This past week has been one of the toughest I’ve had in a while. Frankly, I didn’t even plan on doing this post today because it’s too tall a task to look for anything positive right now.

BUT…there is at least one huge thing to be thankful for right now.

For years I’ve wanted to take the twins up to Ann Arbor to see a Michigan football game. Tuesday evening my dad called me. He and my step mom already had tickets to today’s game, but my cousin, who has season tickets, had some extra tickets when those who were supposed to attend canceled at the last second.

Dad called me and asked if I wanted to go. I told him I couldn’t go, but I’d love it if he would take the twins. And he agreed.


I’m sitting on the couch watching (while writing this on my tablet) the game with C while the twins are there watching the Wolverines implode. (You’ll be job hunting soon, Hoke.) Even though Michigan is having their asses handed to them, the twins are there taking in the much, much livelier college football experience.

Of course, there are other things I’m thankful for. My friends. My family. The amazing support I’ve received from everybody during these recent trying times. I’m also still thankful for coffeh, and the fact that C finally just went down for a nap. Halle-fucking-lujah.


Even though things have been dark, stray rays of light are sneaking through the obsidian clouds. Lastly, I’m thankful that, even though I’m in a pretty shitty mood right now, I can see those rays of light.
