A lot to be thankful for this year. Despite larger setbacks in foreign and domestic affairs…..the CI compound stands in good order, ready for the Zombie Apocalypse.
Until then, I’m thankful for having both of our beautiful, smart Princesses home for the long weekend. The home feels whole again.
I’m thankful that I’m not deployed again this holiday season.
I’m thankful for having a wife who is a partner my soul mate and my best friend. One who doesn’t conform to social norms and conventions just for their sake.……and who’s just as ferocious as I am when the dander is up. It doesn’t hurt that she’s still a smoldering hottie.
And I’m thankful for 57 pounds of good-boy puppy (Loki) for us to love this year……after losing our good girl (Molly) last year.
So today brings putting on the hiking kilt for a jaunt up the Appalachian Trail, followed by some custom pizzas and wine.
Round out the weekend with some quality time with my chainsaw and a bonfire……and hoping I don’t have any calls from work.
Life is pretty good. I need to stop and enjoy it a little more…..
