I have always called Thankgiving 'Turkey Day' and I love cats, so this tag was 'purrfect' for me, thanks Sugar! lol
Every six years, whether I like it or not, my birthday falls on said Turkey Day! This is the year! The kids are very excited about it, so that makes it fun. I also get to see Kathy, since she hosts the holiday down at her house, so I am very happy and excited about that!
I am turning 42, and for all you Doug Adams fans, I guess I will now know the meaning of life, the universe, and everything, as my dear Hammer reminds me. LOL I'll keep you posted on that one!
Libby, my dear sweet crazy yellow lab, will be turning 6 on 11/26 and therefore, also 42. tee hee.... If I only had her energy!
Since I am sharing my birthday with the holiday, and it has been such a sucky year (read: brain tumor, flaring), I have declared today my birthday, too! Hubby stayed home from work to celebrate, and we went to breakfast with Fuzzy and Pumpkin before school!
I came back and napped, and Hubby woke me with my choice of Dunkin Donuts coffees, hot or iced, both the largest they offer. Yes! Yummy!
In a little while, he and the kids are going shopping... what for... I don't know!! LOL
We might go to see Beowulf tonight! I loved when we did the poem in my high school English class, and the movie looks amazing! Going to a movie for my birthday has been something we seem to do a lot. One year it was a Harry Potter, another year, James Bond. I do love my action films! LOL
I do have to make my Maple Baby Carrots to bring to Kathy's house for tomorrow, but they are easy and quick to make, I may even do them tomorrow morning. They will still be warm then and easier to heat up for dinner!
It may be Friday before I blog again, so please, have a blessed Turkey Day, and remember to count your blessings. It is the perfect day to give acknowledgement to them in your heart, and to communicate, and validate them from your lips. Appreciate the little things, and the big.
I thank you J-Land for being one of my many blessings.
There are many of us who have chronic illness, but illness can sometimes be a great clarifier, helping you to truly 'see' the value of all the 'good things' in your life.
I am blessed by my chronic illnesses to remember to never, ever, take anything for granted. Tomorrow, I will give many thanks.
