gratituesday: the non-cranky version

Emotions are running high... I'm irritable... cranky... exhausted... and physically uncomfortable.

What better reason to write a gratituesday post? :) I miss these things...

On this dreary, dark and rainy morning, I am so very grateful for my husband. All marriages have their ebbs and flows and I am thoroughly enjoying the high-life that we are living right now. I am more in love with him today than I ever have been.

On a more grounded note... Tommy is not the handiest of men. And that is totally fine by me. We make-do around here just fine. :)

But! Last week our AC unit sprung a leak and caused us to be without AC for a few days. A few rainy, humid days. (And for added dramatics: Let us not forget that I'm pregnant. And my body temperature is really high right now.) Instead of calling an electrician (I had already called the plumber and paid him $94 to tell me I needed to call the electrician) for help, Tommy spent Sunday evening googling, shopping for shop-vacs, sucking up water, towel drying the floor, and generally enjoying a fun game of trial and error. And he fixed our AC. He fixed it for the total cost of $48.

I am so stinkin proud of him. And so grateful... because it was probably going to be another few days before we got an electrician out here to fix it.

So this week... I am grateful for my hard-working, adorable and kind husband... and for AC. :)
