thanksgiving eve

On the eve of the greatest day of the year, I give thanks.

what are you thankful for?  I'm thankful for cmfost, and mills

True story:
Monday night, doblue1 was getting ready for bed and started pulling clothes out of her closet, ones that were too big and didn't fit her.  I asked her what she was doing.  She goes to a charter school and they have to wear uniforms.  They have variable options, so it's not the exact same thing everyday.  Anyway, she told me that she has a friend at school who only has one uniform, so she wears the same dress, shirt, and tights everyday to school.  Doblue said "She only has one, and I have all these ones that I don't even wear, so I want to give them to her".  It melted my heart.  So cmblue took the clothes to school yesterday before school and gave them to the teacher because we didn't want to embarrass the little girl.  The teacher was so thankful she started to tear up, and said, in all her years of teaching this is the sweetest thing any of her students has done.   These are the days where I'm proud to be a father, and while most the time I feel like I'm just screwing my kids up, it's days like this when I realize that inspite of my idiocy, my kids are going to be great human beings.

As dumb as it sounds, this little episode has put the holidays back into perspective for me, and now I'm all weird and happy and giddy.

Now I can sit and watch football and drink beer all day tomorrow, in peace.

oh, NIU, the huskies

Who's your Daddy? said...

I'm sure he's outstanding

and of course he isn't raping chicks, have you seen the women in Northern Illinois?

compared to Florida State.

tem said...

I have not seen the NIU chicks, but I am sure that there are at least some super hot ones.

Who's your Daddy? said...

I'm not so sure

tem said...

i wonder if it ends up being that the chick accusing Winston gets shot down because people assume that at the end of the day the starting QB for a top 25 football team does not need to rape anyone

Who's your Daddy? said...

he was just a redshirt freshman nobody when this happened though

tem said...

good point, but still people might think that he wouldn't need to rape anyone and just dismiss the idea all together.

tem said...

pat forde reads lov. is writing about what happens if auburn wins and do they jump tOSU.

tem said...

The USDA forecasts 242 million turkeys will be raised in the U.S. in 2013, which is down 5%.

Keef said...

Keef said...

Auburn is going to lose to Bamer anywho, so it's all a mute* point

Keef said...

The one down side to having little kids is getting the songs from those shows stuck in your head

I got up with cmjug when she fed him every time when I was off for two weeks. for the past couple of days he hasn't wanted to go to sleep when we do. he doesn't cry, just won't sleep and is fussy when we lay him down, so I stay up with him until about 1 when she gets up to feed him then I go to sleep. it will be a happy day when he sleeps through the night!

Keef said...

pain in the asses

Jugdish said...

got the email that we're getting off an hour early...suite

The Meiz said...

"LP?"

Oops. 30% more turkeys than last year.

tem said...

When the kid cries at 2am I don't do anything. I sleep right through it. She is exclusively breastfeeding so I can't do anything but watch anyway.

Jugdish said...

called to add cmjug to my vision insurance...now you have to verify the gender of your spouse. times are changing

Who's your Daddy? said...

I'm letting everyone leave at 1 MST, so in 2 hours.

tem said...

Cmtem wants to breastfeed everytime. Even though we have a ton of breastmilk in the freezer she still wants to feed her herself. So I've basically only fed bgtem three or four times ever.

Jugdish said...

caught me off guard when he asked me to verify gender...dude said "sorry, we have to ask that now"

Jugdish said...

Cmtem wants to breastfeed everytime.


not sure how long cmjug is gonna do that...playing it by ear. she has thought about stopping and going to the bottle.

when I get off work im thinking about going to the bottle (whiskey)

The Meiz said...

Prince Fielder is going to wear #84 in Texas. What a weirdo.

Keef said...

Keef said...
