But I have so much to be thankful for.
Yesterday I had my first job interview here in Texas. I somehow managed to maneuver through downtown traffic without killing anyone (who invented the one-way street, anyway?). Grahm and I ended up deciding it would be more beneficial for me to pursue another job. Even though I didn't take it, it was a good reminder that something good is bound to happen.
Last night my favorite trolls and I spent 30 minutes on Skype trying to figure out to do a three-way video chat. We still have no clue how it's done. Grahm said he got a kick out of listening to us yelling our confusions. "What?! Nooo why??? It won't work when I press this button?"
I ended up Facetiming with Molly, Skyping with Bekah, and trying to hold my phone at just the right angle so everyone could see each other. Much harder than it sounds. (Don't worry about the scraps of fabric/extra wood on the table. Just another DIY project, or two. Man, I need a job.)
Currently I'm listening to David Gray's "White Ladder" goodness (I know I'm like 10 years behind), and reading a good book on my Nook. I didn't think I would ever like an electronic reader because I love flipping pages and the smell of old books, but I love this thing! I'm reading The Night Circus which is proving to be an interesting read despite it's point-of-view issues (there's a bit of professional writing snobbery for ya.) Books always make my heart happy.
It's 74 degrees outside. Nothing puts in me in a good mood faster than warmth and sunshine. How many people can say they're wearing a tank top in January? I love it and my pasty whiteness flabbing all over the place.
Grahm also did the dishes after dinner, because he's that wonderful. Ladies, if you can't reel in a man who will cook for you, you better get one that is willing to get his fingers nice and sudsy for ya. Trust me, it's the best thing in the world (besides foot massages).
The little things are sometimes what make life the sweetest. I'm reminding myself today just how sweet my life really is.
