Be Thankful on Turkey Day

Thankful for.... liquid leggings, the most wonderful item of clothing to own.
Thankful for... daily office visits from my Cousin. He works on a different floor but I look forward to when he comes to shoot the sh*t with me for a few minutes.

Thankful for... my family. For which there are no words needed.♥ ♥

Thankful for... my career. With so many economic woes, I'm very grateful to be employed.
Thankful for... pictures. Which brighten my world in every way. It is my most cherished hobby.

Thankful for... my Grandma Fran and thankful that I got to see her before she passed this year. I miss her very much.

Thankful for... Petfinder.Org., which gives homeless animals a fighting chance.
Thankful for ... my ability to form my own political opinions because I don't have blind allegiance to one party.

Thankful for ... the free tampons at my work because I am often unprepared. TMI?

Thankful for ... my plan for 2012 and knowing what is in store.

Thankful for... good beer. Not beer... good beer.
Thankful for... hair dye for making me feel better when I'm bored.

Thankful for ... the parties I hear my married neighbors throw. I like when married life doesn't just equal a bassinet.

Thankful for... fans because I hate sleeping in stale, silent air.

Thankful for... the Boy. For being so supportive of me all the time and for having the funniest hairdos.

Thankful for... Friends episodes (ESPECIALLY on Thanksgiving), Archie Comics and seltzer mixed with orange juice: all youthful tactics that I still employ daily to stay happy and sane.
Thankful for... my friends. No words again.

Thankful for ... you, my blogging world. Very much enjoy our encounters.

Thankful for ... my friend Juan, who is one of the funniest friends that I have. I can't really explain us, I can only say that we're going strong after many years.
Thankful for... almost getting through 2011 in one-piece. It hasn't really been my favorite year.
Happiest of Thanksgivings!

Love your thankful list. You are so funny. I love when you said that your job provide tampons. I'm always unprepared.

Kim's Vanity said...

Oh Caitlin, the more I read your blog the more I realize how much we have in common lol.
NO your whole tampon tribute wasn't TMI, I never really have any when I need them, but then when I'm off they'll come flying out of my purse when I reach for something else haha.
And beer. Beer is good. GOOD Beer is best =)

2011 hasn't been good to you? Humm, it's interesting, because all year long I kept hearing people say how 2011 was such a cool year... Like it was busy, brought bad stuff as well, but like it was such a powerful driving force making them go forward and all. Been this way for me too. Maybe yours is exception only to prove the general rule? lol Anyway, love your list of thanks :) And love the turkey cooking how to :))
