I'm thankful for a wonderful and varied Thanksgiving week:
-For a job that decided to give us Friday as a holiday without using up a PTO day.
-For wonderful Pakistani food (though the wait to order truly made it feel like we were in another country...).
-For the chance to finally see Into the Wild. A movie that truly makes you feel thankful for life, warmth and a good family.
-For the chance to see Jrex's cousins and uncle in San Francisco Friday night. I'm thankful that I spent $60 on three kids books (Extreme Dinosaurs and How Many racked up the cost) since they turned around and gave me a Dior purse.
-I'm very thankful that Jrex's cousin owns a GREAT Korean restaurant just north of Golden Gate park. As I told Jrex, of all the 'typical' immigrant business to own, I'm very glad to have a restaurant in the family instead of a dry cleaner or a store.
-For the chance to hang out with one of my close friends for the weekend. And for her dog-walking abilities when we abandoned her both Friday night and all day Saturday.
-For access to an Urgent Care center and the news that instead of gall stones or kidney stones, it was just severe constipation.
-For the chance to bike into the Presidio and picnic on the beach under the Golden Gate bridge with another couple. For so many great friends after such a short time here. For both on-line and real-life community.
