Day 3 {and 4}: Giving thanks....

So it's pretty safe to say I suck at forced blogging.
Even when I make up the topic I can't keep on track!
Regardless, I've still been mentally bookmarking my daily thanks.
It's amazing when you're more aware of it, how much good there really is in your world.
So even if I'm not so stellar at putting the words on paper, I'm loving this challenge nonetheless!

For day 3 I'm giving thanks to single moms.  And military moms.  Or any parent out there doing this on their own.
I don't know how you do it day in and day out.
I've been "single" momming it most of this week due to the hubs crazy work schedule and it's hard.
Like real hard.
To be the only person in charge knowing you don't have any back up reinforcement coming?
You ladies rock my socks.
Cause 3 days into this and I miss my parenting partner in crime like woah.

Today I want to give thanks to fall.  More specifically, fall in the Midwest!
I know I've said it a million times, but I could NEVER live somewhere that doesn't have true seasons.
I love fall WAY to much to give it up for the sun and sand.
Sure come January when all you warm weather dwellers are posting pictures in swimsuits on the beach while I'm digging myself out of a snowdrift I might be a teensy bit jealous.
But today when it was a crisp 60 degrees and all the leaves are just starting to turn making my drive along I-35 rather picturesque, I'm glad I'm not still sweating my tits off in triple digit temps.
There's nothing better than a cool fall night, sitting by a fire or snuggling up with a blanket.
I just love this time of year!

Happy Thursday Friends!
Come on back tomorrow to cleanse your souls with a little Friday Confessional!

To aren't kidding about single-momming it. I have mad respect for all those mommas out there.

Cheers to the single moms! I'd be in the crazy house if I had to do this on my own, day in and day out. Great post!

I don't know how single moms do it. Sometimes I think I will pull my hair out without Dave's help. Other times, I think he makes things more complicated. :) But, seriously, I couldn't do it without him.
