I know that I wouldn't have gotten through my divorce without it. Heck, I probably wouldn't be friends with my ex without it. Even though it threatened that situation more than enough times! But the trial was good, in the long run.
I've made some really wonderful people, and with the "LJ Idol Tour" this summer I was actually able to meet a lot of them face to face, and I am certainly thankful for that! It really did change my life for the better, as well as being able to check off one of my long term dreams and being one step closer to the next one!!
I'm thankful for my mom and her boyfriend Tony.
I'm thankful for my girls and for the boy. A "furry and feathery pet daddy" couldn't wish for better. They are responsible for getting me through the day to day and at times giving me a reason to get up in the morning.
But, right now, I'm damn sure thankful for you guys.
Not just this season's competitors, but each and every one of you who have supported LJ Idol from the "hey, I have an idea!" stage on my own LJ to a field of 154 contestants and apparently it being mentioned in some sort of forum at Philcon this year! (or maybe I got confused and it was afterward, but heck, ANYONE mentioning Idol in a positive light - other than me - is more than I could have ever dreamed happening.)
Thank you all so much.
That said - SURPRISE ELIMINATION TIME!!!!!!
Heh, sorry, just seeing if you were paying attention. No elimination until after the deadline on Monday.*g*
Hope those of you who celebrate it are having a wonderful Thanksgiving with the people that you love, and the rest of you are having a really good day and have fun plans for the weekend.
