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????
