Home for the Holidays


I love Thanksgiving. My friend Megan put it best, "no presents to buy or wrap, no cards to write or shopping to do - just eating and family". In the spirit of the season, here are my top ten things that I am thankful for this Thanksgiving:

1. My family - I love and adore my family. They are everything to me. I could list them all, but this post would be pages long.

2. My mom - I adore my whole family, but my mom is the best. As moms are wont to do, she would do anything in her ability for me. She also is great company on loooong car rides and she is an expert at hanging curtains.

3. My cat, Jack - I have moved him from Boston to Louisiana to North Carolina in the span of nine months and he has been a trooper. His purr is magical.

4. My new job - so far so good. This is a great opportunity at a fantastic institution of higher education.

5. My friends - e-mail, myspace, and facebook are great tools to help me stay in touch with all of them. To the friends I've had the longest - Teresa and Michaela, we've gone from letters to emails to blogs and myspace, but its been about 15 years, and sometimes I feel like it was yesterday.

6. Tivo - the best invention ever...thank you Kristen for introducing me to this fantastic piece of technology.

7. Music - all kinds, all styles; whether live, recorded, on stage, in the car, music soothes my soul.

8. Books - classics, brit lit, chick lit, history, tsars, kings, queens, biographies, trashy romance, true crime...I'll read it all.

9. TV on DVD - since I have no cable at the moment (it will be here tomorrow), I am working my way through The West Wing, seasons 1-5, to be followed by The Office, seasons 1&2, and Grey's Anatomy, seasons 1-3.

10. Chocolate - the Aztecs were geniuses...the Belgians are artists. It doesn't matter what type - swiss miss hot chocolate, Godiva, imported European milk chocolate...it's all good.
