Fankful Friday

Welcome to the second installment of Fankful Friday, the post where I make up for Thankful Thursday on Friday.

Yesterday was a rough day. I felt pretty punk all morning and Jonz and Al were both lay-on-the-couch sick. I've been potty training (a task that leaves me wanting to scream and hit things) Al and Goose with extremely little success. Jonz and Al got back their energy after lunch while I had a growing headache. By three o'clock I was on my knees on my couch, curled up in a ball, and pressing my head into the cushions because that was the only thing that eased the pain and kept me from throwing up. Migraine fun. For the next couple hours the boys came up to me periodically to show me an arm, face, leg, etc. that they'd covered in stickers while I tried to persuade them to stay in the playroom.

Around five I started to feel the fog lifting and sat on the couch with a headache hangover for the next hour or so. Bret brought dinner home (because he is AWESOME) and by 6:35 I felt good enough to jump in the shower and try to get to Book Club at 7.

Which is where the gratitude comes in. I am thankful for the book club. It was a very refreshing end to a rough day. It's always a welcome change of scenery and fun to spend an hour or two discussing books with great women in the neighborhood.

What are you fankful for today?

I'm glad you found a book club in your neighborhood! I'll take that to mean that you don't want to get my obnoxious e-mails anymore. We'll have to get together sometime and compare notes. I love to hear what other people are reading.
