One year ago my Dear Hubby and I were up here in the Chicago area scouting out a place to live, a job, etc. I moved permanently back to the U.S.A. on November 2nd, so the 9-month anniversary of that is coming up very soon. Nine months already? Time sure flies.
I sprained my left ankle very badly on February 23rd of this year, so the 5-month mark for that has just passed. The last time I got a similarly bad sprain (on the same ankle, 12 or 13 years ago), it was at least 6 months before I got back to normal, so I wasn't expecting a particularly swift recovery this time, either. I am happy to report that although I'm still not fully recuperated, I am defininitely out of the woods with my ankle. Yay!
I've been at my current job (cashier at The Home Depot) for nearly 4 months now. I no longer feel stressed out because of not knowing what I'm doing. (Whether that is because I now know what I am doing or because I just learned not to stress about it remains to be seen. :-P)
DH and I got a car nearly a month ago. We'd lived so long without one (decades, in my case) that getting our own little private means of transportion was life-changing. Tomorrow will mark the mini-stone of our return home after the first road trip in this car -- which went wonderfully, thanks be to God.
And so on.
I have much to be thankful for.
