Totally Thankful Thursday...and Mom of the Year?!

Well here I am wide awake at 12:39 A.M. I decided it was a great time to do my TTT. So here goes:
1. I know I've been complaining about the snow a lot, but this afternoon when I went out to get my mail...the snow had melted quite a bit, and the grass, the tulips, and the perrenials...are so gorgeous and green. It made me smile. That crazy snow is making my yard and flowers so pretty, and giving them the moisture they need! THANKS snow...sorry I cussed you on Monday!
2. Amy my adorable, crazy niece who is in her first year of college, and experiencing some awesome roomy issues! She is waiting for me to add her to my TTT list, so this is for you!! Thanks for helping me like you do "Grandma" on the computer! Love YA!
3.'s a herpes medicine that has thankfully slowed the beast of a coldsore that I have on my face from getting any worse. I'd post a picture of that, but you'd throw-up!!! I get them when I am extremely stressed, the first one when I was 16. This time it decided to go ahead and grab a staph infection too. It's the size of a quarter right on my cheek. Gross!!!
4. NKOTB...(New Kids On the Block) your new album's songs are stuck in my head. And Jibbity sings them all the time too! Do you think I listen a little too much?
5. Middle of the night blogging...I love this peaceful time to enjoy everyones posts. I love all you new friends I have made! Thanks for your comments!

I received this wonderful award from Swoozie over at Mommy Kingdom. She is awesome and sooo cute! Thanks so much! I don't think my kids would agree on this one though!:-)
Here is who I am passing this to:
Juls at Everyday is a Crazee Day
Connie at The Young and the Relentless
Sarah at Ten Years*One Girl*Two boys
April at Straight from the Heart

You Moms are awesome!!! Talented, amazing, and wonderful ladies! I love reading your blogs, they make me smile, or want to bake cookies(KiraAJ)!:-)
***Mom of the Year Award Rules!!***
~~Rule One~~Admit one thing you feel awful about involving being a mom!***

At the end of the day when I feel like I didn't spend enough time with my kiddos, and realize how fast they are growing up! I seem to never have enough patience, and always have grand plans of doing a million more things with them...that don't get done! I guess that's why I always think at night..."I will do better tomorrow!"
~~Rule Two~~Remind yourself you are a good mom!
Sometimes I feel like a great Mom, then there are the other times! I love my kids so much, and hope I am doing the best I can at raising them!
I am a good Mom, I am a good Mom, I am a good Mom!!!!
~~Rule Three~~Send the award to 5 other Mom's of The Year that deserve credit for being great moms and remind them they are the Best Mom they can be!Remember to send them a note to let each one know you've selected them and add a link to the person who nominated you!
Thanks again Swoozie!!! Have a great ThUrSdAy everyone!

Congrats on the award and thanks for sharing what you are thankful for. I need to do that more often.

Kris said...

Oh Taneill- ouch! Sorry to hear about the coldsore....ugg...I feel your pain. But you're right, Valtrex is the best. Loved what you wrote about the snow. I'm right there with ya as well. :)

April said...

Thank you so much for thinking of me and for passing this award on to have made my day! Big congrats to you, too!

Sure hope your cold sore gets better real soon...those can be so painful! As for the snow, we had about 20 flakes fall this winter and that was it! Of course, we're heading to Colorado in a week and a half, so I'm sure we'll see some then! Have a super day!

The peacefulness after the kids are in bed for the day is my favorite time of the day to blog. I can actually get a complete thought together with no interuptions!

Congratulations on your award!

Amy said...

Hope you got some sleep. Congrats to you on your wonderful award. Have a great Thursday.

FaithChick said...

Oh yeah I feel your pain on the cold sore. I get them in the corner of my mouth and my lip swells up so big. I am sure people think that I have been in a fight or something. Get better soon. Love the list

jenjen said...

Oh, I'm so sorry about your cold sore and infection. That's no fun! Great TTT list though. And congrats on the award. I can tell from reading your posts that you are an awesome mom!

Thanks for stopping by! Sorry about the coldsore! I tend to get them a lot (I'm a stressor) But when I'm pregnant I get them ALL THE FREAKING TIME during the 1st trimester. Multiple ones, three usually at a time. Weird huh.

shortmama said...

Ok I have to tell you that the Valtrax thing cracked me up! I needed that laugh today. Also I got my winnings in the mail! I love them so much, they are beautiful! The frame on the giggle thing had broken in the mail, the frame snapped and the glass was broken. Dang mail people! No worries though I saved the fabric and am going to get it another frame. Thanks so much! The pillows are adorable

Xazmin said...

Are you still thankful for the snow now that we had another blizzard all freaking night? Ha!

You are one of the best moms I inspire me to try and be a better one.

Love ya!

Cold and canker sores go away overnight with a little miracle in a bottle called L-lysine. You can buy it at the grocery store in the vitamin section. One pill morning and night until symptoms disappear.

Great blog, darling kiddos!

Connie Weiss said...

You are an awesome Mom!

Thanks for the award!

The Rambler said...

congrats on the award.

I'm confused because I know I've been here before but wasn't sure if I told you thanks. So I'm doing this again.

Thanks so much for visiting me on my SITS day!
