I hope all my readers in the United States had a great Thanksgiving. My Thanksgiving was spent at home with the family. The best part of this holiday is spending time with my family. It is also a time for reflection on things that I am thankful for. Here are the things that I am thankful for: my supportive family, my good friends (online and off), my in-home nursing care (most especially Ernie who has taken care of me for fifteen years), that I live at home and not in a nursing home, the adaptive equipment that allows me to use the computer, my accesible van which allows me to get out in the world, my power wheelchair which allows me to get around, and my ventilator which has extended my life.
I hope you are all having a marvelous day so far, and aren't too stuffed yet! :) So I have read a ton of articles and posts on how to survive Thanksgiving, so to prevent being repetitive, I'm going to share just my favorite tricks & tips! This is suppose to be a day for friends and family, not lengthy blog posts, so I will keep it short.
