These pictures are unrelated to this post, but a post needs a picture, right? These were taken at the Spark photo booth and I felt a little dorky getting my picture taken all by myself :)
Today I am grateful, for alot of things really, I needed to write them so I can remember. First, I will tell you a story. I have been a bit stressed lately, and then, this morning, I walked into our storage room and I hear the drip drip dripping of water. Now, I will explain that last night, Casey was checking our our kitchen faucet because it has been leaking, in the process, he had to shut the water off to the sink, which apparently our really old pipes did not like :) Hence the dripping into the basement, YAY! So I immediately called Casey and of course I started crying because that is what I do when I am stressed and something crappy happens. I shut off the water and wait for him to get home to fix it. Well, of course it can't be an easy fix, it ended up being more than what was first thought (that is what happens when you have an almost 100 year old house) , and I have a husband who doesn't know much about fixing things, he can usually figure it out, but we ended up calling my Dad after Casey admitted defeat. I am happy to report that it is all fixed now, and I am still in my pajamas because the water has been shut off most of the day, so I couldn't shower :) And I ask why in the world when things feel crappy, is that when it feels like everything goes wrong? I guess we need to have the not so fun things to realize what we are blessed with. So there is my story (if you really were interested) and now, without further adu, here is what I am grateful for today:
* my husband
*being able to be a stay at home/work at home Mom
*red vines licorice (delish)
*my Mom's canned grape juice (also delish)
*random hugs I get from my children
And now dear readers, I would like to know what you are grateful for.
