Friday, what does that even mean?

1. for semi sleeping in & feeling semi rested

2. for not staying curled into a ball in bed

3. for not being answerable to any human being this week (other than the babysitting gig & the parent teacher conference I have been able to just rot)

4. for writing these lists - i do feel answerable to that on some level

5. for my honesty in being able to say (well, type) I feel sucky & not at all positive today

6. for my ability to fly in the face of the very heart of these lists by having the chutzpah to post just such a list

Thursday please be a better day

1. grateful to know there are supplements I can give this dog to help calm his noxious self down

2. soo appreciative that daughter checked about whether the landlord still owns the house or not before we paid rent this month (he does so that is a good thing???)

3. grateful the dog drank his warm sleepy time tea, fingers crossed that it helps

4. grateful for having valium & xanax I didn't take before (did you know vets prescribe it for dogs with behavioral issues now?)

what the fuck wed nes day

1. i am grateful for whatever part of my brain did NOT just let the stupid dog jump over the fence and disappear (someone would have JUST called when they found him)

2. i am grateful that when I hauled his ass to the ground from down off of the roof of the storage shed I didn't break his stupid neck

3. i am so grateful my foot only got JUST squished under his weight and that ONE log and that my ankle didn't get twisted or my foot broken

4. I am sooo appreciative of the prepacked bag of ice in the freezer

2. I am grateful for the wonderful friends & community on G+ who came up with the Secret Santa idea & are spreading joy as elves across the community
