Gobble Gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving! Whether you ate turkey or brisket, I hope it was tasty. And I hope it was full of thanks. Because, after all, that is what this holiday is all about. Charlie - he said he was thankful for turkey and then didn't even eat any. I, for one, have tons to be thankful for. Like family. Not the family I was born into (except you, Dad), because, well, talk about dysfunction-palooza. No, I'm talking about those people who actually act like family. Like my husband and kids. Now that's a family. Not a day goes by that doesn't include showers of "I love you's". And like friends. I have one close friend and she's as much a sister as I could have. My husband has a few very good friends. Everyone should have friends like these.

While those are all good things to be thankful for, there are some other things for which I am thankful this year. Like diapers. Could you imagine what it would be like if diapers did not exist? The reason this made my list is because we are down to our last few diapers and if we run out, I am not quite sure what we would do. I am also thankful for the nick jr. website. There is nothing else in this world that can quiet Charlie's otherwise rambunctious, hyperactive self. After a long day, that silence is music to my ears.

Time to go sleep off the turkey.

I ate so much that my belly STILL hurts. I'm thankful that Amy decides to include me in these little rants.

Yes, tons of thinks to be thankful about...but interestingly enough, my thanks also extend to these who had showed me the things the way they should not be...after all (and I'm quoting here from the Xerox that Mr O'Hara has in his cube):

"19.- It is disease that makes health pleasant, hunger that makes fullness good, and weariness that makes rest sweet."

Me :)
