A Thankful Thanksgiving



I have been stressed these past few weeks (yes, I know, nothing unusual) so now that we are finally back from our road trip of fun, I started thinking about Thanksgiving.  In addition to all the thinking I have been doing about what to cook, I have also been thinking about all the things I am thankful for.  So here goes....

I am thankful for:

My three wonderful children

My wonderful husband

Chocolate

DVR - this is truly one of the greatest inventions ever.  I remember the days of trying to program that stupid video tape player..... (yes, I am that old)

That despite having heart failure, and not doing so well at the moment my Mother has been able to be around to get to know her grandchildren and thus necessitate that we all stuff ourselves into the car and drive long periods of time, so we can visit.  It is a bit scary not knowing how much longer she will be with us, but I am very thankful for the time there is.

That my husband cooks the turkey on Thanksgiving

That we are again friends with the egg, and have eggs back in our diet. I can now hopefully make a somewhat decent corn bread, and brownies.  This is of course hopefully - if I have too many "helpers" I have been known to make mistakes.


Coffee

Everyone is healthy.  Beyond our obvious health issues (Grandma, peanut allergy, asthma), everyone is doing well and is healthy and happy.  

Super Epi Pen

The Internet.  What did people do before the Internet???????  And of course broadband Internet connections.  Remember dial up?????

Buster the pug is doing well after his cancer scare.

All you totally cool and awesome people who visit my blog.  Yes, I know there are only like 5 of you, but you guys are great!!!!!
