What a Difference a Day Makes.

Every blogger in the world is obligated to write a post today about the things that they are thankful for.  It's in the rules.  If you have a blog and you haven't written yours yet, I'm sorry to tell you that you are WAY behind.  Anyway, here's mine.

Today, I'm thankful to have a husband who, despite some sort of affliction that prevents him from closing a dresser drawer completely, really GETS me.  He understands that often the best way to help me is to keep the beer coming and to stay out of my way.

Today, I'm thankful that zj's new tattoo suits him perfectly.  And I'm thankful for neighbors who usually mind their own business but who get involved in my life when they need to, like today.  After the Thanksgiving festivities were over and zj was banished to his (upstairs) room for a nap, our neighbor across the street saw him OPEN THE WINDOW, REMOVE THE SCREEN, AND GO OUT ON THE ROOF.  The neighbor quickly got involved and a disaster was averted.

I am also thankful that no authorities were contacted regarding the aforementioned incident.

I am thankful for moments like this:

And I am thankful that the turkey was edible.

I'm thankful for my family who came to eat my un-burned turkey with me today, and I'm thankful that I have a job that helps keep my boys in Huggiesand X-Men.  Tomorrow when I have to go to work at 5am to fend off caffeine-starved, coupon crazy shoppers looking for doorbuster deals, I will probably not be very thankful, so take this one while you can.

I'm thankful for good friends who make me laugh, and I'm thankful that I'm a creative cook because the fridge is FULL of leftovers.

Mostly though, I am thankful that I live in the life I live in, with the people I love.

And I get to do that every day of the year.

  1. You have much to be thankful for. I feel for your husband's drawer issue. I share a similar affliction with cabinet doors.
