Sunday’s top five cures for a crazy case of the blues.
5. A rousing spring collegiate field hockey tournament in the cold, crappy, misty rain. The weather was miserable, but the games were spectacular. I’ve decided that Sassy and I get along famously when she is 200 yards away and brandishing a wicked field hockey stick.
4. A heart-warming message from an old friend who successfully kicked my ass. (“Quit your whining you crazy #*$&%, you know you’re awesome,” is basically what he said.) And thanks to those of you who emailed me and commented with basically the same message. It was (crystal) clear that I needed to take the advice I dish out at SCHOOL. (“This is not preschool- there’s no whining HERE.”)
3. Discovering the “Raw Humor” station on the Free Sirius radio channel in my leased car and laughing for MOST of the three-hour drive home. (Oh Lord how I’m still chuckling…)
2. Stumbling upon a HUGE basket of laundry inside my front door, and a gorgeous but bitchy girl asleep on my bed. (I managed to sneak in a cuddle before I so rudely woke her up.)
Number 1? Remembering that really, when all is said and done, a woman who has loyal friends and family really is the richest girl in town. (Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s a cliché. But it’s a damn good one.)
