I made a thanksgiving resolution to find something to be thankful for every day until next Thanksgiving. Here’s what I am thankful for this week!
Thursday: Spoke to my supervisor for the first time since I got in trouble for clocking in late (was a minute over the allowed five), and was nervous about how she would interact with me, but she was totally normal. I know she hasn’t forgotten, but at least she’s not holding a grudge. Now I won’t feel so awkward when she calls me to her desk for edits.
Friday: Time with the hubster is rare nowadays (he works days, I work nights), but he stayed up late so that we could snuggle up together with a big bowl of popcorn and watch half a movie (The Miracle Worker) before bed. :)
Saturday: I couldn’t make it to my nephew’s birthday party because I had to work, but my wonderful husband went just so he could take pictures for me since I couldn’t be there. Awwwww! Check out the cake I made for the birthday boy:
You can get the step-by-step tutorial for making this cake here.
Sunday: I didn’t have to go to work until 2:45, which gave me enough time to go to the morning worship service, which I prefer over the shorter evening service, and have lunch with my hubby!
Monday: Last day (#8) of work before my weekend, baby!
Tuesday: Despite many, many setbacks, I did manage to finish three baked items for the fair! I’m REALLY excited about my red velvet cake. I can’t wait to share this one with you guys but it will be a while because I have to make another one for pictures–I can’t cut the one that’s going to be judged. Sorry! I promise it will be worth the wait.
Wednesday: My Dad! I’m not the kind of person that asks to borrow money usually, but I was desperate today and thankfully Dad was able to help me out. And thankfully I get paid Friday and will be able to pay him back really fast! It’s embarrassing to admit on my blog about our financial difficulties but this is what I was thankful for today and didn’t know how to say it without revealing less specifics. Please don’t feel sorry for us–we have more than we need and are doing better and better the longer I work with this higher pay. Thank God for that too! :D
