Thanksgiving 2008

Ours was a normal quiet one. I slept in, Steven cooked due to him not having to work the prior 3 days. He and Kieran left for Oklahoma last night, me and the boys stayed in. Didn't really feel like traveling. So me and the boys went birthday shopping for Kieran's birthday next week. No way in heck was I going to do it today. People who shop on Black Friday and want to are nuts. I prefer to not have to wait or fight my way through shopping. I will pay a few extra dollars to do so as well.

So here are my thanks...

I am thankful for

-My family
-Their health and my own, including mental health
-My God
-For not losing loved ones this year
-For a job I actually enjoy doing
-Friends and Coworkers
-My Church Family
-For my hobbies, including the derb
-For the nice weather we had yesteday

I could go on, but this is my general list.

I have seen a lot of sad stuff over the last 2 weeks. Some work related, some news related, and some with my friends and family. So I try to take every resonable effort not to take my blessings for granted. And it saddens me even more when I see others continually taking their own for granted. To some extent it angers me beyond belief.

Been awhile since my last blog. Life keeps happening and I keep getting lost in transit. Obama was recently elected President. To bad I am not a betting person, I called this race long before Primaries were even ran. Steven even questioned me on occasion if I was sure. It was never a question to me.

Another thing passed here in Arkansas, the beginning of a state lottery. Another incident where Steven again questioned me. Now I promise this was not intended to be a political post, so now off to my intended thoughts...

I think I am one of millions of people around the world who often wonder what it would be like to have more money than I know what to do with. Many a conversation has been brought up if Ed McMahon ever showed up on our doorstep or if I ever got brave enough to by a lotto ticket and it actually won...

Honestly, I get so annoyed at seeing what celebrities and other rich socialites do with their money. I have never been one for wanting expensive cars or gotti jewels. And honestly I don't understand how someone can have that much money and not give any to charity. It will just have to paid in taxes so you might as well help people with it.

Hands down my money would be sending me and the fam to Ireland. Steven and I have always been in agreement we would like to move there. I think I not only love the idea of the beauty and culture of it, but its simplistic nature. I have discussed this before. But tonight I actually found myself looking for visuals to dream about.

My Irish Cottage Dream.






Small cozy living area.


Irish landscapes.



Maybe one day a trip will suffice...
