I am thankful that I was a guest at someone else's holiday dinner table because now I don't have to torture anyone with Gawd-awful concoctions using left over turkey.
Moo Shu Turkey recipe via Slate. Woeful is the state of the modern world when the focus on leftover turkey is not to use as much of the bird as possible, but to disguise it and foist it off on unwilling dinner participants. I read somewhere that the oil crisis will lead to a food crisis and that our children will be malnourished because of it. They'll be boiling the turkey bones for succor then, won't they?
I am thankful that I don't need a 42" TV or a $49.00 DVD player so that 4am found me warm and cozy in bed instead of elbowing grannies out of the way in Walmart.
I spent my Friday shopping at the Dollar Tree and Tuesday morning, both uncrowded and filled with stuff I wanted. So it was more of a Beige Friday for me. Bonus: on a scale of 1-10, Sami was 5 interested in Tuesday morning so I predict future shopping harmony, a rare occurance.
I am thankful that we covered 250 miles on Thursday morning and Friday afternoon and were not confronted with any major traffic issues along the way.
Also, the wheels of my car did not fall off during the trip, which you would think they were going to judging by the racket they are making now. I think it must be the rotors or the axle or the suspension or the drive train or the chassis. Something like that.
So, all in all, I am thankful.
