I’ve never been so grateful before, so it’s only fitting that this Thanksgiving I celebrate the change and happiness the past year has brought. I am thankful for living in an apartment in the wilderness, even if I’m surrounded by flying squirrels, bats and snakes. I’m thankful for living with my boyfriend who has given me a second chance that I never thought was possible. I’m thankful for my neurotic dog who has finally stopped pooping and peeing on my bed at 2am. I’m thankful for chocolate milk and Cheez-its. I’m thankful for tights and ugly dresses. I’m thankful for toothpaste, because God only knows I brush my teeth more than any other person on the planet apart from my mother. I’m thankful for traveling on a plane for the first time in my life this year. I’m thankful for my family and how supportive they have been (Mom, don’t take offense to being listed after the toothpaste…I really love toothpaste!). I’m thankful for my friends for being my friends when there are so many other sane-ish people out there to choose from. I’m also thankful for lucking out with the best second fam on the planet and being so welcomed within Pete’s family (I’m also thankful for Mr. Schuster’s epic potato salad, now that I think about it). I’m thankful for being employed and having co-workers who accept me despite my random vulgar remarks. I could go on and on, but I’ll spare you.
*CliffsNotes version: I’m super thankful. Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to read it. Now go eat some stuffing and socialize with your family (and by socialize with your family I mean watch football)!
