Pumpkin Pie and Thankfulness.

I'd share with you if I could!
I have been so absorbed by the new expansion that I nearly forgot I had a blog. Today I pulled myself mostly away (I had to check on my followers!) to make Thanksgiving dinner for my family. I would say it was a small affair, but with 7 kids, 2 grand kids, their dad, my husband, my mother and the cat, who needs guests? I have been working most of the day making stuffing (no boxes here!), gravy, and the turkey. I made pies with two of my girls yesterday (from a whole pumpkin, but with the pre made crust dough), and cheated with Hawaiian and ranch rolls the store made and cranberry sauce from a can (because it's not Thanksgiving without the slices of canned jelly). One of the girls made the green bean casserole, and another made the candied yams, while the littlest of my girls wrapped the sweet potatoes in foil. Oh, and I would be a bad wife if I didn't give credit to the hubby for making the mashed potatoes and his famous cherry cream cheese pie.

I finally finished the dishes for the umpteenth time, and got to sit down and eat another slice of pie. While I was washing dishes, I thought about what I have to be thankful for. The usual things came to mind, of course. I have a roof over my head, food on the table, healthy kids, and there are three more than just me working toward keeping this family in toilet paper and electricity. I have a husband who is crazy about me. I'm losing weight, despite my unhealthy WoW addiction., and feel healthier than I have in a long time. Things are pretty good.

Right about halfway through the dishes I started thinking about my friends here, on the internet. I am so thankful to have found a wonderful community of people to share this hobby of mine with. Those of you on my BNet list, I smile when I see you log in. The comments I do get on this blog, though few, are a highlight of my day. Meeting up with fellow gamers once a month at Jose's gives me something to look forward to when these walls start closing in on me. Those of you who blog along with me, I enjoy reading of your fun in game and out. The few times I de-lurk to pipe up on Twitter, I enjoy the short conversations. Podcasters, thanks for being the background soundtrack to my day at work. Pwnies, I think  you are all awesome (still fishing up enough awesomefish to throw your way). I am thankful for all of you!

Happy Thanksgiving, my dear Azerothian friends. I'm going to go get myself another slice of pie, because my plate is empty.

Needs more pie.
