Thoughts, Plots and Knots ~ Gratitude
The exercise is starting to balance out now. The tight knots I had in my hips and back are working themselves out.
I'm quite honestly running out of steam for this "extreme" clean going on here. Although, I must be spreading motivational thoughts into my kid's heads. I see them cleaning quite often in their rooms lately.
Don't throw tomatoes,
but my refrigerator is spic n' span clean now. Hubby came home and said he wanted to put a lock on it (kids) ha ha!
Today's cleaning? It's too nice to be inside. I'm taking advantage of this most gorgeous day. The sun is shining, birds are singing and the coop needs a good cleaning. This weather won't last, so I'm going to make the most of it, and get outside.
Good news to share!
Hubby went to the next meeting at college with our 19 year-old this week. I had to pick up a kiddo at the high school, and everyone was gone, so I stayed home.
They came home to tell me that she gets to start school next month (not next August). They dropped the price by almost half, and the cost for each quarter is much, much lower.
The other good news? She was hired by the dog kennel and is starting work there next week. She had an interview scheduled for a pet store the same day the dog kennel called her. She took the job happily.
Today I am thankful for:
~ waking up each morning
~ our veterinarian(s)
~ my eyesight
~ electricity and refrigeration
~ trials and tribulations, because without them I would not gain the wisdom, knowledge and the good that God brings from them
~ honest people
~ the price drop on our one daughter's college cost
~ daughter getting hired
~ one, absolutely, beauituful day of sunshine
~ God's Protection
