Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you are all able to celebrate (if you do) with your family and friends. I am going to be spending the day (if I ever get over there!) with my parents. My dad is doing the majority of the cooking--he does the turkey every year. My mom makes the mashed potatoes (and every year I ask that she try not to have lumps!) We also will have apple and pumpkin pie--with cool whip--for dessert!

This year I am thankful for many things. I'm thankful for some time off work, that I have my family and friends, for the new friendships I've found this year and some old friendships that have gotten closer. I'm also thankful that people have put up with me the past few months considering how crabby I have been and that I've had to make some big decisions.

I am going to be moving in Dec. This was not an easy decision for me and it's one that I'm not 100% excited about yet. I really like the apartment and the area. It will just be different. I'm looking forward to a new adventure and looking forward to starting somewhere. I just wish it didn't mean I would have to move again. I really am tired of packing and moving. The thought of doing it again makes me want to stay in bed all day. I have so much stuff. So this weekend I am going to be going through my closets (yes, all of them!) and figuring out what I don't need and getting rid of it. This will be a challenge for me as I am a huge pack rat...but I am determinded. I need to down size to be able to have a reasonable move that does not drive me insane (or to drink!)

Tomorrow is my shopping day of the year. Most people think I am crazy for shopping tomorrow but I try to get all of my shopping done that day so that I don't have to go again in this crazy shopping world! I usually succeed at this or I just need to pick up a few small things after tomorrow. So I am excited.

Which means I need to finish getting ready so I can get to my parents house and check out those ads!

What are you thankful for this year?

oh man, I hate moving too! Done it too many times. But I'll do it at least once more in my life, I'm sure. Hope you got some good bargains!

Did you get any great bargains? I stayed home and did all my shopping online. :-)
