My friend Amy left a note on my Facebook page saying that she noticed a trend with everyone's status on there (facebook). Everyone was saying they were thankful for the children and their friends and families.
She wanted to say that she was thankful for tequila (especially when it is mixed in a margarita) and for me because I keep her sane (I keep her from jumping off the Mississippi river bridge) I told her that sounded a whole lot better to me.
Because it is true. We are thankful for our families etc. But, what about those obscure things ? Things that don't make us sound as good. Like tequila? Every day I try to change my side bar - it has a gratitude and a favorite thing. I often list odd things over there and try to mix in the traditional so people don't commit me.
So, today, while I am thankful for things like friends and family, homes and vehicles. I also want to say I am thankful for windsor and beer (taking after Amy), I am thankful for our computer and blogging (duh, no explanation needed there), I am thankful for my bed and naps (YOU know I loved these), I am thankful fo Payless Shoes (I have four kids - nuff said), I am thankful for the fact that hair grows back (unless you are Sage), and weight can be lost (too much pie thank you), I am thankful that none of kids are alike and while I have a hard time with one my hubby clicks best with that child and the child that drives him a bit battier is the one I 'get'. Telephone therapy sessions that are free and better than professional ones, and the friends that give this service to me and those I can help doing the same in return, next, I truly appreciate that the moon and the sun stay where they are suppose to and while the climate may be changing we seem to be adapting, I love that my feet are never cold in my house (man they are cold at my mom's house today- note to self remember slippers next time), I love that my hubby and I are finding our groove finally after the worst dock season ever (always busy - no down time since February), I love thigh high socks (not nylons) from Target and am thankful for how fun they make me feel (not an easy task these days).
I could go on and on with these obscure gratitudes- but I am sure I have put you half asleep and since the turkey is working on the other half I will stop.
But, I will ask - what odd thing are you thankful for? Something off the wall. It can make you sound selfish or insane - the odder the better. Tell me tell me please .......

Fido - the zombie spoof film I saw last Friday. I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time!

I am Thankful for my computer and my in-laws who are sooooo much better than my own family, they keep me sane (hmm who could that be hehe).
Can I be thankful for bob?
I'm thankful for free podcasts, and a dog to walk to give me time to enjoy them (Cheers, Adam!)
I am thankful for spit valves, free online porn, and compression garments, oh and 18 yo Scotch or at least people who make good Scotch who can at least keep their hands off it for 18 years cuz I couldnt
I am thankful that at least part of my family still thinks it is important to spend time with the "old folks". After you get to the age we are, you just never know how many Thanksgivings etc. you will have left. I know I could get hit by a car but it is much more likely I would have a heart attack, stroke etc., as some of my friends are. I am also thankful for Jules who always helps me out with running early in the morning to pick up deals for me to give to my family for Christmas. This is a big thing for me. I am half done shopping now and all I had to do was cook, write a check and enjoy my grandchildren. What a tough day I had!!!! Thanks you Jules. Love you more!
