Seven is My Lucky Number

Thanks KimmyK - you know I need the blog fodder for NaBloPoMo!

So for my seven things I'm grateful for, I'm gonna take another page out of her book and say that there are some obvious things that I am grateful for (friends, family, health, work, etc.) and give you the list of things that I really am truly grateful for:

1. The Transplant Team at Kaiser and Stanford. They have my dad on the road to recovery and in reality there is nothing that I am more grateful for.

2. My Tivo. Seriously, without it I would be forced to choose which shows I watched, I wouldn't be able to sit on my butt all weekend and watch an entire week of shows, and I wouldn't be able to burn out my brain cells one sitcom at a time.

3. This Blog. I say things on here that I don't say to anyone else - and I think that being able to get it out of my system helps. Although I suppose some of it really does need to be said out loud to the appropriate people.

4. The Beauty Industry - giver of nail polish, hair color and my spiffy new mascara (with cool packaging too!). I admit it, I'm a girly-girl! And as I've said before, nail polish is "calorie-free happiness in a jar".

5. The end of Daylight-Savings Time. I do love the long evenings of summer, but I really hate getting up in the dark. So now that the clocks are back an hour I'm not so late to work everyday.

6. My Job. I know I said that this was one of the obvious ones, but I'm grateful for a different reason. As much as I'd like to stay home everyday, with Scott sick and not working very much, I'd have to kill him if I didn't go to work. Really, it was a long weekend that he almost didn't survive (he does seem to be on the mend though).

7. Diet Coke. I love it, I need it - many years from now they will pry it from my cold dead hands.

Ok - this is the point when I am hugely embarrassed by my lack of readers - I may actually have seven readers to tag, but since one of you tagged me, well - just work it out amongst your selves! (Just Laura, this means you ;-)

I have to agree with your #2, I love my DVR, I am so used to it, that it is almost painful to watch live TV, I hate commercials now. And reality TV shows waste a lot of time with recaps I can now speed through. #4, I love my blog too, but I can't always say exactly what I want because people I know read it. I guess that is the point though. and #7 Diet Coke is my favorite, that was the hardest thing to give up when I got pregnant, and I only gave it up for the first 3 months, now I just consume it with moderation.

Having a DVR is like what I imagine heaven to be like.

And have you shared what brand of mascara this is? I have a stash and yet I'm still looking for the best kind! Spill woman!
