However, it's Thanksgiving here in the States, and I do have a few things for which I am thankful:
My incredible, sweet, generous, funny and thoughtful friends. I love all of you and nothing would please me more than to meet each and every one of you in person. Maybe my New Years resolution should be to play the lottery till I win. Then I can fly all of you to a central meeting place so that we can all hang out. And I'll have enough money leftover for bail, for we will, no doubt, get arrested for disorderly conduct at some point. lol
My hubby and our marriage. We've had our ups and downs, but 20 years later, we still love each other and still laugh hysterically on a daily basis. I'm thankful that we haven't turned on each other like so many couples have during this economic crisis.
My family, especially my cousins. I'm lucky to have grown up in such a large Italian family with so many cousins!!
My job and boss. I don't like the clients, but I like the work. And my boss is such a great guy. It's hard to believe that I'm closing in on 9 years working for Steve. My commute isn't too bad and I'm thankful that I don't have to work in Seattle.
My fuzzy little four-legged children who also make me laugh every day with their silly antics. There's nothing quite like cuddling with a doggie. There's also nothing quite like the joyful and enthusiastic reception I get when I come home from work.
I'm thankful that our house isn't upside down and our cars are paid for. I see people's financial information every day and I'm grateful that we are not in that kind of debt. I would be catatonic.
I'm also grateful to the psychiatrist I saw back in 1989, who encouraged me to follow my heart and quit my job at Channel 56 so that I could live out my dream of living in San Francisco. That man saved my life. I wish I could remember his name b/c I would love to drop him a line to say thanks.
Then we have my many celebrity crushes. I am thankful that all these hot guys exist for my viewing pleasure: Vincent, Dean, Vincent, Pyper, Vincent, Christopher....did I mention Vincent?
Finally, I'm thankful for my craft habit. I don't think I could possibly survive the crushing stress without that outlet.
I hope everyone in the States has a wonderful Thanksgiving, full of food, football and good company!
