Thankful Thursday - with a snarky twist today



Feeling a little snarky today, so while I am thankful for many things, there are several that are just "buggin" today....

1. I am NOT technically inclined in the least. I HATE the fact that I need help with anything remotely technical, computerized, automated....you get the idea. However, I AM THANKFUL that Tiburon has my back and not only lets me lift her Thankful logo, but helps me with my heart rate monitor. Both in the set up and reading the da** thing in the morning.

2. I HATE winter. I hate the wet, the cold, the snow, the deadness all around me. However, I AM THANKFUL that I have a nice warm house, with a furnace and a hot cornbag to warm me up and keep me warm.

3. I HATE the new president's "economic stimulus package". I'm not exactly sure how it's going to simulate the economy in any time soon and think it's a bunch of agenda stuff that his particular party has wanted for years and now have the ability to giftwrap it in the form of a "stimulus" package. However, I AM THANKFUL that I live in the United States and while our economy is suffering, I am not watching my babies die from cholera, lack of nutrition, aids or other diseases. That we have the freedoms we do and the ability to voice our own opinions.

4. I HATE the fact that Splenda Daddy's company is loading the lay-off gun. Don't know how many rounds or where the barrel will be pointed yet. But, I AM THANKFUL that I have a job that is recession/depression safe.

5. I HATE driving 32 miles round trip to my office. Waste of time, gas and frustration with other koo-koo drivers. I AM THANKFUL though, that I can WFH once a week. Seriously, best blessing ever, and I really get more work done. No lie.

6. I HATE the fact that Splenda Daddy is sick. We all know what that means. You know, when your DH is sick...... However, I AM THANKFUL for Splenda Daddy in my life. Cold and all. In fact, his voice is so low, it's sexy.

What are you thankful for today? Or what's buggin? I am interested in either.....

Love the layoff gun. It's pointed at us too, although, I'm pretty sure I'm safe since I have seniority over other people.

Hope it all works out!

I hate the nasty smell of the overly buttered popcorn someone just popped in the microwave. Yuck! So glad I don't have to eat it.

Sorry to hear about the lay-off gun. Me no likey!

enjoy that freedom to speak up, when and where you can, while it lasts.
when obama shuts down the conservative airwaves, we are going to need more people like yourself to speak up.

When we are sick, we still have to run the household. When they are sick, the world must stop.

I hate LOST. But I am thankful we are watching it from the beginning (hours and hours every night) because it gives me and my husband interesting conversations!

I was feeling snarky on my blog today too. And I also may or may not have talked about your hooker heels on my blog post.

I am hating ex-wives today, but am thankful for FUNNY blogs like yours to take my mind off of the exes!

I love your spin on this. I'm having a love/hate relationship with cookie dough right now.
