The raisins make me grateful

Dorothy Parker has this great saying about how sometimes things aren't just terrible, they're fancy terrible. They're terrible with raisins in it.

Well, this week has been full of raisins. Not big, bad terrible raisins, just annoying raisins. But rather than sit here and detail all the wrinkles and grossness of the stupid things that have stuck in my craw this week, I'm going to try something new and different. I'm going to list all of the things for which I'm grateful.

1. No one in the family has a trach

2. We can afford groceries and  - importantly – booze

3. I discovered Draw Something

4. I have friends who will play Draw Something with me

5. My kids are hilarious

6. The wildflowers are beautifully in bloom EVERYWHERE

7. It is not 9 bajillion degrees outside

8. It is not -9 bajillion degrees outside

11. My computer is not broken

12. The dog has stopped pissing on all the toys
