I decided to make a list of what I’m thankful for.
Tom—for defending his country and being proud to stand up for it. And yeah, he still doesn’t seem to grasp the point of a laundry basket, but I am thankful that he speaks car so he can take care of mine when he gets back.
Tommy—for being an all around cool kid and not letting having Aspergers hold him back. And yeah, he may talk about his butt and ask inappropriate questions about his boy bits, but I am thankful that he hasn’t asked me about the hair ‘down there’ for two weeks now.
Natalie—for not being afraid to speak her mind. If she’s pissed, well, she’s going to say something. And yeah, maybe the fact that she has to see the bathroom of every place we go gets old but I’m thankful that at least she’s out of diapers.
John Krasinksi—for being nice to look at. And for having a sense of humor. Many of the Hollywood types do not. And yeah, he might be married, but then again, so am I. Plus, Tom practically drowns himself with his drool when he spots Megan Fox, so it’s all good.
Chocolate—for being my friend when I’m overly stressed. And yeah, Dr. Phil would say that I shouldn’t medicate myself with food but frankly, Dr. Phil can kiss my pale ass.
Nick Jr—for giving me a few minutes of peace. And yeah, a lot of the shows drive me crazy (what is up with those Yo Gabba Gabba thingies, really?) but I’ll take the crazy for five minutes of quiet.
Cranberry Sauce—wait, oops, I’m not thankful for this at all. It makes me gag, which is odd, seeing as I love cranberry juice.
Black Friday--I've always shopped it BUT not at 3 AM. I'm doing that tomorrow. So wish me luck, pray that I don't get trampled on or my glasses tossed off, because if that happens, I'll be nearly blind. I mean, I'll still be shopping, but I'll be in the corner and not know it...(and no, the kids won't be with me, they will be at Amanda's house with her husband while we battle the crowds..)
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
And if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving today, have a wonderful Thursday then.
