    What is a + in your life at the moment and what is a - ?

    And for every negative, you HAVE to think of a positive :D It'sd very cathartic.

    Here are mine

    - OH is working abroad for at least 2 - 3 weeks starting next Saturday :(
    + While he's away I have full access to his bank account :twisted:
    - Can't sleep
    + ummmm.... I'm doing more housework ;)
    - AOL dial-up is doing my nut!
    + I have complained about it to DH sufficiently and he is now trying to sort out BT broadband (again!)
    - I have a dentist appointment this Tuesday and as it's a top tooth, the dentist tips the chair so that my head is lower than my feet, meaning I feel sick after 5 mins, not to mention the fact that I hate dentists!! Oh and I might be having my root canal work done, but I didn't ask so I'm not sure what's happening :lol:
    + There must be a positive..... ummm hopefully it will sort my tooth out :)

    That's it for now

    - my house isn't finished yet
    + the bits that are are far nicer and more impressive than I ever imagined

    - I'm not pregnant yet
    + so I get to settle longer in my job before I have to leave for a while

    - I haven't seen DS since he got xbox live
    + it meant we went wireless and can use the laptop :cheer:

    - I couldn't be bothered to do all the ironing today
    + DH has promised me a flash iron with the reservoir thing next month after I explained how much it hurts to iron (takes ages with my crappy one)

    lol I don't think you're supposed to turn every good thing into a negative, I think it's supposed to be the other way round ;)
