Today has been one of those days.
Left work early.
Dealt with plumbing issues at home.
Doctored on sick little girl and sick wife.
Made an ER trip.
Now I’m sitting here – everyone else is asleep, and I thought I’d have a little blogging therapy. Our oldest little girl seems to have some sort of virus and we simply got worried about her, so we decided to take her to the ER – by this point everything else was closed. Turned out everything was fine – just gotta let it run it’s course.
As I was walking out, I was admiring the weather and thinking I’d rather be fishing right now. I was even thinking about it on the ride home. I’ll admit I’ve been doing more fishing lately than I’ve done in the last 10 years and I’ve really been enjoying myself, but that’s a topic for another day!
Then it hit me – no, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else right now. I’m getting to (try) take care of things at my house for my family, getting to take care of my daughter while she is sick as well as my wife while it appears she is getting sick. Sure, I get huffy and flustered at dealing with clogged toilets and trying to decide whether we need to make a trip to the ER, but this is where I belong and there’s no place I’d rather be.
Oh, and by the way, you guessed it – stomach virus + plumbing troubles = bad, bad combination!
