For the second year in a row, I chose to spend Thanksgiving away from home. Not because I don’t love my parents dearly, but rather because the drive down I-95 home is absolutely miserable on Thanksgiving weekend. I don’t do well when it comes sitting in stand-still traffic.

So this year I ended up going t my roommate’s (Nick) parent’s place right outside of Charlottesville. Not only do I love this plantation house, I also love his mom so it’s been a great 3 days thus far. Sure, I miss not being home with my family, but this is a great next-best-thing.

And I’ve realized, that while I’ve complained a lot lately, I truly do have an awful lot to be thankful for. So while life is far from where I’d like it to be, I really do have it better than a lot of people out there.

That said, thank you for reading this blog. For being supportive and being a “friend” to me. I love this blogging community and I don’t know what I’d do without this place to vent sometimes. I thoroughly enjoy reading about your lives as well. Thank you — you’ve helped me make it through 2010 with my sanity in check and I’m truly grateful.

Awful, but always funny

Until next time…
