Friday's Fave Five

It's been a bit of a tough week here and my brain's not happy this morning (read: I am not capable of thinking my way out of a paper bag).

But, in the interest of showing up and participating, I offer these five favorite things from the week that is just about to expire:

1. my dog Hank - he makes me laugh every day. I've got a blog post about him waiting in my drafts folder -- I'll post it either this weekend or on Monday.

2. this headline from our local paper made me laugh -- and not for the first time has something like this been published. In Pocatello, the Holy Spirit is quite accomplished. (Holy Spirit is a local Catholic school, which I'm sure you've figured out by now.)

3. my husband's preliminary calculations show that we will probably get a tax refund this year instead of having to pay (last year the monthly deduction for my state income tax had been miscalculated, so we owed a chunk of change on April 15).

4. not having to travel this weekend. Given that my brain seems to have taken a holiday, I'm not sure I'd make it to my destination. I'll be very happy to stay home and watch the NFL playoffs.

5. a doctor's office that will bring you right in if you really need to see the doctor TODAY.

Thanks go to Susanne at Living to Tell for hosting this weekly meme.

That headline is so funny!

Our weekend right now is plan free and we are looking forward to watching the playoffs as well. It's nice together time and I usually knit while I'm watching. Good times...

Hank is a fabulous name for a dog! Our dog's name is Mabel. :)

A tax return would be nice! We have not even started to consider taxes yet.

My pet makes me laugh too, pets are good for distraction and comic relief.

Pets do bring joy don't they?

The Holy Spirit title cracked me right up.

I love those tax refunds.
