did you survive thanksgiving with the family...

well hopefully everyone had a great day today with someone you love and gave some thanks. If you think you have nothing to be thankful for, well then just consider that just by living in this country you're already richer than 85% of the rest of the world's population. Today I was thankful to be home with my family, employed, healthy, and free in this country.
overall great time today.... helping my folks out by getting tables set up, having 4 siblings with spouses, 13 niece and nephews, and 4 of their either bf, gf, or spouses, one aunt.. etc you get the picture..lots of people. lots of food... afterwards playing some games, the kind where we're in a big circle and clapping our legs and hands and either counting back and forth to people assigned numbers.... or we throw an object back and forth across the circle of everyone then throw up to 15 things in the same pattern over and over at the same time....stuff like that.
talked and chatted til everyone left, watched the Texas game tonight in High Def and man I have to love my folk's high def tv with both teams in white pants... so nice. ha
crashing now and spending the rest of the weekend doing whatever comes up next and relaxing... ahhhhh. NYC next weekend so hitting the gym all weekend definitely. :)
hope all enjoy a great long weekend.
