I Am Thrilled!!

I am thrilled! I really am so happy lately and I'll tell you the reasons why.

I am thrilled that I am done working until late October (although I was just asked to work this Saturday),

I am thrilled that I got to see some great friends last night, eat pizza, and get some continuing education out of the way all at the same time and for free!

I am thrilled to find out that the continuing education class that I have on Saturday morning will not be as bad as I was dreading it would be, because another good friend of mine will be there with me (plus it's free and we get breakfast too).

I am thrilled that, in 8 short days, I get to spend time in Florida alone with my awesome husband!

I am thrilled that my parents are on their long vacation right now and are having a great time (they waited for months before knowing that their time off from work would be accepted)!

I am thrilled that Laura and Jason are on vacation this week as well. I am so happy for them for this gloomy day (just how they like it) and for their adventures to the book stores and antique shops today.

I am thrilled to be a stay-at-home mommy to my 2 sweet boys. I am also thrilled to be pregnant again!

I am thrilled about this gorgeous, summer-like weather that we've had lately, and I think I am even ready to embrace the cool, fall-like weather soon as well.

I am thrilled that Brady loves his preschool so much and I'm loving my special time with just Logan as well.

I am thrilled that my grandma is turning 80 tomorrow and that we get to celebrate with her on Saturday--We love you SO much Grandma!!

I am thrilled to begin a new bible study next week (I'll blog more about this later). Even though I had to miss this first session last night, I heard great things about it and I can't wait to dive into the study tonight.

I am thrilled that we've had 3 more people interested in our car for sale just yesterday. I am also thrilled that Peter will be showing it again tonight after basketball. Hoping for a sale this week--the timing would be excellent!

I am thrilled to have just paid our property taxes for the next 6 months, and also thrilled that they went down this year! I always dread that bill :).

I am thrilled that we have worked out plans with our babysitters for our upcoming trip. I feel completely confident in Uncle Jason handling the boys alone for 2 days (I'll have to provide plenty of Mountain Dew :), and in Laura and Jason teaming up for the other 2 days. The boys really have gotten easier as they've gotten older.

I am thrilled to have Jesus in my heart! I really am!! I can't imagine how hopeless life must feel like at times to those without the hope of Him. I am also thrilled that I never had to experience life without Christ---thanks Mom and Dad--thanks Grandma and Grandpa! I am thrilled that Peter and I now get the opportunity to share Jesus with our own children--I wouldn't have it any other way!

Thanks for reading today. I hope you are all feeling thrilled today as well. Please share if you are, I'd love to read about it!

No new pictures today. Hopefully I'll get some good ones on Saturday at the big party :).
