Top 10 Things I Will Remember This Memorial Day

10.  A time when I was able to leave the house and get into the car in less than two hours.

9.  My once legendary tolerance.

8.  Sleep.

7.  A day when something other than the Fresh Beat Band blared from my car stereo.

6.  Our 14-year-old Pillsbury Doughboy cookie jar, who recently was beheaded in a tragic housecleaning accident:

R.I.P. Doughboy.

5. My pre-pregnancy smaller feet.

4.  The freedom to watch whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, on TV.

3.  My two-seat red convertible.

2.  The ability to walk across my living room without stepping on a dozen toys.

1.  Walking onto a plane and into restaurants…without people giving me the hairy eyeball.

And, in all seriousness, the brave men and women we have lost in military service.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
