My Life. My Experiences. My Love. My Words.

It’s Been A Whole Week!!!!!!!!

So it is Tuesday yet again. I kept meaning to get on here and write, but then laziness would take over, and I am prone to falling into the black hole of laziness. It seems the fatty tissue around my brain enjoys lounging as much as possible. Thank God for the part of my brain that enjoys randomness and excitement and adventure! Woohoo!!!

So anyway, back to the point of this whole bloggy thingy. The last week has been a roller coaster. Work has been absolutely insane! Not the good insane either! The overwhelming one!!! Just trying to deal with that one day at a time. My trainer is still trying to kill me. We did legs last Thursday. If you know me you know I’ll push myself. I might stop for a quick rest, but I will keep trudging along. My legs hurt so bad Friday evening and into Saturday morning that my trainer had me get the foam roller out. Rolling out my quads hurt so badly I was shaking. Then my trainer started rolling out my calves, and I just wanted to cry. Damn you lactic acid!! Damn yooooouuuuu!!!!!!

The weekend was spent at my mom’s. Madi and I were supposed to go to my step-sister in-law’s baby shower. Madi wasn’t doing so great, so instead of risking contaminating the mother to be, we just stayed at my mom’s. We watched John Wick! Is was so frickin good!!! Anyway, I got some archery practice in on Sunday.

So, work is already crazy this week. Just an overload of insanity. Loving my time at the gym! Missing my mini me! The car has been comfy and cozy although I have been sleeping like shit lately. Frustrating as usual when insomnia decides to start kicking in. I am soooooo sleeeeepyyyyyy. And on that note I am going to sign off and enjoy my little cocoon. Sweet dreams!

Hmmm, Tuesday…

Back in the car after being on hiatus since Friday. I was reminded this weekend that my mom’s couch is the most uncomfortable piece of furniture to sleep on. I also came to the realization that houses are like inescapable vortices for me. It’s so difficult to fall asleep in someone else’s house. Then I don’t sleep well. Then I have to trudge through tar pits to get moving in the morning. Maybe I dread a commute? Maybe my body wants to be lazy? Actually, I think that’s it. My brain is in agreement with my body to be lazy, and then it’s just a battle for that tiny voice in my head urging me to get going. Ugh! Damn brain and body working together for the good of nothing!!!!

So this weekend was stressful. Lots of drama! Lots of broken family drama! You know. Work has been crazy busy, pretty much nonstop. Workouts are kicking my butt in a very good way. Sleep has been kinda crappy. I haven’t been consuming enough water. All possible contributing factors to my getting so pissed off about someone that I just wanted to rearrange their face! It would probably help. Alright, that’s mean. But it’s kinda true… 😉 But seriously! This person has no room to say anything about me but still needed to talk shit about me to people I know and show me their bitchy, controlling attitude in an attempt to show their displeasure in my proving them wrong on something. So frickin stupid! It’s not fucking high school!!! Whatever! Just another person I have to deal with constantly for only another 4 1/2 years. I can wait. 🙂

Alright! Trainer almost killed me on Saturday! I was quite sore through yesterday. Even my butt was sore. It hurt to sit on it. 😦 I dd skip my Sunday and Monday workouts though. Bad girl! I know! Told my trainer to remind me not to do that sort of thing again. I think I will be feeling that reminder through Thursday. Not sure if I mentioned it in the last post, but I lost 7 pounds in 23 days! I am happy with it! This month I will be attempting to exceed my goals and run a 10 min mile! Wish me luck!!!!!

The munchkin and I learned how to drive a tractor on Sunday! This weekend we’ll learn to do more. Woohoo!!! Ok. I am tired. Going to get some shut eye. Sweet dreams. I’ll write more this week. Ciao!

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh…My Cocoon.

Being back in the car I forgot just how comfy it was in here. It’s always a bit strange parking at the office since there’s some little “security” car that drives around. Whatev. As long as she doesn’t bug me we won’t have any problems. Just sayin.

I was so comfortable this morning that it was just difficult climbing back up to the front seat to get my flip flops on and grab my bag to get ready upstairs. Then I was alerted to what sounded like an animal being eaten alive maybe twenty feet from my spot. It was horrific!!!! There’s a creek that runs directly behind me, and there are plenty of wild things back there. But dear god! If you’re gonna eat something alive at least go for the throat within the first five minutes!! Geez!!!! I did finally get moving around 6 am, which is when a couple people start showing up around the building. The last thing I need is for people to see me in my zombie-like, morning state climbing out of my vehicle. Ugh! It ain’t purdy!!!

