Gratitude List for August

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

~Jimmy's extending the current fence to compensate for the recently torn down garage behind our property. Soon all our contiguous property will be enclosed.

~Despite being on a very tight budget this month we were able to make all the bills. Including 27 monthly bills (we pay utilities on 4 duplexes) and all the taxes and user fees (their timing could not have been more tenuous).

~We found wonderful new tenants... down to earth and experienced in life.
~Met Carol and Ron Paul yesterday!

~Stood in the front row right next to Ron Paul's family during his speech!

~Jimmy was on the news (again)!
~Joelle came to visit.

~Got my scripts filled so quickly I was able to spend some time with Jim while still on my break.

~Watching Benjamin Button with my brother Dayton.
~Hallway roof fixed... remodel can commence.

~The Doc deliberated thoughtfully about my condition (it's good to have an un-rushed session)

~I resisted ice cream.
~Instead of going for ice cream I went for a walk.

~Jimmy and I had a nice ride to tractor supply.

~Got home just in time to take Laurel to work.

~Jimmy finished the fence extension.
~Helped my Oma clean up for upcoming guests.

~Jimmy painted Oma's apartment.

~Nice nap at mom's.
~Jimmy got a claw foot tub for the loft apartment.

~Jimmy vacuumed for me.

~I spotted my self sabotage and vowed to do better in the future.
~A new day to begin again.

~Laurel passed her license exam... now she's a certified tattoo artist.

~Laurel registered for school.

~Fun dinner with Jim's family.
~Going on vacation tomorrow!

~Cleaned up the paper work corner.

~Cleared Earl's stuff out.
~Me and Mom buried a time capsule at our summer camping cottage containing all our hopes for the upcoming year (e.g. 80 lbs lighter).

~My brother Dayton and I ran across a cow crossing sign (that's how deep in the country we were!)

~I got a lot of reading done at camp.
~A great walk with an old friend.

~Stayed on my diet... day one down!

~Late fee waived for a bill I missed before I went on vacation.

~3 am cleaning sessions effectively helping to keep my sanity and house clean.
~My Professor complimented me in front of the whole class... on the first day! She remembered me from a class I took nearly three years ago. After emphatically stating she wanted good discussions she pointed at me and said, I know you can do it, you've impressed me many times in the past.

~ My cats Agony and Subterfuge (sworn enemies) were sharing the same windowsill today.

~4 of my text books are on Kindle for at least $10 cheaper.
