A Few of My (Least) Favorite Things
Since it isn't quite Thanksgiving Week, I'm going to get some things out of my system that I am NOT thankful for. We'll see if a more appropriate list manifests itself next week.
I am not thankful for the cold. Last year I was pregnant & didn't even notice it. This year I'm freezing to death & it's only November.
I am not thankful for loose skin. I'm lotioning up so much, I feel like Buffalo Bill: "It puts the lotion on the skin." I may only be 30, but my skin looks 70.
I am not thankful for potty issues & sleep issues at the same time. These kids are ganging up on us!
I am not thankful for slow & steady. I know that anything worth accomplishing isn't easy, but can't shedding this weight be hard & FAST?
I am not thankful for caffeine. If I can't have it, no one should.
I am not thankful for Swiffers, SpotBots, Roombas, microwaves, dishwashers or washing machines. I would rather just not have to ever cook or clean.
I am not thankful for Krispy Kreme, nachos or Costco cupcakes. All who make or distribute said items might as well be pushing heroin or cocaine as far as I am concerned.
I am not thankful for whining. Dogs or kids, it drives me nuts either way.
I am not thankful for raindrops on roses OR whiskers on kittens. For that matter, I am not thankful for bright copper kettles--but I suppose I do love warm woolen mittens. I guess life's not all bad.
