I saw the movie Men of Honor today. It was a fantastic movie based on a true story. The main thing I got out of it was that we need to be thankful for what people went through in the past. We take things for granted now, we don't have to worry about not getting hired because we are black or white, male or female, jewish or irish. It's incredible to think how things were just a short time ago. We have a long way to go but look how far we have come.

Fonz and the boys have been working on cleaning out our basement for a few weeks now. They work for one hour once a week, usually on trash day. They have made so much progress in just a short time, I'm very happy with what they have done so far. Today I joined them and we purged the laundry. We have 7 trash bags of clothes to donate, probably about 1/2 of what was downstairs waiting to be washed. We have a goal to finish cleaning the basement and make it nice enough to have Thanksgiving for my side of the family at our house this year. We had it at our house the first year we were married. That was 20 years ago when not all my siblings were married and Jessica was the only grandchild. Now there are about 25(?) of us to gather for some turkey. I think I will track the progress on this blog.
