Thanksgiving Blues

I’m supposed to give thanks this time of year. How do you do that when your heart aches? I’ll do the obligatory dinner at Aunt Sarah and Uncle Clare’s house but don’t plan on spending the night. It’s only a couple hours drive but Sarah can be persuasive so plans can change.

I didn’t put up a tree last year and don’t plan on it this year either. I try not to be a scrooge but with no family or kids around I don’t see the point. Loren and I had discussed fostering and maybe adopting but we never did. At the time Indiana legislators introduced a law to prohibit gays and lesbians from adopting. The law never passed. I believe that if you have to have to designate one day out of the year to contemplate caring about people than there’s something terribly wrong.

I’d love to be able to give Warren a bonus but the funds aren’t there. Instead of cash I’ll give him an extra week off. He’ll refuse and will be a pain in the ass about it but I’ll assure him the place won’t fall down just because he’s away.

This week I’m working on a case to find a guy who is behind on child support payments. Apparently he sold everything and moved. I guess I’m not the only one who’s lacking holiday cheer.
