As vomit-inducing as it is, it's preferable to the maelstrom I usually have going on in my mind at any given moment.
Some things that have given me pause and reminded me how little I have to complain about:
//Making cheesecake from scratch for a friend's birthday with my husband...and having it come out perfectly.
Anyone wanna come over?
//Finally being able to justify drinking hot cocoa with a wee bit of peppermint schnapps.
(See the schnapps?)
//Making the perfect Christmas cards on Zazzle. I know I already bought the matryoshka cards, but these were just too good to pass up. Seriously, you guys. They will earn their own post once I get them and send them out, they are that good.
//Hearing my husband say, "I'm not going to do homework tonight. You know why?! I just want one night this week to sit and hang out with my wife, just the two of us."
//The fact that I have food in my refrigerator, money in my bank account, potable water in my faucet, kerosene in my heater and a roof over my head.
Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful start to your week. Only three more weeks until...Christmas week...so four weeks I guess. Damn.
