Thank You Very Much

We’re joining in for the launch of “Thank You Very Much” – a weekly post brought to you by KMama from The Daily Dribbles!


It’s a chance to share some tongue-in-cheek gratitude.  Maybe this will help keep me from drowning my “gratefulness” in Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream…?  Head on over and read what everyone else is thankful for!  I mean, after you share my misery for a bit :)


To the horse who temporarily lost her mind last night and turned into a runaway steam engine headed straight for the half-finished fence… thank you very much for that terror-filled ride in which I clung to you as you disobeyed every single cue to STOP before you impaled us both on the fence posts.

And I know exactly what your carrot-begging face looks like.  None for you today, Thank You Very Much.


To the person who presented my work as their own - then tinkered with my master copy and forgot to cover their tracks, Thank You Very Much.  I feel needed.  (And everybody else already knew).


To the kid who simply scowled at me as I told him to put all 14 tubes of toothpaste back on the store shelf, then immediately obeyed when Aunt Ju told him to… Thank You Very Much for that public display of defiance.  I love you like crazy, you little booger.


To the guy I married who made me bust up laughing in the middle of a rather heated “discussion”… Thank You Very Much.  I was fully intending to amaze you with my debating skills until you leveled me with a one-liner.


To this unbelievably stubborn insomnia…  I am quite sure that under-eye circles are not the latest rage, Thank You Very Much.


And speaking of things that are not the rage… neither is this 3-year post baby body.  To all the strange and not-wonderful spots that became friends with my postpartum fat: please return to your rightful place and give me my butt back?  Thank You Very Much.


To our sweet bloggy friends who commented on yesterday’s post about how weird and crazy stuff only happens to us… Thank You Very Much for making us feel quite abnormal and a bit like circus freaks.  We love y’all, don’t go away, you know there’s more ;)

Wow so you had a run in with a fence yesterday?! Loved your "thank you's"!

ps~ In my defense I said it in a nice way :)

I had to come over and check out your blog because your comment was directly above mine over at Foursons right now and you freakin CRACKED ME UP! So funny! You have such a great blog and this is a fun meme. Would love to be a new follower if you follow as well. :)

Mom Of Many said...

Your tongue in cheeks cracked me up!

Kmama said...

Thank you for linking up!! Great Thank you's. So how did the horse debacle end up?? I hope everyone was safe.

LOL at Itty Bit being a little stinker to you, but listening to his aunt. My Buddy ALWAYS does that and it drives me crazy. I told my mom she is never allowed to leave my side. LOL

I needed a giggle today. Nothing like starting the day with heartburn and a coffee stain on my shirt to irk a pregnant girl, so thanks for the smile I know will carry into the rest of my day!

renee said...

loved this post! especially about how mr. daddy leveled you with a one liner. i think they all do that! geez! you're so mad and you think you're finally winning a debate and they go and pull that one on you!! punks.

Ms. Sarah said...

thank you for the giggles

Foursons said...

Ahem. Did I just bring you a new follower? You can thank me over and over and over again without ceasing. You're welcome. :D

Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream? Are you making these sundaes all by yourself or are you buying this yummy goodness all wrapped up in a container?

You apparently lived to tell us the story of the horse- so I assume you are alright. But we all know what assuming does to a person.

And really- someone plagiarized you? Wow.

And Itty Bit- oh that boy is giving you a run for your money! Talk about testing limits every chance he gets! Stay consistent now or things will go from bad to worse in the blink of an eye!

Mr. Daddy- you rock!

Insomnia- you suck!

Post Baby Bodies- you need to take a flying leap!

And I'll repeat- weird stuff only happens to you. Are you sure you're not in some kind of Truman Show debacle?

He & Me + 3 said...

I love this post. So funny. Oh Itty Bit & Stunt Man were separated at birth I know it...I can speak 10 times & he won't listen, but if Nonnie asks once he listens. Seriously?

Emily said...

Glad you survived a runaway horse incident. Good grief!
And I'm with you on the defiance...lovely, isn't it!?

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Oh I am so glad that you were not thrown from the train...;) Your fence post accident could have been a bad one!

robin said...

LOL!! I enjoyed reading this! Perfect start to the morning!

Susan said...

Loved the way you did this tongue-in-cheek gratitude post! Too funny!
Here's some NOT-tongue-in-cheek gratitude: Thank you, crazy horsey, for not killing our Rachel on a fence post. Seriously, that's why I can't picture myself getting on those unpredictable beasts!
I think our curiosity is revved up now, wanting to know about the plagarism thing. I can't think why anyone would attempt that against YOU!
Men know they can stop us in our tracks with well-placed humor....why do we even TRY to win an argument--even when we know we're right?

Lisa said...

There is a huge reason I am scared half to death of horses. THEY ARE BIG! And they can go whichever way they choose! LOL Plus they sense that whole "Fear" thing, so that doesn't help me any either. Glad you are in one piece. Dang Mr. Daddy and his one liners. Don'tcha just hate that? lol Good start to my day. :)

natalee said...

I loved your list..especially the post baby body!!! LOL!! U R a great writer..LOVE IT!!!

Pam D said...

Oh, the pleasure was all ours.. it was nothing, really. Oh.. and... for making the rest of us feel so very boring, blah,and stuck in lives that have no truly memorable moments... Thank YOU very much!
lol on all that you wrote.. except for the insomnia. Not funny, that. Well, I guess the crazy horse moment wasn't so funny, either, but the carrot face? Stinkin' hilarious.. can you take a picture of that?

My hubby always makes me laugh during heated discussions...It makes it really hard to be mad when he does this, and dang it sometimes I just want to be mad no matter how cute and funny they are! But I guess it's just their way of making sure we aren't taking life too serious. :)
