Be Thankful For This Day

Every year November rolls around & people flock to Facebook each day to say one thing they're thankful for.  I did not do this.  Partly because I find it annoying.  As a general rule it seems that the only people that post these are those that are mostly negative the rest of the year.  Also, you should be thankful EVERYDAY not just the days in November leading up to Thanksgiving.  However, about a week in I decided to make a list for myself, mostly because I'm working on a memories jar for my 25th year on this planet.  

1. Happy hour at Wings N More with awesome friends.
2. Having friends who are willing to call me while I'm on an awful date so that I can end it.
3. Mr. Fireman coming to my rescue yet again by allowing me to park my car at his house while I'm in MN.
4. Mr. Fireman finally watching the newest episode of The Walking Dead so that I would have someone to talk about it with.

6. The school police officer who let me in when I got back to work from Subway during lunch because the back door was locked & I hadn't signed out.
7. Saving over $50 on my flight home for Christmas, my students being well behaved all day, & Mr. Fireman texting me out of the blue just to talk when I was starting to believe I really was the only one putting in any effort.
