I am not going to go into the “sorry its been so long since I have written” since I seem to lapse every now and then. But know that I am…
One of my oldest and dearest friends Steve (Soo This Is Me) reminded me that I haven’t written in a while and I realize that I loved writing in the blog. But with getting my masters and working, there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. Excuses excuses since I do find time to watch my shows on Hulu and Netflix.
Yesterday, as I stuffed my face with deep fried turkey and sushi (yes it was a fun and modern Thanksgiving meal), I realized that there were so many things to be thankful for. I loved how my five year old nephew kept asking to look at the sliced octopus on the sushi tray. He kept saying that it did not look like an octopus, but he did try a piece (and it ended up in a napkin). He wanted a grilled cheese sandwich and didn’t care much for turkey, potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, or anything else being served. I was thankful that my sister-in-law made her special garlic mashed potatoes (with 8 sticks of butter). I was thankful that all siblings from my side and my sister-in-laws side were able to sit down and share a meal together. I am so very thankful for those things, for my family, who drive me crazy, but who I also can’t live without.
I hope everyone had a wonderful stretchy pants Thanksgiving.
