And thus the holiday season begins...

So Happy Turkey Day everyone! This is my first post after the Thanksgiving holiday and so I feel it is appropriate to talk about my trip!

I left Atlanta on Wednesday and trucked all the way to my hometown of Lumberton, MS. It's a small town about 20 minutes south of Hattiesburg. It was dark when I arrived, having stopped in Heidelberg, MS to visit some college friends of mine for dinner and to see their baby (and their twins in the oven..and no I ain't talking about Hansel and Gretel!).

The first day back I helped my Mom remove some debris from the house and rip apart the deck fencing which was destroyed. Then we went to my uncle's house and had a proper southern Thanksgiving, complete with cornbread stuffing, turkey, and cranberry sauce (and WAY too many deserts to choose from). After that, I spent some quality time with my nephews and nieces running around the park. That night my nephew decided to stay at my Mom's so I had to go pick him up and we just ended up playing with legos and watching TV.

The trip home was fortunately uneventful (other than the hour and a half delay near Tuscaloosa, AL because of some wreck) and when I got into Atlanta Saturday night...I totally crashed.

Sunday I think I pretty much played World of Warcraft (I have to go buy this game fact I'm going to go buy it on my way to the gym tee hee).

Monday I ran a few errands (I had taken off in case I wanted to stay in MS...but I didn't...) and went to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I must say I was very impressed. Of course they left alot out...but the book was HUUUUGE.

So now I think it's time to make a simple list of the things I am thankful for (Geez...I feel like I'm in elementary school).

I am thankful for my family (both blood and friends).
I am thankful for the gifts the Universe has bestowed upon me... mind (agile, quick, and creative) body (and the drive to build it at the gym) inner spirit (the soul of a dolphin in the body of a man)
I am thankful for my dog, Xena. Without her, who would I pour my heart out to?
I am thankful for my awesome job where I can be myself and contribute.
I am thankful for my incredible neighbors and my home.
I am thankful for the opportunities that life has presented me and for the evolutions that have taken place because of them.
