A slightly belated giving of thanks

So yesterday I was contemplating the list of things for which I am thankful:

1. I’m thankful for my husband. What a change from my “starter marriage.” ‘Nuf said.

2. I’m thankful for my son…and for the fact that he doesn’t live with me anymore, even if it is a bit nerve-wracking having him out on his own…

3. I’m thankful for my cats, and the grandcat…and for the fact that my step-mother-in-law is violently allergic to cats so she will never come over here for a visit…

4. I’m thankful for my closest friends, or as DH calls them, the SoCs (Sisters of Choice)…though I wish they lived closer so we could spend holidays with each other instead of our more-or-less dysfunctional families…

5. I’m thankful for my job…even when it drives me crazy…

6. I’m thankful for my cozy snug little condo…though one more room would be nice…
