I'm thankful for:
The beer our landlord left for us as a reward for keeping the house nice.
The great dinner we had at Ken's dad's house last night, especially the delicious cherries and chocolate dessert his step-mom made. And for the opportunity to play with his little sisters. I miss babysitting.
The snow. And the forest preserve by Ken's apartment, which glittered yesterday.
The fact that Jewel Osco is right across the street, and offers thirty minute photo developing.
The Afghan restaurant on Devon, that left a menu on my doorstep this morning, and provides free delivery.
The cell phone my dad still pays for, which allowed me to talk to him, and my mom, and my brother, and my sister, and my grandpa, and my aunt-Mary, and my cousin (in a complicated way) Lynette, before they sat down for Thanksgiving dinner.
The fact that the circus is coming to town! We're going to try to go this weekend.
The blankets my mom bought me when she visited. My room is freezing.
The four day weekend, and the end of the academic quarter.
The public library, high speed internet, the Chicago Tribune, and CLTV.
My mom and dad, my sister and brother, all my aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents, and the new family I'm going to be getting, and the man I'm going to marry.
