Focus on the Good

I feel a lot better about things after letting myself vent to the blogging world. And it didn't hurt that all of you had such nice things to say(which is not why I did it by the way). But I have decided to try and focus on the good things in my life, which are many. My kids still drive me crazy, but I also love them like crazy. So here is my first post of the good things in life.

Cokes, Slurpees, and Refinancing
Trent and I just closed yesterday on our refinancing mumbo jumbo. We got a killer rate and the best part is it's only a 15 year loan. Which means when it is time for our kids to be graduating from high school, going to college, and going on missions, we will have no mortgage. Perfect timing I'd say. And so to celebrate, we hit up the local Maverick. Trent got his 44oz coke and I got my coke slurpee. It was awesome.

Yum. What I wouldn't give for a trip to Mav right about now. Oh, and yes, the refinance too. Hope you are well!

That is great! We did the same thing recently and it was such a great day to see how much in interest we would no longer be paying to go to a 15 year {I still get giddy thinking about it sometimes}. I think I got ripped off though...I didn't get a slurpee afterwards :)

Wow!! Congratulations! That is so great. That's the best feeling in the world to be that much closer to paying off your mortgage!

Great post! I totally agree with you focusing on the good things always seems to make things seem much better. I was complaining the other day about things and found out my neighbor who is our age just had their 1st baby a month ago and is now in ICU trached and on a vent dying with stage IV colon cancer. It totally made me realize how blessed I am and really my life is not bad at all. Seriously I don't know how you do what you do I have three and my life is crazy! For what it is worth you do an amazing job and you have darling kids!

When did you convert to coke? You should try a coke freeze from Crown Burger if you haven't already....so good !

My favorite thing about this post is that your husband drinks Coke. I myself being a Coke drinker, finds it refreshing that someone who runs as much as he does still enjoys a coke. Makes me feel much better.
