What I'm not so grateful right now is technology. Everything seems to be fighting me. First there's Google, who in its infinite wisdom has decided to merge my LD Masterson blog account with my Linda Leszczuk personal g-mail account. Lately, when I log in using my ldmasterson email (not a gmail address) it tells Blogger I'm Linda Leszczuk and wants to identify my blog comments that way. And if I try to sync my phone to my personal account to upload photos, it dumps all the images that have ever been on my blog down to my phone.
Yesterday, things got worse. I also handle the e-mailing for our church disaster response team. That gmail account was set up originally by a guy named Dan and is only used for maintaining an email address list and sending messages to the team. Yesterday, I left a comment on my blog and Blogger attached Dan's name to it. I have no idea why.
Then there's my phone, which won't play nice with my computer. All I want to do is transfer photos from my phone to my Windows PC. But when I connect the phone, it immediately tries to upload my photos to Dropbox. Unfortunately, the only Dropbox account I use is for exchanging file with my crit group and they really don't want to see all my family photos. So I downloaded the software that's supposed to let Windows talk to Droid devices. The software sees the phone okay but insists the phone is locked and wants me to unlock it. Problem is my phone isn't locked. Arrrgh.
Bottom line - I have some issues to deal with and they're all going to wait until after this holiday weekend so I will probably be off-blog next week while I try to sort it all out.
In the meantime, for all my friends here in the States, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and for everyone else, have a great week.
And here are a couple of my favorite Thanksgiving sillies...
By the way, if anyone knows who to disentangle Google accounts, I'll take all the help I can get. Thanks.
Take care, everyone.

Ain't technology grand?
