Thankful? I'm gonna have to work on that

Today is one of those days where I have to keep a sense of humor about the things I'm thankful for.

Little B got his voice back by morning, so there went that.

We survived the storm with electricity intact, which means we get to watch the game. That's a biggie.

And, I'm thankful that Leelee and Danger Girl are still alive. Mainly because D and I nearly killed them this morning. As it is, those two are my personal slaves for about 20 hours worth of work at minimum wage, each. I'm hoping that will cover the home owner's insurance deductible.

I wasn't quite sure which child to strangle first: The one who pushed the other into the window and breaking it, or the one who started the fight in the first place.

No one was actually hurt in the breaking of the window. I suppose that's a blessing of having lots of small panes of glass on the window. Only one pane broke. But that's now TWO windows within 12 months that my darling daughter has been involved in. Both times, she was the instigator. For a kid as smart as she is, she's certainly lacking in the common sense.

Pretty much everything in town was shut down due to the ice storm except WalMart. They salted the entry way and were open for business. We bought shrink wrap for the window. Ours is a non-standard window size and will take several weeks for the window to be made to order. We still have storm windows, so that's a bonus.

It's going to be a chilly few weeks around here...
