A tutor student called earlier to reschedule our session originally scheduled for this morning. It seems that today is Homecoming at his school. As if that's more important than Pattern Analysis!
Magnum is out of town on business today, so Chaco and Wolfgang were all set to earn some babysitting dough while I was at work. They're a bit disappointed. I told them, "but now you get ME!" No surprise - they wanted the cash.
But it gives me a chance to sit down and do my weekly thankfulness post. Roll 'em!
Injury updates. I'm thankful that Chaco's wrist is just about back to 100%. It's still a little weak, but it's not like Mr. Ectomorph was much of an Incredible Hulk when it comes to arm strength in the first place. He was happily able to ride his bike to school this week after walking there all last week.
And speaking of injuries, I'm thankful that my bout of Osteitis Pubis (gotta capitalize that one) only lasted about one day. I was *ahem* back in the saddle, so to speak, on Sunday, and it hasn't bothered me since. I also learned some good stretching techniques while being educated on all things injurious pubis!
New Stuff. And, as mentioned, I'm thankful we got that pretty new furnace all up and installed. Just in time it seems, because this weekend, Baby, it's cold outside!
Scheduling Conflicts. I'm thankful I worked things out with the school librarian regarding that book fair next week. Yep, I called her up and just said, "Listen honey! I was only giving you some options when I circled 4 different shifts! This isn't the dang Peace Corps! Pick ONE and be grateful!" Okay, maybe it was a little different wordage, but we got it straightened out. Seems she was in the mode of "it's easier to ask for forgiveness later than to ask for permission ahead of time". I forgave.
Male Bonding. Last weekend, while I was at work, Magnum took the kids to an Air Show that was in town. I'm thankful that they had a good testosteral day of looking at different kinds of aircraft, and they even brought me back some gifts! I must show you my squishy miniature Navy football and Battleship bling!
Boring Can Be Good. This week I learned of some upheaval involving a wife doing bad things that will change a family forever. Monogamy is a choice, not an instinct! Choose wisely! Anyway, I'm thankful that my homelife is, for the most part, happily boring.
