I searched "Macrame Turkey", "Weightlifting Turkey", and "Cranky Turkey" and came up with nothing.

And so you don't get a picture with this post.

Instead, you'll get a list of Things Jo Is Thankful For This Thanksgiving

Ready? Let's dive in.

Jo Is Thankful For:

1. A healthy, relatively fit body that allows her to do what she does, both at work and for fun, mostly without injury.

2. Zantac, which seems to be taking care of the worst of the Belly Problems.

3. Old dogs and young cats.

4. Attila, who puts her through her paces three times a week, and for whom cussing and whining never get old.

5. Her family, who is mostly sane and all very far away.

6. Fresh mozzarella on sale at the local health food store.

7. Talisker.

8. A car that works.

9. Singlehood.

10. The opportunity to be grouchy here on CF. I never believed that anybody would want to read what I had to write about fitness in any context, let alone on a *fitness blog*. And, speaking of fitness, I had to do the worst Army drills today: pushups combined with step-hopping with weights and some leapfrogging with a big sandball in between. My butt is three inches higher and sixteen times sore-er, and great googly moogly, I hope I don't have to do legs tomorrow, too.

I hope you all have a fine, healthy, happy Thanksgiving, and that the tryptophan kicks in before anybody has a chance to talk politics. See you later on in the week!


  1. Hope you have a wonderful turkey day. :)

  2. Great list! Although I had to google "talisker"....:) Happy Thanksgiving Jo.

  3. I never pass an opportunity to be grouchy. :^P


  4. Great list Jo. Have a great Thanksgiving!

  5. And great googly moogly, we're thankful for Jo!

    Now I'm gonna look up "Talisker," too.

  6. Love it!!!! And Happy Happy to you. Is Atilla thankful to make people hurt??? :-)

  7. Excellent gratitude list. Happy Thanksgiving.

  8. Nice list - hope you have a happy T-day, Jo!

  9. And I am so thankful for awesome cobloggers who are keeping this blog afloat and bringing joy to my cranky little heart!

    Glad to hear the zantac is helping and that Atilla is still happily kicking your ass.

    Have a great thanksgiving!

  10. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and great post!!!

  11. I'm thankful you weren't desperate enough in your internet search to resort to Thanksgiving yard inflatable turkeys. *shudders*

    Hope Atilla doesn't lay you up on Thanksgiving. Or is that the master evil plan?

  12. this is the closest i could find to a gym-going turkey -

  13. It's nice to have a place to cut your crankiness loose, isn't it?

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  14. happy happy happy thanksgiving, Jo!
