I'm So Thankful!

Gobble, gobble everypug! I love Thanksgiving because my favorite thing to do is eat. I plan on eating from dawn til dusk. You can find me tomorrow in bed recovering and just a little bit heavier than I was yesterday. That's what the holidays are all about, right?

I have so much to be thankful for this year. I am so lucky to have such great parents that take care me no matter what. I admit that I'm a little spoiled and that some times I'm a pain in the butt, but Mom and Dad wouldn't trade me for anything in the world. And for that I'm am most thankful.

I'm thankful Dad's health scare was quickly resolved and that he's on the road to recovery. Things could have been much worse and I'm making sure he sticks to his lifestyle program so that I will have him around for a very long time. He's my best bud and he loves me unconditionally.


I'm thankful Mom is mom. She may be a little strange to some people, but she's really the best. She's definitely a one of a kind and that's why I love her. She does everything for me and really helps me with my blog. I don't know what I would do without her because she loves me like no one else does. I'm her baby, her only child, and I couldn't ask for more.

I'm thankful more people are switching to a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Recycling and composting figures are up this year and that makes me smile. More and more people are realizing the impact (positive and negative) of their actions and making changes to do more with less. We still have a long way to go, but I'm hopeful for the future.

Even though I started my blog last year, it wasn't until this year that I visited some blogs, said hi, and introduced myself. Just let me say that my life hasn't been the same since. I've made so many great friends through blogging and everyone has welcomed me with open paws. I've laughed with you, cried with you, and celebrated with you this year, and I'm forever grateful for these experiences. I couldn't have asked for a better group of friends and on this Thanksgiving I give thanks to you for being you.

Hey Hank! I'm getting my second wind and am ready for a PBR with my sandwich. Yummy! I think I've gained at least a pound today.

I'm glad your mom likes my house. Can you tell I decorated it myself? Mom likes to take all the credit but it was all me!

Hey Salinger! I love you man!

I don't think Mom has ever been called two halves of a hoot - what a crackup! I'm glad at least someone doesn't think she's strange.

Gobble, gobble dude!

Sandra y Coco said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! We are thankful to have found your blog, to get to meet you and and to learn so much reading through your blog. Oh mom didn't know about the hotel where your daddy stayed but she looked online and it is so awesome! I bet it had pretty views! Did he like it while here? It was warm back then, today it is sunny but cooler.

Stubby said...

Hi Coco! Dad loved Miami and he goes down there every few months. He loved the hotel and told Mom that she needs to go with him next time. She will stop by and visit you when she is there.

Hi Melissa & Emmitt! You guys are so sweet! I think of Emmitt as my big brother - he teaches me about cooking and I teach him how to be green. We are two peas in a pod!

Hi Stubby, I was camping here in Florida for Thanksgiving and am finally checking up on all my blogger buddies. I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving and had a lot to be thankful for. I think we all have a lot to be thankful for only sometimes we just don't always realize it. I'm glad you're a blogging buddy I can read (and your mom finds all the environmentally friendly things out there!!)!

Stubby said...

Hi dw! How cool that you went camping for Thanksgiving. Did you have turkey?

I am so lucky to have you as a blogging friend. I'm glad you like my eco-friendly tips and ideas. I'm thankful the Earth is still green!

Stubby xoxo
