Thankful Thursday


Happy Thursday!  OMG, my computer has been on the fritz today.  I'm trying to hold off until at least Christmas to buy a new one, but I don't know if I can wait that long.  It runs at snail space, the battery doesn't hold a charge anymore and then it just restarts itself at the weirdest times.  Pray that we make it until Christmas!

This week I'm thankful that school is starting soon.  Next week to be exact.  I'm so anxious and excited to chaperon field trips, make holiday treats and all the stuff that moms do when their children are in school.  The Mr is having second thoughts about JJ going to preschool.  He feels like JJ's not ready for that big of a step yet and worried about what introducing such a big change will do to his progress.  We'll see how it goes though.

I'm thankful that yesterday, I got the chance to co-host on my first live Google Hangout with some awesome moms from the YouTube Mommy Meetup group!  Of course, I had a few technical difficulties, but it worked out well.  I'm really enjoying YTMM community and the family-like feel.

I'm thankful that we've starting the house hunting process.  I know you're like wait, you guys just moved, but buying the right house takes time.  I have a wishlist that has some items that just aren't negotiable like garage, fenced in backyard, fireplace and an amazing kitchen.  When you're spending thousands upon thousands of dollars on something, you should make sure that you get what you want.  So, we want to take our time and really look at what's on the market and maybe even look into building a home.

Prayers are gratefully appreciated because we've been through home-buying before and it was stressful.  We lost my dream house to a higher bidder and I was crushed.  This time around, I will try hard not to get too attached.

What are you giving thanks for this week?

  1. House hunting does take a while. We said we would start looking around spring and then buy in early 2016. We won't be moving again after the final purchase we will be there forever and ever and ever. I want to make sure I drive the neighborhood at different times of the day, see who has the most activity during the holidays, I need my kitchen to be on point. etc

    1. Yes, the kitchen definitely has to be on point. I spend a great deal of my time in the kitchen and need our home to have one that will be a great for cooking and entertaining. An island, stone countertops and a walk-in pantry are on my must-haves list.

  2. I hate computer issues. I had to replace my laptop twice in a 6 month period and our desktop died shortly after that. I ended up purchasing a chromebook because it was cheaper than a Window's based computer. It is fast, has a long battery life (8 or 9hours), and it does almost everything that a Windows machine will do. You have to use a webmail program but other than that it works great. I hope you figure out your computer issues.

    1. Hmm... I might just have to check out the Chromebook then. Thanks!
