Gratitude Monday: Twerk, plank, sneeze.

Yes, a bug caught me.  I believe it got me at a party.  A party for my bonus grandchild.  She turned 21 in August. A lot of people came together to celebrate; alas, Birthday Girl went to Florida. We celebrated anyways.  CeCe set up a bouncy house for the kids.  Which is where I believe Thing 2 and I both got caught by a bug.  Thing 2 got sick just one day before I did.

Why was I in a bouncy house anyways? A bunch of CeCe’s friends decided to plank in there.  I was in rare form. CeCe prodded me to twerk afterwards: “If you think she’s good at planking, you should see her twerk.”  What one has to do with the other, I don’t know. But, in the moment, how could I say no?

Coughing and sneezing started 48 hours later.

So, here’s my list through a haze of cold medication:

[icon name=”coffee” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] Effective no-drowsy daytime medicine and blissful nighttime remedies.  Thank you big and small pharma.

[icon name=”coffee” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] Dancing with the Stars On Demand: The perfect drone to dull my mind and rest my body. (Except for Gary B, which sort of grossed me out, and made me wonder what’s his angle.)

[icon name=”coffee” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] Mild weather: I know it got a little cool this weekend, but each time I peeked my head out, I got greeted with sunshine and a perfect 72 degrees.

[icon name=”coffee” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] Librarians who take “Talk Like a Pirate Day” seriously.  Arghhh!!!
