Another weird US holiday

Only in America would we celebrate a time in history where we screwed the natives, bringing them disease and taking their land. Of course, we only tell the Sunday School version to our kids, but it is what happened.

Fortunately, I think the holiday has evolved well beyond that, and these days it's more a day to be with families and such. That makes it particularly tough for us, because we don't have very good relationships with our families.

But I think that our marriage serves as the basis for our new family, which might only consist of us and our two cats for now, but it's certainly something to be thankful for. For me at least, there's no better feeling than waking up in the morning and knowing someone loves you, and even supports your ridiculous need to work out being your own boss. I'm sure that lesser partners would have me be miserable in a job that I don't like.

In fact, for the four years we've been married, Stephanie is the one thing that has never been wrong. How many things in your life can always be right? So on this day of giving thanks, I give thanks that I married the best wife ever.

That's pretty damn sweet.
