This gives me a great way to edit complaints enough to pretend to see bright spots, even though it feels like a lazy cheat because I have already done this.

The Denver sun shines bright today giving me yet another wicked ass headache.

I will never be done with the IRS, the very day following the news that I won my IRS audit I got more bad news from my accountant about 2014.

The Denver Public Schools system is screening a great documentary about racism, that left me feeling hopeless and even more part of the problem.

My small cat frolics in the school playground inciting rage in my neighbors and fear amongst the gentlest of Kindergartners.

I have a third picky and nervous buyer for my fucking fix and flip that is cute as a button but even more of a financial disaster and a total time suck. I have almost no hope that this sale will go through and even if it does it will not make me whole.

We have incredible vacations planned that make it impossible for us to spend a dime on anything else because of the ridiculous amount of money from my fix and flip that we will be losing.

The endless talk, tour and terror over middle school finally seems relevant as I join the miserable masses dreading the lack of good school choices for my son.

Meditation provides perspective on my place on our planet but doesn’t do anything at all to protect our planet.

I read a compelling article about Elon Musk and the incredible technology behind his push to populate Mars, brought on by the near certainty of an extinction level event.

There is nothing left to complain about once I realize we are headed towards species extinction. 

I hope this didn’t bring you into my well of whiney existential angst, and you beat the odds and manage to have a great day.
