Thank You Very Much!

It's Free Therapy Day!! That's right, it's Thursday, which means it's the Thank You Very Much day. The way it works is that you post your little peeves that may have affected you in some way during the week and say, Thank You Very Much in a slightly sarcastic tone.

I saw this over at my friend Mimi's and knew I had to give it a shot!

To my sons who think that all the packed boxes are now just flat surfaces waiting to be covered with their toys. Thank you very much.

To my best friend, who now has me hooked on these new Starbuck's Cherry Coffee drink thingys, thingies? Thank you very much!

To our mail lady, who I guess is trying to beat her best delivery time by leaving our neighbor's mail in our mailbox therefor forcing us to deliver it for her. Thank you very much.

To the 3 dove's that have built nests and had babies on my husband's ladder hanging outside the workshop, we're moving and would like to take that with us so could you speed this along a little bit. Thank you very much.

To the neighbor across the street, could you please keep your cat inside so I don't find squirrel parts under my patio furniture while chilling out. Thank you very much.

And last but not least, to the telemarketers that call and ask for money for a charity that we've never heard of and when told no, ask why not. It's none of your business, thank you very much.

Wow! This was very therapeutic. You should try it.
Go on over and visit The Daily Dribbles if you want to give it a shot.

Don't forget Friday Funnies is tomorrow. Get your family friendly funny ready to link up!!



  1. Isn't this great therapy? I absolutely LOVE Dark Cherry Mochas...like drinking a chocolate covered cherry!
    Squirrel parts: EWWWW!
    Have a good day!

  2. Wowzers on the squirrel parts and oh how I hate telemarketers. Well not the people...just the job they have to do. OH no on the ladder and the boxes. YOu are trying to clean up and they are making a mess. Hee hee. My son and your sons would get along great. I guarantee it.

  3. I can't believe I didn't make this list....thank you very much!!!!

    To my friend Debra who needs to drink milkshakes and gain 7 pounds instead of shred...thank you very much!
    There I feel better!!!!!! Haha

    love you!!!

  4. A cherry coffee drink at Starbucks? YUM. I must go try that!

    Stopping by from Kmama's

  5. Oooh, I haven't had that drink yet. I guess I need to try it. :D

    Ewww on the squirrel parts! Ugh!

  6. Hope everything goes well with the move, looks like the hubby will be getting a new ladder - you know you can't rush nature!

  7. I read your blog with a Jeff Foxworthy kind of spin which made me laugh even more until I got to the squirrel parts....my coffee has never tasted worse~thank you very much! LOL

    I heard a lady call in to Air1 radio and encourage drivers to baby talk the person that might have just cut them off in traffic or who is following too closely...so I tried it. My girls thought I had flipped my lid but it really works. You'll have to try it but add "thank you very much" to the end. You know, if you have occassional road rage too. Blessings to you!

  8. The neighbor's dog always poops in our yard and the owner never bothers to clean it up.....and we don't own any pets......Thank you very much!

  9. HA!

    Thankyouverymuch for the great laugh!

  10. To the scorpions and water roaches that decided to make the inside of my home theirs..Hello invitation ..show me yours!!! I hate this time of the year..bug spray anyone!!!

    To the old septic systym..hey guy(not a girl..eww)thanks for hanging in there during the wedding..but come now..backing up now....everyone is gone..did you eat a toy or something....country life...

    To the virus that attacked the whole wedding party..thank you for waiting till after the wedding..and oh yeach..nananana..you missed me!!!

    To the 4 inches of rain we got overnight..Thank you..now I don't have to water the garden!! The septic and the bugs don't like you ..but I do!

    wow that felt great..thank you Kim!! lol

    Hugs..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  11. Siblings were horsing around in the house and the younger one took a nose dive and lost a permanent tooth.....and we do not have dental insurance......Thank you very much!

  12. Thanks so much for linking up! Those are some great Thank you's!

    I cringed at the squirrel parts under your patio furniture Eek!

    We used to have mailman that would always give us our neighbors mail. Same number, but different street name, so it wasn't like they were just next door. We'd have to take a walk or drive over to deliver the mail. It was so frustrating!

  13. Squirrel parts, sick!! Our neighbors cat leaves us prizes in our flower bed : (

    I know what you mean about boys thinking any flat surface is for their toys, ugh!!

    Best Friends are the best, even when they get you hooked on Starbuck's!!

    Too bad for the doves, believing they will move along before you have to.

    Love your "Thank you very Much" post

    Love and Blessings

  14. I got a good chuckle out of your list...thank you very much!! And I really mean that...I'm NOT being sarcastic.

    But here's one...to my neighbor's kids who race their ATV's up and down the road so that it sounds like we live in the Daytona Speedway...thank you very much!! (ATV's are for isolated or rural areas...not heavily populated subdivisions!!)

  15. And thank you very much for your post! Hahahaha!!!!!! Yep, I feel your pain on that moving business!

  16. You wrote those "thank you very muches" very nicely! Makes me wanna try it!

  17. To those charity telemarketers, I just say that we have our charities selected and hang up.

  18. Oh Kim! You SO needed that today! LOL...and ... your welcome, hee hee hee.. :)

    Um, sick about the squirrell parts...when did that happen??? EEEEWwwwwwww

  19. Next time a telemarketer calls and asks for you (or whomever), say "Just a moment please!". Then go sit with a coffee and chill out.

    If you want, you could check every 2-3 min or so saying "Are you still there? Hold on and I'll be with you in shortly." And just do your own little survey on how long it takes them before they hang up on you.

  20. You always make me laugh! I love the last one for sure!

  21. Oh, this does sound like good therapy. I am going to have to do this....:) Thanks for giving me a laugh tonight.:)

  22. Isn't this thankfulness good therapy!! :) Sometimes it is so much better saying "thanks" this way ;)

    Happy thursday

  23. Hee,hee - I liked this my friend! I would have posted one of I had time.

    To my political party who thinks I need to be annoyed by 3-4 voicemails per day until our primary election to keep me informed...thank you very much.

    To my body who has decided that metabolism is evil and should not exist except in reverse by gaining weight when exercising and eating right...thank you very much.

    Love that your sweet friend brings you Starbucks (yum!)!! Big if-I-lived-close-I-would-bring-you-Starbucks-too-and-then-you'd-have-double-the-reason-to-Shred-so-it's-a-good-thing-I-don't size hugs to you!! Love ya! :)


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
