Thanksgiving Thoughts

Before I start the baking, I wanted to list a few things I am thankful for. Everyday I give thanks for my husband, because without him I don't know where I'd be. If I hadn't had the bad experiences that I've had in my life, I would never have met him, but I still can't make myself completely grateful for some of this shit I've gone through. But, here's a list of things I'm thankful for. It started out as 10 and evolved to 20.

1. My husband.
2. Paper books and the authors who write them
3. Music
4. Kindle
5. My four furry children
6. The internet
7. My writing, and my imagination that fuels it.
8. Hope that things will get better
9. A day job that I love (most of the time!)
10. The First Amendment and all my freedoms as an American
11. My individuality and creaticity
12. My Wiccan nature/faith/spirituality
13. Women everywhere
14. Zombie movies
15. Trash TV and soap operas because where would I be without my not-so-guilty pleasures?
16. My Master's Degree
17. Chocolate
18. Food
19. our warm woodstove
20. Magic and Faerieland, and the fact that despite everything, I still Believe...

And a special thanks to South Park for creating the Alien Thanksgiving episode because The Truth is Out There! I have some flash fiction based on this that I'd like to share if I can get around to posting it later.

So cold

I have never been this cold before, inside and out. It's hard to think, it's hard to process a thought. There's no physical heat...
