Day 45 - 08.09.11

1. Our friends had their baby, and all is well!

2. I got a lot done yesterday - it was a very productive day for me, which is a good thing. I have so much to do over the next few months!

3. I had to run to school to practice in the labs and saw a couple of my friends. I am not looking forward to homework again, but I am looking forward to seeing all my friends.

4. We had Grannie & Peepop over last night, and totally enjoyed seeing them!

5. I was able to reschedule my CPR course - I missed the last one because I completely forgot about it, and was cutting it close to get everything done in time!

Day 44 - 08.07.11

1. We had a great time with friends from church Friday night. It was the first time we've had people over for dinner, and I enjoyed it so much!

2. We found wonderful bargains while thrifting Saturday - a coffee table with great bones that we are going to paint black and lay tile for the top, and a wonderful old wooden high chair. No, I am not expecting, but I couldn't pass it up. I *heart* it!

3. I spent most of the day yesterday with Jeff & B. We only have three more days before school starts, so the time was precious.

4. Friends from church are going to have their first baby today! I am so excited for them, because this is something they've waited for a very long time.

5. HBC finally got approval for a meeting place! It feels like we are cutting it close, but God's timing is, as usual, perfect. :)

Day 43 - 08.04.11

1. After the gas station put a $125 hold on my debit card... we were fortunate not to have a major financial crisis. I wish I could say that we didn't live payday-to-payday, but that's just not true. We're still trying to catch up from our moving expenses. That $125 hold is still here - oh, and so is the $25 charge for the gas I actually bought - but my check hit the bank in time to avoid a major crisis. God provided.

2. Finally got the dates for our internship at the hospital this semester, and it won't coincide with year-end inventory. This is a really good thing.

3. We're having guests over tomorrow night for the first time since we moved. I can't wait! So thankful that we have room for them, a place for them to sit - and of course, I'm thankful that we have friends to invite in the first place!

4. I'm not sure I know why, but even without the ability to hang my pictures, somehow this house feels more like me than our last place did. Maybe it's the color on the walls, or maybe it's the little projects I've made to spruce it up, but it just feels more personal. Even though we're not staying here more than a couple of years, I'm thankful that it can be pleasant and homey.

5. I am thankful for my dog. He is my constant companion. He may be a chicken, but he loves his Momma! I'm so glad that God gave animals the personality to be our friends.

Day 42 - 07.30.11

1. Jeff came home from a four-day stretch of work and instead of crashing (precisely what I would have done), he wanted to hang out with me. :)

2. I love seeing our church grow! We're getting closer and closer to launch, and it is so exciting to see the pieces falling into place week after week.

3. Pretty sure I have the sweetest kid in the universe. He's been so polite the last few days, and that just makes my heart sing.

4. Mom felt well enough to go to her church Sunday morning. Once her chemo starts, she probably won't get out much. I'm glad she's feeling up to going out some now.

5. Money is tight, but God has a way of providing when I need it most.
