What I am thankful for

In honor of Thanksgiving, I thought I would list all the things I thank God for, in no particular order after the first three, off the top of my head.

Happy Turkey Day!

  • My family (both my little family of three and my "original" family plus their spouses and especially my nieces and nephews)
  • My and my family's health (Jordan's 85th cold of the year notwithstanding)
  • My friends
  • The roof over my head that we can still afford to pay for
  • Food to eat
  • Cars that run and only one car payment
  • That Brian and I both still have our jobs
  • My obsession with money (that has kept us from spending what we don't have)
  • Having a flexible job
  • Jordan's school
  • My church, the choir, Fr. John
  • Penn State in the Rose Bowl
  • The Steelers at the top of their division
  • Celebrating a birthday lunch with friends every year at Mad Mex
  • Happy hour with friends
  • Just knowing I can go back to the gym next year
  • Having gained only 5 pounds in the last few months despite non-stop eating
  • Sweat pants and sweat shirts
  • The ability to give money to charity
  • Drew Brees as my fantasy football team quarterback
  • That Brian has not yet strangled Sadie
  • Our new HD flat-screen TV
  • The return of 24
  • Good beer
  • The chance to see my family in NC for Thanksgiving
  • Hope and optimism

I'm thankful for many of those same things. Never know when one of 'em might be yanked out from under you like a rug. Congrats on the apple tasting trophy and on making your kid smoke-phobic. ; )
Have a great holiday!

I have to add two more things I am thankful for:
- that Jordan, my mom, and I made it to and from NC safely
- that the police officer who pulled me over for going 70 in a 55mph zone in NC (I really thought the speed limit was 70) decided to give me only a warning.

In that respect as well as being with my family, it was one of the best Thanksgivings.

My first and hopefully my last biposy (or I would rather be at the beach)

I'm not really worried.
