My workout on Sunday went great. The details are kind of boring unless you want to hear about my legs responding really well or the nice views I had while waiting to use some of the machines.

On Saturday, I helped my sister hook up her new TV. It's a good thing I've been working out since that thing was large and heavy. I also got a new coat since I was tired of struggling to make my old coat's zipper work.

More details if you're interested. )

My family has a rather strange Thanksgiving tradition. We name the turkey, usually after a family member; unfortunately, we ran out of relatives this year and had to resort to other names.

A few years ago, my family decided to try something different by spending Thanksgiving with my mother's relatives. Other than my aunt catching something that kept her from coming with my uncle and cousins, that plan went rather well.

During dinner, conversation naturally turned to how my cousins' grandfather was doing. My middle cousin said that his grandfather was fine, but the flu was going around the nursing home when he visited.

At this point some of us became concerned that my middle cousin might be carrying the flu. Trying to eliminate our concern, my older cousin added, "Don't worry. We had him sterilized."

I try to be thankful for what I have throughout the year, but it's good to have a day to celebrate what we have. I'm thankful for my friends (both new and old), my family, my health, having a roof over my head, and having food to eat. I really shouldn't be complaining so much since there are a lot of people without those things.
