Grains of Gratitude...

It has been a crazy few weeks and missed doing them so here they are....thanks Christine at Brady's Bunch.

I am so thankful that Spider's family survived Hurricane Dean with some damage and got their power and water back. Marie left her late Thursday night and had a good visit with everyone. But went home to no power or water...but came on late Friday night. You do not hear about Jamaica on the news now but lots of damage happened and many people lost their roofs and trees.

I am so happy Aviva started first grade and she seems so happy. Her class now has a total of 15 students...I sure hope it stays that way. Looks like I am going to be room mom again..which I enjoyed last year too.

Spider helped me grocery shop nice to get the help but then we always spend more. We are starting the South Beach Diet tomorrow--so bought lots of fresh veggies...looking forward to the eggplant pizza (slice the eggplant, drizzle some olive oil and seasons..bake for 6 to 8 minutes then add sauce and low fat mozzarella cheese and bake till melted). Got some yummy recipes and lots of salads.

I started class this week today and looks like I am the only one in my online thing I have to do is review a book and do a power point. So I decided to read a book on autism from a father's perspective--so far it is very good.

And best of all Aviva is thrilled to be registered for soccer. We got her a pink ball, grey and pink shin guards and black and pink cleats. We still have over 3 months but never to early to be prepared.
