This week is one of those weeks where I am having a hard time finding a lot to be thankful about. Grrr! I hate when I let the little things get me down.
Worry #1~ I did NOT make the Chequamegon lottery 😦 😦
Reminder~ I didn’t make the lottery last year either, BUT was able to gain an entry by writing an essay. (Which happened to make the Fat Tracks newsletter!)
Upside~ Maybe the good people of Hayward just really wanted to read another haiku, poem, or limerick from me 🙂 I have already written my 2012 essay and am hoping they will like it enough to let me ride again!
Worry #2~ My 4-legged, 10-year-old baby, Beasley, got injured while playing ball on Tuesday. He has been hopping around on 3 legs ever since 😦 Did I even mention the thought of vet bills, x-rays, possible surgery????
Reminder~ He is a healthy, determined beast! Who else would chase a squirrel around the yard and somehow jump on one hind leg up the tree after it?!
Upside~ We did take him in to the vet and did incur some $$$ in x-rays and medication, BUT the vet thinks he just tore a few stands of one of his knee ligaments and didn’t completely rupture it. *phew* Now it’s anti-inflammatory meds, rest, and wait to see what happens next. Finger, toes and paws crossed that this works!
Worry #3~ Did I mention that I didn’t get into Chequamegon?!
It is Spring Break for my boys this week- so I am trying to come up with some fun things to do that don’t cost a lot of money and are close to home. Lucky for me, my boys are easily entertained and just like being home with us. Yea!
I have been enjoying sleeping in every day and not having a schedule. We have kept it pretty low-key, but have found fun in the simple pleasures of our daily life and for that, my dear readers, I am thankful!
