Waiting to pick up my son from work so nothing much for now. I’ll come up with something later.
It’s been a long day and I still have to fix supper for the kids. I’ll post something tomorrow.
I would say these kids are going to drive me to drink but they would probably make me walk!
Two kids down with colds and I’m hobbling around after walking too far. I hope they feel better tomorrow because I don’t know if I’ll be able to get out of bed.
“There are a few things that are more exciting than living your dream in Hollywood, but veteran producer Shadi Petosky is proof that transgender people can succeed there, too. “
Well, Ive had better days than today…
Two sick kids, a pounding headache, and getting my fingers caught in a door pretty much sum thing up.
Thankfully, the kids are doing better than yesterday, mostly bad coughs and drainage. My headache is mostly due to sinus pressure and my fingers, while very sore are just bruised and not broken.
So even though there have been times when I just wanted to crawl back into bed and pet end today didn’t happen, I can see how things could have been worse and I should count my blessings… which I am doing!
I’m not sure if I will post anything later or not, even this little bit of typing makes my fingers sting, but I will have more to write about later in the day, (Saturday).
So I hope everyone is safe and sound at home, keeping warm or cool as required, and that you all have a wonderful evening.
I played hermit today… it’s my last “day” off as I have to go into work tonight and quite frankly it was cold outside. Like highs in the teens cold and well, I hate the cold. I swear once I catch a chill, it takes me tip June before I start to feel warm again.
So I stayed inside, with a coffee pot I kept full and just enjoyed time with the family… which wasn’t much as the kids were so wrapped up in the their Christmas gifts. Not that I am complaining, they were quiet. No fighting, no rough housing, no little feet stopping across the house like a one child herd of elephants… it was actually pretty nice. Of course it won’t last, it never does, but then if it did I would wonder what happened to my real kids and who switched them with these aliens?
I did take some time and put together a new playlist for my music player. The last one was Christmas music and that just had to go now that the new year is here. I also decided it’s time to catch up on the few television shows I watch, which I am hopelessly behind on, my two favorites at the moment being “Once Upon A Time” and “Elementary”. I also added some new books to my Nook, “Odd Apocalypse” By Dean Koontz and “Cold Days” by Jim Butcher. I’ve been waiting for the Butcher book as I have loved all the books in the ‘Dresden Files’ series so far. The ‘Odd Thomas’ series by Koontz has been good too, in a fun, quirky, sort of way. Another series I like is the ‘Kay Scarpetta’ books by Patricia Cornwell. Each of them is interesting and well written and I can never wait for a new one to come out.
So… the new year is here and now it back to life. Not exactly the same life as the year before, but it really shouldn’t be should it? A new beginning, each day a chance to do something special no matter how big or small. A chance to tell someone “I love you,” to watch the sun rise or set… or both.
You know, if there has been just one change in me, beyond all the other things, it is this… I can take the time to see these things, to appreciate them and to understand just what a wonderful gift they are.
