Stressful day saved by Ordinary Miracles

Today was a rather stressful day for me. We are into the construction project pretty heavy now. I am the everything person on it. I do love it but today I decided to take on Rexburg City Hall. The cost of the permit and the process to get it was getting out of control. I talked to a couple of City Council people and other builders. So I headed down to get an explanation of why things are the way they are. I wanted a full accounting of the costs and where the money would be spent. I explained we are very stressed by their process and prices. They gave answers to all of my questions. I still disagree with the costs and the time it takes to get the permit. However I walked away with my permit. So on Wednesday we will go to the City Council meeting and tell them what we think. I came home tonight with my head overwhelmed and Berta had posted this song. I love it and so am posting it also. It helped to calm me down. Anyone remember when I was a shy girl. Where did she go?
