Morning! I'm going to wish a happy and blessed Thanksgiving Day to everyone since I probably won't be back here until Monday.

I read a small quote last night and I've decided that even though the past couple years have been really challenging for us, my thought for the rest of this year and all of 2013 will be "there is always, always something to be thankful for." Thought it appropriate since tomorrow is our day of thanks. Wish you all a day of love and laughter with all of your loved ones tomorrow!

Today:
Up and out for me - the boys are sleeping in

Work for me till 3

Library with DH & DS8 - my DH has found a love of reading as of late and it has encouraged my youngest to also read more. One more reason to be thankful!

Bake pumpkin rolls for tomorrow

Get instructions for the care of my DS13's friend's Russian Tortoise. He will be dropping it off for us to take care of while they are in Disney for the next 8 days.

Pack to go to my parent's house for the weekend (yep, the tortoise is going too). Going black Friday shopping with mom & DH, while my DSister takes care of the boys. I must be crazy!

That's about all. Happy Turkey Day to you all and safe shopping if you are braving the masses this weekend.

I'm working. When I got here there was no heat. It is now working. Shoot! I wanted to leave early! (I probably will anyway, but even earlier ).

I hope you all have a great day tomorrow. Enjoy your families and be thankful for all you have.

Have DD#1 bake something. We normally do pies but my mom isn't doing them till after dinner and I don't feel like driving out there to pretty much turn around and come back, since I have to do it tomorrow, then Friday for rehearsal, then sat for the stupid wedding. Waste of time and gas this weekend. Ohh and I'm supposed to bring girls in at 11am for hair on sat when wedding isn't till 3. That's just asking for cranky kids. And I've repeatedly told them that neither girls hair holds a curling iron curl. Soooo they have to be wrapped the night before. Errrgg!
Pick DD#s up
Home
Relax
Maybe a movie
Bed!

Home and my list is almost done. A few last minute things to pack and then a quick trip to Old Navy before DH gets home.

I discovered several years ago this Black Friday Trick with Old Navy. You go in before the craziness begins, and buy the sale items that you want at full price. Then simply bring in your receipt on Black Friday and they give you a price adjustments with sale prices. I love doing this because then you don't have to dig through crazy piles of clothes not to find the size you need as well as juggle through a lot of people. I know other stores do it as well. You still have to go into the store, but at least you can go straight to the register. Shhhhhhh!!! Don't tell too many people my secret!!

Happy Thanksgiving Ladies!!

That's a great idea! We did that at Wal-Mart last year. Found the stuff we wanted to put on layaway and did so in October. Then waited until they or another store ran a sale and went in and price matched it. We knew we were getting everything we wanted (video games, 3ds and such) without fighting crowds and found a sale price or black friday sale on everything we had.

Afternoon all,

A Thanksgiving miracle - my DH somehow got the next four days off! Soo, we will be heading to Vero Beach in the AM (vs. Friday) to have Turkey dinner with our Canadian Besties (who have just landed in Orlando!). While I had planned to make dinner here today (with leftovers for Thursday) - I'll make our Turkey on Monday

Today:
Once over the house
Finish packing
Wrap besties Christmas presents
Pay bills
Scrap
Order pizza for dinner

Hope everyone has a great day and a Happy Thanksgiving

Becky

Good idea Michelle. I was planning on going Sunday. I need a few things for the trip. Too bad I don't have time to go now.

Jen, enjoy your day off!

Yay for early dismissal for you Jennifer!!!! Glad the heat is fixed!!!

Worked at school today for their Thanksgiving feast.. it's the last time all 218 kids are all together because starting next year they pick their own classes and some don't see each other except for passing thru halls.... It was a little sentimental for some..especially for the parents that this is their first child.. My friend and I were giggling as we have been thru it before but we so know how the other parents are feeling...

Took PJ to lunch.. now she is off to her work to see the kids and check her schedule for Christmas break.. she needs some hours to pay for some sorority expenses.. at least they tell them early so the kids can budget...

Safe travels to all that are hitting the roads soon!!!!
