No More Whining

My last few posts have been pretty whiny, so I thought I would make an effort to be a little more positive by stealing this idea from Zoot. Instead of (justifiably) complaining about things that suck, I am going to focus on the things in my life that rock. I plan to revisit this topic from time to time as I am inspired and/or need to be reminded that I have a great life. Here is a start of my embarrassment of riches:
  • My kids. They make me crazy sometimes, but I love them better than air. They are so smart and funny and amazing. If I didn't have the stretch marks and sagging boobs to prove it, I might not believe they came from me.
  • My husband. We are just like Dharma and Greg, only my Greg is a pseudo-redneck outdoorsman. Who knew they were keeping the good guys in the hunting department? Differences aside, he is my best friend and can always make me laugh. He loves me literally through thick or thin. He is the best.
  • My family. My parents set a great example for marriage and child rearing. My sisters are amazing. Smart and successful. Wow. I wish I could be them. Z and Q can't get enough of my sister who lives in Ginormousville. And I am excited to be headed out to sunny CA to see the other for my birthday!
  • My in-laws. Jokes aside, I have the best. in-laws. ever. My mom-in-law will drive the 100 miles from her house to Small Town at the drop of a hat. They make sure that T and I have plenty of date nights and help to keep our relationship strong.
  • My dogs. We are one dog shy of being weird dog people, but there is nothing like a three dog salute when you walk through the door. I love every slobbery, inadequately house trained hair on their little (and big) dog bodies.
  • Grey's Anatomy. 'Nuff said.
  • Okay, not enough. I lurve that the fall TV season is finally starting! Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Private Practice, Pushing Daisies. I have something like 65 shows Tivo'd. Shameful, yet fabulous!
  • After many difficulties, my BFF and her husband are adopting a baby girl. I am so excited for her. She's going to be a great mom. Welcome to the club, Chica!
  • My neighbors. They are the best, best, best. They watch our house when we are gone - which is often - and they have a son, Z, who is the same age as my Z. They are betrothed. They do not have a choice. Up with arranged marriages!
  • Viet Namese imperial rolls. The holy grail of restaurant food: deeelicious and very, very healthy. Also, I met T for the first time at Mai's in Ginormousville at BFF Chica's birthday party.
  • Lexi. She was the greatest cat on the planet. Of all time. She's gone now, but I was lucky to have her in my life for 16 years.

Wow! That's a lot of great stuff - and I have only scratched the surface. It's good to be me. What's great in your life?

PS - I am leaving bright and early for the ranch tomorrow, so I won't be posting until next Tuesday when I get back from the land of No Havum Technology.
