Enough already!

I have been having a great Thanksgiving weekend. I got my flu shot, and my butt is sore, and I got the stitches out of my head which hurt worse than having them put in -
But I am thankful I won't get sick this winter, and my head's healed, so that's all right.
Enough with this complaining already!
It's raining - the dogs get mud all over the floor when they come in.
But I'm thankful to have two such nice dogs, with lovely waggy tails and loving eyes.
I can't seem to get any writing done, especially with the kids home this weekend. But I'm thankful to have my children with me, and the writing can be done later.
Tonight I'm going to a friend's house for dinner, and I'm thankful to have such a wonderful friend who lives so close. I have other wonderful friends who live far away, but I miss them terribly, along with my family. But at least I have people I miss terribly - can you imagine not missing anyone?
Winter is coming and my house is old and drafty - but at least the roof doesn't leak and I'm thankful to live in such a nice village. The garbage men just came around for their Christmas bonus (already!) but I'm thankful they come at all - so there.
Well, enough already with the thanks - but no, there is one more! I'm thankful for everyone who stops by to read my blog -

I am thankful to read such interesting blogs!
I too am struggling a bit with writing this time of year. I finished edits for my agent two weeks ago and am going back to my other projects but I am distracted. Excited. Flustered.
I find myself organizing cupboards instead of writing.
Monday is the very last day of school.
Good. I can say, "After Monday!"
I love procrastination.

Sorry about your sore butt and your sore head, but glad to hear you’re generally on the mend. :-)

I liked this line because it’s so very true: “But at least I have people I miss terribly - can you imagine not missing anyone?”

It’s always a pleasure to read your blog, Sam, because your posts are interesting as well as charming. I’ve loved learning about your family, about your life in France, and I love the beautiful photos you post too.

Thanks guys!
Orion, procrastination is my middle name, I think. (If not my first name sometimes...)
Daisy - I love reading your blog too - it Always cheers me up! So fun!

I have family outside of Paris. My mother's family came from France. Everybody in my family has visited except for me! If my book does well I'm over there!
