Thankful Thursday.

Today I am thankful for:

-- remembering it is Thursday so I can write a gratitude list! (I forgot last week.)

-- a lovely chick tribe gathering, and a trusty automobile in which we fled home in the wee hours when the boy missed his daddy so....

-- A daddy who loves his boy so much and plays so good and works so hard.

-- A spur of the moment(ish) trip to Chattanooga to see Mama Loca and the family (again), and a most enjoyable visit to the Creative Discovery Museum. (as per photograph above)

-- The concrete realization that our family's future is in our / my hands, and simple resolve, elbow grease and a plan.

-- Vick's Vapo Rub infused Puffs Plus tissues procured late the other night by my Mister. As weirdly gross as it sounds, the nasty stuff coming out of my and Ziggy's noses and the attendant chapped, red, blistering skin is even grosser.

--Feeling better after a couple days of bad croupy snotty ick. Again.

--Yo La Tengo on the stereo as I bust a move on this huge to-do list.

--The boy pooping out the quarter he swallowed last week. Seriously a relief. No X Ray. No further medical intervention. No additional long-time payment plan on yet another medical bill.
