Grateful Sunday

23 Aug

It’s already arrived. Sunday has crept up on me again, making me wonder, “Where in the world did the weekend go???”. *sigh* Another work week awaits, five more days until freedom. I like my job, truly I do, but lately I’ve just been soooo out of work mojo. I think it’s a vacation after-effect. Just can’t seem to get back in the swing of things. Now that I’m done whining, here’s my list of things that I’m grateful for this beautiful Sunday afternoon:

1. My job. Regardless of the moaning I just did in the sentences before, I am very grateful that I have a job, and that I enjoy the people I work closely with each day. I’ve worked in jobs that I hated, and know how fully blessed I am to have landed where I have.

2. You’ve Got Mail- movie with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks- circa 1998 (OMG.. I just had to look up the release date, and I can’t believe it’s been out that long!!). I love love love this movie. Two of my favorite actors, set against the backdrop of the book business. It doesn’t get much more perfect to me. Add in the fact that I adore Greg Kinnear, and I totally lust after the Meg’s brownstone in the movie, it’s a constant re-watch in my house. It always makes me long for autumn, twinkle lights and crisp, new books.

3. Sturdy garbage bags. Operation Simplify started this weekend and I already have three huge garbage bags of items for the thrift store. I even placed on our curb a large toy that Jalyn no longer wanted and it was gone within 15 minutes. YES! I’ve been taking pictures of the process, and hope to share them soon.

4. Restaurants that deliver. I’m craving some hot wings, and think I’m about to place an order. I wish grocery stores delivered. Wouldn’t that be awesome!?? I hate hate hate, absolutely DESPISE, going to the grocery store. Is there a grocery shopping internet site that I just haven’t stumbled across yet? If there was, it would be number one on my Grateful List.

5. WordPress. For a variety of reasons, I’m in the process of converting the OB over to WP. I’m having fun stumbling around trying to figure things out, and I hope that my readers here will happily follow me over there once it’s complete. But I certainly have to figure out what I’m doing first, LOL! It’s definitely different from Blogger–but so far, it seems to be a little easier. (I’m sure I’ll take back that statement when I become stumped and started hassling people for help:))

I hope everyone else is having a good Sunday as well. Thanks for visiting the OB!

    Dang it! Now I want hot wings! As far as WordPress? Hooray! Pester away. Once you figure out the basics it *is* easier. I’m very happy with WordPress.

      I’m already liking a lot of the features, but some things are just stumping me, lol. Like that stupid “just another wordpress weblog” that is under my header. Can’t figure out how to get rid of the darn thing!

        Jess – I don’t see it. I see “random musings on all things i love.”

        Oh crud…sorry, forgot to tell you that right after I sent you that message, I figured it out:)

        Hee, hee. Glad you figured it out! How’s the rest of the learning curve going?

        Pretty good, I think. My blavatar still isn’t showing the pic I uploaded which I don’t understand. I can’t figure out how to have my posts emailed to my dad (he would never remember to click over here, LOL) and I don’t know if there is a way to have your blogrolls sort by newest posts or not. Other than that… I’m doing just great! LOL!!

        Oh, and I keep turning off the pingbacks (which I think are what make those suggestions above appear) but then they just come back. Hmph. Stubborn boogers.
