I've often suspected that I have Attention Deficit Disorder, but I think now it must be true. All week long my head has been whipping from side to side, from politics to writing to reading to soccer to the school auction to shopping to working out to laundry avalanche prevention and back again. It's crazy.
So I'm looking forward to this long weekend and the time it (conceivably) offers to find my bearings. Meanwhile, I am thankful for the following things:
1. Barack Obama's acceptance speech (not even the atrocious Brooks & Dunn song they chose to play when he was finished could poke a pin in the balloon of my American pride).
2. My friend's hilarious soliloquy about the overall ineffectiveness of Spanx.
3. Risa's ability to apologize when she knows she's wrong. Very, very, very wrong.
4. Vida's jaunty leadership style.
5. Lea's good manners. "Best manners in the house," says the spousal unit.
6. The Full Bloom ladies.
7. The love my parents bear my children.
8. Date night conversation with the SU.
9. The abundance of flattering shirts at Anthropologie.
And..I would have to say...
10. Trader's Joe's Crunchy Green Beans.
