Today, was, well, challenging. Hank Dog spent half the day puking. I spent an equivalent amount of time cleaning it up. It is 9:30 pm as I’m writing this and D just went to bed after soccer and homework. He was stressed about getting his homework done, and I had to talk him down. He’s EIGHT. I have mounds of papers to grade.
I can’t help but be grateful.
I am grateful that we have a beautiful home in which my dogs can puke.
I am grateful that I have two beautiful dogs and that only one of them spent half the day puking in our beautiful home today.
I am grateful that my son, who was stressed about his homework, didn’t puke.
I am grateful that I have two beautiful, healthy, smart, hilarious children.
And this, therefore, seems like the perfect time to announce the 2013 Edition of Thirty Days of Gratitude.
I started the Thirty Days of Gratitude Project two years ago, but last year, it moved officially to Dogs Don’t Eat Pizza. Here is the original post, explaining the project.
