You take the good. You take the bad.

You take them both, and there ya have…
a Saturday that is off to a pretty good start. 😉

Here is a back-and-forth listing of our day so far. I love focusing on the positive, so I’ve started each pair out with the challenging side of things first, so that we can end on a good note.

The Bad:
We took Daddy to the airport early this morning.
The Good:
We made it there on time.

The Bad:
Most of the roads to and from the airport were super-slick.
The Good:
We made it home and up our ice-covered hill without running into anyone.

The Bad:
It is bitter cold.
The Good:
The sun is shining.

The Bad:
His gate has already changed, and his flight is slightly delayed.
The Good:
He made it through security without incident, and he has all day to get to his destination.

The Bad:
Claire was quite distressed when we left Daddy at the airport.
The Good:
Daddy has already called to talk to her, and she talked his ear off.

The Bad:
This coming week will be challenging, and we’ll miss Daddy.
The Good:
Next Friday will seem like the best day ever.

And, speaking of things that are so bad and so good, here is a funny quote from later this morning.

Momma to Claire:
“Stop cleaning the table with your washcloth, and finish your donut!”

P.S. The theme song from The Facts of Life is still in your head, isn’t it? 😉
