Things to be thankful for...and some not...

I am a day early but that is because I will probably try my best to avoid touching a computer tomorrow. I am getting up unnecessarily early to run the Naperville Turkey Trot 5K with my family in the morning which means I will not be partying tonight like most of the nation. I actually rarely do go out for Black Wednesday, I prefer to sit at home and drink while I bake and get ready for Turkey day. I love the holidays, I wish that we were doing things the usual way going to my mother's place but one of my cousins called having it at his house first and so I am stuck going there. Not that I don't love my extended family but when you put that many Puerto Ricans in a house together...well...yea it can get really loud. Anyway on to the thankful and not so thankful list. 

- I am thankful that I am here for another Thanksgiving 
-I am thankful for my amazing parents, brother, sister and nephew(they make my heart happy)
-I am thankful for my amazing friends and all the emotional support they have given me this year 
-I am thankful for my job however frustrating it might be 
-I am thankful for blogging and all the amazing things I have been introduced to in the blogging world
-So So thankful for internet w/out it my life would be a mess
-I am thankful that I am finally starting to feel better about my decisions this year
-I am thankful that I dont' have any crazy things I need to buy on Black Friday so no standing in line
--I am not so thankful that this is the first Thanksgiving in over 5 years I am single
(I rarely got to actually spend the holidays w/The Boy because of his work but we always enjoyed them)
--I am not so thankful that I will not get to spend this holiday feeling a certain way because of some decisions I made this year.

Thank goodness there is much more to be thankful for than not. 
I hope everyone out there has an amazing Thanksgiving. 
Eat a ton and hug everyone you love, be thankful for it all :)
