November came and went...

...like a summer that I spent
with a no-name girl that walked in jelly shoes

Thirty Days of Thanksgiving, Day #30. I'm thankful that November is over!

Back to my regularly scheduled (once a week-ish) blogging. Back to my whiny, un-thankful self. Just kidding. I'll try to stay positive for y'all. But if I feel the urge to complain, I just might.

I'd love to pontificate on what the 30 days of Thanksgiving has done for me. The momentous change in my outlook that I've had from approaching life with more gratitude. It *is*true that by forcing myself to think about all that I'm thankful for, I have spent more time counting my blessings. For that, I am certainly glad I participated in the exercise as I do think it's made me a happier person. But I think it will be nice to blog about a few other things, too!

Yay! Back to being grateful for the chance and place to be snarky!

I was laughing with Tal the other night that I don't live in a state of gratitude as much as I do in a state of relief.

Thank you - truly - for sharing so much of yourself through your writing.

I have looked forward to reading your blogs each day - I will miss them. You have shown everyone that no matter what, we all have something to be thankful for. Hope to see you during the Holidays.
