This month’s suggested theme is things for which we are thankful. This past year there have been a multitude of things that I’ve been grateful for. But instead of listing the more serious things that I’m thankful for I’m going to share with you a not so serious thing.
Like everyone else I’ve had to tighten my financial belt a couple of notches over the past year. Towards that end, I’ve stopped buying the weekly entertainment magazines that are prominently displayed at the grocery store check-outs just pleading to be bought (shhh…please don’t let anyone else know that I used to buy them). To be honest, I didn’t know if I could do it, but somehow I’ve managed to soldier through the withdrawals with the help of a wonderful new substitute that hasn’t cost me any more than what I already pay for my basic cable, and that’s watching whatever Real Housewives series is currently airing on TV. So there you have it, I admit, I’m grateful for the Housewives! They amuse me.
And last but not least, I’m ever so thankful for, drum roll please… chocolate. Chocolate is the perfect food for all occasions, and I’m extra grateful when I have the chance to watch the Housewives while eating a bowl of chocolate ice cream!
Do you have any guilty pleasures that you’re thankful for this year?
