Of course I am thankful for my family and friends but that’s too cliché. Here are some other things I’m thankful for.

Thankful For List:

Cameras – Taking pictures so when I’m old I can look back and say “Wow, look how young I looked – what happened?” … Okay, maybe not cameras.

Chocolate – There’s nothing quite like the taste of chocolate. Chocolate brownies, chocolate strawberries, chocolate Toblerone, hot chocolate. I’d eat it every day if I could. But then I’d get cavities and gain ten pounds and have that sinking feeling of trying to zip up my jeans and realizing that no amount of jumping up and down or lying on the bed and sucking in my gut would make the zipper budge. …. Okay, maybe not chocolate.

Facebook – It’s so wonderful being able to spend time online visiting friends from the comfort of my home, dressed in sweats, talking /typing and keeping up to date with everyone’s family. It really doesn’t matter that my laundry never gets done, I haven’t gardened in weeks and my closets look like a gang of two-year-olds decided to redecorate. What matters is that I’ve been able to type happy birthday to over three hundred friends and show them a dorky picture of me shouting “Mimi’s!” Wait a minute… Okay maybe not Facebook.

Cooking a giant meal for… yeah right!

Vacations – Traveling to new places and seeing new sites is exhilarating. It reminds me of the joy of life and gives me a renewed spirit of happiness. But then I come home and I’m suddenly aware of all the dirt in my house and that my eleven year-old carpet is truly disgusting, my refrigerator is still leaking water, my baseboards and blinds have layers of dust, my bedroom walls are still stark white and there’s a strange odor emanating from my garage. Too bad I just spent all my money on vacation. Okay… maybe not vacations.

So, in summary… I am very thankful for my friends and family… and sarcasm. Happy Thanksgiving!
