Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Things I am thankful for:

My kids—They drive me insane, but when I wake up to the sound of them chasing each other through the house, giggling so hard that they can barely breathe, I realize I’m right where I’m supposed to be (well, that and the fact that THE LIST has worked wonders on our morning routine).

My husband—It’s cheesy, but we really do complete each other. When my sanity’s on the brink, he pulls me right back away from the ledge, reminding me that I am not a horrible mother and fixing whatever it is that seems to be driving me insane. I never thought that Happily Ever After was real until I started living it out. And of course there are spats and times when I want to strangle him, but when he hugs me and tells me it’s all going to be OK, I have to agree. (yeah, that’s enough sap outta me)

My job—I work for an incredibly family-friendly company. It has allowed me to work part time, basically setting my own hours. Which means that I get to spend more time with my kids. While this is probably a major contributor to the fact that I am in a constant state of frustration with them, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My house—I hate it, and if someone came today and offered to buy it, I would cry many, many tears of joy. But I am thankful that I have a house. There are so many people in this world that have to struggle even for that, let alone a huge feast of turkey, potatoes, bread and pies.

My friends—Both online and in person, I have the GREATEST set of friends on this planet. Y’all are a bunch of smart, funny, snarky, entertaining people, and I’m grateful to have the chance to meet you every day on the interweb.

So what are you thankful for?

I'm thankful for pretty much the same things. I feel the same way about my house, but am so lucky just to have a house.

I'm thankful for supportive family and friends. I couldn't do it without them!

I'm grateful for my life (and the new sugarland album, and Itunes, and my patient boyfriend, and my friends, and the city and my credit cards, and many other things).

But what I'm really grateful for now is internet access, the M60 bus to Laguardia and that my friend is cooking tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving, Glam!

I'm thankful for everything that is my house. Food in the fridge, an in-tune piano, my family, my heavenly bed, tivo... you know, everything that a dorm room isn't!

Hope you had a great one! :)
