I really am. I like it that way. I've frequently considered my personality to be one part Oscar the Grouch, one part Ebenezer Scrooge (in the "leave me alone" way, not the "Hey, look! Money!" way), one part Red Forman (I swear that character is based on my paternal grandfather), and a small sliver of Pollyanna. I think it's the small sliver that keeps me from being completely odious to everyone around me.
However much fun I'm having being this cranky (and I am!), that doesn't make it right. Continuous grumpiness is no way to go through life, dangit. And after running across this blog a few days ago, I feel pretty strongly that I should be letting Pollyanna out every now and then (she would probably enjoy the fresh air).
So, I began keeping a "gratitude list"; it's in the sidebar. One new thing that I'm grateful for every day, from now until my fingers fall off. (I'm sure that my fingers having not fallen off will make it onto the list eventually.) Or perhaps until Gabriel blows his horn.
It doesn't do for someone who is as blessed as me to always be grumpy. Not even for entertainment purposes.
Please share in the comments what you are grateful for today.
