Belated Thankful Blog

I’ve been meaning to blog about our wonderful Turkey Day in Philly all week, so here goes nothing.

Our trip started off with us running through the airport. We thought we’d be late for our flight, but when we made it to the airport earlier than anticipated, we stopped for dinner. And then, just as we were finishing up, we heard our names called over the loudspeaker. Oops. We ran. All the way across the airport. Neither one of us is in good enough shape to be doing such a thing. But! This provides evidence in support of my theory that once you check your bags, they will search for you – they won’t just ditch you.

The important thing is that we made it! Thursday we went to Thanksgiving mass with J’s immediate family, and I actually understood it! Even though it was in Catholic (and not, for example, doggy barks or mime), I knew many of the prayers, etc. I was psyched. Thursday afternoon, we went to Jason’s Aunt Elaine’s for a Thanksgiving Feast. It was delicious, and also very fun, thanks to Jason’s large and very hilarious family.

The rest of the weekend was a blur – it went by so fast. Highlights included: attending J’s cousin’s soccer game, meeting Scout (J’s cousin’s dog), going out to dinner with the Ross’ (and Sean), hanging out with J’s cousins, bowling with some of J’s friends from high school, and playing with the Heine’s. Did I leave anything out? I hope not.

Pictures are here, although I didn’t take very many:

Thanksgiving 2007

A glimpse at what I’m thankful for this year:

  • Family: I already have one super-cool family, but in 2008, I’ll get a second one! What would I do without them?
  • Health: my own and that of those around me
  • Jason, even if he has scheduled October 4, 2008 as the end of his life on his Google Calendar
  • Barley
  • The roof (roofs?) over my head
  • Having a job that I can show up to whenever I want, leave whenever I want, and wear jeans while I’m there (even if it sometimes means doing a tremendous amount of work at home).
  • My aunt and uncle for letting me live with them AGAIN! And for putting out a delicious home-cooked meal every night. I am certainly going to miss that when I move out!
  • Living in Minnesota… Snow! We’re supposed to get SNOW soon!
  • Bowling!
  • Friends! (if only I could convince them all to move to MN)!

All-in-all, I am a lucky kid.

    Hi, Jen!
    I’m so glad you had a good time; we had a good time also.
