Every year while growing up my mother would ask us what we were thankful for and each year I would promptly roll my eyes at her and walk away. Fortunately, now that she has grandkids she can harass them with that question and leave me out of it.
This year I wanted to write a Thanksgiving post, something sweet that captured the whole tradition of Thanksgiving. I wanted to write something super sappy. Yeah, that’s not going to happen. I am just not feeling sappy. So are some of the things I am thankful for this year:
I am thankful for apps. Seriously, what did parents do when there were no apps to keep their kids sane while waiting at the doctor’s office? I heart you the most of all, Madden NFL.
I am thankful for sweatpants. When one works from home and sits on her rear end all day, sweatpants are a true blessing.
I am thankful for Nordstrom, Piperlime, HomeGoods and TJMaxx. Anyone who knows me really well knows that instead of therapy sessions I prefer browsing therapy. If I have had a particularly frustrating day you can find me working it out at HomeGoods.
I am thankful for full serve gas stations. Really, who wants to stink like petroleum when you’re on your way to a networking event?
I am thankful for cover up. Need I say more?
I am thankful for Spanx. Again, that statement should require no further explanation.
I am thankful for blogfriends. I love my IRL friends too of course. Yet my blogfriends are sparkly, snarky and we get each other on a whole new level of crazy.
I am thankful for red wine. Ok, vanilla vodka too.
I am thankful for time. Elusive, I know. Then again, so is time.
