my first real thanksgiving


my first real thanksgiving
Originally uploaded by fabfunkydiva.
Thanks for the support from all of you, as I voyage through all this job drama. I have LOADS to be greatful for......

1st off,....I have another job that I start as soon as I have finished working through my notice. It pay a whole lot more and I am the director. (much more prestiege) I will get to work on the masters,...for free. (ps. can you believe HATER SUPERVISOR had the audacity to come at me all concerned after the resignation like, "what are you gonna do? how will you survive?" (trying to get all up in my business)I told him, GOD takes care of his kids and I will be just fine! I will be better than fine because, little does he know,...I now make way more money than he does. HOW YA LIKE ME NOW,...BI-YATCH!?

2ndly,...My dog KAS is doing much better. Didn't think he would make it for a while there. His health is bad and he is old and I am not ready to let go.

3rd,...My sister is pregnant with the familys' first and only baby. (you know, I AM NOT THE ONE!)So I will have a hand at influencing a baby diva.

4th,...GOD HAS BEEN TAKING CARE OF THIS BLACK CHILE! (this should have been first but I didn't want to retype, so please forgive and don't trip,....Mandy. =)

5th,....FINALLY GOT A NEW RIDE. NOW PEOPLE CAN STOP PICKIN' AT ME.

6th and final,....My mom died in 94. Yall, it has taken me 10yrs to finally try to pull a semi-MAMA STYLE THANKSGIVING! I haven't wanted any parts of sould food because I would immediately think of her and become miserable. I'd find myself envious of anyone that still had their mom. I would even get pissed at those that would invite me over. I felt it was like rubbing it in my face. (eventhough I knew it wasn't the intention) But now my friends, I think I am ready to try. Of course there is that 'CAN'T COOK' thing. But NO FRIENDS! I refuse to let that stop me. I designed this table setting. I made the name holders, made the glasses to match the plates and the menu board. I am pretty proud of it. I even ordered a Turkey from MEAT SLANGERS. I am starting to get excited. This is my first real THANKSGIVING since my mom's death and instead of sadness,...I AM FEELING PRETTY GREAT & FULL!

Congrats on the new job, and Happy Thanksgiving (all late, I know)! I hope you had a lovely one, and that you felt good about your endeavor after your loss.

I visited crafster and saw soem neat stuff indeed, but I don't think I have the skills to pull it off! I borrowed this book called bitch n stitch, or something, and that is about all i can handle now!

Yay, you make more than the fools at your old job! haha! you should snicker as they leave your area just to make them paranoid, teehee...

I am glad you were able to enjoy Thanksgiving. Your mother would be proud of you, don't worry.

Berry said...

You are blessed and highly favored! Congratulations. I am waiting for my change to come. Girl, I understand about the Thanksgiving, um, resentment issues. My mom died in 1995 and although I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for all my friends and spent Christmas with the my family that year, I haven't really been able to muster the energy to spend the holidays with friends in the last few years. I tried a couple of times and it just made me more sad and jealous (as you know). I thought I was the only one who felt angry and resentful when friends would insist I come over to spend the holidays with THEIR family. Of course now I outright refuse or just duck them but it is getting old now. Next year will be the 10 anniversary for me and I hope that I can move forward as you have. Keep shining!

Yay!
I'll have you know that it was the positive energy that I sent that helped KAS get better! hehehe
My 12 year old chihuawa Tyson is going strong, despite his diet of fried chicken and baked ham for dinner and cereal for breakfast, God bless him.

I'm pumping my fist for your professional advancement, too! You are doing it way big, sister!

And how beautiful was your table setting. Thank goodness Martha is locked up, 'cause you are giving her a run for her money!

Chuck said...

Wow, you do have a lot to be thankful for! Good for you on all of it!! Congrats!!

From the look of the pic you had a nice holiday meal. Next time I am in Hotlanta you'll have to invite me over!
