It's Sunday and I'm Grateful Even Though Murphy Appears to Be Camping Out on My Front Porch

I've decided that every Sunday I will list the ten things I am grateful for here.  Unfortunately, Murphy has paid another visit (see #1) but still, there is plenty to be grateful for.

  1. A couple of days ago part of my tooth broke off.  Fortunately, it was just a small piece of it and I don't need a root canal.  Unfortunately I will need a crown (which costs $650).  We've decided to just have the crown done in Las Vegas instead of paying the $1200+/- it would cost to have my SIL do it in Connecticut.  I am grateful that the problem isn't worse as a crown and a root canal would have cost much more to fix (hubby suggested just pulling it out for $100...he said he's seen plenty of people in the Philippines eat with many fewer teeth than I have!  I vetoed that idea and will be happy to pay to get it fixed).
  2. I am grateful that my sister came to visit for the weekend.  Before she arrived I was actually kind of dreading her visit.  I hadn't talked to her in about three years and I usually couldn't really stand to be around her for more than an hour or so but she called me out of the blue after she heard we moved to Las Vegas and asked if she could come down to visit.  I was really happy to see her little girl, who I hadn't seen in nearly five years, and her wife/partner is really nice as well and seems to have a calming affect on her so all is good!  
  3. I am grateful that our realtor hasn't given up on us yet.  We are on offer #13 (#11 and #12 having been declined because they accepted cash offers instead of our offer) and this is yet another place that I really like so I am hoping it goes through and if it doesn't I am sure there are many more nice places to offer on.
  4. I am grateful that it is April Fool's Day and no one has played a trick on me :).
  5. I am grateful that the weather here in Las Vegas is beautiful AND that really not much blooms here so I have had absolutely no allergy problems this spring.
  6. I am grateful for the awesome hubby (I am always grateful that he is so awesome).
  7. I am grateful that I will be able to pay off my computer this month.  I had absolutely no idea how I was going to get the money back into our emergency fund when out of the blue a friend had some work for me to do.  She even called on Friday and asked if I minded if she paid me right away (of course not!).
  8. I am grateful that I didn't win the lottery.  I am happy that other people won the lottery and it may be an answer to their prayers.  I, on the other hand, am happy that my life will stay the same and I am not looking at the daunting task of what to do with so much money.
  9. I am grateful that it looks like I may have another small job to do today as another friend said she had a client for me and he wanted to meet up with me this afternoon. Yeah!
  10. I am grateful that I was able to figure out WordPress and didn't have to call my web hosting company and have them un-mess-up the server side of my website after I got done experimenting with it.  I can't believe it worked!
What are you grateful for this week?
