Normally, I can't stand complaining. I feel like there are so many things to be thankful for, that whining about a predicament is selfish. That said, I feel an overwhelming need to piss & moan - which is odd because things really aren't so bad. My family & I - we have it SO good (there, I'm feeling better already).
Ok, so now I've changed my mind. I'm going to start by getting all of the things that are bothering me off my chest, but then I will follow with all of the things that I'm lucky for or are making me smile:

  • My Grandma is in the hospital. The last time I was in her area, I didn't stop by because I was tired. Someone (who shall remain nameless) has been making me feel very guilty about it ever since. Any other time I would've stopped, but I didn't that day.
  • Grandma Cathy's funeral was Wednesday. It was very emotionally draining.
  • The day of the funeral, I developed a toothache. My dentist says that it will either need a root canal, to be pulled, or it is nothing.
  • My DVD burner won't work with my computer, I have to return it.
  • I'm still getting over the surgery, it's a little scary to know that things weren't working properly & that they wouldn't without the help of a doctor.
  • Randy has Strep. Gracie has the runs.

Sorry to be such a downer, I won't always be such a bummer. This an outlet for me, though. On the plus side, I can't think of anything else worth noting! Here's the good stuff:

  • RANDY & GRACIE, of course!
  • Going to go visit Randy at work tomorrow, watch him be my hero.
  • Ever since I taught her "Eskimo kisses," she has also mastered the art of closed mouth kisses (thank goodness). She doles them out all the time now. I love it.
  • My Grandma is going to be ok. Just a few more days in the hospital, & they'll be able to send her home.
  • Grandma Cathy had a full & great life. I have never in my life known more definitavely that she is happy & in a better place.
  • I can always get dentures. If I lived in another time, I probably would have pulled my teeth out on my own by now.
  • Some day I'll get a new computer. And really, what a silly thing to be obsessing about. There are probably more people than I can count with far worse problems (food, shelter & safety to name a few).
  • I've spent several hours with my dad trying to fix the %$#@ DVD burner.
  • We are so lucky to live in a place where there are trained medical professionals to do what they do.

Thank you, I feel much better. xoxo
