Thankful Thursday 022108

This week I am thankful that I am currently unemployed. I was able, without using any sick time, to stay home with my grandson while he was home sick from school.

I am thankful that he is a good sick child. He does not whine. He takes his medicine. He lays around and does not ask for anything.

I am thankful that there is always at least one dog with him at all times to serve as a lovey or, in a pinch, as a Kle*nex.

I am thankful that he and I have the same sick sense of humor - that when I was laughing because I was sitting on the "commode"; blowing, coughing, spitting, peeing, blowing, coughing, spitting, peeing and got quite a little routine going, he laughed with me. From the other room, of course.

I am thankful that Kle*nex, and all of it's friends, are so much nicer, softer, plusher, lotionier than when I was a child.

I am thankful that he is back at school today and I can now wallow in my misery and not have to be the sweet, comforting, loving grandma.

Don't wallow. That's too sad. Just think of all the reading you get to do on blogs. I hope you have a great day.

And, I took your trivia quiz, but didn't know I was being timed. I think that cost me points.
