Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful that:

- all of our misc. afterschool activities are nearby. Piano lessons, scouts, violin, ballet, church activities, all of it is within a 2 min drive (approx) from our house. How glad I am that I don't have to be driving very far when I am shuttling the kids here, there and everywhere.

- the yearly IEP meeting is over. I can breathe a little easier now.

- things worked out with the car issues we were having. Or at least Zac managed a way to get where he needed to go. The car is in the shop. But so it goes.

- I am thankful for liquid dishwasher detergent. Where have you been all my life? After our dishwasher started having drainage problems and Zac took apart the dishwasher components and scraped off 7 yrs. of detergent buildup, we are happy to have finally discovered liquid that does not leave a residue. (I know, simple pleasures)

- Thankful for my kids. They are good, talented, and terrific kids - even though sometimes I find it hard to remember.

- And I am so thankful for Zac. I don't know what I would do without him. He has been out of town and every day just feels so much harder knowing he won't be home at 5:30.

That's it.
And you?

You have great things to be thankful for, for sure! =)

We got a new dishwasher a few years ago and the man who installed it recommended that we always use powder dishwashing detergent because it doesn't leave a residue. I never knew that! But, since then I have been using powder and he seems to be right! =)

so powder isn't supposed to leave a residue and liquid does?
our experience seems to be the other way around. Oh well! :)

We can't use powder because the buildup is WAY worse!!! So I want to know what liquid you're using. Do tell!

It's just the cheap stuff - Electrosol Finish Gel, I think. But before we used the cheap powder and the liquid works sooo much better! Not as much residue on the dishes and on the rest of the dishwasher. YAY! :)

I'm thankful for giant Symphony bars. I do so love them.

Thursday night TV, did I say that last time? Maybe you should do this on a different day.

My laptop, so that when my other computer is sick I can still access my drug... information.

Hmm, I'll have to try switching to liquid. I've been using the tablets for awhile and I like them fine.

I'm thankful for sweaters and hot cocoa. And not snow.
