Thankful Stuff

Thanksgiving morning, and I'm watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with the sound off while I wait for Henry to get out of the shower. It's been close to a half an hour. I'm not looking forward to being the next one in line, since today he decided to see if he could stand in there and drain the hot water heater. The performers on TV are jazz-handing all over the place and giving big open-mouthed shouts to the TV, but knowing that they're lip synching makes me hate it all a little bit. Not enough to turn it off; I'm still a sucker for all that dancing.

E is out in the garage grinding metal on his '54 Ford, Maude. It sounds like she's getting a root canal.

For the record, Carrie Underwood is no Julie Andrews.

I'm feeling especially thankful this year. Or aware of what I have that counts--that's a better way to put it. Maybe because I'm graduating in two weeks and this is a period of transition. Maybe because E's grandpa passed away recently and the service is this weekend and I'm thinking about gratitude. Maybe I'm just hormonal.

Who knows.

I'm grateful for these people:

Enjoy your turkey day.
