I am thankful for my cousins. Or my “children”…whatever you want to all them. I help raise those boys since they day they were born, I used to stay at their house weeks at a time, or they stayed with me as they got older. We were always together, used to spend every weekend in the summer at “the lake” with the whole families mixed. Those were the worst, yet the best years of my life. I miss a few things about that time, not all, but some. I miss the simple part of life, just trying to enjoy it, with very little responsibility.
I am so glad to have those boys in my life. Without them I may not be here right now…
I am thankful for being able to spend the day with my man. See, he quit one job and took up another. He did this because he said “it will mean more time off and more things we can do together.” Hmm…I knew that wouldn’t happen and boy was I right! I get to see him about half of what I used to, maybe less.
Today was the first time I had seen him in almost two weeks! That is a long time for someone that is about 12 miles away at any given time. He’s always too busy with things he has to do now…I don’t like it at all. I hate that he is so busy and then when he is off, he goes camping. Of course I’m always invited but because of work I can rarely go. I don’t have the set schedule he does, I can’t just ask for vacation either.
And now the holidays are coming up…I’m starting to really hate them! For so many reasons starting with the fact that I have to act single even though I’m not…ugh. More on that to come, look for my holiday post soon.
I am thankful for finding a career I love, despite the assholes that are ruining it for me!! I am glad I can help others and love doing so!
It’s not about saving a life, it’s more about holding grandma’s handing and listening to her talk about the spouse she lost after 50+ years. It’s not about being a hero, it’s about showing that child there is a better life. It’s not about getting your picture in the paper, it’s about being there when someone needs you most.
Just remember though…I’m here to save your ass, no kiss it! : )
I am thankful for all the veterans out there! Thank you for keeping my freedom free! And thank you for all the current soldiers keeping me safe!
I am thankful for my friends. Both through my blog and in life. I am glad to have those few people I can truly call my friends, the ones that are there for me. I am thankful for the “fair weather friends” too because they bring random happy moments when I need it without knowing what they do. I am thankful for the people I have met through my blog too! I’m so glad to have you guys! Thank you for putting up with me!!
I am thankful for my job. Correction, jobs…all 5 of them! I am just thankful to be working. Even “hell”…I’m just glad to have a paycheck from there. The rest of my jobs I am thankful to have and love having!
Now, back to work to save another life…or hold grandmas hand because she’s lonely…all good in my book.
I am thankful for my freedom of speech. With that, the following…
Fuck it! I’m gonna live off the government instead of working for my stuff. China owns us anyway!! Free shit. Money. No more drug tests. Better house, car and clothing than I have now. Free cellphone. Can’t beat ’em, join ’em!!