I am a little excited today!!!! I bought a hitch-mount bike rack off Craigslist today for $100!!! It can hold four bikes! It even has a feature where you can extended it out to where I can open the back of my car! Dude even gave me the lock he bought for it so no one can gank my shiznit! Now I just need to buy something to lock the bikes onto the rack. Thing is solid! And heavy! I’ll include a pic at the end. 🙂

Training is going great! We have now entered the phase where he is going to attempt to kill me. He has three chances a week at succeeding, but I keep on truckin! Everything always hurts two days later. So by Thursday my arms are going to jump off my body and run away in order to never be used again for strength training purposes. You think I’m joking. :-/ Thursday is going to be a leg day. I already know that is going to hurt like a mother fucker. Yep. Gonna hurt! But it’s such a good hurt! Unless I have to sit down… I think you know the activity I speak of. It’s happened to most of us.

So food wise, being back in my car, I haven’t really set anything up that’s special. Since I am back to watching my calories I can’t do too much sake drinking before bed, although that might be on the agenda tomorrow night. Mmmmm. Sake… It’s basically oatmeal or something for breakfast. Usually coffee and creamer in there. Trying to get my protein levels up, but even with my protein shake I miss the mark. Can’t really cook, so it needs to be something I can grab on the go that isn’t so over processed it’s just a frankenfood. I keep believing I will cook up stuff on the weekends to eat during the week. Yeah… That seems to be working in some parallel universe, but obviously not in this one. If anyone has any suggestions on how to add more protein to my diet while remaining calorie conscious, please share. I have heard that pea protein is all the rage now. Can anyone support this randomness? Anyway, seriously, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

With that I am off to dreamland. It be late. I be tired. Have a good night and sweet dreams.

I love you angel pie!!!!!! 🙂

Getting Back Into the Grooooooooove…

Sitting at my dad’s for the last night, eating a bowl of organic raisin bran, and getting a load of laundry done before I enjoy the comfort of a bed one last time before cocooning myself in my vehicle again. Since the holidays started through my dog sitting time, I haven’t spent any time in my car. This translates into my car being a wreck (I put part of my backseat up for human transport), and now I need to reorganize. I have crap spread between different bags and suitcases, and I have accumulated more stuff from Christmas and my birthday. I have not made a trek to storage in quite a while, so nothing has been dumped off over there. Saturday I went through and cleaned out the car. Dropped off all my sake at my mom’s. Now I have stuff that needs to go to the office and stuff that needs to go to storage before I can fully enjoy the comforts of my home. 🙂 Basically, tomorrow is going to be a busy day. Woohoo!!!!

Anyway, had a pretty good weekend. Met a woman I love working with for the first time on Friday. She works for the company that my company distributes for, and it was awesome getting to put a face to the voice. Nothing at all what I imagined her to look like! Crazy how the mind does that. You get this idea of what someone would look like based on their voice, and they never ever ever look like what you think! Ever!!! Just crazy!!!!

Hung out at my mom’s for the weekend. Always love hanging out at mom’s, but I swear that place is like a vortex of laziness. I mean, it’s like a place to get away, and you just don’t feel like doing shit. It’s nice! It’s relaxing! I can be myself and not care about the world. At least until my mom and I start discussing politics and randomness. Then a fire is lit, but we’re usually thinking along the same lines. Usually. Love you mom. My sister dropped by yesterday and today. Always good to see her! It’s weird being over at mom’s and she’s not living there anymore. I always love it when all of us girls are together!

So Texas weather is crazy! It was cold and rainy most of last week, and now it is warming up again. It’s supposed to be in the mid-seventies through Thursday!!!! I think I might be mixing up some outdoor time with my gym time this week. Maybe get some vitamin D production going. Today was the beginning of the warm up. It was windy as all hell, but the sun was out and shining, and the sky was a beautiful blue! I decided to pull out the ol’ bow and get some target practice in. Damn wind! Damn wind!!!!!!!! I didn’t do too terribly bad, but boy that wind made it a challenge. Hell! It’s been so long since I last practiced I’m surprised I hit the damn target at all!! It felt good though! It was nice shooting something! I just picture someone’s face in place of the target bag and voila! Instant stress release! Just kidding! I wasn’t picturing anyone’s face, but now that I have thought about it I wish I had.

