Day off

I'm off today. My company does not allow us to carry over any unused leave, so I realized I need to use up some days so I don't lose them. I chose today, knowing it would be helpful to have this day off because of our family's arrival tonight.

I've made a list of things to do today, nearly all of which revolve around getting ready for our family's visit for Thanksgiving. More cleaning, making beds, checking the guest baths for supplies, laundry, and general straightening up. Thank god we did the bulk of the house cleaning and all of the grocery shopping last Sun. We'll probably have to go to the store again though, since they're coming tonight and staying through Sat. Those rug rats eat like its their last meal.

If you're like me, you look forward to Thanksgiving and the other holidays. However, if you happen to be in a bit of a funk or are having trouble getting into the Thanksgiving mood, I urge you to read this, for it will surely make you do a 180. When you really stop (the madness) and think about it, we all have much for which to be thankful.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Uhm, I think you meant a 180, not 360! You don't want to go back to where you started with your funk, you want to get as far away from it as possible, no?

But it's a lovely story anyhow. Happy Thanksgiving to my American cohorts.
