I have a tiny rant today and then I will move on to some fun stuff…
So, I am not sure if I have discussed this with you here before or not, but as you know, I am single lady and I am perfectly content with that – not all of the time, but 99% of the time I am fine with it and am just enjoying myself, this bothers some people for some reason. Certain people. After being constantly asked about it and not in a conversational way, I decided it was best to distance myself for a bit. Well, this person was at my house yesterday for dinner, hadn’t seen him in forever, and one of the first questions (of course) was, so how’s the love life? I responded and said, nothing special going on, really. And he goes, oh, so still single party of one I take it? With an eye roll! AN EYE ROLL! Umm…what? Does it really need to be broken down like that?! Why does it matter? And if it matters that much to you, then send some smart good looking guys in my direction. END.
I have been working really hard this year at coming up with some creative and fun ideas to give as gifts. That has meant a lot of crafting opportunities which is exactly what I have been needing and wanting. Hopefully the recipients will be even a fraction as excited to receive them as I have been to make them and subsequently, give them. Hoping that there are no issues of trying to get them back to Seattle! Also, I have been sort of, tiny, tiny bit contemplating the idea of taking some painting classes. WHAT?! In what spare time I have no idea, but it might be worth trying to make some and just sleeping even less.
Today is my last Wednesday night Happy Hour for awhile. That makes me more than a bit sad actually. For a variety of reasons.
In the nearish future, I am going to be potentially working to incorporate a career and college exploration program to a local high school. Certainly don’t hate that! 🙂 Who knows what it will actually entail, time commitment wise, program wise, or anything, but I think it is really great for my to start getting back out there and doing some volunteering in schools again. I have been really stalking down my contact this fall to get back in the mix again and I think that has finally paid off.
Birthday = 3 weeks away, yo! Birthday party thoughts to follow soon!
Seattle = 3 weeks away!
I don’t have Twitter, but sometimes I want to speak in#’s. #weird (am I doing that right?!)
Life feels decent today. More than decent actually. Even though I am a bit random today. Sometimes that is kinda fun though.
So I know I technically missed posting on actual Thanksgiving itself, but I figure that I can be thankful and grateful really at anytime or on any day. And technically it is still Thanksgiving on the West Coast. So here goes…
This Thanksgiving I would like to take a moment to be thankful for the wonderful families that have taken me in no questions asked these last three years. I have been so lucky to have been adopted for Thanksgiving when I would otherwise be spending the day alone with myself. These fabulous people have taken me in sight unseen and for all they know I could seriously be the ultimate crazy. I have been welcomed into their homes, hearts, and family to break bread and share in their special Thanksgiving traditions. So, an extra special thanks to them today. Your wine has been plentiful, your turkey fabulous, and your hearts huge.
To my own family. I really just do not even know where I would be without you. Seriously. I know its been a tough last several months, but your unconditional love and support have helped carry me through my darkest days.
To my favorites out there. The same goes to you. Especially my most favorite Bobsey twin. No way would I be here without you. No way.
To those that have touched my life without even knowing it. I am so grateful for you and am trying my best to pay that forward. Your smiles, kind words, random winks even have brightened my days immensely.
And to my heart and soul. Phew, we have lived some life, but thank you for being as resilient as possible and for helping me find faith even on the worst of days.
Oh yeah, thank you to all the crappy, yet fabulous songs out there for making me smile, bob my head, and laugh.
Finally, thank you to those who take the time to read my thoughts in my own little corner of the web. The random likes, comments, and follows are so wonderful.
Begins with champagne breakfast of course!
As I sit here in Cambridge this Thanksgiving Thursday and reflect on my life and where I am at first of all and how far I have come this year, I really and truly am so thankful.
So thankful to all of my favorites who have supported me along the way in this journey of mine.
So thankful to be feeling happy and alive.
So thankful for Hulu. Hulu without you, I don’t know where I would be – well, probably reading a lot more. 🙂
So thankful to have hope and faith at some point every single day in myself and in this process.
So thankful to come from a Pac-10 football school. (While it was a lot of fun to check out Boston College football, it is a little hard to swallow when the crowd got most excited when Shipping Up to Boston came on over the loudspeaker – don’t get me wrong, I have learned to love this song, but REALLY?!)
So thankful it is finally Thanksgiving so I can have my first Eggnog latte of the season. Pursuant to the L sister tradition all that is missing is Burger King on this fine Thanksgiving.
And it is absolutely worth repeating, so thankful to all of my favorites who have supported me, have loved me, have listened to me, have helped my find my lost faith and hope, who have made me laugh, who have drank with me, and the list goes on and on.
I miss you all and wish you the very best this Thanksgiving. So thankful for each and everyone of you. Happy Thanksgiving!
