Happy Thanksgiving friends!
Yeah, I know I have not written on my blog in a really LONG time and I am sorry for that but I have been super duper busy with work and I PROMISE I am going to do better.
Today is Thanksgiving, and it was my birthday yesterday! Yay me! Just another year older but I am here where I am at in life, so that is a big plus. Anyways, I love the month of November, not just because it’s my birthday but Veterans Day, which is my Abuelo’s anniversary but also Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving but let me tell you…every year I get super fucking anxious. Why? The food.
You always hear on the news that people get sick from the turkey or the food that they made so I always make safe things and since my wife knows me, she will tell me everything is fine a million times. It helps too that she knows how to cook and would not eat food that would make her sick, haha. Anyways, turkey freaks me out but I told her we should make one. I was pumped about it and she got up this morning and left me sleeping to get it ready to put in the oven. She knew that if I watched her do it, I would ask a million questions and hover and be just grossed out. So true, geesh, I am so lucky!
We made delicious sides and I could see the timer on the oven go down and my heart started to race and here comes the anxiety. My wife says I have a certain look when I start panicking, which is probably true. I can tell stories with my facial expressions but anyways…I had to keep fighting with my brain that the food was okay and it was going to be delicious and guess what? It was fucking delicious and nothing bad happened, who would’ve thought? haha.
It is the little things like this that I am proud of, I hope you also have little things that you are proud of and it just shows me that we can get through our anxiety.
P.S. I love Friends!! (caption picture)
Keep Moving Forward,
