gobble, gobble

It's Thanksgiving, so I think I will list some things I am thankful for, in no particular order.

  1. My new Marie Antoinette Soundtrack CD that came in the mail yesterday
  2. The pretty in pink iPod Nano with which I can listen to the new CD. The iPod is only the best thing ever. After flush toilets, of course.
  3. Sleeping past 6:30 today. Yea!
  4. Maya watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade-- damn near made me cry.
  5. My family still sleeping at 9:59am (except Maya)
  6. Wayne is off all weekend!
  7. The rain. Everyone else hates it. I embrace it, love and am so grateful for it. Only because *I* didn't get flooded.
  8. My mommy.
  9. My daddy.
  10. My wonderful husband. He really is the best. I love him the mostest.
  11. My kids, even when they annoy me and make me cry.
  12. My home, which I am grateful for every day. I never thought I would be a home owner.
  13. My van. I thought I would be driving my damn '95 Tercel forever.
  14. My sister, even though we have distanced.
  15. My brother. He's always the same :-)
  16. My grandma-- cancer free!
  17. My grandpa-- getting better!
  18. My niece and nephew-- good kids going through some tough adjustments.
  19. My maternal cousins, even though I'm not so fond of them right now.
  20. My paternal cousins: Jesse, Julia and Nathan. I miss them. I hope they are well.
  21. My aunts and uncles-- those who are living (Donald, Debbie, Janet) and those who are part of my memories (Dan, Rita).
  22. My paternal grandparents, who my children never got to know, but who are such a part of my childhood memories. It makes me sad that my kids will never see what a true K***** Thanksgiving is like. "AI-LEEN!" Bring on the Gallo, baby.
  23. My new tile floor, which proved that Wayne and I can work together in stressful situations and not want to kill each other. Yes, we may even be able to survive The Amazing Race. (I just spoiled myself when I looked up that link...dammit, Chos!)
  24. Swearing, which really helps us be able to work together without killing each other. "ASSHOLE" goes a long way in expressing how one feels about another without having to resort to physical violence.
Okay, I have ton and tons of reasons to be thankful on this day. My life is better than I ever imagined it would be. I'm happy, healthy and have lots of people whom I love and who love me (hopefully I got that who and whom right).

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I wish everyone a nice hot meal with people who give half a damn about you.

(btw, the Marie Antoinette CD, which I finally finished listening to, is too awesome!!)
