birthday gratitude

despite being sick, i had a great weekend and a lot to be thankful for.

i’m thankful for my husband and my baby and the love and laughs they give me every day.

i’m thankful for my extended family and friends and all the cards and warm wishes and packages and messages and love they sent my way.

i’m thankful for my new cat and my dog and my past cats and dogs.  pets bring a different kind of happiness to a house and i’m so glad to have a cat back in my life.

yesterday we woke up, ate a giant cinnamon roll, and went to the humane society.  i’d already identified a few cats i wanted to meet and we fell in love with the first one we met.  he’s sweet with Jude and good with Sandy and has already made himself at home.  i’m pleasantly surprised he didn’t spend the first hours (or days) hiding under the bed and with how chill he is.  he is a good one :)

in addition to the cat (which was his idea), Chris scheduled a massage for me and has given me the gift of sleep for the past week, getting up with Jude while i’ve been drugged up and restlessly sleeping.  i couldn’t ask for a better partner and i’m thankful every day that he’s mine.

Today was a day of rest after a pretty packed Saturday. After our requisite trip to Target, we went to our first baby birthday party, got in some cousin time, and checked out Larkburger. We’re so hip.
Chris and his brother’s family went to the Broncos game while the boy and i stayed home and crashed.  I have a disgusting cough and was beat after interacting with people who aren’t us for so long.  It really takes it out of you, ya know?
