being able to breathe. anyone who has known me for more than two years probably remembers the winter i spent unable to breathe properly. in retrospect, it was probably a mix of stress and left over bronchial scarring due to the never ending colds i kept getting. but, i spent nearly three months unable to properly gulp air. or feel like i had gulped enough air to not pass out. and you know what doesn’t help not breathing – worrying about not breathing.
i just remembered that time of my life this morning. and while there’s a lot of stress and craziness right now (damn knitting), i can breathe.
other things i’m grateful for:
netflix streaming, nick hornby books, the musical rent, water, good christmas music, people getting me gluten free muffins for the office holiday breakfast
OHHH and then I guess I should throw in a mention of what today’s favorite christmas song might be. and, really, it’s an awesome song. if a christmas song can also be pro-union and all about why collective bargaining agreements are awesome – then it’s a christmas song for me.
the song is elf’s lament by the barenaked ladies. i’m not a big BNL fan, but this song is just too much fun. “hand the fat man a beverage and we’ll show him that we have leverage.”
sadly, i’m at work. and this computer is not running the most up to date browser. and that means i can’t embed a video for you. but hopefully this link will work and it’s a good video. if it’s not, i’ll try to correct it later.
