So many things.

I am grateful that after an extremely fussy day yesterday, the boys slept soundly and through the whole night. It was a rare day for them, but I think it’s because they got so little nap time the day before. We should be able to get back to our normal routine today.

I’m grateful that our insurance covered my battle with the goose and it’s not costing us the full price to fix the Cadillac’s bumper. I’m also grateful that the car should be done today and I can get back to earning some much-needed money.

I’m grateful that I have a husband supports me no matter how crazy I get. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I know very well that I am a handful and not the easiest person to live with. The fact that he has survived for as long as he had is amazing.

I’m grateful that my brother is handling everything with my dad. I know it’s not easy. It’s not easy to figure out all the logistics of getting Dad into a place where he will receive the care he needs. It’s not easy to handle the costs associated with all of this. It’s not easy to watch your father deteriorate in front of you.

I’m grateful for so much more, but I don’t want to get into all of it. Just know that if you are in my life in any sort of way, I’m grateful for you. Even if we don’t talk all the time, I still am glad you’re in my life.
