Today was a nice relaxing day. Mom and Dad left at about 3:30, which was later than we expected, but overall we had a good time with them.
I got all the doors taken off the upstairs and the painter is coming tomorrow or Saturday to start that project. It’s crazy how much is going on with the house – I’m glad we are able to do it now instead of wait for ever. It’s funny how our priorities have changed over time. Initially we were set about yard work, but that has faded and we will eventually get it done, but basement bathroom has taken priority along with painting trim and doors. It’s been so nice that Becky and I always seem to be on the same page about this stuff. I imagine this could be a source of contention if I was in a bad and resentful place.
I’m grateful that we got to go swimming again tonight with the kids.
I’m grateful we had limited contention today, the first day of the new year.
I’m grateful that tomorrow is Friday and the last day of our vacation. I’m ready to get back into a routine.
I’m grateful to be in recovery today.
I’m grateful I got my step work done early in the day today.
I’m grateful the baby is kicking my leg right now as I type my journal entry in bed.
I’m grateful Mom and Dad made it home safe tonight.
I look forward to tomorrow and the opportunity I will have to submit my will to Him.
