One of my favorite holidays, because it's one of the few days of the year that I can get my whole family to sit down at one table with lots of good food, and not kill each other in the process. It's also one of the few days that I can bring myself to cook anything.
However, this year will see me doing little, as I've been fighting a cold all week to no avail. Trying to decide who gave it to me - my daughter or the Bosslady - is futile. The shit's going around, and its one thing that I'm not thankful for.
I am thankful for the bounty of food that we are going to consume as a singular, ravenous horde in about six hours or so.
I am thankful for the family that I get to spend the day with - my Mother and D and his mother, my daughter and Das Roommate.
I am thankful that my brother landed safe and sound yesterday afternoon from his first skydiving expidition.
I am thankful for the Friends I've made here, sticking around through the long, strange trip this has been, and is.
I am thankful for my health - yah, I've got a cold, but I'm a hundred times better now than I was this time a year ago.
There's a metric ass-ton of things that I'm really thankful for (my new credit card included!) but I think I'm going to head to bed, curl up beneath the blankets, and hope that my head clears soon.
