the simple things - third time's a charm.



it's been a couple weeks since i last participated. and, considering i've been kind of mopey & down in the dumps lately, i feel the need to do this. i have to do this. after all, there is so much to be thankful for, right?

as jesslyn amber says...

"let's forget the hustle and bustle.
let's put away our troubles and worries.
let's be thankful for our life.
and the simple things."

so what have i appreciated this week?
  • breakfast for dinner. mmm, maple pancakes & bacon!
  • old school 90210 reruns. 
  • a job interview.*
  • snuggles with the pups.
  • coffee with two amazing friends - my favorite beach bum & my favorite trucker wife
  • listening to back to black. may amy rest in peace.
  • losing just our electricity during monday night's crazy storms.
  • spending time at my mother in law's house on sunday & monday.
  • looking forward to a weekend filled with friends.
  • having a date night with the hubby. tonight. even if we're going to a 311 concert. 
  • guest posting for a friend while she's out of town.
  • saving $81 at the grocery store...and i only used one coupon.
  • and, speaking of groceries, i learned just this morning that whole foods is opening a store in my area!!

    what are you appreciative for this week?
    it's all about the simple things. remember to link up with jesslyn amber, too!

* about that job interview: that was monday. i received a call yesterday. it's a no go. apparently, i don't have experience with children. unfortunately, years of education classes {i started my graduate degree five years ago, folks, taking classes here & there}, nearly 100 observation hours AND being the parent of two children doesn't count for much...if anything, at all. i understand the requirements, but it's extremely frustrating when you can't get a job to get you the experience needed in the first place. que sera sera. i'm okay with their decision. and, for now, i'll just enjoy the rest of summer vacation with my children until school starts up again...for the both of us.

Woa momma! How'd you save $81 with one coupon?

Thank you for you comment! I've been looking around on your blog and I really like it. :)

Sorry to hear your interview didn't work out. I've been there too; not experienced enough to get a job and no job to get the experience needed... But hey it all worked out fine and I'm sure it will work out for you too!
