiving!
