To be honest. I'm having a hard time being thankful tonight.
Tomorrow will be the first of many Thanksgivings with out option of spending it with my Mom. To me this is a powerfully sad realization. I am thankful to get to at least spend it with my Dad and Stepmother in Salem.
I know people that have strained relationships with their parents, and who won't be seeing them this year for various reasons. This breaks my heart and frustrates me. It isn't fair to anyone involved in most of those situations. I wish for them it was different because someone told me this time is about spending with family I countered with "its about more than that" and that was rebutted quite effectively and promptly and changed my mind.
I know tomorrow is going to be hard for a lot of people for a lot of reasons. My heart goes out to them.
So I've got a mustache now. It is strange to say the least. I've had a handful of questions about it.
It has been kind of interesting so far. I am really not used to so much hair on the upper lip from time to time I feel it on my lower lip or see it when my eyes look downwards. I also have to pay more attention when I shave, lest I screw it up. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be keeping after Movember though.
No not November, but Movember. Its pretty much Man Cancer Awareness month to followup Breast Cancer awareness Month. So I'm growing out a stash this month. I would appreciate at it if you would take a moment and donate even just a couple bucks to Movember. My Mospace page.
