Hey, thanks!

So we've finished our Thanksgiving dinner, the dishes are done and we are taking the ever important digestion break before we dig into our pie. As I sit here, I think of all the reasons I am thankful this year. And because everything I do, think or say seems to end up in my blog, I'm going to share with you.

1. I'm thankful for my family. Not just my own little family of Mr. Dog, the kids, and the dogs, but my mom, dad and sister too. More than family, we are friends. I enjoy spending time with them and moving to Seattle to close the distance gap a bit more was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

2. I'm thankful for my fantastic husband. Who else would put up with my eccentricities and love me even when I'm being petulant and moody? Who else would get my insane jokes, and awesome dancing? Who else could know when I wanted advice and when I just needed a hug? Mr. Dog, marrying you was one of the wisest things this very wise woman has ever done.

3. I'm thankful for friendships that will last a lifetime. Stan, Auntie Chihuahua and Maria, you are my rock. As close as blood relatives, I will always look to you for support and know that whenever we get together it will be just like picking up where we left off last time.

4. I'm thankful for my job. And not just because I have one, which most people would say is blessing enough in this economy, but because it is a job I love. My boss has offered me tons of encouragement and support. I get to do things that I care about, for a company that makes great products and employs amazing people. I understand some of them even have wives who are brilliant enough to enjoy my blog. Isn't that awesome?

5. I'm thankful for the health of my friends and family. I've recently heard so many stories about people suffering serious illness or injuries it reminds me just how lucky we are. (knocks wood)

6. I'm thankful for our the outcome of the Presidential election. You all knew who I was rooting for, and I'm so happy the majority of voters felt the same way. I'm hoping his leadership, and his message of hope, inclusion and responsibility will help restore our country to the position we once held in the eyes of the rest of the world.

7. I'm thankful for TiVo. Really. How else does a mother of small boys get to watch Law and Order SVU?

8. I'm thankful for wine. Do I really need to explain? Red wine, you are a delicious friend. And no, I do not have an inappropriate relationship with this buddy. Please don't plan an intervention, it is unnecessary. I do know my limits.

9. I'm thankful for all of you who read this blog. I'm constantly amazed by the fantastic comments you leave, the support when I'm down and the hilarious stories that make my life seem sane and normal. But especially the comments. Damn I love those.

What are you thankful for?

I am thankful that other people blog besides me, because I love getting peeks into other people's lives. I am thankful that overall I have pretty good health. I am thankful for the good relationship I have with my brother, which helps me to be the #1 person asked to dog-sit, which makes me oh so happy.
