Gratitude Monday: Twerk, plank, sneeze.

Yes, a bug caught me.  I believe it got me at a party.  A party for my bonus grandchild.  She turned 21 in August. A lot of people came together to celebrate; alas, Birthday Girl went to Florida. We celebrated anyways.  CeCe set up a bouncy house for the kids.  Which is where I believe Thing 2 and I both got caught by a bug.  Thing 2 got sick just one day before I did.

Why was I in a bouncy house anyways? A bunch of CeCe’s friends decided to plank in there.  I was in rare form. CeCe prodded me to twerk afterwards: “If you think she’s good at planking, you should see her twerk.”  What one has to do with the other, I don’t know. But, in the moment, how could I say no?

Coughing and sneezing started 48 hours later.

So, here’s my list through a haze of cold medication:

Pizza delivery: need I say more?  Pesto Chicken, The Works, and a coupon kept me in meals all weekend.

Effective no-drowsy daytime medicine and blissful nighttime remedies.  Thank you big and small pharma.

Ergonomic chairs: Body aches abated, I got my Friday and Saturday assignments finished and sent to the editor.

Fantasy Football: I won!  Both leagues.  Unconscious competent; that’s me.

Dancing with the Stars On Demand: The perfect drone to dull my mind and rest my body. (Except for Gary B, which sort of grossed me out, and made me wonder what’s his angle.)

Mild weather: I know it got a little cool this weekend, but each time I peeked my head out, I got greeted with sunshine and a perfect 72 degrees.

Librarians who take “Talk Like a Pirate Day” seriously.  Arghhh!!!

  1. Yep. It’s important to stay on top of the things I’m grateful for, including my wonderful husband, my house, my dog, my life. Even if what I most want to do is not paying off, at least I get to do it.

  2. When you’re facing a week of deadlines, Mondays are sometimes one of the most difficult days to feel gratitude (except if you’ve had PITA houseguests over the weekend!). On the other hand, having a lot of work is a good problem to have, right? Hope you’re feeling better!

      Having a lot of work is a much better problem than no work at all!

  3. So sorry you got caught by a bug! Hope you’re back to 100% health now. 🙂
