27 :: 30

What I’m grateful for today (bullet style):

  • Smiled at 5 a.m. because I was taking a day off.  The possibilities were too much to sleep.
  • Woke up at 6 a.m. and found the boys playing video games (Weekend rule: if you wake up before us, you can play.  Sorry.  I usually like to sleep until 8).
  • They both went back to bed without a fight and slept another two hours.
  • Finished “Carry on, Warrior.  Thoughts on Life Unarmed.”  I’ve waited to finish it because once I did, it’d be over.
  • Becks woke up all snuggly.
  • 20 minutes later he was able to make it to the bathroom to puke.
  • Didn’t get a drop on me.
  • He felt better immediately.
  • He didn’t throw up the generic Fruity-Pebbles.  I couldn’t stop thinking about them in vomit form, but still poured the bowl.
  • He finally put his pants on and I didn’t strangle him during our stand-off.
  • When your hard drive fails, the genius bar makes it impossible to ignore.  The biggest FAILED I’ve ever seen.
  • I backed up on Friday.
  • The grocery wasn’t packed and I didn’t get into a fist fight with anyone.
  • Becks started to feel bad again and didn’t throw up in the car.
  • Resisted the urge to check work email.
  • When I did, it wasn’t full of “You’re an idiot” emails.  I guess those will come on Monday…
  • Figured today and this week deserved a 2 p.m. beer.
