Sigh, sign, or SING!

While it's easy to be disheartened by Obama's continued approval of GMOs (three major crops in the past month!), it's even easier to join the number of people who are still rallying behind organics! In the end, it sugars down to one thing: do you sigh and give up, or sign and go on?

I've been thinking it's time for a written addition to the ongoing Gratitudes List, so here are my latest entries:

#3,586,427*: Making up silly, impromptu songs about daily life, and seeing how long I can keep up a rhyme scheme.
~ Singing said songs, adding a refrain, and remembering it in time for the next chorus!
~ Dance moves. Broadway style.
~ Adding harmonies, call & response, or round/barbershop quartet/doo-wop styles, and getting people to join in.
~ Turning the kitchen into a giant stage until the resident teenager threatens to emancipate herself early or the phone rings.
~ Catching Scott and the kids singing the same songs later.

* - give or take. I may have lost count.

It's a rough life, but somebody has to do it. What are you grateful for?
