 30 Days of Thankfulness; Day 21 {Thankful for mental notes sticking and for humor}

Today: I am very grateful for my dad. For the day of his birth and all of the wonderful things that his life means to all of us.

I am thankful that I remembered every thing I needed to remember in this super packed day. Seriously, there were so many mental post-it-notes covering my brain... and I don't have the greatest track record when it comes to mental notes.

I remembered Noe's muffin mix he needed to take to preschool

I remembered K's plastic cups he had to take to 2nd grade.

I remembered that Jay's reading log was due today.

I remembered to call in K's prescription today and pick it up (double score!!).

I remembered to drop 2 photo CD's in the mail and two bills that needed to be paid.

I knew where my keys were at all times today (sadly, this is noteworthy...).

I remembered that Dave had signed up to bring supper to his class tonight, and made stuffed shells, plus potato soup for the boys and grandma.

Sent emails that needed attention, looked over homework that needed to be done, and crossed several things off my to-do list.

I went to the Center for Women, but remembered that I had to leave an hour and a half early to pick Jay up and take him to his Thanksgiving play. I remembered my camera to take pictures of him in said play (not so noteworthy whatsoever. It hardly leaves my side. Apparently camera >keys). 

Whew. Thankful for all of that!!

I am laughingly grateful for the sense of humor that this family has. So very entertaining every single day! I'm still laughing over Jay's words about my hair. "Mom, it's probably good that you had to stay home from church yesterday with K and Kai. You probly would have been embarrassed to go. You know...

(*whispers loudly behind his hand*)

"about your hair!"

I couldn't stop laughing. I said, "Jay, it really isn't so bad!" And his lovely reply, "Mom, it's pretty weird...".

Love that kid.

So... here it is. And I have to be honest. It's even brighter/more unnatural looking in person...

It's kinda growing on me though. Don't tell anyone...

You are beautiful regardless of hair color! And it actually looks really pretty in the photo! Glad you got through your crazy day remembering everything... that is pretty impressive!

lol about the keys - totally relating! Kids reactions are so funny when appearances are changed (I remember I totally freaked out at 6 yrs old when my dad shaved his beard and didn't tell us he was going to...)I think your new colour really makes your eyes pop - it's pretty! :)

Wendi, it's lovely! When you posted on FB, I pictured something fluorescent, I guess. :) But this...well, I wish I could pull this color off like you can!

And you are just flat-out gorgeous.
