(and what would be the point of looking on the crappy side, it's just too easy to see)
I would be thankful for
dependable places for outdoor low-possibility-of-infecting-others entertainment when the littlest one is only displaying vague first symptoms
the delight of a new melon-baller (by his special request) and having all the watermelon to himself since nobody wants his germs
oh yes and movies, thank heavens for Apple TV and being able to rent movies without moving one's germs outside the door. Chipwrecked (better than I expected), Journey to the Mysterious Island, Men in Black (when Clem was out), Matilda (I got a bit teary), Muppet Treasure Island
Yes our couch really is as dirty as you can see, and more.
I was supposed to be back at work this week so I am also thankful for that being mostly non-urgent and manageable by email.
I wouldn't wish this flu on anyone but I'm doing my best to find positive moments in this unscheduled halt to affairs. I'm hoping we can make it through this without the need for doctors and antibiotics.
And oh, maybe next year I'll go back to carting us all off for flu vaccinations. Do you get the flu vaccination? Does it seem to work for you?
