I’m blaming my bad moods on the rain. It’s been so dark and dreary around here for the last week. I need the sun!
Yesterday, I got off of work unexpectedly early. I spent the afternoon checking out a local guitar shop and an antique/lamp shop. This was awesome because I really love lamps! I even went back with a lamp from my great-grandmother and he told me all about it, and how I can get it repaired. So cool.
In an attempt to focus on the positive, since all of my recent thoughts are extremely negative, here are some things that I’m thankful for. I tried to post this with the expected Thanksgiving “thankful for __” list, but my draft didn’t save and the computer deleted it… And, here we go.
I have a job
My bills are paid
I have food to eat
I have a bed to sleep in
My family loves me
I have a family

Lots of things that I have….

That I’m ending this list because 50 is plenty, but I could continue.
Congratulations on reading the list. Extra points to you if you read the entire thing. Now, back to apartment searching…
