Good news: I can still fit in my high school prom dresses.
Bad news: I know this because they are all hanging in my closet and must be carted to Goodwill/schlepped to the new house/thrown away.
Good news: I scored a great deal on a good refrigerator with an automatic icemaker.
Bad news: It won’t be delivered until August 6.
Good news: My lawn is receiving lots of free fertilizer.
Bad news: From the many neighborhood dogs who aren’t on leashes during the day.
Good news: It is remarkably easy to balance my checkbook.
Bad news: This is a direct result of having no money in my checking account.
Good news: I’ve never been in such good shape.
Bad news: Because I’ve lifted everything I own at least four times.
Good news: I know how to fix incorrectly attached lawnmower handles, pry up cracked peel and stick tile, and clean paint goofs off baseboards.
Bad news: Figure it out.
There is always something to be thankful for, so I’m focusing on the good news. Hey, if I ever get invited to another prom, I’m SET.
