Gobble Gobble

I was trying all day today to think about what I'm thankful for this year. Boy, was it a tough one, considering the hell I've been through in the past six months. Honestly, I will be happy to see 2005 over and done with, but for now, we still have to deal with it for a bit longer.

And, to be quite honest, I'm not feeling very thankful right now. Actually, I'm pretty pissed off at the entire world at this point in time. And that's okay, as far as I'm concerned-I'm not going to wax poetic on bullshit that I don't feel right now.

So, tomorrow, when everyone is going on and on about how great it is that family is getting together, blah blah blah, I will be in front of the fire with a nice bottle of Shiraz getting well and truly out of my brains. And I won't feel even remotely bad about it.

Because that's what Thanksgiving is all about-getting pissed, eating lots of food, and passing out on the couch afterwards.


Happy Thanksgiving to all........may your turkeys be moist and that lovely triptophan zone you out.

I found your blog through Thalia. I'm SO sorry for all that you are going through. As I read your post I started to tear up because I could have written's exactly how I'm feeling and it sounds like what I've been through. I'll keep lurking to see how things go for you.

I hope you have a good chilled-out time with that bottle of wine. Thinking of you. (Btw in other parts of the world we actually have to work today!)

we'll be having PLENTY of Shiraz, right there with you.

Funny point - I came home yesterday, having bought 4 bottles of wine (for 6 people, mind you, one of whom doesn't even drink, for Pete's sake! - and one of the bottles is the BIG bottle of Yellow Tail Shiraz...)

Narda laughs, and laughs, and laughs. I look down at the wine rack - she had apparantly done the EXACT. SAME. THING....

so if you don't get sloshed enough? Let's have some more together this weekend....


and ps - even though we are BOTH in SUCK ASS positions right now.... I AM grateful that I met YOU because of my infertility.
