Today I'm having to dig a little deeper for the gratitude. We are feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work that needs to be done to our house. I am thankful for the opportunity to work on it, and I am hopeful. I stood at the top of our stairs in our attic and imagined myself sitting at a table overlooking Spokane and painting. It will be wonderful. And I imagined the tall steep stairs painted with a fun quote. I'm hoping to get the attic cleared out soon.
I am thankful for a washer and dryer. This is so huge. We got an awesome one that can add steam to the washer and dryer. This makes washing the diapers a breeze. It's also fabulous for making sure thrift store scores are clean. I did the smell test, and I thought it passed, but by the time I got an orange beach towel home it was a little musty smelling. I washed in a regular washing machine and had it out in the sun for a while, but it still smelled a bit. After running it through the sanitize cycle in our washer it smells oh so fresh. It also has a huge capacity, so I can really wash a lot of clothes at once. It's also awesome because it doesn't use much water at all, which makes the tree hugger in me happy. We save $80 a month by having a washer and dryer, and I get an extra day at home each week. Good bye laundromat.
I am thankful for friends who happen to have awesome furniture in their garages. (Thank you Courtney) I am having fun folding fabric and storing my milk glass collection in an awesome green hutch.
I am thankful for a girl who went to bed early (8:00 pm) and the extra hour we get tonight. It is the best night of the year in my opinion! I need the extra hour tonight for sure!
Aren't you proud of my blogging frequency? I'm thankful to be back in the swing again.
