girl, you crazy.

to quote the late karen carpenter,
"rainy days and mondays always get me down."

normally i would agree with her.
i mean, in my opinion, anything involving a monday automatically sucks.

"hanging around, nothing to do but frown."
it's already hard enough to bring happiness and smiles into a day of work and school. but on a day of work and school after two days of relaxation and freedom?!?
almost impossible.

... almost.
maybe karen just didn't know that you can make any day a good day.
regardless of the sun not shining & regardless of the monday blues.
it's all about perspective.

today i am thankful for:
sleeping in past 8
kisses from my sweet husband before we parted ways
scoring an exceptional parking spot
my college job that does not involve cleaning toilets
a dishwasher
justin bieber's album "believe"
eyes and ears to fully enjoy the rain
