This week I am grateful for every one of my readers. There may not be many, and I may not get a lot of comments (or any...) but I'm grateful for you all. Anyone who puts up with reading my small space on the internet deserves recognition!
I'm grateful for the sun today. It's been rainy and generally gloomy recently, but I just looked out the window and saw sun! This makes me happy.
I'm grateful that my job is going well, my manager seems happy (for the most part) with my work and the drivers enjoy me.
I'm grateful that my 52 Letter Challenge is going well and I'm pleased to say that I have yet to miss a week! It's early yet, though, so don't get too excited. I'm sure a missed week (or more!) is in the cards.
As an aside, this week's letter was written to an old friend who I don't talk to nearly often enough. She is recently pregnant, and though we had a long conversation when she told me, we haven't talked since, or much before. I feel bad so...a letter was due. I think next week's is going to my grandmother though, since I got a letter from her in the mail!
But I digress. I am also grateful for Mint.com which I have recently fallen in love with. A whole post on Mint is coming, though I'm sure a lot of you have heard of it and use it already. It's changed my life already and we've only just begun.
On a related note, I'm grateful for the bank! We opened up another checking and savings account so we can filter money into different accounts for different goals. Very exciting. Once we get credit card debt paid off we are going to start saving for things like a vacation to Hawaii next year and a replacement car that is (hopefully) still 4-5 years away.
And finally, I'm grateful for Swagbucks! (yes, that is a referral link, but if you don't want to help me, just go to the site yourself. It's so worth it). I've earned about $20 in Amazon gift cards ($10 of which went to a Christmas gift in December) and I'm loving it. It takes me about a month to earn a $5 card which seems like forever, but it does add up! And I love that Amazon will hold onto your gift cards and accumulate a balance. I'm not sure what I'm saving for yet, but I do know that I love free Amazon.com money! (Who doesn't?) There are plenty of other things to earn on Swagbucks, but Amazon cards are my favorite.
And with that, I'm back to work! I'm grateful that I only have about 4 hours left of work...the afternoon always seems to go faster than the morning!
What are you grateful for today?
