Thankful Thursday

with Rebecca at Southern Charm

I'm thankful for Fall and all the fun Fall things like Pumpkin Spice Lattes (and pumpkin spice k-cups!), football games, and fall dresses and boots. 

I'm thankful for my job and that I'm able to teach. Relocating in August is tricky for a teacher and I really didn't think I would be teaching this year. I have to remind myself how lucky I am to have gotten my job - especially on days like today when one of my kindergarteners whittled a shank from a plastic pencil sharpener. 

I'm thankful that I drive reverse commute to and from work. The traffic is still fairly heavy (even at 6:30 in the morning) but I'm so glad I'm not traveling the opposite direction towards the city. I make it to work in about twenty-five minutes and I watch the people in the other lane honk and curse at each other and give other drivers the finger through their sunroof.

I'm thankful that its almost the weekend. Friday cannot come soon enough this week. I'm ready for some delicious dinners out and relaxation. Corey gave me a gift certificate for a mani pedi that I might cash in this weekend - I'm in desperate need. There are also several fun fall festivals going on in NYC this weekend that I'd like to check out. Does anyone have any fun weekend plans?

  6. I didn't know you were teaching kindergarten. That's Mr. Cool's grade. Love today's post. I"m on a reverse school commute, too. Love it. Everyone is going into the Research Triangle Park, and I'm heading to downtown Raleigh. Thanks goodness.
