(A day late due to severe turkey-coma)

I am most grateful for my family. My husband the VIP, my DD, and brother LL. My folks and granny, and other assorted siblings and their spawn.

I'm grateful I have a job that isn't too difficult, that I can leave at work at 5 o'clock, and that I work with the VIP.

I'm grateful that I like living here out on the east coast. I can't imagine much worse than hating where you live, even if it isn't what you're used to.

I'm grateful that all our dinner leftovers fit in our fridge, and that we will have lunches for the next week due to my excellent skillz (ha!).

I'm grateful that LL is coming to visit us tomorrow!

And I'm grateful that Tan's daughter wasn't anywhere near Mumbai while travelling in India this week.

Yep, It's A Full Moon

It is insane here today! I have had every single crazy in the entire state of New Jersey on my phone today, and it's only noon! I tell ya, I am *thisclose* to seriously asking the next idiot how s/he dressed him/herself this morning. I need to be at home, drinking some Stephen's Hot Chocolate, watching the Kirks Folly show I recorded yesterday, and knitting all manner of things. So who wants my calls?
