I don't want to do favorites today.

I just want to think about how nice it is to have a home, and a job, and a husband with a job.  I am thinking about how even though I don't take advantage of it, I can read any book that I ever wanted to.  I can make anything I ever dreamed of...yes.  That is what I'm thinking about today--the fact that I have everything i "need" and so i get to worry about what to do in my leisure time and silly inventions.
