Good: Went to the fireworks last night with two of the kids. Staked out our place early. It was so fun.
Bad: Sarah-Grace was sick and couldn't go.
Good: Brought the van just in case it was buggy. It wasn't really at all.
Bad: When the fireworks ended the car wouldn't start. Living in the heart of a small town is murder to a battery.
Good: Got a great friend who always bails me out of stupid situations like this one, who works about a hundred meters away from where my van is.
Bad: He is in Pembroke today.
Good: My good friend Archbishop Prendergast is visiting today around lunchtime.
Bad: I have a sink full of dishes, and since he's coming I can't leave them.
Good: Starbucks has just announced free limitless Wi-Fi at its Canadian locations.
Bad: The nearest Starbucks to me is 200 kms away: Ottawa to the East, Peterborough to the South-West.
Good: The weather is changing. It's warming up to 24 today. Should be beautiful.
Bad: It'll be 29 degrees tomorrow.
Good: Anne-Marie let me sleep in today.
Bad: Anne-Marie let me sleep in today so I'm behind already.
Good: Anne-Marie is making a lovely lunch for the Archbishop.
Bad: Again, more dishes.
