Old-Fashioned

Patriotic

It’s been a long time since I wrote an Up/Down or +/- list.  I miss writing them!  I do love lists, and I always find that the good stuff outweighs the bad on an Up/Down list.

I’m still getting back into the swing of things this week.  Writing a few shorter posts while I’m settling into post-vacation life is a nice way to organize my thoughts.  And there’s so much good stuff to look forward to in the next few weeks: Thanksgiving! my birthday! cool-weather layers!  Cheers to November and all the fun it brings.

Without further ado, my list!  This is the Hurray/Not So Much version of +/-.

Hurray!

* The smell of roasted squash and pan-fried quesadillas lingering after dinner on a Thursday night.

* San Antonio, after much anticipation.

* Thinking about turning 30 this month and not being afraid.

* Catching up on the blogs I read devotedly.

* Getting excited for Thanksgiving-inspired cooking.  It’s practically National Food Month, y’all!

* Pears.  Dammit, I love pears!

Not So Much…

* Junk mail!  I hate junk mail!  It is the bane of my existence.

* Fretting about what to do with my finances.  I hate money chores.  I wish I could delegate this task to a husband, though I realize that it’s better to be knowledgeable about your money, even if it’s knowledge that is reluctantly obtained.

* Kristen Stewart’s acting.  She is the worst actress I’ve seen on-screen in a long, long time.  Though I will add that I started watching Twilight: Eclipse last night, and so far this movie seems far more interesting than the first two movies.  The acting is a little better, and there’s some good tension in the storyline.

What’s on your +/- list today?  And happy weekend to everyone.

Yay for San Antonio and for birthdays! I will restrain myself and simply say that Eclipse was far better than Twilight and New Moon, but that is kind of like saying that one missing button is better than 5 and 6 missing buttons.

Hee hee! Your Twilight comment made me laugh--it's so true. At least Jacob is pretty fun to watch on-screen. Robert Pattinson/Edward pains me.
