Thanksgiving Blessings

Hello everyone!

I'm gonna be very grateful here...you'll see!

My oven has rust holes the size of quarters...(I know! Why did I clean it???)

The dishwasher just broke...

The beach chairs and coolers are still in my dining room...

The contractor finally arrived to rip out and repair my deck, just in time for---um, winter?

My Jeep needs an oil change...now! [or so the dashboard readout says...]

Turkeys still don't come with six drumsticks...

I can't find cornbread Stove Top stuffing anywhere ( 6 stores! Is it no longer made? It's my fav for the beginning of my stuffing creations.)

I have a migraine...

Oh and I hate to cook!

But nevermind, I am very thankful because, who knows...

things could be a lot worse, right?

I am so very thankful for my wonderful children and dear friends---live in this wonderful country. At the beach....

  1. Hang in there!.....LOL We have a foot of snow, wind chill at -15, down to one car, and I hate to cook too! But life goes on and whether we are at the beach or in the mountains, Life is Good! Happy Thanksgiving! Kit

  2. It *could* be worse... you could have fire/wind/flood damage or be missing your house...
    Sounds like our house the past year or so. Everything was about the same age so it's all dying at the same time. I'm afraid the stove will be next - and that will be a huge pain because it's a built-in of a style not made anymore!

  3. It seems like Father Guido Sarducchi from the old Saturday Night Live show was right, "If it's not one thing, it's another."

    I want to see the six legged turkey when you catch him!!!

    Happiest of Thanksgivings!
