Tonight’s entry is a quickie, and these are all things I am profoundly grateful for:
- My sweet, smart husband who not only helped me figure out the first and crucial chapter of the novel I am working on–I’ve written so much, but so far have had no first chapter–but also drove to Buddy’s convenience store tonight at 10 pm to get me a beer, just because I was really craving one.
- My wickedly funny mother who spent 30 minutes on the phone with me today, reading me old recipes from her small town cookbooks. Recipes I used to make fun of (chicken kiev, gelled cucumber salad), but now think sound pretty damn good.
- Living in America with Barack Obama as our president. Thank you, Obama, for rolling back George W. Bush’s power grabs. Man, do I feel better with you in charge.
