I am thankful that we finally decided on a contractor to rip up the mass of cement and aggregate so I can finally have soil to plant my native garden.

I am thankful that the same contractor is going to install a new paver driveway and courtyard patio and fix a multitude of problems left around here from the previous owners.

I am thankful that the contractor is going to be able to start in one week.

It is highly doubtful that I will be thankful for the entire day and possibly more of solid jackhammering on my first day of my vacation but it will be worth it when it is done.
