I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday Y’all!

Normally I would apologize for taking a hiatus from blogging for almost a week, but I have made a decision to stop apologizing. No reason in feeling bad for living my life and stepping away from my blog for a bit. Good idea, Yes?!? Can I get a Yee-Haw?!? If you are completely confused as to why I am mentioning this, you will just have to go and visit my BlogFrog community and check out This Discussion about blogging and all the silly things I do.

I am sad that some of my children are going away for the weekend.

We have finally finished the stair railing system that goes up to the second floor in our addition! It is so nice to be able to walk upstairs without an overly irrational fear of falling over the edge. I am so Thankful that is done!

We have also finished painting the walls in the downstairs of the addition. Just a few doors to finish painting…along with some touch up on the ceiling and we are done painting the addition (and I have no earthly idea how wall paint got on the ceiling, seriously, none) I am so Thankful that we are one step closer to taking a good looooong break from working on the addition!

I am so very Thankful that I was able to find an open window in the house the other day after E Nut locked myself and Wing Nut and Little Nut Nut out of the house. Yes, Wee Nut and Honey Nut were locked in the house while we were locked out, but Thankfully they were in their highchairs having a snack in front of Blues Clues and had no idea that there was the very real possibility that they were going to be sitting there for over an hour until their father got home. Thankfully, Little Nut Nut was easily tossed into a small window and after getting distracted by a few things on the way to the door, he eventually let us in.

As always, I am Thankful for my happy, healthy, wild little beasties that run around my house all day long driving me crazy, I am Thankful that we have a roof over our heads and for our wonderfully supportive group of friends and family and all the ways they help us.

So what are you Thankful for today? It is so easy to join in and tell everyone.

Here is how Thankful Thursdays works:

1. Post your Thankful Thoughts on your blog. Somewhere in your post please mention The Nut House and/or ourhappynuthouse.com so that your friends, family and visitors know where to find other Thankful Thoughts. You can also grab my Thankful Thursdays banner and link to that. Once you have done that you can come back here and add your post to MckLinky.

Not every one has a blog, so:

2. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave a Thankful Thoughts comment in the comment section.

3. You can show your Thankful Thoughts any way you like, as a list, a story, a vlog, as one word, one sentence or just a picture.

    Hi I’m Faith. This is my first time visiting your blog. Love the Thankful Thursday idea. Sometimes we need to just stop and reflect on all that we do have to be thankful for. Too often we forget.

    • Hazel Nut on August 30, 2010 at 3:01 pm

      Exactly Faith! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      Thanks Gayle, I am Thankful for them every day 🙂 And thanks for stopping by!

    You have been so busy. Glad you were able to get in and that Little Nut Nut didn’t decide to stop for a snack and a movie.

    Stopping from Mom Loop!

  6. RebeccaC on August 27, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    I will gladly and whole-heartedly contribute a “Yee-HAW!” No apologies and no regrets: Mom was not made for the blog, but the blog for Mom! 🙂

    Congrats on finishing the staircase. I’m also very thankful for our stair-railing. We used a very jerry-rigged, glorified ladder as a staircase for WAY too long and I tell my honey “THANK YOU” and “I love my staircase!” just about every time I go up or down it. It’s the simple things in life, don’t you agree?

    Enjoy your little critters! You’ve got a pretty wonderful-looking crew!

    Everyone needs a break from blogging sometimes. Life can get hectic. Thankful Thursdays is a really good idea.

    I’m a little late, but I am thankful for the trust that is shared between my husband and I. You never realize just how precious trust is until you have it in full measure. When you know no matter what happens, that person will never betray you or do anything dishonest to the relationship you share. It’s a very cherished thing and sadly many do not have this trust with their spouse. I’m just so thankful that I do 🙂

    • Hazel Nut on August 24, 2010 at 10:05 am

      Shared trust is a beautiful thing and a wonderful thing to be Thankful for. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m thankful that my basement is finally finished! (Now I should have more time for blogging, right?…hehe)

    • Hazel Nut on August 24, 2010 at 10:06 am

      Hahaha! Yeah, when our addition and home remodel is finally over I will have tons of time for blogging too 😉

    I am thankful for a day that my children and I shared without yelling. I am thankful for the lesson on gentleness that has penetrated our home. I am thankful for Impress Your Kid because it helped me bring my faith home. I am thankful for friends and family who show their love in so many ways. I am thankful for the opportunity to stay home with my children. I am thankful for options. Finally I am blessed!

    • Hazel Nut on August 20, 2010 at 9:22 am

      Those are all wonderfully beautiful things to be Thankful for, thank you so much for sharing! It is always a great day when we can go a whole day without fighting with the kids 🙂
