silver lining Saturday part VI

Part VI? Really?

Another week and it's all good. Here just some:

I'm thankful Chaco's wrist is not broken. Been there, done that. By the way, know how to really bug a geeky kid? Mess up his Rubik's cube when he's got a sprained wrist. MUA HA HA HA HA HA! HA! (wasn't me, I swear).

Finished up with the LSAT class this morning. They were a nice bunch of students, but I'm thankful to have that 4 1/2 hours on Saturday back.

I'm thankful for Biz. When you spend as much time as I do doing laundry, Biz can make the thankfulness post.

I'm thankful for that new bike bell. Now if I could just come upon someone to use it on. Well, I guess I could be thankful for non-congested bike paths too.

I'm thankful the kids like their schools. I hear stories now and then from parents whose kids just don't want to go sometimes for whatever reasons. Although he homework doesn't seem quite as appealing....

I'm thankful for the library. I battled with some greasy guy who was checking out like 20 DVD's in one pop, and managed to get a fun movie after a Netflix mishap involving Chaco rearranging our queue... Oh, I hear they have books there too.

I'm thankful for that milkman. Probably don't say it enough.


  1. I really like it when you get all thankful on Saturday.

    Makes me think.

  2. You have just inspired me to add "visiting the library again" to my list of goals. I used to go there a lot! And then I got antsy and just started doling out cash for the latest must-reads!

    You do have some good blessings again this week. Reminds me to appreciate the little things and not always expect my blessings to be big stuff.

    I was thinking too... I could just mail you my copy of The Shack. It's a great book, but I don't usually read my books more than once. Not sure if you have my email address ("territerri3 at gmail dot com") but let me know if you want me to send it. It's just gathering dust here.

  3. Glad to hear Chaco's wrist wasn't broke. :)

  4. Have you rung your bell yet?

    Glad the wrist is okay - and you survived having the good son home for a day.

  5. I'm waiting for a bell update too.

    It's funny but I was walking on a path recently with the dog, and someone rang their bell at me...

    Weird thing was they were walking at the time.
