10. Drinking as much caffeinated coffee as possible
9. With cream
8. Taking everything bad for me and putting it in a bowl and eating it
7. With hot fudge
6. Complaining
5. Obsessing
4. Not being grateful that I went to the dermatologist and he said that none of the 1,001 moles I have are of any concern
3. Refusing to take Advil for my headache because I brought it on myself, and I want to suffer as long, and as much, as possible
2. Making a list of all the people on my last nerve
1. And why

I love your sense of humor while in the midst of a FUNK.

:) We're soul sisters.
Last night while at Target waiting for all the various scripts Reilly and I needed filled, I wandered to the ice cream aisle. I bought every kind of Weight Watchers frozen treat they had (I know you're thinking that the Weight Watchers bit negates the ice cream part, but read on). Then went home and sampled. All of them. Then ate a plate of tortilla chips topped with cheese. Then passed out from the muscle relaxers. Then drank A LOT of caffeine this morning...

Number 1: Get thee some Mate and a press pot, like stat. I personally recommend the Rosamonte Espcecial:

Number 2: Get out and walk around. Infuse yourself in the colors and smells around you. If it's raining, stomp in the damn puddles. If it's nighttime, take in the moonlight and the stars.

Number 3: Buy a whole chicken, rub it liberally with olive oil, salt, pepper, tuck some fresh rosemary or sage leaves (or both) under the breast skin or just place in the cavity with a wedge of lemon, and roast at 375 for a little over an hour, basting here and there. Throw in some whole baking potatoes rubbed in a little olive oil on the bottom rack while the chicken cooks. (Don't forget to poke 'em a few times with a fork to avoid explosions.) Great served with a fresh green salad tossed in a tart vinaigrette.

Number 4: As your whole house begins to smell yummy, scan your surroundings and note how many ways you are far luckier and more abundant than many. Note roof over head, warm surroundings, food, clothing, indoor plumbing, circle of friends who not only care, but also get it.

You are abundant. You have everything you need. Always. In perfect time. No accidents.

If that doesn't work, I've got a few cocktail recipes saved up. :)

It's a funky time for a lot of us. Thanks for making me laugh and lightening mine for a moment.

Wow, when you wallow. Might as well make it as bad as you can. All the sweeter to leave behind when you are ready.
