As the year winds down, here’s a quick list of the things I’m thankful for this year.

  1. Concordia, LCCS, and Garden PreSchool. 
  2. Each other. My Lyndon from London. Teddy and Lucas.
  3. False eyelashes and spankx. 
  4. My health. My finally pain-free herniated disc.
  5. Our house. And the HVAC system. Hot air and low ceilings. 
  6. Sugar, butter, and my Kitchenaide mixer.
  7. Memmere, Papa, and all the adults my children adore.
  8. Yoga. Meditation. Song. 
  9. The wireless speaker we got for Christmas.
  10. Trans* visibility and the normalization of gender queering. The activists and soldiers who got us here. 
  11. GPS. GPS on the phone. GPS as a tool for everyday use. 
  12. Pay day.
  13. This blog. It’s readers. Happy New Year, friends. Thanks for being here.
