Shall we play the "Glad Game" ??? Let's see... where to start, where to start??? Okay. I'm ready.
*I'm glad the nightmare I had before waking yesterday morning was just a bad dream.
*I'm glad I didn't really go to the mall because I hate going to the mall.
*I'm glad I didn't lose the expensive outfit I bought along with the credit card I used.
*I'm glad that if I had done so that my husband would not have treated me the way he did in my dream, at least I hope not.
*I'm glad that it only took 8 hours to shake the feelings from that dream. I guess it could have taken longer.
*I'm glad that we did not have to reschedule Double Shot's dentist appointment and pay a missed appointment fee after he sauntered out to the car 15 minutes later than he should have.
*I'm glad I didn't get a speeding ticket.
*I'm glad that I won't be yelling at Double Shot today because the couple sentences I yelled yesterday have made that impossible.
*I'm glad Mr. Macchiato and I got to go out with some friends for dinner and that we had a very nice time.
*I'm glad that when we got home and discovered Double Shot had done nothing we told him to while we were gone and that the new DVR we got last week wasn't working and that Mr. Macchiato's beloved Deadliest Catch, American Idol and the season finally of Fringe weren't recorded that my face did not turn purple and my head didn't spin around like Mr. Macchiato's did.
*I'm glad that Mr. Macchiato can yell so loud. It might come in handy someday if we get stranded on a hike in the mountains and we need people from 3 different states to come rescue us.
*I'm glad that Mr. Macchiato looked up Double Shot's schoolwork online and found that he had more missing assignments and that he was marked absent in study hall during the time he was supposed to be meeting with his Chemistry teacher for help... which he didn't do either... that he was the one jumping up and down and pulling out his hair instead of me.
*I'm glad that only one of the retainers he got less than two months ago is broken in half because he leaves them lying all over the place.
*I'm glad that I was able to sleep deeply for two hours before Mr. Macchiato woke me up at 12:30 am when he finally came to bed and that he wanted to talk and pray.
*I'm glad that he was able to fall asleep quickly and get busy snoring loudly because it meant he was really asleep.
*I'm glad that Frappy's bed is still here and that I could go crawl into it.
*I'm glad Mr. Macchiato was able to fall back asleep after he got up to go looking for me and that he didn't try to tell me he wouldn't snore if I came back to bed. I've heard that one too many times before.
*I'm glad that I had lots of time to think when I couldn't fall back asleep.
*I'm glad that the neighbors behind us are so cool that they let their teenage/young adult kids party on a Tuesday night... and hang out on their deck laughing and having a good time... until 4 AM. I'm sure they have an excellent relationship and that those kids are going to make mighty fine adults who are courteous and mindful of their surroundings and how what they do may affect others.
*I'm glad that I got four hours of sleep in the form of two 2 hour power naps.
*I'm glad that the Dish dude is here trying to fix whatever is wrong and that he must be doing a very thorough job because he's been here for two hours already.
*I'm glad that even though I think about killing Paco, I don't.
*I'm glad that I can sit here in my dumpy frumpy sweats I wear when I paint with greasy hair, smelly pits, no make up and my old glasses that are chipped, while a strange man is in my house... and blog about it.
*I'm glad you read this far.
OY! OY! OY! Can you believe I left out a bunch of stuff? I did. I wish this guy would hurry it on up. I. want. to. take. a. shower. I would like to tell the guy to just pack it all up and take it away. I'd like to go live in a cave by a river, actually.
I am going to have a positive attitude. I am going to count my many blessings. I am going to find contentment and joy in spite of my circumstances. I am. How long do you think this is gonna take? Cause, ya know, I'm a instant gratification junkie.
