As Thanksgiving approaches

Let me just say... I LOVE TO EAT!!! Ugh I can't wait for that day to just indulge myself with all the goodness that will be offered.

I LOVE the holidays as it reminds me of when I was a kid. We use to go to my grandmothers for the holidays. That was a trip because if you didn't know what a swear word was you quickly learned. I remember hearing my grandmother tell people "go get bent." As a youngster I had no clue what that meant but learned when I got older what it means.

Those days were replaced by going to my older sister's. And boy can she cook. I always loved going to my sister Jacie's because there was always laughter.

Now that I have been living in CT I rarely have the chance to go home for the holidays. It is hard living in CT with no family here. My friends have to pick up that part.

When my newly found younger sibling found me through Facebook I was beyond estatic. I knew about them but I wasn't allowed to contact them. So I couldn't wait until the day my little sister turned 18 so that she could make the decision on her own. Well many moons later she found me, we met for the first time, and have seen each other 1-2 times a year.

My kids love my family. When it is time to travel to see them they act like its Christmas morning. Then the entire drive I get to hear "How much longer until we get there?" That's always the highlight of my day of driving lol.

See I live right in between both of my older and younger siblings. My older sister lives in Northern New York, my older brother lives in Kentucky and my younger siblings live in VA.

Most of all I am thankful for the life I have right now at this very moment. My life could have turned out much worse than the normal everyday bs that life throws at us.

I am also very thankful for my friend Nonsense Things. She has helped me tremendously with my blog.  It's funny to have a degree in something and not use it in over 6 years and to have to go back to messing with code again reminds me why I never did anything with that degree.

Remember count your blessings as your life could be worse
