The “fancy eatin’ table” post is just going to have to wait.
I find myself unable to continue without giving thanks. While I’m very thankful for MrWurdi and the children he brought into my life, my parents and other family, friends, employment, home, and so very much more, there is one thing – today – for which I am most thankful.
I don’t give a lot of details about my personal life on my blog. Sure, I tell true stories and I write about things that are real but I’m, purposefully, short on some of the specifics. In order for you to understand the depths of my thanks in this post, I must open up my life to you a little more.
Earlier this year, I came face-to-face with the big Four…uh. um… the big FOUR… (deep breath) okay, here goes…. The Big Four-OH-MY-GOD-I’M-FORTY!!!!!!
Yep. I turned forty. Really, it’s not that big a deal. I just like being a little bit dramatic. I’m completely fine with it.
More pertinent details:
I have two grown children who I adore. My son will be twenty-one in just a couple weeks and my daughter is twenty-three.
Do the math.
Okay. I started a little bit early. My daughter is married to a great guy and they live about an hour away from me. Together, they have provided me with The Grandgirls. These two Grandgirls make me glow with happiness when I see them. They are eleven months apart in age. The eldest was two in July; the youngest turned one in June.
My daughter and son-in-law have gone on a short vacation and MrWurdi and I are babysitting.
Did you know that there are women my age who are just starting to have their children? At my age?? On purpose!?!?!?!!!
Do you know what I’m truly thankful for today?
This guy (in yellow) with his friends:
I’ve taken a few liberties with the opening lyrics of his show:
Are you ready kids?
aye aye Captain
I can't hear you!
aye aye CAPTAIN!!!

I adore Spongebob. I really do. He gave me several minutes of blissful peace and quiet today.
