I have to admit, I'm not exactly a bottomless pit of thankfulness these days. It's been a rough year and an even rougher fall. And I'm certainly not alone there because I know things are tough all over and there are a lot of people a hell of a lot worse off than me right now. So I thought I would try to make a list of things (and people) that I'm thankful for this season.
  • My wonderful family, without whom I would be even more of a wreck than I am right now. I've been spending a good amount of time wishing my parents lived a few hundred miles closer, but they're still there for me and my grandparents are close by. I'm a very lucky girl.
  • My job, complete with a totally understanding boss and coworkers I like. Also, the fact that I hadn't used up my days off before this shit began.
  • Having the money saved to hire an exterminator (or two, if my next/fifth visit doesn't solve the problem).
  • My roommate's mother, who is yet another person on the list of people who have done all they can to help me deal with this bed bug nightmare.
  • The fact that the people I love are, if not all in great health, all still around and kicking.
  • The fact that Thanksgiving means I'm getting out of my not-presently-much-loved apartment for nearly three days and will instead be spending time with people I adore somewhere where I can actually sit on the couch.
I hope you all have a fantastic, refreshing holiday filled with all kinds of good things.
