the gratitude files


My house is still standing.


And completely minus any funky smells emanating from the Silence of the Lambs basement.


The dogs are a little twitchy from last night's teenager overload, but muddling through with the help of lots of Milk Bones.


All my kids are home - snoring softly in their beds.


Mom and Stu are back tomorrow for one more night before they head home.


We had a lovely, calm, drama free weekend in the ER. No joke. We really did. None of us believed it, but it was true. (Except for that pocket full of narcotics I accidentally brought home. Oops. Live and learn.)


And I have a week off right around the corner. To stay in town and get some things done - peaceful like. Run, write, relax. Surfer Dude's soccer season kick-off. Gumby's first ever tennis tournament. Sasquatch's birthday dinner tomorrow night with the grandparents.


Life is good. I'll take it.

See how things turn around from being frantic & unbearable to a calm & happy period?

My guess is...... you might miss the frantic after a while!

Happen around us each and every thing has been recorded, and some quiet, some have been excavated.
