Today was the pits. It really was. But guess what?! It's almost over and tomorrow is THE WEEKEND. Also, I just got out of the tub from a nice bubble bath and even though I am still achy all over and have a laundry list of grievances (as John Darnielle would say), I am actually starting to feel semi-cheerful again.
Thing I am thankful for #18: JOSH!
(Ha ha ha. Look at what a little mister chubby face the Emperor used to be!)
I have been saving this one because well, it's so obvious. Of *course* I'm thankful for Josh! Also, I don't want him to get too pleased with himself if I laud him on the internet. Don't want him getting any ideas.
But he merits extra mention today. Here are four things he did today that I am thankful for:
1. He loaded the dishwasher. (No joke, this is a fast and easy way to my heart.)
2. After a toner cartridge exploded on me at work and I was freaking out, he came and picked me up so I wouldn't have to bike home in distress/in the rain.
3. When I charred the garlic bread, he did not react by sitting down on the kitchen floor and crying (my reaction). Instead he carefully scraped off the burnt parts for us so we could eat the garlic bread.
4. He consented to the Emperor's unrelenting demands to watch an episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which let me spend another 10 minutes in the bath tub by myself and gave me adequate time to towel off and put on clean jammies.
He is pretty good.
Dinner tonight: not as good. Well, not bad, just uninspired. I was in no mood to cook, so we just had potato-leek soup from a carton, garlic bread (burnt, but salvaged) and some salad. Here's the salad and the garlic bread:
Isn't that the saddest food picture?
The Emperor helped me make the garlic bread and really loved eating it, even though it was not really very good. Here he is enjoying a piece:
