Things For Which I'm Thankful

Happy day after Thanksgiving, everyone! I'm not terribly thankful that I don't have the day off but I am thankful to have a career in this economy, so there's that.

I hope that you all enjoyed the day yesterday. I spent mine with friends (I couldn't head up to New York to see my family since I do have work today) and it was lovely. We had been planning to cook a large meal and at the last second, I joked that we should just go out. But Big Sis agreed that we needed someone else to cook for us and clean the dishes as she has work today, too. So we went out for a lovely meal and beforehand, we enjoyed (or didn't at all enjoy) a movie (don't see Puss in Boots. Don't let him seduce you with those big eyes of his. That movie is terrible. Nothing at all like Shrek.) And the night before that...well, I don't have to tell you everything. But it was fun.

I could spend a paragraph stating all the things for which I'm thankful but I'm cheesy enough on here without launching into all of that. But I will say, since it's appropriate, that I'm thankful to all of my readers. I created this blog for funsies and assumed no one but a handful of friends would read it. The joke was on me- my friends don't read it almost at all but I have so many loyal readers and I sincerely appreciate each one of you for taking time out of your lives to see what's going on around here. Thank you. Sincerely.

Although I do have to question your sanity ;-)

Good luck at the Black Friday sales today! I did buy myself one thing today:

It's a silver necklace with black diamonds. And, yes, it's a turtle.

I've been thinking about turtles often lately as a symbol of strength. Sometimes they get flipped upside down, stuck in that position for awhile. But they eventually right themselves. Sometimes it takes a little amount of work, sometimes it takes a lot, and it always involves at least a bit of grunting. (Can turtles grunt? I dunno. So I may be lying here.) But they get themselves back up. They get themselves back up.

Didn't I say I wasn't going to be corny in this post? Whoops.


EDIT: Okay, okay. Since we have such an open and honest relationship, I will admit that I later purchased a bag. But I've wanted it for months. And it was literally 80% off. Not a hyperbole. I'm so serious. So there.

I mean. It's all ruffly. It's really not my fault. They pretty much made me buy it.
