Thankful For :: 221 - 230

I can't even begin to tell you how thankful I am this week (but, of course, I'll try)! After  almost two years of searching for a job, someone looked past my "empty" resume and finally took a "risk" to hire me! Peter found a great deal on a wonderful second car (we replaced the $300 car - don't ask) and it's a 5-speed with airbags, so we're both happy. But I want to add that even if I was still unemployed and we were still a one car (+ one broken $300 car) household, I still have a plethora of things for which I am thankful. Count your blessings - the big and the small!

221. A JOB for me (that I might even like!)

222. Friends who helped gut the project house

223. Financial provision - again

224. Fleece "comfy" pants - LOVE!

225. (Relatively) Inexpensive life lessons

226. Lasagna (thanks to low-carb noodles)

227. My Crock-Pot

228. Opportunities to learn and grow

229. USAA - our insurance company

230. Our "new" car (pictured with thankful owner)

As a side note, with the new job comes a reduction in my free time (obviously), so you may be seeing less of me on the blog, but I promise to still be around as much as I can (LOVE that scheduled posting feature!). Writing tends to be a form of relaxation for me, so you never know - maybe I'll keep it up! In the meantime, thanks for visiting!


  1. Congrats on your new job! I hope that you absolutely love it! I hope you still get a chance to post on your blog!

  2. Congrats! Where will you be working?

    Also, my husband has the exact same car you got. Like, same model, color, everything. :) It's a very smooth ride!

  3. Congratulations! I know how stressful it is to be without work (erm, I know exactly) so I'm really happy for you!

  4. I'm really excited for you! Finding a job after some time off isn't easy and starting it can be a bit freaky. Hope your transition goes smoothly.

    But, I'm dying here... where are you working????


There are more than 400,000 words in the English language. My only request of you is this: Use them wisely.
