so today you get the smarmy post

It's Thanksgiving.  I'm thankful.  I've got both my kids home, and they are so amazing.  Every once in awhile I'm just dumbstruck that I get to be their mom.  And dh.  For every minute that he drives me crazy, there are two minutes where he is a far better spouse than I deserve.  And we're all healthy, even though two of us have colds at the moment.  And our house is warm, even though it was below zero last night.  And the dog is as dumb as a stump, but so sweet.  And our cat is elderly, but now that her joints hurt, she likes to snuggle up for warmth and it is pretty nice to have a warm cat in your lap on a cold night.  And later today, we're going to have dinner with a bunch of great friends and have more food than we could possibly consume, which means we will also have fabulous leftovers tomorrow.  And the pies are turning out well-- even the cherry, which is always the trickiest one.

It's a great life, and I'm lucky to be in it.  I'm thankful.

  1. Smarmy is not always a bad thing. My girls were upstairs a little bit ago, laughing themselves nearly sick. It's a blessing (and a curse).
    Yay for your very appropriate thankfulness.
