I just got home after a long day at work (I am convinced the clock was broken and did not move for a good chunk of an hour today) and then running errands in the MESS that is California at Christmas time - the clock is moving too fast now, so much to do and so little time!
However, I am thankful.
I am thankful for the job I have (even when the work day draggggggs by).
I am thankful for the ability to go out into the sea of crazies and be able to spend money on my loved ones.
I am thankful for Jesus - we are celebrating His birthday, after all.
I am thankful for the little things... like my warm cozy bed - I can't wait to lay my tired head down tonight.
I am thankful to be done at RCC and beginning a (scary) new chapter at CBU.
I am thankful for Houston. So, so, so very thankful.

Today, December 16th is the "anniversary" of the day Houston and I met. On the Metrolink train. Yes, miracles do happen.
Our first meeting went something like this:
Houston: "No fella would ever carry a coupon binder..." [I was clipping coupons]
Elise: "Excuse me, you who's name I don't know... you can mind your own business."
Elise: "What's your name anyway?"
Elise: "Ooooh, Houston is too good for coupons..."
And so, the journey began.
I am thankful he thought I was quirky and funny and still wanted to talk to me. Apparently my man knew something that day that I didn't, and I am so thankful he stuck around long enough for me to figure it out.
