Things I'm Thankful For

I'm thankful for a lot of things today. First, I'm thankful for Thanksgiving day. I can be pretty grumpy and whiney a lot of the time, so I'm grateful there's a day that forces me to think of things to be thankful for.

I am very grateful for my family. I'm grateful for my brother and sister and niece Andi and nephew Barney. I'm also thankful for my sister-in-law who did the hard work bringing my niece and nephew into the world.

On my way up for Thanksgiving, I called my brother's house.  Andi answered the phone. She was really excited to hear from me. I'm grateful she's still like that even though she recently became a teenager. She asked me what I wanted for dinner and almost immediately added "Do you want pizza????". I told her  "If you want to use me as an excuse to get pizza for dinner, go for it!".

I'm grateful for the chance to be the cool uncle that conspires with his niece. FULL DISCLOSURE: My motives were not entirely selfless. Pizza for dinner sounded like a pretty cool idea :)

There are small things I'm grateful for. Every year at the beginning of Nablopomo I always go into a long spiel about how November is always such a busy thing for me. I tend to forget that November is also the month when everybody gets an extra hour. I'm obviously not as grateful for that as I should be, but today I am.

I'm thankful that livejournal has had some pretty good writer's block questions this November, which made doing Nablopomo a little easier.