Alright, I am going to finish up laundry and do some dishes and go to bed! Oh yeah! Must enter my calories for the day! I have been really really bad this weekend! But it was oh so worth every fattening, calorie-dense morsel!!!! Eh! I’ll work it off this week I am sure! I won’t have much else to do but go to the gym. On that note, good night and sweet dreams!

It burns!!!!!!

Still not in my car. Totally lounging at my dad’s this week, because I keep putting off reorganizing my “home.” I am being lazy. Yep! L-A-Z-Y! That spells not-getting-up-off-my-ass-to-do-what-I-need-to-do!!! 🙂

Besides that all is great! Work has been crazy busy, and I almost had a mental breakdown last week. From the craziness of a project to people hammering for crap to an ex idiot trying to say I have publicly slandered him and has sent a letter to the Texas Supreme Court and reports me to Facebook!!! Oh noooooooo!!!!! What will Facebook do?!?!?! Obviously they don’t give a rat’s ass, because they haven’t done shit. Oh nooooooooo!!!! The Texas Supreme Court!!!!! I really don’t think they give a rat’s ass either! Idiot! Dear god where do I find these losers?! Why do they find me? Why do they exist? All I wanted was to start this new year off great! And then BAM!!!! DRAMA!!! In my G D face!!!!! Whatever. It was last week. He’s an idiot. My life is great, and one loser isn’t going to ruin it, dammit!

So, I have started training. Started two weeks ago. Definitely feel a difference already. My trainer is pretty awesome, and very cute, which my daughter busted out with (and now denies). Yes. He is. But he is also a great trainer! I am so glad my old trainer recommended him! Different style than I’m used to, but that’s a good thing! Hitting the gym again is great!!! Although I let myself go for far too long, and I hate that I have gotten so weak and fat and just ick! Moving on…

So there’s really not too much going on over here. My mini-me has her first competition of the year this Saturday, so that’s pretty awesome!!!! She is doing great in school, and makes me so proud! I love my angel pie!

With that I am going to sign off. I don’t have much to really update you all on, and I’m sorry, but I know there were a couple of you commenting on my lack of blogging. I hope I have satisfied that hunger for Bonnie-isms. Have a great night!!!!! Sweet dreams!!!

It’s Not New, It’s A Continuation…

So yeah. Happy New Year! All those resolutions should be in full swing by now. Right? I didn’t make any this year. I made goals, but not resolutions. What’s the point? I mean, it’s easier for me to give up something for Lent, and I’m not even religious! But to resolve to do something? That’s just too much pressure! Seriously! Thirty days? No problem! Undetermined amount of time to do something drastically different in order to appease the New Year gods? Nah! I have better shit to do! Trust me. I had been a victim of that for far too long! Time to reclaim my year for me!

Anyway. Had to get that off my chest. And yes. I feel much better now. 🙂 Did everyone have a fun time ringing in the New Year? I find it harder and harder to stay up until midnight. Maybe I’m just getting old? Maybe when you’re used to being in bed no later than ten to wake up by five it just doesn’t seem possible to stay up later? I do keep finding out that my body doesn’t like it when I drink. I mean, a couple bottles of sake, that’s fine. Four or six beers? No problem! Any more than that? Nope! No way! Body says to me the next day, “So, you think that was worth it? Do ya? Punk?” Yeah… Headache all the next day. All day! I felt perfectly fine except for that damn throbbing in my skull that wouldn’t go away. Ridiculous!!!!! I know better! Oh well.

So I do start getting to work on my major goal next week! I’m excited!!!! Actually I am dreading it a bit, but I know what the outcome will be when I apply myself. I will run and complete every obstacle in that Savage Race! 7 miles! ALL obstacles! I will do it!!!!! Oh god this is going to hurt! I know what lies ahead of me, and oh dear god! The pain! But oh the satisfaction!!!!!

On that note, let me know what your goals or resolutions are for this fabulous, new year! I have a feeling this is going to be one hell of an awesome year, especially after the crappy one we just survived. I know a lot of people who had a rough one, and some of that is being carried over into this one, but I have a feeling it will get better. It has to get better at some point, right? Anyway, let me know. Tell me your thoughts. Your dreams. Your fears. Your wishes. Share them so that we can all look forward to creating a year we’re excited about! Woohoo!!!!!!!!! 2015!

