Happy Thanksgiving*!! Hope everyone had a wonderful day with friends and family. This year was the first Thanksgiving without my mom, so it was super sad. And it was my first Thanksgiving in the US since the early/mid 90's. Ana, Aaron and I went over to Penny's house where we were 3 of 18 people. It turned out wonderful with lots of happy laughing moments.
I found out early in the week that the night before Thanksgiving is the busiest night of the year at bars and clubs. It didn't say why, so I just thought that because everyone was home, seeing family, that they needed alcohol to deal. But apparently it is because people are in their hometowns and want to catch up with friends.... I like my theory much better. It makes sense, I thought about drinking yesterday.
This year I am thankful for my parents, my brothers, my Picasso and Mickey, and my family in general. I am also thankful for the ability to go to grad school and get an advanced degree when there are places in this world where girls aren't even taught to read.
*I like to call this day Happy Dead Bird Day, Happy Animal Carcass Day and others of such nature.
