Sometimes you have to dig deep

Kidlings dancing

Let’s see. No parents, no Sister #3 and her family, no Chromey v Chromey. . . it’s hard to find reason to give thanks.

Even though they are feuding, all my family members are alive and breathing, so for that I am thankful. I woke up this morning singing “I Just Want the Girl in the Blue Dress to Keep on Dancing” and for that I am thankful.

Unbitter aside: so I’ve already talked about how Marching Bands make me cry, well right now on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, they have the Viriginia Tech marching band marching and then whatsherface from the Today show tells us, “They are marching in missing man formation to honor their fallen students.” And then you can see the actual spot in the marching band. Not a dry eye in this house. I think I even saw Paco cry.

Now Lifehouse is singing on the US Postal Service’s float, and I just wonder how they decided that would be a good career move. And, how do you get that gig? Does like the Postmaster General call you up and ask if you got a gig on Thanksgiving? And really, why isn’t the Postal Service on that float singing “From Such Great Heights?”

So it appears that even in the downy down down dumps life is amazing and hilarious and for that I am thankful.

Oh yes, I almost forgot, happy thanksgiving to all you and yours, darling ones. For you, I give thanks every day.

(oh hell yes — Good Charlotte are singing on some oil company’s float. I need to make a note to watch the Macy’s thanksgiving day parade more often.)

    One of my daughters had what I thought was a cold. Until she couldn’t breath. I got her to emergency where they suctioned out her trachea and then kept her for 3 days in case they needed to do it again. They discharged her yesterday and I had the chance to bitch to myself in the kitchen that I was doing all the work while my kids (living!) and my husband (also living) watched some dumb Will Farrell movie. Hopefully not so drmatic, but something will remind your sisters what matters. Meanwhile, hang in there.

    Life IS amazing and hilarious. Sometimes we just get so caught up in our own control dramas that we fail to notice. The Universal Mind is always laughing. Listen! You can hear it when you turn off your sorrow.
