In an effort to kick Debbie Downer to the curb, here is a list of things that I am happy about today (this may be corny, but just appreciate that I'm not expressing the stress I'm actually feeling... I wanted to spare you its ugliness):
1. Going to church with my husband 2. A nice conversation with my dear friends Jamie & Meg 3. The sun shining & weather being perfect 4. Walking outside (see point 3) 5. Eating dinner with my husband 6. Someone bidding on the Coogi Sweaters that I'm selling on eBay for my father-in-law (see picture above) 7. Knowing that this is my last weekend spent studying until May (Yes, I do know it's mid April... don't rain on my parade) 8. Ice cold water 9. Piping hot french vanilla coffee with too much sugar and cream (Ceej at my pile of sugar packets: "You better not be putting all of that in there. Completely unnecessary." That's what HE thinks.) 10. Not having an exam tomorrow 11. Having my double batch of banana bread turn out well (for the OT student bake sale, of course).
Okay, so 10 was a stretch. Whatev. Have a great night everyone! Back to the books for me.
After being crazy in love for a decade, we officially became a family on May 23, 2009. We are thrilled to be married and enjoying this exciting time in our lives! Ceej worked as a Journeyman plumber and is now bidding jobs for a local plumbing company, and Em graduated from UW-Madison in December of 2008 and is in the Masters of Occupational Therapy program at the University of Minnesota to be completed in the Fall of 2011. Our sweet baby Hazel Leann arrived April 1, 2011 (no foolin'!) and is the biggest joy and blessing we didn't know we needed. Life isn't perfect, but it sure is wonderful - We're truly enjoying every new second of God's awesome plan for our lives!
