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!

I know it is late in the day, and you probably thought I forgot about Thankful Thursday after posting my Thinks My Kids Destroy vlog this morning. Nope, I am actually aware that today is Thursday ;)

I am aware of this because tomorrow Mr Wall Nut is working his last evening over at Music Today. The job was great over the Holidays, to help earn money for Christmas when his full time employer couldn’t come up with the money to pay him then. But, it is really starting to take a toll on our family and the two of us have been extra cranky this week. Now that his boss has given him much deserved raise, he is able to quit his second job and be home with the family. We are so ready for this! Now we can only hope that the paychecks don’t start coming late again! Unfortunately that also means that his boss can send him out of town to work again, but it will hopefully only be a few weeks at a time, working close to home for a few weeks, then back out of town. Back and forth. But not all the time. Hopefully.

I am so Thankful that my loverly husband will be able to come home from work and hang out with his kids. And me. And that I will get a little help around here. For realz. So.Darn.Thankful.

I am Thankful that yesterday is over. I never thought it would end. Nuff said.

I am Thankful for odorless dry erase markers. Because the classroom is just too small for those stinky markers!

I am Thankful that is is raining and not snowing!

I am Thankful for drooling babies that sleep on me when I just want to go to bed. One day those days will be gone forever.

I am Thankful for hazelnut coffee. With hazelnut creamer.

I am Thankful for baby gates and bathroom doors that lock behind me.

I am Thankful for the crocus greens sprouting up along my walk.

I am Thankful for my children who make me laugh, even when I am mad at them, and they know it. Ima sucker for my kids.

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 my husband has a  job, we still 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 Inlinkz.

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.
