Oh, admit it

You miss me when I'm not here.

The truth is, I miss being here. My brain has been full of thoughts these last few months. The election made me so crazy I couldn't even write about it.

Someone told me that everyone should think of a gratitude statement for each day in November. I was slow to get started, but I came up with a list I'm thankful for.

First of all, today is World Toilet Day. That should be a pretty big deal, but aside from CNN, it has been mostly ignored by mainstream media. If you want to know what it is and why it matters, click here.

I am thankful for toilets. Not just for toilets, but for toilets that function well and for good water pressure and for sewage systems that work without a glitch. Amen.

I'm thankful for 
  • corrective lenses, 
  • modern dentistry, 
  • antibiotics,
  • gas stoves,
  • extra-firm mattresses, 
  • unscented lotion, 
  • Breathe Right Nasal Strips, 
  • 27-gear Campagnolo derailleurs, 
  • cinnamon flavored toothpaste, 
  • Coolmax fabric, 
  • Kleenex, 
  • supportive insoles, 
  • Nike Dri-Fit socks, 
  • albuterol, 
  • books, 
  • low VOC paint
  • tampons
  • adult formula Clearasil, 
  • Advil, 
  • Xanax, 
  • SADD lights, 
  • 49-strand jewelry wire, 
  • birth control pills, 
  • the Jeep Liberty, 
  • Tronex pliers, 
  • red wine, 
  • cheese,
  • sun, 
  • calculators, 
  • traffic lights, 
  • Q-tips, 
  • wheeled luggage, 
  • self-adhesive stamps, 
  • Costco,  
  • olives,
  • Polartec fleece,
  • pedicures
  • hardwood floors,
  • clean water,
  • And the automatic transmission.
 This is not an exhaustive list by any means.

It sucks being a girl

My vajay-jay hurts. I've been battling this problem for awhile. I haven't been to the doctor because there's a very good chance there is no infection, no anomaly. I know the difference. It's probably the return of pelvic pain syndrome. I try to ignore it, but damn. Ow. My vajay-jay is not happy.

TMI? Probably, but it's my blog so I don't care.
