I am uncharacteristically in a ‘bad’ mood. I woke up at 3:45 a.m. with a banger of a headache; my husband has the flu and is coughing up a storm (I sure hope I don’t catch it), and when I made my sacred morning cup of coffee and sat down at the dining room table to stare out into space and enjoy the first rush of the day, my foot slid into a pile of cat vomit.
After I cleaned it up, brought my husband yet another box of tissues, I cozied up to my laptop to read my emails and Glory Be! Beliefnet was asking me “How Optimistic Are You?” I thought, “Okay, Beliefnet! You want to see how happy, optimistic and cheery I can be in the face of cat vomit??? (et al) You are On!”
