I'm Supposed to be Festive? Ugh...

Happy Paid Day Off to Watch Cowboys Football!!!!
 
Is there any other reason to get excited for this day?
 
Hardly not... dry turkey, nasty ass pumpkin flavored things, runny cranberries. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! And don't even get me started on the total ridiculousness of shopping the sales tomorrow. Are the sales really that good that you have to camp out at 4am? I hardly think so.
 
All that being said, Puff and I are about to hit the road to Atlanta to spend a few days with The MIL. Trust me, I'm less than excited about the entire scenario. However, I'll put on my happy face. On the bright side, we're supposed to go out to eat today, which means a wider assortment of foods, so hopefully there will be something I can eat. (Oh no wait! Since I first wrote this draft, I've come to find out that The MIL forgot to make us dinner reservations! Thanksgiving at McDonalds... here we come!) And yes, that dreaded shopping. Tomorrow marks my second ever (in my entire almost 30 years of existence) that I have ever gone shopping on Black Friday. Again, less than thrilled. Although I guess they just assumed that since I survived last year, they would once again test my sanity and resiliance against the public and mass stupidity.
 
Am I missing anything? Oh yeah... what am I thankful for? Well, Cowboys football, is probably numero uno today. (Did I just say that out loud?) Of course I meant that my husband and family are tops on my list! In all sincerity... my family, my friends, my health, my life, my opportunities are all amazing and yes, I am truly thankful for them.
 
I'd ask you what you're thankful for, but apparently my readers are slack-asses since the last "Reader Participation Day" failed miserably. If you feel so compelled, leave a comment. But mostly, just enjoy the time with family (say hi to my family if you see them) and cross your fingers for a Cowboys win! (Because yes, really, that is the only redeeming quality of this holiday!)
