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.
