NoThanks – Day Twenty-Seven

Tonight I am thankful for flannel jammies. Flannel jammies are much too hot to sleep in, but they’re perfect for wearing when it’s cold outside and you know you’re not going anywhere and don’t plan on doing anything more strenuous than a load of laundry. Possibly nothing more draining than playing on Facebook. Maybe even nothing more…

NoThanks – Day Twenty-Five

Today I’m thankful for my parents and everything they taught me. I had a really great childhood. It was happy and secure and I never questioned whether or not my folks loved me and my sisters. I was never worried they would divorce and always knew there was nothing I could do to make them…

NoThanks – Day Twenty-Four

Today I’m thankful that there are only six more days of NoThanks left. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I’m running out of things to be thankful for. Quite the contrary. I keep thinking of more and more. It’s the blogging every day that’s about to kill me, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to…

NoThanks – Day Twenty

Today I’m thankful for… I’m not exactly sure. Oh, there’s plenty I’m extremely grateful for. It’s not like I can’t think of anything. It’s just that I’m so hopping furious right now it’s hard to land on something good. You see, I have this friend. In fact, I have these two friends. They’re a mother…

NoThanks – Day Nineteen

Tonight I’m thankful for a great celebration of the anniversary of my 39th birthday! The morning didn’t start out so well. I had planned to leave early so I could stop by Starbuck’s and get my complimentary birthday beverage. Everything was running on schedule, but I didn’t account for my chatty family. Or the loose…
