cascarones

136/365

things I told myself today:

it's a gift to have laundry to do
it's a gift to have a body able to do the work laundry requires 
it's a gift to have access to a laundromat where clothes can by washed and dried
it's a gift to have a car that will take me to said laundromat and then back home again
it's a gift 
it's a gift
it's a gift

(I do believe this)
(even if it sounds like I don't)
