I’ve just came home from eating a very hearty and filling Thanksgiving dinner with my relatives. I’m just taking it easy at home now while waiting for all that food to slowly digest.
This year I even brought my American Girl doll, Julie Albright, with me because I wanted to tell my relatives how that doll was the reason my husband cited for why he had to leave me and why we had to get divorced. (No, he didn’t mention that he was leaving me for someone else. He once even blamed me for the fact that he was dating the other woman. He married her last year just two months after our divorce was final. Given the way he is, I could ask him for the real reason why he did this and he would probably still blame the doll for all this.) My relatives all agreed that blaming a doll for a marital breakup is totally crazy.
But it was all good today. I ate a lot of good food with some great relatives. I have a lot to be thankful for. I’m thankful for my family, all of whom have been supportive towards me during the entire divorce drama of the last few years. I’m thankful that I got the home in the divorce settlement to I won’t have to move for now. I’m thankful for the friends—both old and new—who have been helpful to me in ways that are too numerous to mention here. Yes, my life isn’t perfect and there are some areas that I wish would improve for me but I’m thankful for the life that I currently have. Believe me, things could be way worse than my current situation.
That’s it for now. I’m going to quit writing this entry and put Frozen on the DVD player because I’m in the mood for some frivolous Disney animated princess action.
