today is the day

At 3pm today, Joel will be presenting their ideas to the BIG CLIENT. It almost seems anticlimactic. If he wins, they will still (probably) drop him back to 4 days a week. If he loses, well... I'm not really going to think about that. Either way, he won't be working until midnight (or 2 am) night after night any more and we'll get to see (more of) him.

I am extremely grateful for the outpouring of love and support via email, comments or even just positive thinking. I am humbled by the people in my life who have confidence when mine is woefully lacking. And I am optimistic that in the not too distant future that when people honestly ask me how I'm doing, I won't feel like glossing over or crying.

And my acid reflux seems to be back. Something that hasn't plagued me in almost 8 years. Hey body, stop hitting yourself.

I've been thinking about you guys since our car trip on Saturday. I hope today goes well. I've always been impressed with your ability to deal with Joels long hours, I think I would have shot myself by now or eaten alot of ice cream....

Hey! Believe me I know how you feel. Jim's company was purchased shortly after we moved here so with two mortgages, plus his rent in CA and a new baby I was a little on edge. He just got word last week that his job is secure and all will be well. I hope the same goes for you guys!

Millions of hugs and prayers headed your way. Hoping for the absolute best news possible. xoxo
