It didn’t seem appropriate to bring up, what with the explosions and carnage and all, but on Monday we noted Whee Kelly Doll’s birthday. We don’t know what day is her for-real birthday, only that it’s in the middle of April some time. Since Tax Day is the only day in this week when no member of T-Moth’s family has a birthday, I assignedit to her. It seemed appropriate, since Ms Terrierist can be taxing!
We didn’t really do anything particular for her birthday except say Happy Birthday a lot and give her lots of cuddles. I’m hoping to buy her a new brush this weekend and go to work on her ear mats. Her feathers are the worst, and with school so crazy I have been lax in her grooming. We are going to spend some serious brush-time very soon…and maybe some scissors time. Let her start fresh at both ends, although her buttfeathers are growing back (post-surgery) nicely already.
Anyway, I am thankful that, no matter how insane the world is, dogs are still dogs, and a good dog is good medicine for when the world is too much with us.
I am thankful that stores have changed and are changing their coupon policies, because nothing in life is free, and I use a reasonable amount of coupons, but I resent getting stuck helping to pay for extreme couponers’ hoards because you know the company isn’t eating the cost of all that; they’re passing it on.
I am thankful for a sense of humor.
I am thankful for warm weather and cool weather and sunshine and rain.
I am thankful for family and friends and other critters.
I am thankful for storytellers.
I am thankful the end of this degree program is in sight.
I am thankful for hope.
