I know the official Day Of Thanks has already passed, and maybe y'all are full up on the thankful, but I am Having A Moment over here.
I could have said that today was a bad day, given that I woke up in such excruciating back pain as to make ADLs (activities of daily living, for those of you fortunate enough not to know what those are) challenging, and my lunch-date canceled on me due to sickness on her part (feel better, friend C!), but it's really not. I have a warm, safe home. Currently said home is filled with the delicious smell of food my husband and I cooked together for the three healthy, happy children doing homework around the kitchen table, and there are some entitled housepets at my feet, and for all that my back is fucking killing me I can't be mad at the universe right now.
Today I am thankful for friends courteous enough not to expose my respiratorily-compromised arse to further illness, a husband who is willing to do the heavy lifting when my back is messed up, and a home with a fully-stocked pantry and plenty of love to go around. For all that it's occasionally tough as hell, this really is my favorite life :)
P.S. I am also thankful that the XY did, in fact, pay the child support that was due yesterday, and I have finished the holiday shopping. The MFA Children and Hotter will be very happy with their gifts, I think, and I scored myself a pair of those gloves that allow you to use a touchscreen that were deeply discounted for "Cyber Monday," so yay!
