Thankful Thoughts

Well you guys, the move was pushed back until this Friday.  The bad news is that I was working like a dog to meet our original deadline (17 hours of overtime in one week).  I finally saw the light at the end of the tunnel and then BAM, the hammer got dropped.  The good news however is that I got to enjoy the weekend!  I went for a much needed mani/pedi.  I had my brows thread.  I spent Saturday afternoon vegged out on the couch doing this.
See my pretty nails.  It was bliss I tell you, sheer bliss.  I am so thankful for the downtime and I'm ready to push thought this next week.

I was down at the construction site this afternoon for a walkthrough and took this picture.  Check out the view from my new digs.  Not bad right?  Last week when I wrote, I was under a great deal of stress and was literally limping towards the finish line.  Funny how some time off can change your perspective.  The truth is, this project is great for my career and I'm beyond excited to be moving downtown and into Petco Park.  I'm hopeful that the new location will bring new energy to our workforce.  More so, I'm grateful for the chance to have played such a big part in such a huge project.
I'm thankful for these thankful posts.  I've noticed a huge change in the way I'm looking at things.  Little unimportant things are catching my eye and stopping me in my tracks.  Little bits of everyday life just screaming at me to see them in all of their glory.  Just some weeds and a wall that caught my eye on a walk last week
I'm thankful for you guys.  I'm sure you'll all disappear when you don't hear from me for days, but you don't.  This place is such a great outlet for me.  Only 8 months in and I couldn't imagine Brass Honey not being a part of my life.

I'm thankful for D who continues to cheer me on and support me throught this madness.  He doesn't even flinch. 

I hope your weeks are off to a great start.  I'll be back Wednesday for Humpday Confessions with the fabulous Kathy.  Until then.
