    I love your list! So meaningful. It’s the small things in life, the everyday , that brings me happiness.

    P.S. I can’t read the piss me off list. It’s blurred when blown up. Can you print, make or send me another. I’m so curious Xoxo

    I like your name too, and I can never find those coffee or car wash cards when I need them,someone out there owes me a dozen free cups of coffee and car washes. As for the things that piss u off lust, total classic. My brother recently told me that I should have a list of things that piss me off on my fridge and each day I should write 3 things that pissed me off that day, he thinks that would make me a lot happier than writing 3 things that I’m grateful for. Gee, wonder what he’s getting at….
