I'm thankful for many many things...
But my pound cake just fell apart. My sweet potato pies are looking soupy. And my apple cake came out way too crispy on top.
4 desserts and 2 sweet potato pies later, and I am not thankful for my tiny ass kitchen with 3 feet of counter space.
But back to the good stuff...
I'm thankful all 3 of my nephews made it back from the war this year in one piece, physically if not mentally.
I'm thankful all 3 of them have decided not to re-enlist.
I'm thankful that I get to spend this thanksgiving with both my family and C's, even if it meant twice the work in my tiny ass kitchen.
I'm thankful that I live in the USA. Even if I'm scared of the direction this country is headed, I know that there are far far far worse places in the world that I could be living in.
I'm thankful for the support and love of my family.
I'm thankful for good friends that make me laugh, and listen when I need to cry.
I'm thankful for fandom, i've met wonderful friends here, its always entertaining, and I love it, warts, wank and all.
I'm thankful for jobs that are good paying and stable, even if I don't like mine at all.
I'm thankful for Sassy, even though she peed on my bed last night.
I'm thankful for Whiskey, Echo, and Sierra, even if Sierra is a bit of loon, Echo is a bit of a pig and Whiskey sometimes bites my fingers because she gets nervous taking treats and grabs them too fast.
Most of all I'm thankful for C. She is my best friend. She is phenomenal in bed (its true and I really should be thankful for it, sorry if its TMI) She makes me feel safe. And because of her, I can't help but feel happy when I think of my future.
