Today my mind is totally focused on preparing for Turkey Day so this is going to be a slap dash sort of post. I figured the easiest, most holiday appropriate thing to do would be to a few things for which I’m thankful. I won’t bore you with the whole ‘loving family, great friends, good health’ mumbo jumbo. Not that they aren’t at the top of the list, they’re just at the top of every mom’s list. Bor-ing.
So here are a few more personal ones….
I am thankful for bacon, Lindt chocolate truffles, and Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch. I am also thankful for Fruit Punch Crystal Light, without which I could not eat my bacon, truffles and PBCC.
I am thankful for Spanx and slimming black clothes. A girl can’t drink diet fruit punch all the time, you know.
I am thankful for sunshine.
I am thankful my youngest son still thinks I am cool….Wait. Hold on a sec…I have just been informed that my youngest son no longer thinks I’m cool. (sigh)
I am thankful that Conan O’Brien is finally back on the air. I love that over-grown leprechaun. I am also thankful for my DVR, as two of my other favorite shows -- ‘The Colbert Report’ and one I refuse to name because it’s slightly raunchy and might tarnish my image -- are on during the same time. What madness!
I am thankful for vitamins, so when my husband is gone and I only have the strength to serve tater tots and pizza rolls, I at least know my kids are getting their daily B12 requirement.
I am thankful for books. Short and silly or monstrosities filled with meaning, Calgon’s got nothing on them when it comes to taking me away. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, take a look below. File under 'need to know pop culture for mom's generation.')
I am thankful for all of you. Seriously. Group hug!
Anyway, I’m sure I’ve got more rattling around in my brain, but I’m out of time so I’m turning it over to you. Tell me, beside the standard answers, what are some of the things for which you are thankful? Inquiring minds want to know!
