Thankful Thursday (on Friday)
I had noble intentions about yesterday but that is how things go.
On the bright side yesterday night I got to go to my monthly Mom night out and one of my favourite Mexican restaurants and I had a beer and a coor’s light (nope, not 2 beers) and yapped with a fun group of ladies and we only discussed potty training for about 2 minutes and never mentioned diapers (except for our service project brainstorm – I think we will do a diaper drive for a local charity for very young single mothers).
Today is a sad day in the back of my mind because a friend died suddenly this day last year and I have Time Hop to ever remind me… But, she was a person who didn’t like other people to be sad and went to great lengths to make sure they weren’t so I wasn’t. I ended up baking a ton this afternoon while cleaning out the fridge and made a ‘chicken’ pie (using leftover pork roast and refried beans), I baked bread for our planned steak dinner, and brownies because we are going to a bit of a party tonight. Regardless of how young she died I’m glad for the years I knew her.
And finally, Fiona and I had a fun week doing all sorts of little things. Still so odd to just have 1 at home, by the time I get used to the solo kid thing its the weekend and I’m back to 3 :). I’m thankful for the time with Fiona and for the time with all three.
Oh – And I was going through my phone I completely forgot that I came in 6th in a 5K, we found a new playground, we went geocaching and took a nature hike with a friend. We also had a very successful dinner party followed by a revival of the nerdtastic D&D game – Its really not all that different from other board games, just lasts longer and there is wine and good snacks when you do it post high school…. Plenty of reasons to smile this week.
