thankful

I hate to be all cliched and write about what I am thankful for this year, but I'm going to do it anyway.I am thankful for (in no particular order): *my family - even though they drive me nuts sometimes *my health - which I often take for granted *my job - I am lucky to do something that I love *John - he puts up with my crap, eats whatever I cook him, and does the dishes! *my friends - I've known most of them for 15 years...that's more than half my life! *a roof over my head and (good) food to eat *my dog - even though she drives me nuts, she makes me laugh, and she continues to love me no matter how many times I get mad at her for stealing things off the counter (yes, she's a bad dog...I know). *wool, fleece, and down - they are always on hand to keep me warm! *the internet - because without it I would be very bored when I have to stay up all night *vacation time - I've had some pretty awesome trips this year! *coffee - it tastes good, it keeps me awake, and it's a good excuse to hang out and catch up with good friends (and my family) *snow - it makes winter bearable (and it usually means that it's not frigid, which has not been the case lately...snow at 5 degrees, seriously?) I know there's more, but I haven't finished my coffee yet this "morning" so my brain is a little fuzzy...
