A blind uncle is better than no uncle.
We've all heard it. We've all said it. And we've all preached it.
It's a great thing to be grateful for what you have, even greater to realize it, appreciate it, and not take it for granted.
To sound like a big fat cliche, appreciate the little things life has to offer, because when it's gone, you just might be screwed
Life is fantastic when you come to those conclusions and you want to dance and sing like no ones watching.
Last week while driving home from work, I realized that I took windshield wipers for granted. Yes, windshield wipers. My brother is a genius and decided to take one of my crappy ones off and not buy me another one. He told me to go and get it myself and he would put it on for me. I am an even bigger genius than he, and decided I wanted to be Mrs. Cheap and not get it until I absolutely needed it and I would get it whenever.
The next day, it rained cats and dogs.
It was horrible.
And the entire ride to work and from work was unbelievably annoying because of the scratching sound that the non-windshield wiper thingy kept making. It even made a scratch on the windshield front window whatchamacallit.(I really cant think of the name for it)
When I got home that same day, my mom wasn't home. I could sense it right when I walked into the front door
Therefore, there was nothing to eat. And so I decided I would boil myself an egg.
Boiling an egg is harder than it looks. Even harder, when mom isn't around.
And currently my thumb hurts. Like real bad. Who wouldve thought you use the thumb as much as you do. I didnt realize it until this happened and I got a purple/blue-ish bruise on it.
This must be how CC's entire hand feels.
And hangers are God send. Especially plastic ones. Treat them like gold.
Lastly, as crappy as I look when I go to work, and as sad as it is that I can't wear high heels, and as annoying as it is that I always wear my glasses as opposed to my contacts these days to work, and as much as I dread it sometimes, and as ridiculous as I may sound when I teach, at least I have a job.
And these days, not a whole lot of people can say that, huh?
