Thankful...

Man, time has flown, November is gone.

First, HOW ABOUT THEM AGGIES!!! 12-7 over the dreadful, awful t-sips. (My wife is a longhorn, as a graduate of the University of Texas, we are a mixed marriage.) This is the first time the Aggies have won since we've known each other. This morning I played the Aggie War Hymn, (I have the cd, I know, I know, ) and told her, "Only 364 more days of this." We handle this rivarly better than I think most do, and most of the credit goes to her, not me. But, as I told her as she seemed a bit amazed at my excitement, "It's different when you're on the dominated end of a rivarly game."

Second, I like Thanksgiving alot, as I think it is a truely American holiday. We spend this Thanksgiving with our dear friends in the city, that we will miss terribly when we return to the mother land.

Finally, we have alot to be thankful for in our family. Baby is on the way. (We don't need socks, I think Drew has more socks than the two of us together now.) We have two nice choices on jobs for Bubba, both of which work with Mrs. Bubba's old job in Dallas. We have all the "stuff" we need for the baby. Baby and Mommy are both healthy! We have great friends in the city that help and support us. We have great families at home that help and support us. We're doing pretty good. I never thought at 30 I would have this much to look forward to, but I'm more excited about the future at 30 than I was at 18 or 24.

I woke up this morning and had to check the Tivo to make sure that I hadn't dreamed that we beat Texas. This has been a long time coming! Gig 'Em Aggies!

Apparently I'm dreadful and awful. Glad to know that now.

Oh, Bubba - you're in trouble now! ;-)

I don't think you're dreadful OR awful, Katie Lady!

Seriously - good post, Bubba.

I really love the last paragraph of this blog Bubba. Those are the things that really matter and you and your katielady are so blessed. 30 is a wonderful age! It's when you begin to realize what life's all about. Not that you will totally know for another 30 or so years, but it's a start.
