Is all the turkey gone yet?

I had a great Thanksgiving and I hope you did too. No pictures (I know, I'm bad) but I did enjoy the holiday with Nana and Uncle Bob and his girlfriend Kelly and her kids along with my friend John. Kelly did all the cooking and it was Delish! Still got some leftovers today too! I always have a lot to be thankful for but some things that come to mind this year is that I have a JOB! This small town has gotten hit a lot. I'm really lucky to be here taking care of Nana in a home that I have always known. I'm glad Nana is back home and feeling like her old self again too. Every day I'm thankful for sobriety and God and His love and forgiving grace. Without those things I have nothing. Also the friends that AA and scrapping have brought me. I mean, who knew that I would meet so many great friends on the Internet. Or from scrapping! Well, really, it all comes down to the life I lead today and the person I am in this moment and the journey I've taken. Life is pretty sweet right now and for that I am eternally grateful.

So I saw this list on a site about the things you have done in your life and thought I would share. The things in bold are the things I have done. Some of them I would never do! LOL A few I hope to never do or have happen again. And some of them I need to get busy on :)

  1. I can't really tell what is bold and not. What a cool list though. I bet I could come up with a few things too, but since I have never been anywhere "really" cool, it would not be as interesting. lol.
