Today, I am grateful for sunshine. It makes it so much easier to face the day when you can step out the door into warm, inviting sunlight.

I am grateful for my family. My nosy, politically-aggravating, demanding, nosy, talkative, prudish, did I mention nosy? family. They're such a pain in the butt, and I wouldn't trade them for a thing. They're not perfect, but they're perfect for me.

If only I could find a way to get them to stop calling at 9am on the weekends...

Maybe just don't pick up the phone? Set the answering machine to pick up after a ring or two or even turn the ringer off until you egt up. Maybe even let them know you won't be picking up the phone before ... whatever time you desire ... on weekends. It might take a few weeks for them to get the hint, but eventually they might stop.

I'm grateful for answering machines. ;)

I can't hear a phone ring and not answer it--it just drives me crazy. (Think Who Framed Roger Rabbit--"Shave and a hair cut...") Even if I turn the ringer off, I'm a light sleeper and can hear the ones downstairs. I've asked them not to call early--they think it's a joke, and they've learned that it's one time that we're reliably in the house. We've got voicemail...I'll find a half dozen messages from the span of an hour--none with any information, just "We've been trying to reach you."

Argh.

I love them, though.

I'm grateful for time spent with my daughter last night.

Love this thread.

I brought mine into work with me today...and as much as she's pestering me for food, I'm happy to have her here with me. She's made all kinds of new artwork for me to hang on my walls.

Lucky you; my boss called me on my cell phone as I was in Au Bon Pain at 9:10. God help me!
Not to rub it in on you, but I should have instead written, "I'm grateful nobody ever notices when I come late to work, and even if they do, they don't give me any grief" :D

I had no idea what Au Bon Pain was until I looked it up just now. My first instinct was to assume it was some kind of pain :shock:
