Today is Thanksgiving. A day to spend with your family and to remember what you're thankful for.
Unless you're working retail. Because then it pretty much sucks.
I, for one, refuse to shop on Thanksgiving. Black Friday beginning at 3am was enough. But Black Friday on Thanksgiving? What is happening to society?
Anyway, here's a list of things I'm thankful for - in no particular order:
For the roof over my head.
To have not one, but three jobs to help keep that roof over my head, even if some days I still have nothing in the bank account.
To have Boyfriend at my side.
The three kitties that enjoy snuggling (when they're not being giant pains in the ass).
For excedrin when I have a headache.
That I already owned a set of studded tires for this winter (it also allows me to save up for new regular tires next spring).
For my parents instilling a good work ethic and morals in me.
To those who teach me things.
For the really super nice IRS guy on the phone the other day. He took the time to help me figure out what I feared was a huge problem. Turned out to be nothing. (whew!)
That I love reading. I could have a much worse addiction.
No offense to Ferguson, MO, but I'm very thankful I live 2,000 miles from your city.
That none of my three jobs include working in retail or being a telemarketer.
That Mockingjay is in theaters. Because I cannot wait to see it!
And many, many more things.
Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving
