This year there is a lot to be thankful for in our home. As most of you have come to expect, it follows in list form.

  • John is happily employed in what we have come to refer to as "The Job" - meaning the job he has always wanted, the job he wants to stay in for years and years and years to come, the job he sees himself enjoying for the very long haul.
  • We are finding our place in this community and looking at longer-term housing options that will help us put down some roots here. Because of the first bullet, it's the first time in a long time either of us are in a root-putting place.
  • I just got a new job working for John's company. I won't share much about that, particularly until things get sorted and settled more certainly, but it's a wonderful opportunity for me, and I would be hard-pressed to find something like this elsewhere in Livingston.
I will hopefully be posting more in the coming days, although we are traveling to El Paso for Thanksgiving, so I will be out of pocket a bit. Suffice to say there is lots to share, and lots to look forward to, and lots to reflect upon as this year comes to a close.
