Prositivity Let's try to be positive about Providence today. (I took a Sudafed Nighttime last night, and it kicked my ass. Hence, I will be out of character today.)
Good things: The rose bushes in our yard are blooming this year. Apparently they were "award winning" until the people who lived here before us moved in (before them, it was a little old lady who was a hell of a gardener). We thought they were pretty much done for, but they're bouncing back. We need to trim them better, though.
