Yesterday we woke up to discover that during the night my van was vandalized. After a bit of anger, I tried very hard to find the positive in this. The damage was cosmetic and does not affect operation of my Scarlett. It is fixable. And finally, the damage didn’t happen while we were driving. I happened while we were safely asleep in a warm bed.
So, I am spending the morning watching vintage Sesame Street with Faith and drinking bad coffee while Jimmy works on my van in the hotel parking lot. And you know what? Life is GOOD. We are blessed. We have a warm bed and Jimmy has a job. So many people have neither of those.
Most awesome Thanksgiving offer ever! One of Jimmy’s new coworkers, knowing we were living in a hotel, offered us his home for the day. They will be gone. They are leaving us a Thanksgiving dinner in the fridge, Daisy is welcome to run the fenced in yard and full use of the washing machine! I am THANKFUL!
What are you thankful for?
We have arrived in our new hometown somewhere in Pennsylvania.
We are living in a hotel.
We have found a house to buy.
We can’t close until December 28th.
Looks like we will be living in 150 square feet for quite a while.
48 hours in our new hometown and Faith is already sick.
Also, Utz Cheese Curls are da bomb.

Cheyenne WY – Three hours of listening to Choo Choo Soul, two high altitude nose bleeds and one snowstorm named Brutus outran.
