silver liningness

It's been a while since I did a thankfulness post, but that's not to say I'm an ungrateful person! A few things I'm thankful for as of late:

First of all, with the new job, I'm enjoying having my evenings and weekends free. True, my days are not so free, but I've adjusted to the new schedule and this is way better. Oh, I like the job and my coworkers too.... AND the veritable non-commute.

This past week, with the deep freeze, we got two "snowdays", although they were more cancellations due to cold moreso than snow, but I'll take them. It was kind of nice to have two days to be holed up in the house and get caught up on stuff.

It was also nice when the warmer temperatures returned.

And through my trips to go visit my mom, I discovered that the little Diamond Shamrock gas station down the road has the BEST coffee ever! You can have your $tarbuck$, I'm now a Diamond Shamrock Premium Blend girl, myself.

On that note, my mom is doing better. She's not back home yet, but she's moved to the rehabilitation wing/building where she is to get more physical therapy so as to become self-sufficient and to return to independent living.

And on THAT note, I'm going to go outside now and shovel some snow... because I can!

It's so nice when you make a job change that turns out to be one that works really well and that you really like. Good for you!

Glad to hear your mom is improving. I'm sure she's anxious to get back home. Hope that happens soon.

Very glad you're mom is recovering! Seems like things are going well, for you!

(I'd send some warm, Northwest-Florida weather your way--but there is none, right now!)

I'm glad your mom is getting better too. Wishing her a quick and full recovery!

I guess I've gotten behind on checking out your site. Oops! But kind of fun to scroll through a bunch at a time too.

Really, sex change capital?! LOL

Glad to hear your mom is getting better. You like your job, weather is getting better, and you uncovered a secret coffee source.

You need to be playing the lottery...

'Deep freeze'. *shudder* I'm such a cold wimp. Glad to hear that your mum is doing better!
