I’m not one to blather about holidays.

Not even Thanksgiving, though I like it better than Christmas. But this Thanksgiving is turning out much, much better than I ever could have imagined.

  • Four-and-a-half days away from the office.
  • New upgraded computer to replace one that just crashed.
  • Local computer guru was able to salvage my Nova Scotia pics and other files off the crashed one. (Mad props and a shout-out to Keith Thelen of Kanabec Systems.)
  • Unexpected and timely gifts.
  • My sister Kathy got a job after nearly a year of searching.
  • I got to share turkey dinner with wonderful people.
  • I get to spend three mornings doing the thing I love most.
  • Best post-Thanksgiving Day breakfast, ever.
  • Other amazing news I won’t share, but is known to a select few.

And though that is all quite awesome enough, and this next one is nowhere as significant, I just found out:

I probably should buy some lottery tickets today. I know it’s as maudlin as hell, but it seems like there’s a lot for me to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Holidays haven’t always been a barrel of laughs. And many of 2012’s developments have sucked, quite frankly… with a few exceptions… so I’m most thankful for reasons to anticipate a turnaround in the works.

Thanks, Big Guy. Always got my back.
