Just Another Day In Paradise

Today could have been an exciting day--depending on how you look at it.

We've been in our new home for 2 months, and we had to replace our heat pump to the tune of $6,000.  But, if you're a "glass half full" kind of person, now we are super warm (without our space heaters) and optimistic that our electric bills will be lower.

Either way, dealing with issues in the "major systems" of our house makes me thankful for my husband.  I am thankful that he stayed here to deal with the workers (in the cold) while Jackson and I spent the day at my parent's house where there was heat.  I am thankful that I didn't have to coordinate anything.  I am thankful that the heat pump fell into the "man's" category of household management.

Today reminded me of an old country song by Phil Vassar called "Just Another Day In Paradise," and that I am happy to have such a wonderful man to share in life's most fun moments.

Love you, Justin.

The kids screaming, phone ringing,
Dog barking at the mailman bringing
That stack of bills--overdue
Good morning, baby, how are you?
Got a half hour, quick shower
Take a drink of milk but the milk's gone sour
Your funny face makes me laugh
Twist the top on and you put it back
There goes the washing maching
Baby don't kick it, I promise I'll fix it
Long about a million other things . . .
Well, it's okay.  It's so nice.
It's just another day in paradise.
Well, there's no place I'd rather be
Well, it's two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the Lord every night
For just another day in paradise.

These are just a few of my favorite photographs ever of Justin.
