THANKFUL FRIDAY, MONDAY EDITION

I realize that I didn't post anything for Thankful Friday, and there's really no excuse. I had plenty of time to write something up while I waited for a seriously over worked plumber to show up. I admit, I felt a bit lazy and of the mindset that "these people know what I'm thankful for". And while it is true that many of you could probably guess that I'm thankful for the new job, many of you couldn't guess that it is you I am really thankful for. You and flushable toilets. Everyone we've told the news to has been so happy, so encouraging, so willing to help in any way possible. It's a reminder that we are loved and have some of the best people in the world as our friends.

From the moment we decided to say yes to this new adventure, a calming peace just washed over me. I know I should be freaking out about finding a place to live, packing and moving and all that jazz, but I'm not. I'm just ready and I think if I was flipping out, taking the job would have been the wrong decision. I am thankful for the peace and clarity of this moment.

Also, I am thakful that there is no longer sewage backing up in the tub and toilets.
