Thankful Thursday

Happy Halloween!!  Remember to be safe while you’re out and about with your little ones.  The Mr is working a double shift today which means that the kiddies and I will be staying in.  I’m not complaining though because honestly, I don’t think the people in this neighborhood pass out candy.  So, we’ll be hanging out getting candy wasted and watching kid friendly spooky movies on Netflix.
I’m thankful that everything went well at JJ’s follow up with the pediatricians on Tuesday.  I got the official report back from his allergy test with the numbers telling me what class each of his allergies are.  And boy was it scary.  God has really been looking out for us because a lot of his allergies were Class 4 and higher. 
In fact, he’s so allergic to peanuts that it was off the allergy scare.  The scale goes from 0.0 to 100.0 and his allergy level was over 100.0!  So pretty much if he looks at peanut wrong, we could be in serious trouble.  Thankfully, due to Moo’s peanut allergy we feed the kids any type of nuts.  The Mr has had peanut butter in the house, but he was only allowed to have it after the kids went to bed and he had to thoroughly wash his hands and everything he touched afterwards. Yep, it’s that serious around here when it comes to nuts.
I’m thankful that JJ is finally coming around to these new gluten-free, soy-free pancakes I have been making him.  At first he wasn’t feeling it, but now he likes them.  I’ve been thinking about just cutting out breads from our diets all together and just do meats, veggies and fruit but then that I wouldn’t leave us with much to eat for breakfast because both kids are allergic to eggs too.  I’m personally starting back with my fruit smoothies.
I’m thankful that the Mr has been supportive and understanding through everything.  I’ve been feeling very overwhelmed with the food allergies and the speech therapy starting and Moo not being able to go to preschool.  Yea, thanks to the government shutdown, the extra funding needed to allow a new wave of preschoolers to start class didn’t come through in time.   No worries, we’re still learning at home though.
I’m thankful for creative inspiration.  I’m back to working on my novel and the ideas for future chapters and even a sequel have been flowing really good recently.  I’ve been jotting down notes so that I don’t forget anything.  I’m really excited and giddy about being back to writing fiction again.  I’ve gotten a lot of inspiration from music (thanks Spotify), old writing notebooks and even my diary. 
I still don’t have a working title for it, but I’m sure that it will come to me soon.  I’m definitely going to be releasing this book in print and working my butt off to get it on shelves in major bookstores.  I’m thankful that I was able to give one of my blogger friends some words of encouragement recently.  She’s going through a very rough time at the moment and my heart breaks for her and her family.  I want to do something special for her, but I’ll definitely have to recruit some help to pull off what I want to do.  I’m sending up a prayer to God that He’ll open up a couple of doors.
What’s on your list of things to be thankful for?

    I would be so scared to even have peanut butter in the house. Glad you are working on your novel can't wait to buy it and support when it's done. I am thankful for water because one of our neighbors had hers cut off because she could pay the water bill and put gas in her car I am so thankful for the little things other people take for granted.

    I'm glad he's ok. While I have pretty serious allergies I don't have any food allergies and I can't imagine what that would be like for someone so young. I hope that he can continue on without any attacks.

    Good luck with your novel- everything will fall into place with it in due time. Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon 🙂

    I can't imagine what it's like for him either. In a way, I think it's easier at his current age because he doesn't know what he's missing out on. I just worry about when he goes to school and he starts to see that he's eating something different from the other kids. And thanks for stopping by. Will definitely be visiting your blog on the regular!
