I am grateful for some time spent on the floor with Coop and the robotic Lego set I received for my 30th birthday. I haven’t used it much in the last decade, but I have a feeling we might start to make up for lost time.
I am grateful for a long, but productive day. I set a goal that if achieved, I knew would bring me comfort. It’s achieved, and I’ll sleep better tonight, though not for very long, as a result.
I am grateful for a morning with Farley. That wasn’t the plan, and it isn’t like I don’t have mountains of work to do. That said, I’ve come to learn when this kind of thing happens, and I have no choice but to be a papa, it’s best to be an absent worker and a present papa, the only other alternative is to be a crappy worker and a crappy papa.
Farley and I had a great morning; we went to the museum for a bit and caught an IMAX movie, before getting sushi for lunch.
I am grateful for a project that’s been taken off of my very full plate.
I am grateful for a fun night with another family over for dinner.
I am grateful for a productive work afternoon and evening.
I am grateful for a better day today than I had yesterday.
I am grateful for my first day back on the acoustic bike in a while; my knee was giving me issues but now it’s not so bad. The bike ride this morning helped me have a clearer head all day.
I am grateful for Beavers. It was already dark for almost 2 hours before we met on the beach, but flashlights, scavenger hunts, chasing soap bubbles, campfire songs and hot chocolate were better without the sun anyway.
I am grateful for Coop, who loved having his own kid size shopping cart at the grocery store today.
