The Small Things

I'd like to say I have always appreciated the small things, however I don't know if I truly did until now. 

Last night I had a little break down. I don't want to play the victim because the changes and things I am facing are all GOOD things in the end....they are just a lot to deal with all together. On top of starting a new job that has me waking up at 4:30 in the morning, I am trying to continue being a personal care assistant a couple nights a week. I will adjust, but this week has been more than exhausting....exhausted is an UNDER statement to say the least. 

On top of this Sean and I continue to struggle and be faced with difficult decisions surrounding our house hunt. As you know we put an offer on a short sale in November...and we still.haven't.heard.ANYTHING! With the wedding coming so quickly we need to find a place to live, and I am not feeling so confident anymore with this house. I have a feeling it will go into foreclosure and we may lose it. So plan B....Sean's old boss has a town home he is willing to rent to us on a month to month basis...this way we can leave our offer on the house, but if we don't hear at least we have a place to live by the wedding....hmmm big decision. We are going Sunday to look at it!

To put the cherry on top, we had our last marriage class last night. We finally got to plan the ceremony!! This is very exciting, but I felt so unorganized and super behind on my planning. I wasn't able to answer more than half of the questions they had and that was only for the ceremony! 

Needless to say, I got home and I was mentally, emotionally, and physically drained....I broke down and pretty much cried myself to sleep

Back to my original statement, I don't think I have really appreciated the little things such as 

-being outside
-checking my email
-taking a cat nap
-seeing my family every day
-watching my soap
-talking to my friends every day
-holding my kitty
-having even 5 minutes to just BE home

All these little things I have really missed this week....and I now realize I took them all for granted. Now that I am so busy and my schedule is completely different these little things don't come so easily...and now I have grown great appreciation for them! Making every day, hour, minute, even second count is SO important!!

Sorry for such a sappy post! To brighten it up a bit I had to share a picture of my sweet kitty Oliver. He LOVES to watch the faucet drip, and I finally got a picture of it! Isn't this precious!?

I hope you all are having a fantastic week, only 2 more days until the long holiday weekend! Wahoo!!
