Thanksmas

It's Thanksmas Eve and I am apprehensively sitting here next to my daughter trying to figure out how to change the font on my blog... to make a setting so stimulating that the words I write will not matter and you, gentle reader, will be mesmerized and not notice that I am Insecure about all this and basically have nothing of note to say. Save that ... on this Thanksmas Eve, I have two beautiful little girls sleeping in the bunk bed upstairs and three cats all trying to act as if the world was their oyster, and my daughter is having a small panic attack about the condition of their vehicle .... and with all that going on, not to mention that my very saucy husband was a poor sport at Catan, there is quite a lot of fodder for conversation. But all that being said, we have a lot to be thankful for and tomorrow we will stuff our faces to mark an event that none of us actually have a right to mark, considering that we are Canadian.

WHATEVER! whatever... so do I have to become a blogger too? Can't we just be content with good old-fashioned e-mail? Rachel seems to draw the best out of you - didn't want you to age that fast, but sure makes me feel young and beautiful - even sexy. But where you still got me beat is with your altogether refreshing and slightly 'other' sense of humor. Keep it coming old girl. I'm also grateful this does not seem to be about deep - any depth I thought I had got sucked up in the events of the day - I too am lleft mostly with wrinkles and cross-eyed!! Mary

Ah, this reminds me of a certain expat Thanksgiving when we put a Candian flag in the window, opened the door and sang to the top of our lungs, "Oh Canada" for all America to hear! Happy Thanxmas. H
