100th post!

Listening to the news is depressing. The Hubs just emailed me that CNN is reporting 81,312 housing foreclosures in September alone. I think I need to get out of my rut and count my blessings, because I know I have many.

- I have a nice house in the suburbs, and can pay for it.

- The Hubs and I have stable jobs (knock on wood)

- My marriage is happy and solid.

- I have a family who I am very close to. They are very supportive of me and my struggles with PCOS and IF.

- I have beautiful twin nieces who I love more than my own life. They give me hope for the future.

- I have friends who I love and who I know will always be there for me- even if I’ve been a flake and haven’t called them for weeks or, um, months.

- Even though money is tight, I don’t have to choose between paying a bill or eating every month.

- All 6 of my senses work. (Yes, 6. Didn’t you know that all women have a 6th sense called intuition?)

- My subconscious sends me some pretty crazy dreams at night to keep me entertained. (Is that weird? I LOVE to sleep because my dreams are always so neat…. Especially now that I’m drinking milk every night with my metformin)

- I’m spending my lunch break today with my long lost best friends from High school.

There’s so much more, but those are the ones I can think of off of the top of my head. I am blessed.

Also, this is my 100th post! YAY!

Congrats on the 100th post!

I really is good to stop and think about how blessed we are. It makes us stop and realize that what we are complaining about isn't necessarily the end of the world.

woah, that's a lot of foreclosed homes! i wrote a post about how it's effecting central cali, titled "Lisa Ling Reports" if you're interested. very sad and definitely made me appreciate the stability we're provided with the military.

my hubby and i try and make sure to sit down and say all the things we're thankful for at least once a week, usually during sunday dinner.

and congrats on your 100th post!
