Wednesday evening, I had just finished my Love Thursday entry and was sitting at my desk crying (because sometimes that happens when I write these entries) when there was knock at my door. I opened the door with a tear streaked face and a snot drippy nose and there was a man standing there. He looked at me with wary eyes and said "Do you want me to mow your lawn?". I sobbed out something about not having any cash on me and he said that he'd take a check and I said "SOLD!". I had been stressing about how I was going to get the yard mowed before Jen G. showed up on Saturday. I need gas for the mower. It's turning cold (turned cold by now actually). Whine, whine, whine. And this guy showed up. I still cringe at the idea of paying someone to mow my yard, but I am so thankful this man showed up when he did. He was kind, efficient and he did an excellent job. He also told me that he does snow; he'll bring me a flyer. I have no qualms about paying this man to shovel snow when the time comes. Saturday morning I will pick Jen up from the airport and then we'll have a whirl wind visit before I put her back on a plane to OKC Sunday afternoon. I can't wait. I'm super thankful that she can get away to come see me. Jen's a shopper, or she used to be before she had a baby, and shopping with her is like nothing I have ever experienced. She's actually the one who gave me the courage to just walk into a Nordstroms. I would not own the best fitting pair of skinny jeans now if it hadn't been for her.
And finally, as always, I am thankful for you guys. But particularly this week. Your kind words and encouragement mean the world to me. So...here's to a shopaholic worthy weekend and a wonderful Thankful Friday.
