We decided that the cold and rainy weather would not be conducive for a Sounders family outing, but Potamus and I went with Boof to the pre-game festivities at McCoy’s Firehouse in Pioneer Square. It was fun to feel a part of the revelry, but still make it back before the No-NapMeltdown! I look forward to warmer weather and an actual game-day, because Potamus looked so cute in his little Sounder’s jacket!
Boof bought me flowers, to say Thank You for getting through the busy season with him. I said that he was the one who did all the work (who knew accounting could be so HARD with a kid), but he said that I did the work, being home late every night with Potamus and trying to juggle everything without him. Flowers to celebrate that the busy season is over and real-life can resume.
But I look at those flowers as a celebration, because, as of Monday, Boof is now employed as a full-time tax accountant! He proved himself a worthy seasonal accountant, so they’re keeping him on full-time! YAY! This means we can stop borrowing money from our in-laws, and can afford to take a breathe without the haunting past coming for us! It’s been a long year, but I am so thankful that we have gotten through it, together, and have proved to be stronger, closer, and a little bit more thankful!
