Here are the things that I am grateful for this year: my job, my friends, my family, my clean apartment, the car that is almost wholely mine, and figuring out what the hell has been wrong with me.

I feel, right now, like I have been given a pecious gift. I read a book that said I might go through a period of mourning over the loss of gluten products, but I feel so much better right now that I can't imagine when that might happen.

Not only has my stomach settled a ton, but this weird experience of having my arms and hands fall asleep every night has gone away. Although it's slow in its return, I do feel like some energy is coming back. I'm not needing a nap every night after work.

Speaking of work, it is overwhelming right now, but it is secure. I have a job in an industry that is pretty stable.

I love my little apartment, especially when it is clean. I am hopeful of training it to clean itself in the future (perhaps that's a bit ambitious).

I have family and friends who I love and who love me. I appear to make doggie-friends most everywhere I go. Cats love me.

And my car...I have 2 more payments and she belongs solely to me.

I am truly blessed.

Spins, I thought I would give you a Midwest memory blast. I just got in from ICE FISHING. How cool is that?

Cody - that's fabulous! Are you pretty far north? I hadn't heard that it had been cold enough to get out on the lakes. Be safe and no driving your SUV out onto the ice!

I'm about an hour south of the UP, and the ice is thick enough for people, but alas, the suv and snowmobile will have to wait for the next trip
