Thankful (And not the Kelly Clarkson CD)

My favorite holiday is here. I love Thanksgiving and not just because we've vowed never to travel. It has become OUR holiday; the one in which Larry & I celebrate the way we want to. Every Thanksgiving morning begins the same way: sleeping until 8:30, a canister of 8 Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls (I personally eat 6 of them and then get to lick the frosting container) and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Truthfully, I watch it for the Broadway performances from 9-10 AND because I think Matt Lauer is totally hot, but I've learned to apprecaite other aspects of the programming.

This year, the rules changed a little bit. We got up at 6:50 ("Daddy...I'm awake"), I only got 5 sweet rolls ("What's that? Can I have one?"), but we still watched the parade. ("I want to watch Rescue Heroes." "No, Daddy has a differnt hero we're watching this morning.") Regardless, still many reasons to be thankful.

Other reasons to be thankful:
  • I don't work at Imagine any more.
  • Coffee makers that work.
  • I got to go to Hawaii this year...on the company dime!
  • I ran my first (and prolly) last 10K.
  • I become a BlogFather.
  • I love my new job.
  • My parents won't ever be moving again.
  • Francine's awesome pumpkin ice cream cake...and the green bean casserole.
  • I'm still in my 30's this holiday.
  • Anthony Logistics facial toner (so I'll still look in my 30's next year).
  • I have wonderful friends.
  • I'm going to go back to school this next year.
  • Trader Joe's moved in across from my building.
  • My partner and son are healthy and happy.
Here's wishing you and your family the same blessings I've been fortunate to receive this year. Enjoy your day to appreciate what you're most thankful for.

I'm so glad to hear you had a happy turkey day! Mine wasn't that great. Typical. I got drunk. The one day of year I drink to deal with the family and their neuroses!
