Three good things
« on: March 09, 2015, 08:43:16 AM »
Because we need a three good things thread, right @helen?


1) The inspection for my house went well on Saturday - it looks like things are moving forward for my home purchase! Yay me for doing this on my own  :D


2) Yay to all the wonderful folks who've worked so hard to get a new forum set up. It won't be without its humps and hiccups, but that's always the way with change, isn't it?


3) In less than two weeks, I get to travel across the pond again and spend time with some wonderful folks, and I'm just so excited to be going to the UK under happier circumstances this time.

1) Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of Rich's death. It felt like it was going to be a big, scary thing. It wasn't. I didn't live the timeclock of events in my head. It was a "normal" day.

2) I've been approved for services by the Florida Division of Blind Services and hopefully will see my trainer this week. As I lose my sight, I am seeing life so much more clearly!

3) As I work here in "my" room, my new husband is in the other room grousing about his internet connection (he works from home). It is such a normal, every day sound. I love it (not that the internet is temperamental, just the simplicity of such problems!).

4) Can I cheat and do one more?  I wasn't really faithful at YWBB the last year or so. I'm grateful to have an opportunity to rekindle old friendships and make new ones here!

1. I am grateful to register today in our new "home" because I was out for some time;
2. I have my 2 precious and wonderful boys who fill my heart with gladness  ;)
3. Joined a yoga group that I can go to after work and I love it!  ;D
You are my Angel now.
A frequent "hello" from Heaven will ease my pain...

I love you my one true love.

1. Took my dad out for his 65th birthday.
2. Video of the restaurant employees singing Happy Birthday to my dad, priceless.
3. 15yo built up again and broke down. I held her while we cried. The tension in the house feels lighter.

1) It's finally warming up in Atlanta - the dog and I are both ready for springtime and longer walks outside!


2) The seller has agreed to the repairs I requested on the house and I managed to find reasonably-priced homeowner's insurance - things are progressing on this house purchase stuff (exciting but so stressful at the same time!).


3) I have book club tonight and the book we read was set in Maine and has me feeling nostalgic in a good way.

  • I saw the moon this morning!
  • My coworker sent me an NPR playlist this morning, and I actually like some of the music on it.

2) I have booked a 4 day holiday to Sydney for late April
3) A new kebab shop has opened where I live and I demolished one for the first time in nearly a year

It's a good day :)

1.  I had my first date with Tinder girl #3 last night and it went really well. She's hot and witty and she kissed me, hurrah.
2. I've booked my hotel for the Amsterdam Bago.  I'm so excited that it's happening and that we're all holidaying together
3. The project I'm managing at work is on schedule and the contingency week I've built in (this week) isn't really necessary so my workload today is light.

My children love me and are expressive of that.
I feel that life is being kind to me.
I'm too stupid to worry about much!
Grateful for the past. Embracing the present. Trusting in the future.
