John Kovalic rightly points out that there's gloom and misery aplenty out there, and asks us for three reasons to be cheerful. I've answered and mutated it.

My reasons to be cheerful:

1) My girl. She's outgrown everything that fit her this spring, she's growing every day into a fine young lady who cracks me up, comforts me, frustrates me, challenges me and still loves me.

2) My [edit: he prefers MAN]. Eight years together and every bit my perfect match. He makes me laugh every day and eats whatever I'm cooking. Gush, gush, gush.

3) TiVo. I know, I know, it's quite a jump to go from beloved family to electronic device, but it's true. TiVo means I never miss the Daily Show, no matter how early I fall asleep these days.

Things I'm looking forward to:

1) The Seattle Arts & Lecture Series, Alexander McCall Smith lecture. Jenny turned me onto this series last year and I'm buying myself tickets to this lecture for my birthday.

2) Christmas. I get to go home for Christmas this year. It's been too long since I've seen my dad, I'm really looking forward to spending time with family.

3) Fall Cleaning. Most people do spring cleaning after a long winter. Around here we do fall cleaning after a too-busy summer of travel, suitcases flung around, piles of clothes or papers from one trip set aside in preparation for the next trip. Now that we're home for a spell, I can reclaim my house again.
