This is kind of a tough day to blog. Wouldn’t you rather be outside at a cookout or something instead of inside at the computer? In respect to your holiday plans, I’ll keep this very short today…
But how does one blog about the 4th?
Shall I be all patriotic? I could, but that might lead to a discussion of politics and that’s not what this blog is about.
I could go in to a history lesson, but that, too, is fraught with possible pitfalls.
I could mention that it’s my DG’s first 4th as a US citizen, but I don’t think he’s all that hyped over the significance (it takes an awful lot to get DG hyped about anything—the boy is so laid-back he’s about to fall over.).
I know of people who use this holiday to celebrate their independence from something—a bad marriage, a bad habit, whatever—but I’m very happy in my co-dependence with DG, Counselor Shelley and the Playfriends.
But the fireworks really make me want to celebrate something personal as well… I’d hate to see them go to waste. I guess I’ll count my blessings, celebrate my recent successes, and hope for more good things to come this year.
Are you celebrating something special today? How?
