thank you...thank you

I realized the other day that the year was over. Even though we were lucky and he was home a few weeks early, it didn't hit me until a few days ago....we all survived our year apart. We survived and he's home with us.

Last year I probably wasn't the greatest company to have around. The Child and I got up and went about our normal Thanksgiving day routine, but it all felt so flat...almost pointless. Sure, we had a bunch of great food to eat for days and days, but it just wasn't the same.

This year we aren't cooking. I'm still not sure how we feel about that but we were invited to Michelle's house and decided to take her up on it. In a few weeks we'll have packers and movers swarming all over the house here in the attempt to get us all moved. It just made sense to not be cooking a week before that happens.

I have family that we love and miss horribly. We have a house that we're going to be able to live in soon. We have a child that, for the most part, is a pretty good kid. We have good friends who we are going to miss horribly when we leave here. I have a husband who is, right this very second, snoring on the couch. What sweet noise after a year of silence...and for that, I am thankful.
