2. That I''ve lost 10 pounds.
3. That I have a great husband and family.
4. That I have a really good job.

Right now (lateish in the day) it's about 68 I think, but the past few days were quite hot
keeping in mind that it had been very "cold" (low 60s/high 50s) before then so I think I have no tolerance anymore!

NEW IDEA

Put your hates/dislikes first, and your loves/likes SECOND.

Always good to end on an uplifting, positive note

NEW sparkly?! As in new-new... As in... besides your gorgeous E-ring??? Have I missed a big jewelry project of yours??
But if you''re referencing your e-ring... well, I love that beauty, too

I remember that feeling so well. It was AMAZING. (Well, minus the freaking out/calling my "co-counsel" crying/going over the whole thing 58 times looking for citation errors that morning.)

Good luck with your outlines and finals!

You were totally spying on me this morning, weren''t you?!

Co-counsel had a habit of underlining the comas after the case names in his citations. Guess who fixed ''em all 20 min before turn-in time?? ...Not that my cites are anything to write home about

Aaack, thinking about underlining commas makes me hyperventilate a little bit! If you join law review, you will reach a new level of citation/punctuation/editing neurosis
.

P.S. 50 pages of property reading is just plain mean.

Kittybean & Pilsn - The first thing I thought was OF COURSE you don''t underline commas in citations! Ever! And not think it was weird to consider that important. That''s what law review does for you even 30 years later. Plus, make you a much better writer. With the minutiae comes the important stuff.

It should be ''makes'' you a much better writer. Ack! I hate grammar errors even in my postings. That''s another gift from law review.

Me too. They make me actually feel a little sick. (And crazy, actually.)

Can I add the giant zit that been forming on my forehead all day to my hate list? I think I can actually feel it getting bigger. Ew.

2. That I''ve lost 10 pounds.

3. That I have a great husband and family.

4. That I have a really good job.

5. That my dog is always happy and ready to go.


HATING:

1. That my husband''s cancer has returned.

2. That my mother has Alzheimer''s.

3. That I lost 5 of those pounds from a nasty bout of food poisoning.

4. That I fainted from dehydration due to the food poisoning and fell in the worst possible spot - tile floor next to wood stairs. Major ouch.


I think those 4 are enough. I''d rather concentrate on the 5 good ones.

So So So sorry to hear about your four "hates" dear. I''ve just sent up a prayer for your DH and your Mother.

As for the food poisoning and fall: please recover quickly and drink plenty of fluids. Pedialyte saved my life the last time I had FP.

Take care of yourself so you can be strong for DH & DM.
