Good morning! It's technically Friday morning, and I haven't gone to bed yet. Hopefully Jeanine doesn't read this and beat me about the head and shoulders. :)
The past few days at work, I have been working long hours and missing lunch. Wednesday I was going to go visit Jeanine, but I didn't get out of work until around 7:00pm or so. That was thanks in part to my favorite CEO and his special projects he likes to assign me. What a major bummer! But, tonight I was able to sneak away to Las Animas and hang out at my parents' house for a few hours. Jonnie had made some Chinese food (which turned out very well), and there are always good snacks there. :) I even had ice cream with sprinkles. Yum! My mom, sister and I visited for a while, and waited for my dad to get home. He has been taking EMT classes in La Junta on Mondays and Thursdays and usually doesn't get home until late on those days. It was nice to just sit and talk with everyone and forget about the deadlines and looming projects at work.
I don't do it very often, but I really need to thank God at LEAST daily for my family. I talk to so many coworkers at the office who have broken/messed-up families and that helps me realize how much I have to be thankful for. Unfortunately there were lots of times I didn't appreciate this blessing from God, but I'm making it a goal to make up for those times.
With our first baby coming SOON, I hope we can have the same loving/close family setting that I grew up in.
It's almost 1:00am, and I'm starting to nod off, and probably not make much sense. So... without further ado, I will sign off. Good night and God bless!
