Check your local LISThings.'s a list of things that make me sad, each followed by something to be grateful for. (I like to try to end on a good note most of the time.)

1. I got a sunburn last week and I'm starting to peel. However, I have really great memories of the time I had with my daughter at the pool while I was getting the sunburn.

2. I skipped lunch and it's too close to dinner to eat now. However, my husband is taking me out on the town tonight while my daughter sleeps over at my In-Laws. Woo-hoo!

3. My mom has Stage 3 Cancer. However, she is such a young, strong, positive soul that she ends up encouraging me every time I talk with her.

4. I feel like I have a million things to do and I'm too overwhelmed to do them. However, I know my daughter won't be this little forever and it will get easier as time goes on and she starts I will just enjoy every minute of her childhood.

5. My step-son is now 13 and it's hard to watch him make mistakes. However, he really is a good kid at heart and I believe he will always learn from the mistakes that he makes.

6. I miss my far-away family. However, I'm glad that I'm an independent and capable woman.

Okay...that's enough for today. Lists are fun. More to come later.

Thanks, lydia and ainslie. I can see lists becoming a regular yet random feature on my blog.

Ainslie, does anyone ever refer to you as Ainsley Jarvis? (It's from one of my favorite movies.)