Now, where the F is my hover board?????

I’m Sorry.

So it’s been a while since I’ve written, and I have received some major grief about it. You know who you are! 😉 It actually makes me feel pretty good knowing my friends and family kinda miss me. So I suppose I have a lot of writing to do today in order to get everything caught up. Here goes.

I left off on December 14th, in San Francisco. I had gotten to my beach, driven over the Golden Gate and checked into my hotel in Pleasanton. It was a pretty awesome day! The next morning I had a horn demo to do for work. I had never done one. Just so you know what the heck I am talking about, the company I work for designs and installs quiet zones and wayside horn systems (only one of many things they do). Basically it’s a horn that is aimed directly toward road traffic to sound for the train as it approaches a crossing. This directs the sound of the horn blowing to the vehicles needing to stop, rather than having the train blow his horn as he comes into town, generally blasting homes and businesses with a high number of decibels and plain old noise. So this takes some coordination with the railroads and towns and contractors. I was a bit nervous to say the least, but it turned out to be an amazing experience. Not only did I get to meet and work with some great people, it was incredible seeing the people who lived in the town come out to hear the demo. It was greatness! And I totally understand! I lived pretty much under an airport, and you get used to that, no problem, but I couldn’t imagine trying to live next to a set of tracks hearing that train horn multiple times a day. I have been miles away and could still hear that damn whistle. It’s faint, but it’s still there.

Anyway, enough about that. I was told I needed to stay through that Tuesday. The demo was on Monday. I had nothing to do that next day. I asked my boss what he wanted me to do. His response was to have fun. My idea of fun was driving to San Jose. I was excited. I had never been there! The buildings were quite pretty, but I’m a sucker for those lovely, blue windows. This city looked nice. I should have a good time here right? Wrong! What the F was I thinking?! San Jose sucked!!!! After walking around to grab something to eat and explore the city a bit, let’s just say I was less than impressed. What a shit hole! I would have been better off sleeping in and watching a movie. So I decided to drive back up to San Fran! At least there are things to do there. Besides, I was hungry! Really effing hungry!

On my way up to SF, I got to drive by the ballpark. I should have stopped, but I was on a mission for sustenance. I made it back over to Pier 39. At the end of the pier was a sushi place! Mouth was a watering! I ordered up some sushi, a bottle of nigori sake, and enjoyed my view overlooking the bay. It was quite nice. After perusing the shops on the pier, I decided to head back over to Pleasanton. I had a super early flight the next morning, and I needed to get back to pack and get some sleep. Everyone else seemed to want to leave the city too! At the same, effing, time!!!!!! Awesome!!! I will never live in a big city unless I never plan to drive out of it! Ridiculous!!! I was engulfed in stupidity, and I couldn’t get out!!!!!! I was talking to my mom on the phone, hands free of course, and she got to hear the frustration. Sorry mom. It was like being thrown into some lawless, Mad Max society, where no traffic laws truly existed and the only way to get out was to just be a jerk driver. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! So I did! Took me two hours to get back to the hotel. Two. Hours!!!!!!!! It was only supposed to be a 45 minute drive. It could have been worse, I know, but still. Stupid!

So blah blah blah, I flew back home, worked a couple hours that day. Worked all day Thursday. Dentist appointment on Friday. Missed the company Christmas party due to being on Vicodin and recovering from twilight anesthesia. Anyone who knows me knows I am not a fan of dentists. After having multiple teeth pulled as a child and years of bad braces experience, I get nervous. I don’t do well with hands and needles and drills in my mouth, so it’s either nitrous or twilight. I prefer the twilight. I don’t want to know what’s going on. I can’t cry if I’m oblivious. Seriously. I don’t cry cry. Just the tear streaming thing. Like crying when I’m super mad. I can’t help it. I know I’m fine, but they just start flowing. I’m prepared for that whole zombie apocalypse, bring it on. But any dental work will have to be done after someone hits me over the head with a rock or something. So now you know my anxiety caused by dentistry. Yea!!!!

