Thanksgiving Day Post

Pies await!

As I write this I’m sitting in my home office. Outside my window snow is gently falling. Ah, this is the good life. This seems like a good time to try to write a post about things I’m thankful about.

Above all else I’m thankful for Mrs. Abyss. My wife, sweetheart and companion. I’m lucky to have found one person that I truly want to spend the rest of my life with.

I’m thankful I found a new job, even if I’m still not too sure how I feel about it.

I’m thankful I won’t have to fly any time soon. (Random t-shirt idea: “Scan This!”) I think I’ve only flown one round trip in something like the last 15 years.

I’m thankful that my cats are healthy, adorable and a lot of fun.

I’m thankful for having a “small holiday” tomorrow with just 3 or 4 people at home. (You never know what to expect. A gerbil or two just might show up unannounced.) To me quiet days at home with the core family are what holidays are all about.

I’m thankful I don’t have to deal with the bother of being buried in gold.

I’m thankful for this video. It has brought me a lot of joy.

I’m thankful I’m not currently vegetarian. That means turkey this year. Yesssssssss!

And last, but not least, shouts out to all of the people I’ve met and the wonderful friends I’ve made through this humble little blog. I truly appreciate you all.
