Happy Thanksgiving!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving (and part of our Thanksgiving week extravaganza), Princess and I made a list of the things we are thankful for. In addition to things I am thankful for, I added some affirmations. I guess I'm thankful for affirmations, too!

I am trying to stay upbeat and positive. The fact that we will see the Lizard King in 8 days helps. But Thanksgiving is our holiday. It's a big deal. We cook the meal together. He has his part, I have mine and there are parts we do together. We have people over. LK wants to do our own Thanksgiving while he is home. I'll just focus on that.

I am thankful that Freckle has invited the Princess and me to her house for Thanksgiving day. I am thankful that I will see LK in a week and that we will get to spend 2 1/2 weeks together. I am thankful that his next leave with coincide with the Passover seder. I am thankful for my wonderful family and friends. I am thankful that I get to be a mom and that I will soon be a grandmother. I am thankful to my sister and her fiance for watching Princess and giving me some much needed time off. I am thankful we have reconciled with Tatt-Man and his wife. I am thankful for good health in me and my family. I am thankful that I have you all reading my blog.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Much to be thankful for even if your Thanksgiving isn't ideal.

And I see you now have a new blog header! Who's to thank for that?

Gobble, gobble!

Persistence! I have wanted a new blog header for A LONG TIME. I don't have any fancy photo editing software, but I sat down yesterday determined.

I went old school and used Paint, you know the one in Windows Accessories, and Word. I'm pretty pleased with it.

Gobble, gobble to you!
