Happy Thanksgiving!

Mr Pug and I (and of course, out pugs) all wish you a very...

I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's recipe! We are going to Mr Pug's dad's today, and then his Mom's on Saturday. I'm trying to decide if I should eat breakfast or save room.

This year, I am thankful for our ability, financially and emotionally, to bounce back from all our mini-emergencies. I am glad that we have each other and that our priorities are in order... on that note, I am glad to tell you all that with Mr Pug's encouraging, I put my notice in at NY&Co! On December 13th I will become a one-job gal again!

Though we have much to be thankful for this year, 2009 has been the worst one for us yet. I lost my job, Mr Pug has been looking for a new one (he likes his job but is as high as he can get in his company and wants to use his degree more), we've had countless financial mishaps like the use of our savings during my unemployment, and our roof leak. I've had four jobs this year! (Taxes will be fun in a few months... ha, right!) It's been emotionally draining on both of us, so most of all, I'm just extremely thankful we made it through together!

  1. Aww that is a lot to be thankful for! I can understand the job thing. I would like to use my degree for more than what I am now. It's so hard nowadays with the job market. I wonder how long I can cling to that excuse .. ;)
