Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating today! I woke up sick as a dog, I had been throwing up all night and I woke up at quarter to 10am from a phone call from my mom asking when I would be downstairs to help her with dinner.

I jumped in the shower and got dressed in my Sunday best. A yellow plaid pencil skirt and a black sleeveless blouse and pointy black flats. I didn’t put my make up on because I didn’t feel like it but at least I was presentable.

Diego and I made up from our fight from yesterday and he called me this morning saying he was still at work, but he was going to deliver groceries to his mom and sister and then go home. Then he was going to bring Poncho to my house because today is Poncho’s first birthday. It’s kind of funny because his back legs look like turkey legs since he is so boney. We call him our little turkey so it makes sense his birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year. Diego bought him a turkey leg to eat and I bet he will be grateful and eat it all up.

My sister and her husband came over around 10:30 and we chatted for about a hour. They went over to his parents’ house for brunch and my sister would be back later on while her husband plays disc golf with his brothers in the afternoon.

I retreated back to the lair to write this and lay down. Not only am I nauseous, but my interstitial cystitis (bladder disease) is really flaring up. Lots of pain and burning and all that terrible stuff. I just want to sleep it off but I should try to help my mom cook here in a second.

I got word that Diego has tomorrow off of work so I can go to his house after we have second Thanksgiving with his family. It will be a long day, but hopefully it will be worth it.

I am thankful and grateful for all of you and the support I have gotten over the past couple of years here at Precarious Aquarius. I am thankful for family and friends. I am thankful for a forgiving God.

Much love to you all,
