A Break in the Clouds
It may be a gray day. There may be some kind of wet stuff falling from the sky. I might even be stuck at home because my car won't start. There's precious little food in the house (I've got Kraft Dinner oozing from the pores that aren't clogged with peanut butter and jelly) and we don't have any batteries for the remote.
The electricity is still on. I don't have to shovel rain. We are NOT out of vodka. I'm capable of walking to the television to change the channels. My feet aren't cold. The Dancer drove the other spawn to school so I'm alone. Our plumbing still works. I have a tube of Chapstick next to me. I am not required to attend any extracurricular activities tonight. I'm still losing weight. The coffee was excellent today. I was able to pull out some dvds that I hadn't watched since last spring and watching them didn't stir up things like anger flashbacks or a desire to fire off a hate email to my Dementor. I've only had to clean up one pile of cat yak today. Every time someone on MSNBC says "Stimulus Package," I take a shot of vodka and the punditocracy is all about stimulating packages today. And then there's this - more fun things from blogpals!
I'm telling you, if I can get our printer to work (it is apparently in cahoots with the idiot car today), those nifty things from Summer will keep me busy for hours. Now I need a Miss Lemon so I can pretend they are having paperdoll, um, ...... tea.
