It's Friday, which means it's time to Celebrate the Small Things with VikLit!
I have a few things to celebrate this week.
First of all, my youngest Lyle was playing on the playground when he fell off a ladder. I had been momentarily distracted by my oldest getting himself into trouble, so I failed to avert the accident. A fall of five feet onto the rocks below is never fun, and when a two year old does it, it looks quite scary. He cried, but fortunately he was fine. He didn't even have any bumps or bruises to speak of, and he was running around and playing again within a few minutes. I still felt guilty, but let's face it. Kids will have accidents in spite of our best efforts to prevent them. I'm just celebrating the fact that my kids are safe and healthy.
We also had a tornado warning here. While my husband was at work, my kids and I got to spend a half an hour in the basement. No tornado actually touched down, so I'm celebrating that. With the horrific tornado that tore through Oklahoma this week, there's no escaping the realization of how bad tornadoes can be.
My nephew Asher turns one on Saturday, so that's another thing to be happy about.
Saturday is also Towel Day. To celebrate the life and works of Douglas Adams, I'm hosting the Towel Day Blogfest. I starts today, and runs through the end of the day on Monday. Anyone participating need only post once during that time, and the post can be pretty much anything to do with Douglas Adams and his work. I'll be posting on Saturday, so feel free to stop by and check out my tribute.
What would you like to celebrate?
