My computer seems to have healed itself. I hope we’re not headed towards Skynet, but I’ll take what I can get right now.
The cat peed in the litterbox and the dog has not thrown up yet.
Sam has a ruptured ear drum. She’s on the meds now and she will heal herself, but she was in a lot of pain last night and I had to sleep in her bed which means that I’m stiff and sore and getting by on very little sleep. Still, it was worth it when I woke up to dim daylight, opened my eyes, and found her watching me with a sweet, loving smile on her face. Then she touched my nose with the tip of her index finger and said “boop” just like I might have done to her. It was just about the sweetest thing she’s ever done.
So I have some Little Things, even today, to be thankful for, along with many Big Things like my family (and the potential for enlarging it), my good, good friends, my Best Job In The World, my travel plans, and much more. And you know, writing it out like that actually makes me feel the emotion – not so much of gratitude, but of appreciation. Thanks, Thanksgiving, you came just in time this year.
