today

I realized I didn't list the things I'm thankful for yesterday. This is because one thing tops the list in a very dominating way: the fact that I'm not in grad school. Honestly. I wake up nearly every morning thankful that I am not in grad school. I come home, and I'm thankful that I don't have homework. It's cold, and I'm thankful that I don't have to walk through it to class. Most people are thankful for their families, shelter, food, whatnot. For me it's definitely the lack of grad school.

I am thankful for my family, don't get me wrong. I'm especially thankful for marc in the winter because he's warm and snuggly... which is good because he's not so thankful for me in the winter, I'm cold and whiney. But in the summer I'm happy and freckly and he's really excited about that. But in the summer he's sweaty and whiney so I'm not as thankful for that. We're pretty much even. and i'm also thankful for the rest of my family... mom, dad, and sister... for being smart people who are never boring. and the inlaws for being nice, and making thanksgiving dinner yesterday.

I'm thankful for my website! Damn, the rainbow quiz has taken off! Yesterday 6,700 people had nothing better to do on a holiday than take that silly quiz! We still have no one joining the forum which makes me sad, I'm not sure what the forum has to do to get new members these days. But it's a record-breaking month in terms of unique page visitors these days which makes me happy.
