thankful thursday

It didn’t seem appropriate to bring up, what with the explosions and carnage and all, but on Monday we noted Whee Kelly Doll’s birthday.  We don’t know what day is her for-real birthday, only that it’s in the middle of April some time.  Since Tax Day is the only day in this week when no member of T-Moth’s family has a birthday, I assignedit to her.  It seemed appropriate, since Ms Terrierist can be taxing!

We didn’t really do anything particular for her birthday except say Happy Birthday a lot and give her lots of cuddles.  I’m hoping to buy her a new brush this weekend and go to work on her ear mats.  Her feathers are the worst, and with school so crazy I have been lax in her grooming.  We are going to spend some serious brush-time very soon…and maybe some scissors time.  Let her start fresh at both ends, although her buttfeathers are growing back (post-surgery) nicely already.

Anyway, I am thankful that, no matter how insane the world is, dogs are still dogs, and a good dog is good medicine for when the world is too much with us.

I am thankful that stores have changed and are changing their coupon policies, because nothing in life is free, and I use a reasonable amount of coupons, but I resent getting stuck helping to pay for extreme couponers’ hoards because you know the company isn’t eating the cost of all that; they’re passing it on.

I am thankful for a sense of humor.

I am thankful for warm weather and cool weather and sunshine and rain.

I am thankful for family and friends and other critters.

I am thankful for storytellers.

I am thankful the end of this degree program is in sight.

I am thankful for hope.
