gratitude-a-thon day 973: gratitude round up


Things I’m grateful for the day before the day before Christmas.c700x420I seriously could marry a white twinkly light. They should have their own department in furniture stores. Couches, chairs, beds, WHITE TWINKLY LIGHTS.  You just can’t be in a bad mood when a small white light is twinkling at you.

My daughter got through her first semester of college! And she did well. Parade!

Nyquil, Mucinex, and Tylenol Cold and Flu are my friends.

I love Van Jones, who I discovered during the election. This is one cool dude with smarts who values values, and knows what’s important. I became a member of his Love Army. You can too.

Paperweights remind me of my mom, who coaxed the bulbs out of hiding every Christmas. They have the best smell (until they don’t and start to smell like pee).


Since I’ve been sick for the critical shopping weeks of Christmas, I did a lot of online gifting this year. Damn, it’s easy, but boy you end up with a lot of boxes.

My dog Riley has been my trusty friend during this ridiculous virus/cold/crud I’ve had. He’s such a loyal and funny companion. He did everything but make me soup.

My boy is home and that just makes me so happy.

Brookline Village just got a Caffe Nero, offering one more super cool way to drink coffee and eat paninis, right around the corner.

This guy! Fucking hilarious. Spot on. Yup, man–hurtles across the clothes.

Grateful for all my fam and my friends. Trite, silly as it seems. I am lucky to have a lot of great people in my life. And I love them all.
