Today I am grateful that it is not a law that I write a blog about being grateful every day. It was sucking the fun out of writing a blog. I was beginning to approach blogging like a chore, a drudge, a (*gasp*) job. Enough’s enough! This is supposed to be fun. No more self-imposed blogging every day. I’ll write when I have something to say, whether it’s interesting or not.
But I do have a month’s worth of things for which I am grateful. I’ll just list them instead of writing about each:
- Family and friends
- Chocolate soy milk
- Elastic waist bands
- Digital libraries
- Harry Potter books
- air conditioning
- hugs from my husband
Actually, I’m having a hard time coming up with my list. I think that I’m distracted by hunger because I just started to list “Cinnamon Life Cereal”….
I’ve had several bad days recently–no sleep, a cold, work-related stress. I have a picture that perfectly expresses my mood. It’s a picture of my roommate from freshman year in college, Grace* (*not her real name). She was in the middle of what we called an “all-weeker” (instead of an “all-nighter”) during finals week. I’ve never sympathized with Grace more than this past week. I’ve wanted to give the whole world the bird.
