Thinking Happy Thoughts

I really don't want this to be a sob story...so I've decided to make a list of things I am able to do because I am single, that I take for granted.
  • I don't have to shave my legs for months if I don't want to. This not only saves money, but a heckuva lot of time
  • I always have the covers at night
  • I don't have to argue or compromise with someone about what I'm eating/making for dinner. I can even go OUT to eat if I want to...it's quite liberating
  • I can park where ever I want when I am running errands
  • At night, I can call on my battery operated friends without judgment
  • At night, I can decide NOT to call on my battery operated friends without judgment
  • Aside from BB's clothes (baby boy, even though he's not so baby anymore), all of the laundry I do is MINE, so I only have myself to be irritated with when the clothes pile high and the stains run deep
  • I can watch as much horrible reality television as I want
  • I'm privy to the last scoop of ice cream
  • I can eat as much garlic as I want
I think ten things is a pretty darn good start.

You used to not be able to park where you wanted??

SS+1 said...

so@24 - Not necessarily....I'm talking (more or less) about me wanting to find a spot close to the door, and the Mr. saying "UGH, just PARK already!" :)

So true. My two favorites are eating as much garlic as you want and complete control over the remote.

Garlic and ice cream.. yikes.

megkathleen - AGREED!

Hex - Garlic = Good. Ice Cream = Good. The two mixed together? Probably not so good....haha
