I'm so very, very thankful!!!!

I Got You Babe...{Think: Billy Murray, Groundhog Day} that's sort of where I was at before reading everything you all are so very, very thankful for.  Life has its way of putting you in a rut...especially if you let it.  I definitely let it.  I've been a complaining fool...anybody who will listen and commiserate...I've been blathering to. 

Stop the madness.

I needed a serious attitude adjustment.  Yes, things are a little crazy around here with hubby's herniated disc.  Yes, Michigan is tossing one curve ball after another at us teachers....BUT, there is still so much to be thankful for!  That's why I'm linking up with Rachelle and Natalie over at What the Teacher Wants who are having a little "I"m Thankful For..." linky party!

1. What are you thankful for in your classroom? 

 I'm thankful that I have a crew that makes me smile daily.  Seriously, I have the best group of kiddos ever.  Sure, I have a couple that give me a run for my money, but even they make me smile because they have such a soft side too.  I'm thankful for my new netbooks that I use during listen to reading and I'm really happy with all the changes that have emerged since joining the blogging community.  I'm also thankful for my high school helper.  Rachel was a first grade student of mine and is now a senior in high school.  Way back in first grade she told me she was going to be a first grade teacher and here she is - her senior year before heading off to Michigan State...GO SPARTANS....and she's helping out in my classroom...and what a help she is!!!

2. What person are you most thankful for?

Wow, that's really hard to pinpoint one.  I'm thankful for my hubby who is the first person I call on my way home from school. I can't wait to hear about his day {he's a teacher too} and tell him all about mine.  I'm thankful for my fantastic-ly caring big sister and my sweet, kind, empathetic, strong, silly, AWESOME friends! {I was supposed to pick one, eh?}

3. What 3 blogs are you most thankful for?

Three, huh?  Well I didn't follow the "rules" for number why start now?
I'm thankful for Kristin over at A Teeny Tiny Teacher - just because.  I think she and I would be fast friends in real life.  Of course she makes me smile and she keeps it real.
I'm also thankful for Cheryl over at Crayons & Curls.  She's been so helpful to me as I figure out the whole blog scene and she leaves me sweet comments {Cuz, Lord knows comments make my day!}
Who else am I thankful for? Jennifer at Herding Kats in Kindergarten is so thoughtful...she has also helped me out a ton, given me two blog awards {Which made me one happy girl!} and her blog is full of ideas that I use with my kiddos.
Okay - just one more - Jennifer at Rowdy in First Grade has the cutest stuff, leaves the sweetest comments and just makes me smile! 
And Hadar, and Rebecca, and...and...{Am I  a major cheater, or what?}

4. What guilty pleasure are you most thankful for?

Edward and Chai Tea
{I have a date with Edward and three of my best girl friends in t-minus 10 minutes...I'm giddy!}

5. What are you most thankful for?

My health and my happiness!!!!

    I am sneaking out to see Edward this weekend - unfortunately my household is anti-Twilight if you can believe that! I try not to hold it against my husband since he's so good about everything else :)
