Then, wonder upon wonders, a friend let us borrow their table. Really! We can actually eat without holding our bowls or squatting with them on the floor. The boys can do their pencil work in the correct manner. We can work on our laptops without our laps overheating! Tables are amazing! Who came up with such an invention? They really need to be thanked.
We also now find ourselves in the possession of a vehicle. Although not as much one of those simple pleasures, it has taken a huge burden off of us. We are now free to explore our city, go to the grocery store at our convenience, make connections with people, and just basically have freedom to move about. It's a wonderful feeling, really.
