I Appreciate. Because If I Don’t, I’ll Need Stronger Happy Pills.

While I was putting the air pockets into my bra this morning, I began to reflect on exactly what I have to appreciate.

I appreciate the air pockets in my bra that lift and separate my relatively itty bitties, because at least I have boobies and I don’t have a cup size larger than my head.

I appreciate the dog who leaves poo nuggets in my living room every day, because at least she’s not shooting diarrhea out of her ass.

I appreciate my 5-year-old who spends over 15 minutes every morning crying at her dresser deciding which clothes she’s going to wear to school, because at least she’s not 14. Yet.

I appreciate my husband who forgets to load the dishwasher from the previous night’s dinner, because at least I have a husband who kisses me goodbye.

I appreciate my 7-year-old who begs for new books every day costing me upwards of $50 a month in reading material, because at least she’ll someday make enough money being a genius to put me in a nice old folks home.

I appreciate the tiny pimples popping up in and around my nose that are a result of blowing my nose for the last 4 days, because at least I have a nose.

Oh. NOW I get the comment thingy. Apparently the whole page didn’t load first time here. Under normal circumstances, i would offer to help out with that whole “lift and separate” thing (Lou, the Human Brassiere), but I like Patrick, and I’d rather him not try to beat me up the first time he sees me.

Patrick. Dishes, man!! *I* do dishes. And I’m no where near as good a husband as you are.

I think my cat has been talking to your dog, because he’s starting to do the same thing. I was just telling my friend how lucky I was that he only leaves one nugget of poop instead of a puddle of runs.

Wow! This is an awesome post! I needed to read a post like this especially after a week that included but was not limited to a broken sump pump switch (which we caught before the whole basement was under water) and a run in with my least favorite person (at a school event in which my shy child sang on stage with her kindergarten class with confidence).

Thanks for helping me look on the bright side!

I wish I needed air pockets in my bra.

I am thankful for breast reduction surgery.

Hasn’t your daughter heard of the library? I used to check out 15-20 books at a time when I was her age, and then read them over three days and go back until I’d read everything in the children’s library. Then I moved to the adult library and that’s when I became twisted.

She has a school library where get gets 2-4 books a week. But she has very irresponsible parents who ended up with $50 worth of late fees over the summer checking books out from the county library.

I appreciate my body because who’d want to be a head on a cart? I just wish I could deflate certain parts of it when necessary.

I have air pockets in my bra. Or at least a big space between the cups and my skin.
They’re like clappers in a bell.
