Touchy Topic Tuesday....or IS it?

Before reading on, please stop over at Mama-Press' Candy Cane Winter Catalog - my etsy store is in it (Right at the top!) and I am offering a really great deal on everything in my shop! Don't forget- all custom orders must be placed by December first to receive them by Christmas. Also, due to my increasing experience in the creation of these, I will be raising prices after the new year. It's a great time to order yours now!


Hello, friends! Due to the fact that I spent all night trick or treating with two cute scarecrows, a jedi and a monkey, I did not have time to write any kind of decent Touchy Topic Tuesday. However, if you are in dire need of some controversial commentary, please click on Touchy Topic Tuesday to visit my many previous posts!

So, there may be no Touchy Topic today, but that's okay- it gives me a chance to explain my November project.

It's the month of Thanksgiving. Yeah. You know what that means. Thankfulness. I am not a fan of Thanksgiving itself, you know, the food and such. Turkey? Yuck. Not to mention the million pounds I seem to put on per ounce of food I take in. I DO, though, appreciate the SENTIMENT of Thanksgiving, and meeting up with family is always a wonderful day. That eases the pain of my most unloved holiday.

If you know me at all, and have been reading for any amount of time, you know that I'm a chronic whiner. I mean, really, whining is funny. It's what makes my blog my blog. It's the way I put things into perspective. (And if you know me like you should, that actually DOES make sense.) It has actually occurred to me that I might, at times, sound ungrateful. Despite my many problems (and, I mean, who DOESN'T have problems?) I have so many wonderful things to be thankful for.

And so, as many other bloggers and facebookers will probably do throughout this month, in addition to my regular posting schedule, I will post something that I'm thankful for that day.

Starting....wait for it......NOW!

Day 1. November 1st, 2011, Tuesday

I am thankful for a husband, who, despite how easy it would be for him to tell me to go get a job, works TWO full time jobs so that we can afford for me to stay home with our four children. It's a priority in MY life and HIS life for ME to raise OUR children, and while so many people look down on that decision and feel that I am not pulling my weight or feel sorry for my husband because he doesn't get much sleep, and he eats cold meals and doesn't get to be home much, then look at me and think that I must be selfish, high maintenance, or otherwise demanding, he knows the truth, and does his best to make sure we have what we need. Even if that sponsors some sacrifice.

I'd love to hear what YOU are thankful for! Let me know!

No doubt that having one parent home with the children involves sacrifice for most families. I think it's great that your husband is willing to work so hard...AND I'm sure you work hard raising your four babies and running the house too.

I am so thankful for my family and like you I'm thankful I can stay at home. I worked the entire time my children were growing up, it's a joy to be able to stay home and watch grand-children for them. I don't want to miss a thing.
I am loving your blog and am a new fan! Headed over to Alexa to write you a review.

Hi Brae! I wanted to leave an alexa review, but sad to say how embarrassed I am, I don't know how. I clicked on the stars in the tool bar, but the screen it took me to didn't say the name of your blog anywhere. How do I know if I'm in the right spot? Do I just specify the name of your blog in the review? Sorry to sound so dumb.

God bless,

I think you ARE lucky. Many men do not value this. They give it lip-service but inside they are resentful they have to work so hard while the woman "gets" to stay home. They don't get it....Wife IS working hard, and without her being at home, HUSBAND'S life would not be possible.

Count your blessings.
