I’m not impressed with 2013. Not impressed at all.
In the last 6 days, I’ve been the sickest I’ve been in years, Ryan got sick, my grandma got sick, Luna Bell’s even been sluggish. On our way to get more soup last night, Ry and I experienced how vile people can be. And don’t get me started on the taxes removed from my paycheck or where I want to shove the fiscal cliff.
So, it’s done. I’m calling it. Time of death, 8pm, January 6th. Not only can things only go up from here, they are and it’s happening on my watch. You are what you eat and you are what you think so around these parts, the rest of 2013 is about gratitude. Gratitude for stuff that doesn’t suck.
Kate Gives Thanks was one of my blogs to read because I loved seeing from her perspective what she was giving thanks for on any given day. Every single day, Kate gave thanks…and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that 2012 was quite the banner year for her. Gratitude and positivity breeds more of what we want in our lives and now that her year long project is over, the gratitude train has a new destination: JustaChiTownGirl.com.
Every Sunday, giving thanks. 6 days of the year so far. Let’s go.
This week, I’m grateful for:
1. Cool Touch Kleenex
2. My electric tea kettle (boiling water in 90 seconds is no trivial achievement)
3. Parents who always answer their phones to talk to me.
4. Cold wash cloths in the middle of the night
5. Fist bumps instead of hugs or hand holds to express germless affection
6. A sun-lit apartment
