I've honestly been just too tired and busy to post lately! Normally I'm not the type of person to buy an excuse like this. First of all I'm usually not just that busy of a person so I can't understand someone not having five minutes in their day to complete a simple task, like returning a phone call or such. My main problem is when I have had the time to post, I've been so exhausted that it just seems too daunting. I think I hit rock bottom yesterday morning around 7am. I was sitting on my couch in a half vegetative state trying to muster up the energy to get up, brave the cold, and go to work. I couldn't help staring at Hector and thinking that I would give anything to just trade places with him for one day so I could just lounge around the warm apartment and sleep all day.
One side effect of my extreme tiredness is that I'm more excited for Thanksgiving than ever before. Now some of you may know that I'm not the biggest fan of the holiday and it's only partially because I'm not that thankful of a person. The food just isn't that special for a vegetarian that doesn't like yams or cranberry sauce and is just lukewarm about pumpkin pie. I mean I like mashed potatoes, corns, and dinner rolls, but they're nothing to get all excited about. And with all my extended family a couple thousand miles away, it's just another dinner with my parents and brother, and I won't even go into the hypocrisy of celebrating just about the only day that the pilgrims and "indians" actually got along. (maybe we should start a new tradition of giving away symbolic smallpox blankets as a sign of friendship) The real reason I'm so excited is just for the four day break from work, but really, nothing would make me more thankful than forgetting about the whole holiday and spending the fourth Thursday of November lounging on a beach in Hawaii and having a drink with an umbrella in it.
