So on to the thankfuls:
To go back a week or two, I have a new computer! It's so pretty and clean and light! That's probably a full ten in itself to be able to type on a laptop that doesn't lose battery power in less than an hour with a mouse pad that is actually functional.
Another free CSA box. No need to say more, huh?
Skip and the chickens sent me cheer-up texts this week! I am honored, let me tell you.
The tomatoes are ripening at a rapid rate. That can actually turn into a burden as I have to spend so much time chopping and freezing, but that's just ungrateful, so I didn't even write it.
I joined Instagram, and I'm really not sure why it's taken me so long. Find me there; I'm amycakedude.
As I posted on Facebook, when an old friend mentions she's heading for DC, I starting hounding said friend until she finds a time for us to meet. Fair warning, Facebook friends! And this visit was super fun because this was an old friend I'd gone to high school and one year of college with but not seen since. I got to spend some time last evening with her and her husband, who was truly hilarious.
We met my daughter's PT at a local shoe store this morning and got the kiddoes each a new pair of sneakers. We're down $250 for the shoes and two pairs of insoles (which are the pricier of the two items) to support their poor, pronated ankles, but I do think it's money well spent. The people we worked with are experts, and I am confident my children are wearing the supportive footwear they need. As a person who gets excited about anything new, this purchase has fed my shopping urge for the time being. And there's not much cuter than tiny sneakers, are there?
Between the new computer and the Swingster strut I learned in high school, I'm pretty sure I can appease the SGV with this list.
How about you? Can you appease them?
