As most of you know, there was this thing going on yesterday in the good old U.S.A. called an election. This means that for the past six months, my facebook news feed has been filled with everything Obama and Romney.
But today, for the first time in six months, my news feed was filled with something else. It was filled with Diane Sawyer.
No more statuses preaching about Obama or Romney (other than a few gloaters and a few moaners). Just a bunch of statuses about a possibly lit Diane Sawyer, mixed in with all the usual statuses of whose kids celebrated what birthday, photos of babies and puppies, and the always exciting statuses of what people had for breakfast.
So today I am thankful for the next three and a half years of a mostly political-free facebook news feed, starting with Diane Sawyer. Let's raise a glass to the inebriated news anchors of the world!
*In the spirit of Thanksgiving, "I Am Thankful For..."
is a blog challenge I have decided to do during the month of November.
Each day I will pick one thing that I am thankful for and blog about it.
Obviously I am extremely thankful for the many things in my life I am
blessed with, such as a wonderful family, my health and my family's
health, great friends, a roof over my head, food on the table, and more.
But this series is about all the other day-to-day things that I
sometimes take for granted and that make life just a little bit better
-- you know, the little things. To see a list of all the posts in this
