  1. Me and my family are in good health.
  2. Summer has been really temperate so far.
  3. Allergy season was really very mild this year.
  4. My garden is growing…gonna have fresh veggies soon!
  5. No leaks in the roof. *fingers crossed*
  6. Indoor plumbing.
  7. A freezer that keeps ice cream rock hard. ;)
  8. I have normal neighbors with working fences.
  9. I am no longer the only one who knows how to refill the toilet paper.
  10. I have an ice maker.

These are 10 Reasons why I am grateful, in spite of my circumstances.

  1. Because it is quietly urban in the middle of the city.
  2. Because it smells “fresh” every time I walk in.
  3. Because people in there actually parent their kids (i.e. no screaming house-apes running amuck).
  4. Because of the free samples (and they’re not shy about giving seconds or thirds!) and the free coffee!
  5. Because I can find unique items there that no one else carries.
  6. Because of their cute mini-carts.
  7. Because even though 2 Buck Chuck is now 3 Buck Chuck, it’s still awesome…and now, they offer a Shiraz!
  8. Because it’s not a super giant place – it’s cozy.
  9. Because in that place, everyone is smiling…all the time.
  10. Because today, one of the staff saw me put my hand to my forehead while I scrunched up my eyebrow and she came over and asked me, “Headache or itch?”  When I got past my confusion long enough to say, “Oh, headache.” She said, “Wait right here…I’ll get you a couple of Advil and a cup of water.”  And SHE DID!  I almost cried. :)

These are 10 reasons why Trader Joe’s is my favorite grocery store.  Ever.

Remember the rules?  No lookie at the linkie until you’ve reached the end.  ;)

Because…

1.    It might make me think…but what it makes me think is “boy…I bet they’re cold”.
2.    Also, I can’t help thinking about words like “crevices” and “paint” and “lodged” and “for days”.
3.    I can’t tell if it’s four guys and two girls or five guys and one girl…and really, what’s the point if someone like me is hung up on something that stupid.
4.    “Performance Art” should not be code for “get (mostly) nekkid”.
5.    Butt cheeks should not be used to portray facial cheeks.
6.    Because of the disturbing grin on the guy with the mustache (why is he the only guy with his hands behind him?  wait…I really don’t want to know).
7.    That might be Patrick Wilson standing on the left side of mustache guy.  Dude…so not a good career move if it is.
8.    Because I’m afraid this is real art and I’m the only one who doesn’t quite “get it”.
9.    Because it’s a bit over-the-top even for hardcore Obama-ites.
10. Because the creepy factor is overriding the cool factor by a margin of 1,348,132  to 1.

These are 10 reasons why I’m a little put off by this piece of performace art (link to article).

And now, a deep thought by Jack Handy:  “Sometimes life seems like a dream, especially when I look down and see that I forgot to put on my pants”

1. the smell.
2. the screaming children running riot all over the place.
3. the fact that they single handedly wiped out the local mom & pop shops.
4. the crappy products all “Made in China”
5. the smell.
6. the parking lot that is always littered with McDonald’s wrappers and dirty diapers.
7. did I mention the smell?
8. the rude employees.
9. it freakin’ REAKS in there!
10. that fact that whatever it is I think I need, they never have it. It is the biggest store filled with nothing I ever needed and everything I never wanted.

10 reasons why I hate Walmart.

And now, a Deep thought by Jack Handy:    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The difference between a man and a boy is, a boy wants to grow up to be a fireman, but a man wants to grow up to be a giant monster fireman.”

  1. they think they’re better than everyone else – everywhere (they remember what it was like to be worshipped…they crave to be worshipped still).
  2. they hold grudges – forEVER!
  3. they observe people seemingly with “no-emotion” (<<<not my observation, but a good one nonetheless! TY J!) and that’s just creepy!
  4. they appear in manymanymany Stephen King novels and never in a good light.
  5. they’re sneaky.
  6. they are postmortem predators – *shudder* (when they watch you sleep, it’s not because they adore you, they’re checking to see if you’re still breathing).
  7. they hate traditional baths and yet always seem to be clean…hmmmm…
  8. they don’t fetch.
  9. they actually prefer the taste of their butts to the food we provide for them (ungrateful brats).
  10. they never miss an opportunity to “love us” by threading themselves around and through our legs as we try to walk across the bloody room!

 These are just 10 Reasons why I really don’t care for CATS!

 And now, a Deep Thought by Jack Handy:  “It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.”

Because…

  1. his eyes are the most amazing mixture of blue and green I’ve ever seen.

  2. the sound of his voice sends shivers down my spine (in a very good way *wink*). 

  3. he encourages me to pursue my dreams. 
  4. he is the definition of bravery (doesn’t let anything get in his way).

  5. his hands are rough and gentle at the same time. 

  6. he does more than just listen, he really hears me.

  7. he is an amazing father.

  8. his heart breaks when he thinks of our girls growing up.

  9. he remembers what my favourite colour is.

  10. he makes me coffee in the morning exactly the way I like it.

Though there are many more, these are just 10 Reasons why I love my Husband. *grin*
