THANKS & GIVING

It's not yet Thanksgiving in America, since it's still the middle of the night there, and actually it's not yet Thanksgiving for us either, since in Sweden, there IS no Thanksgiving, and our personal celebration is taking place on Saturday, which means we're just using this fine tradition as an excuse to eat too much and party with a bunch of fun friends. Ain't nothing wrong with that.

Everyone else is making lists of things they're thankful for, and I feel compelled to follow. Baaa gobble gobble

Things I'm thankful for this year
  • a husband who loves me and doesn't give me (too) much shit about the time I spend on the computer

  • my 2 happy healthy funny loving children

  • my mother, sister and brother, for continually reminding me that family really is more important than anything else

  • my friends, both offline and online, who continually make me think, smile, care, and laugh

  • having met galestorm, who in addition to being an interesting and funny person, has been responsible for kick-starting my artistic life again, and giving me the incentive, after reading her ENTIRE journal, to start my own. You're my journal-writing role model.

  • inspiring and hilarious writers and artists and journals

  • rants by dooce, Witt & Wisdom, ozswede, among others

  • this job that not only gives me freedom and creative challenges, despite its drawbacks, but money as well

  • the ability to type and read REALLY fast

  • the ability and health to somehow manage to do most of the things I want to do each day

  • and too much more that is ultimately only interesting to me
