Surprises

Today, well, today it was a bit tough to find some gratitude.  The oldest was kind enough to bring home a cold this weekend, and I’d thought I’d dodged it, but today it caught me.  The morning wasn’t too bad, but by lunchtime I was dragging.  Then it was nap time.  Sir Plum went right to sleep, but as usually Peaches fought like crazy.  After 2 hours, and several desperate attempts (cajoling, soothing, scolding, you name it) she finally went to sleep.  I curled up.  Ten minutes later … Plum is calling me.  We watched a lot of TV the rest of the afternoon.

I suppose I was grateful to get through the day, but I was uninspired to pick up my camera.  Then I got a call and an invitation for a little girl’s-night-out fun, something I have not done in eons (really, truly, it has been more than ages, definitely eons).  And so, tonight before falling into bed, I am grateful for surprises.

    isn’t that always the way it happens? The day you need the break the most is the day no nap or very little nap happens. Hope you feel better quick…. I too was hard pressed to feel grateful yesterday since my 2yr old had a stomach bug and the washer and dryer had never worked so hard!
