Fortunately, Unfortunately

     There is a great kids' book by Remy Charlip, the title of which is "Fortunately, Unfortunately." The whole book is a series of events in the life of a little boy; good event with bad one following, all through the book. I use it to help kids write with the same pattern.
     Despite the fact that the book is written about a little boy, I know that the author was talking about Jeanne Kraus. I feel as though I am the original dark cloud-silver lining person. My life as of late has followed this pattern beautifully.


Fortunately, I got to sleep in till 7:30 cause my loving husband thought it was Saturday.
Unfortunately, it was Friday and I was late to work.
Fortunately, the school managed without me.
Unfortunately, in my rush to work, I left some important things at home that I needed.
Fortunately, I had a lot of other things to do at work.

Unfortunately, I will have a busy weekend working now.
Fortunately, I have stayed healthy and out of the hospital for 2 weeks now.
Unfortunately, George reminded me that I was told to visit a pulmonologist to check on my lung capacity.
Fortunately, I found a listing for a doctor in my area that takes my insurance.

Unfortunately, his name is Dr. Weiner.   
Fortunately, I have a cute little weiner dog named Maggie.
Unfortunately, I can't help wondering if Congressman Weiner has somehow become certified as a pulmonologist.

LOL. That was fun--so much better than just listing a bunch of random thoughts. I especially love the picture of the dog. =) Thanks for the laugh!

Congressman Wiener will be hailed as the "butt of jokes" (pun intended) for a long time to come.

OMG. That photo was so cute/disturbing.

Fortunately, I too have been to see Dr. Wiener.

Unfortunately, If some weird-looking dude with Brillo pad hair and street clothes starts asking you personal questions, even though he doesn't introduce himself or identify himself as a doctor, you can be sure we have the same Dr. Wiener.
