The mountains have an amazing cloudy swirl about them today. It's raining. I love the rain. Euphoria. And seeing the tops of the mountains poking out over the white haze is really amazing. Frankly, my life doesn't offer a whole lot to complain about and even if it did, I generally find these things amusing. Things take us new places. The asshole my son has for English is teaching him to value his work independently of what others think. The bully kids are teaching him to stand up for himself and to lead by example. A stressful call to another parent ends up building a better friendship. Life and all the crap that goes with it is GOOD. Real good.
And I've been feeling down trying to come up with something witty to say about things that suck. First off, I'm not witty. Second, I've a nice long list for sure, but really, the things on the list don't suck enough to warrant all the energy required to write a post. The best ones are things I like to suck. I'll write those up, because they make me happy... But my point is that I'm not going to stick to this "suck it" theme. If something comes up that's worth ripping on about (like that freaking gardener last week), I'll be sure to let you know, but otherwise... I'll just get back to enjoying the clouds, conversation, and observations here in this strange place.... or maybe it's just me.
p.s. happy birthday Mom!
