What a difference a day makes

Today on one of the blogs I read, the blogger did a video blog, or a "vlog" if you will, about what she's thankful for this week.  This morning when I read the post, I had a hard time thinking about what I was thankful for. I didn't sleep well again last night, my puppy was acting all kinds of crazy yesterday (turns out his gums hurt because he lost a tooth), and my husband spent endless hours playing video games yesterday which meant I maybe said 3 words to him all night (which he responded to with short grunts.... caveman style).

                                                                             Ok that looks eerily like my Mister...
What a difference a day makes. A puppy who feels better. Coconut greek yogurt (omg you must try it). A husband who, instead of playing video games, cooked a huge Dominican dinner (rice and beans, pollo guisado, salad, and homemade salad dressing). Being able to watch as many college basketball games as I wanted today. Figuring out how to tweek some things on this blog to make it look better. Hearing cheerleaders during one of the college basketball games actually do the cheer "U-G-L-Y, you ain't got no alibi, you ugly, hey, hey, you ugly!" during a foul shot (Congrats, Iowa State cheer squad, you have succeeded at making me giggle like a 5 year old).

So no, I didn't get a job today and I didn't win the lottery, but just enough things went right to make me realize I actually have it pretty good. Even when the puppy is crazy... at least I have a puppy. I waited a long time to get him. And even if I didn't sleep well, at least I didn't have to perform brain surgery today or do something that requires a lot of rest. And you know, sometimes words are overrated. The cavemen seemed to get by just fine with grunts... at least their wives probably never accused them of not listening.

U-G-L-Y....sorry, it was just so funny... maybe you had to be there?
