Okay, time to write again. First let me start by saying Thanksgiving was awesome! My Mother-in-law had it at her house, there was a windstorm going on but fortunately the power did not go off until just after the turkey had been carved. Whew…disaster averted. No fights broke out, no one was sick, and we got to eat by candlelight. I call that very successful.
During the family get together, it was determined that instead of buying presents for ourselves, we will adopt a needy family. This sounds better than stressing about what to get a relative that already has everything. Christmas dinner is at my house, which means we will probably play a game too ;)
If you haven’t, you really should check out the movie just below the blog. Thanks to Karen for the idea…she has a funny can-can of her family on her blog herehttp://www.kbmcqueen.blogspot.com/
Let me start this blog by saying that I have no agenda. I do not think the world is out to get me; I believe we are dealt a hand in life and it is up to us to make the best of it. Hopefully along the way we can make this mud ball a nicer place to live. So, in the spirit of the holiday I am going to post my list of things I am thankful for.
1. Family- special shout out to my first husband Alan, and our boys. 2. My dog Max. 3. Goofy smiles brought on by silly objects like rubber chickens and devil ducks. 4. Choir...I am so grateful I did not have to audition! Whew. 5. My reliable recycled car. 6. Joe, my brother in law who is an MP in Iraq... 7. Higher education and the feeling of accomplishment that comes with being on the chancellor's list 8. The Internet. 9. A Capella music. 10. Chocolate and Imitrex.
List of things I take for granted but am just as thankful for:
God, Food, Shelter, extended Family, Friends, the color Green, and my Health.
