Moving into a new home isnâ€™t exactly a new beginning, but I suppose itâ€™s kind of a like a new week or new year. Itâ€™s like the chalkboard is fresh and clean and ready for the chalk to mark it up. Okay, so maybe it is a kind of like a new beginning afterall. Anyway, Iâ€™m getting used to my new place and so far liking it. Iâ€™m gradually learning to tune out the noise of I-4 (which is right behind the house) and the landlordâ€™s barking dog in the morning (he barks at cats that happen to wander by as well as other dogs of course). I think those are not too bad considering the insanity from which I was in since April. Iâ€™ll take road noise any day of the week compared to the rowdiness of college party kids. That said, hereâ€™s this weekâ€™s Thankful Things Thursday.
Iâ€™m thankful for my new place. Iâ€™m loving being able to sleep in a real bed (futons are not real beds, and definitely not as comfy as an actual bed) and not being awakened at 1am. Yes, itâ€™s nice to live with people who respect the other folks in the house. The simplest things in life are so great, and sleep for me ranks at the top.
Iâ€™m thankful to have my birds back. They stayed over my parents house for a week and I missed them a great deal. I was so happy to get them on Sunday afternoon and bring them back to our new place. They seemed happy to see me too. My birds are awesome. 🙂
I’m thankful for short work weeks. And of course three days weekends prior! I loved that we had a short week at work, but I’m already anxious for the weekend again. It’s still felt like a long week despite that it’s only the third day there today.
I’m thankful for awesome friends. My co-worker and friend Pat was extremely awesome helping me with my move last Friday night after we got off work early. It was a rough few hours and I couldn’t have done it without her.
What about you? What are you thankful for this week?
