Had a minor panic attack thanks to the whole 'big empty house, strange noises, and over protective dog that barks at any noise' thing so I'm going to distract myself from the possibility that someone might break in while I'm sleeping. Anyone who follows me on Twitter probably thinks I'm nuts with what I'm posting. Isn't that the point of Twitter? Post random ridiculous-ness?
My mother and stepfather came down from Philly and we had Thanksgiving dinner with the family at my uncle's new place in Hollywood beach. The house is amazing. It's an old house built in 1952 with a very Art Deco feel on the outside and cozy slightly updated bungalow vibe inside. Although the house is considered a historic home my uncle doesn't want to keep it registered as one because once you do it is a HUGE hassle to get any work done on it (and the house is in major need of new windows and doors especially since the original ones are not hurricane proof) They live in walking distance from the beach in an amazing area. I will definitely need to visit them more often!!
Today was all about good food, family, and being happy with what you have. So because it seems like the thing to do and I need to keep myself distracted I present to you a random list of things I am thankful for. In no specific order.
I am thankful for...
The delicious Banana bread my mother brought me from Key West
A dog who warns me when strange noises occur around the house & who can scare people away with his big loud bark.
The possibility to watch any TV series online in one night. (also a curse)
A comfy bed to sleep in
British TV shows
Writers with creative minds
The fact that real hard copy books are still available
My dysfunctional family.... most of it.
All the misfits in the world
The few friends who have stayed by my side through all the madness
Red velvet cake
The few good people left on this planet
and much much more. Life had been... eventful? over the years and sometime I felt/feel like it's all just too much but compared to many other my life problems are nothing. There is always someone who has it so much worse. Try to remember the little good things because if you dwell on the bad , trust me when I say it will destroy you from the inside out and dig you in to a deep dark hole.
Cheers to the misfits, silver ribbon warriors, and anyone fighting a very hard battle no matter what for. Chin up and keep fighting there is still good in this world.
