good news, bad news: the moving edition

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.
