Thursday Thankful....

Today, I am VERY thankful for:

1. Our Legal system. Today was our court date - needless to say, Mike didn't show up (quick, look surprised!). The judge was great, he went thru the formalities, then - of course - granted us our judgement. AND he didn't quibble over any of my itemized list (I was a little concerned over the fact that SG included both the original ductwork AND the replacement - I still feel that we should pay for 1 set, but...:ehhhh:) Mike has 20 days to appeal it, then we get to go courthouse-hopping to file a legal judgement against him in all counties where he might own property. I don't expect to actually SEE any of this money, least we did everything properly.

2. My husband. Whom I haven't seen much this week - his work is INSANE. He's been leaving the house at 5:30 AM, and last night he got home at 11:00 PM. It'll be like this all this week....but a) he has a job and b) his boss will give him comp time for this. (Since he's salary, and isn't getting paid any more for all this extra work). He's so sweet - and he's excited about the pair of socks I have on my needles. :lol: Shalimar yarns, in "Zoe" (I's all greens), in my basic sock - only I've added 2/2 cables at the sides of the leg. We'll see how it works when I get to the heel....:grin:

3. My job. Yeah, it sucks - but because of it I was able to replenish the kids' wardrobes yesterday. They both are growing faster than I can knit/sew, and they needed winter clothes. Wal-Mart had a bunch of stuff on sale (Thank you Lord!!), so they're now set. I need a new pair of sneakers, but I can wait. They couldn't.

Short today - Mom is coming over to take us to lunch. :mmmmm: Laters!
