I am grateful for a zoom call with a fun bunch of in-laws this evening. It was nice to see them all. It had been too long since we’d seen them before the pandemic, now it’s been even longer.

I am grateful for Julie’s aunt Peggy, who reports she reads these posts every time I write one, and Peggy’s daughter, who said she only said that because she wanted to be mentioned here.

I am grateful for negative Covid tests, and a go ahead to send my kids back to school. Farley, Coop and I were never that sick, but these days, I didn’t want to take any chances when we all had symptoms of a mildly sore throat. I am grateful for some time with them at home, and tomorrow, I’ll be grateful for some time without them at home.

I am grateful for my job. Today I hit my goal for gross sales for the year, which I didn’t think I’d do earlier on when the pandemic started..

I am grateful for family fun night, my pick. Julie picked up some steaks and we made ourselves a fancy dinner, then the four of us went for a short walk after, using the excuse of mailing some letters. After that we came home and screened the Talking Heads film, Stop Making Sense. That’s some great music right there.

I have so much to be grateful for, it’s hard to know how to narrow it down. Any day I am on this side of the ground is good thing, and as good a place as any to start.
