I didn’t get  a gratitude post up on Thanksgiving, but since I am feeling especially grateful today, this seemed like a good time to give thanks. I am grateful for:

Days off, and having a job that I both enjoy and that provides good benefits including leave.

My wife, for taking care of the pets this morning and letting me sleep in.

Our new basement, providing a nice place to do the ironing.

The pets, especially the hound for having a nice sleepy morning and not barking when I snuck downstairs to do the ironing.

Time to both be lazy (as I write this I am watching the Price is Right in my pajamas. I can’t remember the last time that happened!) and get things done. I have been feeling a little stressed about the holidays. Not the day itself, which I am happy to be spending with that great wife I mentioned before, but the fact that I have to mail all the presents this year. I am happy to have had a few minutes of quiet to figure out when everything has to get done by in order to get the presents there by Christmas.

Life is good.

    This is even *better*! Because it’s grateful when you are, not just on the day.

    I’m so looking forward to the basement ironing station. Such a lame thing to say, I know…maybe I’ll put shots and rock n roll down there so I don’t feel so wife-y? 😉
