Adventures (II)

My quote--job interview--unquote seems to have turned into something straight out of The Apprentice. There was a task, a deadline and a boardroom review. At the end of the day, I felt on one hand generally miserable with myself and my job prospects, and on the other hand actually kinda wishing I could work for the man.

I blame my earlier post about good luck...Never count your chickens, ladies.

And on the third hand, I feel like I'm chasing after an existence that resembles young ladder-climbers who spend their "wild, unattached twenties" at work, and I remember how important things like holidays and adventures (real ones- you know, of the gallivanting sort) are to me.

Holidays like Thanksgiving, of course! (We're leaving for Y-town tonight)

But on the other foot, I am regularly reminded that it seems like holidays and adventures sometimes cost money. Money is apparently something you receive when you are employed....Yeah. Whoa. Deep.

Anyways, the wonderful thing about Thanksgiving (well, besides pie and family and the glow of a warm kitchen) is that it may be one of the only holidays that doesn't seem to cost money. It is just about the last major holiday for the commercial sector to hold sacred and leave untouched. I mean, this is a holiday that glorifies saving scraps and eating leftovers (of course, that could be an evil grocery store scheme, but no! don't snow on my parade).

So, enjoy the free-ness of giving thanks, wherever you are and with whatever "family" you can gather together. "When we stop to think about it, there is so much to be thankful for we really need more than one day to do it," wrote some columnist. May you dress warmly, laugh long, and be full.

Hey, just in case you check your blog before I get a chance to call you... You doubt yourself too much. Sounds like somebody's employed if they want to be...
Yippee! Yippee! Yippee!
Come home!
