Giving Thanks

Saturday night. And I'm sitting at a Starbucks at 9:38PM, so weird.

I'm waiting for Sabrina, going to see her show she directed at Second City. Wasting time. But not, actually just got tons of work done.

So yay, the Channel 2 piece came out, it's pretty awesome. It's here if you want to check it. I think it's really cute! I love the "after chatter" when they talk about the pedway at the end of the piece. That's where the best sound bites come in. Anyway, this HELPS, a lot, as does the Wall Street Journal piece. The Pedway is going pretty great till the 1st of the year, then I'll nab something else, right? RIGHT!

We went to John's parents in Wisco. This counts as our Thanksgiving and we had a really good time. John's parents live on acres and acres of land in Fremont. They're house is hidden, the second you walk out the door you can't even see the house anymore. It's dark, and quiet and the most beautiful mid-western beauty. Remo loves it and is alternately scared of the noises and smells. Shoot, there are turkeys wandering around. Remo would poop himself to be able to get after a turkey.

It's nice to get out of the city and ride in a car with my husband, we yammer away, like we haven't been together for almost 8 years (whoosh!). I love it.

And there are children. 7 and 3. Whoosh.

And food. Turkey. Mashed potatoes. 3 kinds of pie.

So good.

Things are good. Seems like times are in an upswing. I'm doing my best not to freak the shit out that something horrible is right around the corner. Because that's morose...and I'm awesome.

Quieter week next week. Lots of work. Lots of tea.

You ARE awesome!

And don't forget, when you're busy next week and all, to look at your calendar for an appointment at Steak n' Shake.

Fremont? Really? I grew up nearby there outside of New London. My cousins lived in Fremont. My aunt & uncle still do.

Melisa, I am almost ready for Steak and Shake, I'm thinking in between Thanks and Christmas?

Rachelle! Yes totally, I bet your aunt and uncle actually know John's parents, right? Eiberger is the name...
