And for me, that means tomorrow is Friday. Thursday is my Friday. I shouldn’t look forward to it the way I do because it inevitably leaves me with the feeling that life is stuck in one of those giant revolving doors that move people in an out of large spaces.
So I remind myself to take a breath, slow my mind down, and appreciate the day.
There’s quite a bit to appreciate.
There isn’t 12 feet of snow on the ground.
I don’t have to scrape ice off my driveway or windshield.
I can wear a single layer to work instead of R-30 insulation.
Best Buy finally delivered a new television and the Geek Squad will be here in a couple of days to put it back on the wall.
And American Idol will keep us riveted to the television a few hours a week for a while.
What more could I ask for?
Okay, so it would be great if Hilary and Obama would stop bickering at one another. And Mitt Romney would take over the hosting of Jeopardy! and give Alex Trebek a rest.
Then, life would be perfect.
