Thanksgiving was awesome. I ran the Turkey Trot with my friend Liz, ate desert first and laughed the night away. Friday morning, we skidaddled north and went skiing for three days. A little bit of downhill, a little bit of nordic... Life is good!
Like, single digit temps! It makes you run faster.
SO MUCH FOOOOOOD

Monday morning brought the next big adventure... I've been PROMOTED at work and started my new role of Director of Grassroots Fundraising at United Way of Anchorage. This is a brand new position for UWA, I get to develop the whole thing as I go. Needless to say, I'm pretty thrilled. It feels good to be trusted to develop something new and important to the organization. The extra dollar bills was also a pretty sweet touch.
I've been fond of saying lately "I have nothing to complain about". And it's true.
What Have I Got to Complain About
We've got enough money not to worry every minute
about where the next dollar is coming from.
We even go to the movies once in a while.
We've got a nice collection of friends.
Our house is sturdy and well built.
It keeps us warm and stands well against the storms.
The larder is full of rice.
There are plenty of potatoes down cellar.
The freezer is full of vegetables I grew myself.
In the face of all that, slights to my vanity
seem frivolous and nonsensical.
What have I got to complain about?
