Three things I am grateful for right now:
1. Dh has managed to get his old ass all the way through basic training
2. And got paid for it, allowing me to catch up keep the lights (and now heat) on, have a phone/internet, and I even got to buy Dd a birthday present for her 3rd birthday, which is like the first birthday present I have bought in I-don't-know-when. PHEW!
3. That my WIC lady is so darn nice!! My last WIC lady was very sweet and nice and I thought I'd never encounter another. I lucked out!
