We had our first snowfall of the season last night and I still find that to be a wonderful thing. Our move out of this apartment and into my in-laws will begin in earnest in the next couple of weeks as we want to be done with it by Christmas. Surprisingly enough despite all my time complaining about this cramped two bedroom apartment it has still been home for the last six years or so and has hosted more than a few wonderful memories in that time so I’m actually finding myself a little nostalgic as the holidays get under way with Thanksgiving today. We’ve had some very fine Christmases here as well as many birthdays, Valentines, and an uncountable number of ordinary moments that managed to become more than ordinary for various reasons. I started this blog while living here and I managed to hit both the pinnacle and the lowest point of my career while residing under its roof. As good as it will be that we’re moving on to hopefully better things in the not-too-distant future, there’s still a twinge of remorse over leaving this poor old place behind.
While we’re on the subject of Thanksgiving I wanted to take a moment and thank all of you who have made SEB a regular stop while cruising the information superhighway. This year in particular many of you went out of your way to help me and my family during my unemployment and I am truly thankful for your generosity and all of your encouragement. I can not begin to express in words how fortunate and grateful I feel. Thank you.
Now, before you head off and start chowing down on turkey and stuffing in a mad fit to bring about a self-induced food coma I wanted to share one last pic of this year’s first snowfall from the doorway of my apartment. This one didn’t turn out as well as some of the past ones, but what the hell.