This brings us up to the week of Christmas. My birthday is two days before that. I get taken out for my birthday on Monday by my dad and second mom and my mini-me and her step-brother. It was a good evening. Had some great Mexican food at Los Asaderos. I had never eaten there, and I must say it was quite delicious. Those were some good margaritas! We headed back to their house for an early Christmas. They weren’t going to be in town and wanted to give gifts early, and it was a great feeling getting to unload the gift I had bought two months prior for my stepmom. Finally!!! Yea!!!!!!!!! My dad will get his after he gets back from Missouri. He wouldn’t have been able to put it to good use before heading out of town anyway. Went to work the next day (my b-day) and had a birthday lunch with my buddy José and wiring mentor, Tina (she taught me how to wire and read prints and a lot of other cool things). Hadn’t seen her in a long time, so that was pretty awesome! Got back to the office to see that they decided to close at noon. Noon! There goes my getting stuff out that day. Oh well. I have next week. It was still a good day though. Got to drag my munchkin with me to the office. Got some great b-day calls. Drove down to my mom’s for birthday lasagna made by mom, and pumpkin bread and cream cheese icing made from scratch by my sister. Mmmmmmmmm… One of my best friends drove an hour to give me my birthday gift on my birthday. So that made my b-day even better! All in all, I had a great day!!!!!!

So Christmas was a day away. I needed to do some last second shopping and run a couple errands. My big Christmas gift to myself was getting in touch with my old trainer and meeting up with him. I’ll be starting my training after the new year with a new trainer named Kyle. My old one is now a club manager and no longer trains others. 😦
The past couple of years I have been going downhill. I sit in front of a computer at work, pretty much all day, and I am so tired from doing nothing, that I pretty much stick with that routine for the rest of the day. It’s almost as if I’d lost my zest for living. The lazier I got, the less I wanted to get out and do the things I loved. It’s gotten to the point where I have shut out most of the outside world. Not a good place to be. I may not like being around people very much, but I need to spend time with friends and family and get out. Yes. I have gotten to travel and get out and explore, but it’s been alone. It’s lonely trying to have fun by yourself. I am no social butterfly, and I have no problem eating out or having a drink at a bar alone, but it’s always nice being able to share experiences with others. If I keep it up, this blog may be the only way I’ll really share anything anymore. Pretty pathetic, huh? On top of all that, numerous studies show you can extend your life by having a good sense of community and friendships with others. Then I get overwhelmed trying to find a group to join to maybe at least make some buddies and get out more. It’s stupid! Anyway, enough about my ridiculous self-pity moments. It’s a vicious cycle!

My mom’s Christmas gift was Italian beef ordered from Portillo’s in Chicago, and damn that was good!!!! Madi had never had an Italian beef sandwich before. My sister had never experienced Portillo’s. That was some damn good food!!!!! I think we started a new holiday tradition!!! I am totally down with it! Screw traditional dinner! Portillo’s!!!! Yeah!!!!!

So now I bring you up to today. A cold front came through. It be chilly! Still hanging at my mom’s. We are going to make it a movie day and head out this afternoon, but for now we’re all just lounging around. It’s nice. Cali is keeping my toes warm. 🙂 Harley is keeping the mini-me warm. Baby Kitty is off somewhere being her ADD self. Trust me. She is the most easily distracted creature I have ever seen! I love my hairy kids, and I love the half version of me currently sitting in the living room. 🙂

I won’t be in my car for a while. I’ll be adding a bunch of miles this week to it, but there won’t be much sleeping in it until mid January. I’ll continue writing and attempting to keep you entertained. I hope everyone had a great Christmas with their loved ones!! I’ll talk to you soon! Ciao!

A Broken Home…

Well, my home had to be towed this evening. 😦 I need to have my four wheel drive selector switch replaced. It’s been a long time coming, and I can obviously no longer put it off. Well, let me look at the bright side: it needed an oil change anyway. 🙂 I was at 6% oil life remaining, so it had to be done sooner or later.

What’s funny is I had just had some awesome Chinese food for dinner and had texted my stepmom to ask if I could just stay at her place, when my car decided, in the absolute worst part of the road, to casually slip out of gear and not go back into one. :-/

I was planning on just sleeping in my car once it got to the shop, but I’m not sure how much I would actually get being so close to a hospital. There are quite a few sirens going off this evening. Must be a lot of craziness going on for a Monday night! Plus this is not exactly a choice neighborhood to relax in, and I would probably sleep horribly.

