And since that last post contained more than enough whining, complaining, and negativity to carry us all through the calendar year, I will follow it up with something that displays my lightheartedness and gratitude for all things good in the world of work...
I am thankful for financial planners who assume, due to the nature of my husband's business and education, that we have a lot of money. I am grateful that financial planners typically prefer to discuss matters over a lunch that they pay for--especially good Chinese food.
I am also thankful for the State of Maine's copy machine maintenance guy. Someday I kind of hope that his clothes fall off by accident.
I enjoy my biweekly paycheck.
I'm happy to work behind a church that holds a once weekly aerobic class for super old men--totally makes me smile when I walk by the window on Tuesdays.
I'm grateful that I work close enough to home that I can go home to pee when the bathroom is so unbelievable stinky.
I like to fax love notes to my husband from my office to his.
See? I'm not such a bad person after all!
