I ain't gonna complain no mo

Corporations are having layoffs. Small businesses go under everyday. Some have to hold two or three jobs just to make the minimum payments on their bills every month.

Even some of my blogosphere friends have endured job loss within just the past few months.

And I am complaining about not receiving a bonus?

Looking at the big picture, I guess I'm doing pretty good.

You could always start sneezing on people, randomly...

Nah, that's rude. I have been sneezing on keyboards, though.

Just kidding. :)

Oh, Hell. Who DOESN'T do that?

(Actually, I've started using rubber bands and paper airplanes to pester the other faculty members. Hi, I'm in third grade again, and it's never too late for a happy childhood!)

What an enlightened attitude! Good for you! It really is all in your outlook. Recently, we came into an unexpected $1,000, and then immediately had an $800 vet bill for a horse. At first, Alex was fussing about how we "just get a little extra money, and then *poof* it's gone!" Then after a little while, I said, "Thank goodness we had the money to pay that unexpected expense." Hmmm.

yep, I guess it is all about attitude. At least we have a nice home to live in, some creature comforts, and so what if we still haven't gone camping in 5 years? We'll get there again someday.

CP - I don't wanna grow up - I'm a Toy R Us kid! Shoot spit balls! That'll really skeeve them out!

Belinda - It's amazing how there really is a reason and meaning for everything that happens in this universe. The reason for not getting my bonus? Still working on that.

Rowan - and that's how I look at it. I got a nice home, my family, a decent job, ... hell, I have a lot more than over half the people in the US alone.