Currently I am sitting in my car, waiting for my mom. I’ll probably have to use up some personal time, but it needs to get taken care of. Oh joy! As crappy as this night became, there have been friendly and helpful people getting me through it. My friend who pushed my car a quarter mile with his own (thank you, Paul). My stepmom offering to send my dad out here (thank you, Min). The tow truck driver who was super nice (thank you tow truck guy). The guy at the mechanic’s shop who was on night duty, offered to let me watch tv until my ride showed up, and took my key and said he’d keep an eye on my car for me (thank you mechanic guy). My mom who drove an hour to come pick my sorry ass up (thank you mom). As crappy as my day has seemed to be, I can’t help but be thankful for all the good people who help me out in my times of need.

Anyway, I am tired. My brain hurts. My eyeballs hurt. It’s been a very long day, and I am worn the eff out! So I wish you a good night and pleasant dreams. I’ll be staying at mom’s tonight…

Almost a Week!!!!!!!! Oh Noooooooo…

I don’t think you have missed me too badly since I haven’t gotten crap from anyone asking why I hadn’t written lately. Well ok, maybe my mom said something about it, but I have been spending quite a bit of time with her lately, and she’s been up to date on everything anyway. I think I slept in my car maybe once the past six days which I had been missing. Tonight I was going to stay at my dad’s, but the weather isn’t crazy cold so may as well sleep in my own cave. 🙂

After doing this for a month I realize I have brought too much crap with me in my car and plan on dumping some of it off at storage. I have also realized that I am still just as lazy as before and desperately need to start working out again. Like really. Really need to start running again and doing the standard push ups and core stuff along with some squats. I know what I need to do. I’m just lazy. Really lazy… Not a good thing! I am thinking maybe getting a trainer just to get me back into it may help. That whole accountability thing works for me. I have no problem letting myself down, but I don’t like letting others down, if that makes any sense. To my brain it totally works. Now I just need to stop procrastinating and buy some sessions. Lazy lazy lazy. I got that down to a fine art! 😉

This has been a pretty good week. Got to work out in the field doing some wiring at a crossing. That was fun! Nice to get out from behind my computer. And speaking of computers, I finally got my new work computer, a laptop, so when I travel or feel extremely under the weather, I can still work!!! It’s quite nice actually! Yay!!!! I ordered my iPhone 6 and should get that soon. Going to get my daughter’s Christmas presents all bought. 🙂 I have an appointment to get my hair done on Thursday. Hopefully flying out to Cali on Friday for a horn demo next Monday. Today my best friend had a Christmas/holiday dinner party, and that was fun. I have a good bit going this month. Weird that it’s so busy though. Not complaining, but I still can’t get over the weirdness factor of it all. Hmmmmm…

Anyway, I need to get an early night tonight and catch up on my sleep. I have a super early day tomorrow and a lot to get done. Wish me luck! So on that note have a wonderful night and sweet dreams to you. 🙂

The Day of Turkey Is Upon Us – And I’m Thankful

So technically it is Thanksgiving. A day for being thankful for what we have been blessed with. I love the fact that it is basically a crazy family day, where the craziness begins the day before with pies baking and foods being prepped. In one quick moment, all of the time and cooking and cleaning and chopping and baking culminate into a grand feast after which we all happily attempt to remain awake. I find it quite difficult trying to stay awake. Sometimes you just have to undo that top button (or come prepared in sweat pants) and give in to the tryptophan.

This year, we are having our turkey day on Saturday. My sis has to work today, and my mom wasn’t feeling very well in order to start the baking. And me? Well, I decided to head to the office to get a few things done that I didn’t get to the day before. Yea! Work on my day off!!! The nice part of that was I got there after everyone left, so my music was cranked up, and I was singing away with no one to distract me!!! I really had nothing better to do, so being at the office wasn’t bad. 🙂

Basically today will be a day of movies and hanging out in my jammies and hopefully sleeping in since it’s currently 1:45 am. The cats are being idiots and running around right now though. Only when I am about to go to sleep they decide to wake up! Oh well. They’ll come sleep on me some point soon, and I will be thankful for that. So here goes the year’s thanks: I am thankful for my family, my close friends who are more family than some family, my daughter who is amazingly talented, smart and beautiful, my job and the people I work with, my car that hasn’t broken down on me yet despite needing a lot of work and tlc, my health because let’s face it, I’m still alive, and last but not least, I am thankful for all the experiences life has to offer, because without them, life wouldn’t be worth living.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!!!
