Today was a good day.
I don't know why. I don't know how. We were slammed at work--non-stop work. It was stressful...but not at the same time. I was busy and turning out work that my supervisor and boss liked. Really liked. So that's why.
But there was something else. Is it because I woke up with "The Wizard and I" AND "Black Horse and a Cherry Tree" both stuck in my head? Maybe. Is it because when I got on the freeway, right by my apartment is a billboard for "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader"? (Seriously, it's just this huge picture of Aslan's face. It's awesome.) Quite possibly. Is it because this video came up on my Facebook feed? Oh, I know that played a big part (minus the awful auto-tuning). Is it because that today I realized it is November and in 2.5 weeks, I will see my family? Yes. Yes, I think that's the main reason.
I haven't seen 11 of my 17 family members in nearly a year. I haven't spent Thanksgiving with them in 5 years. So, really, I'm excited. And I'm excited to get out of here. Not by choice, my summer was spent working full-time, with no vacations. I'm ready. I don't know what I'm doing for Christmas, but I'm ready for Thanksgiving. So ready. Bring on the madness.
