'Tis the Season

To take a step back and think about the things that truly make you happy, and most often, things we take for granted. I'm kind of getting a late start on this but from today until Thanksgiving day, I'm going to post one thing (each day) that I'm thankful for...these things are in no special order.

You should try it too!! :)

I was going to post a funny little story today anyway so we'll go with this one first!

I'm so thankful that Travis was able to find a job. It's not even just a regular 9-5. It's one he likes. It's one where the pay isn't horrible. It's one where he is working with his friends, and one where he can and will learn so many new things. This is SUCH a relief. There was awhile there where it seemed like NOTHING was available and we were kind of struggling so I'm very, very thankful for his job. :)

Speaking of his job, everyday at noon Trav calls me for a sec during his lunch. Today he said his boss started to teach him how to weld (something he's been wanting to learn for a few months now) he knows a tiny tiny bit, but there's definitely a lot for him to learn! After asking how he thought he did, he said he thought he was doing pretty good...and that he'd only caught himself on fire twice.


I had to think about it for a sec too.

"Caught yourself on fire twice???" (Trying not to laugh)

"Yeah...well, the first one I just burnt my hand pretty good. It wasn't really on fire..."

"And the second one?"

"Well, I had just finished welding some pipe and I was walking back to put it away and I looked down and noticed my pantleg was on fire. I just had to pat it out real quick."

I laugh only because I can picture this happening. Only I wish his boss would have made him stop, drop, and roll. That would have been even better. Apparently the "pat" works just fine though. Everyone in the shop has already learned how to weld so for now, Travis is the excitement I guess...hopefully not for too long though :S That's sort of scary!
