It’s only December 4th, and I have already bought ONE Christmas present.
I know, right? I have 21 days left to shop. Lots of time to procrastinate. But something came over me, and I bought a present today! Craziness. I’m sure I’ll wait until Christmas Eve to wrap it, though. If I haven’t misplaced or forgotten about it by then.
Our Thanksgiving was fabulous! It may have seemed like I waited til the last minute to shop for groceries since my shopping debacle happened the day before, but really, I was 3 days early! For our Thanksgiving anyway. Since I had to work the day of, we made plans to have our big meal on Saturday. Chip came over early in the day, and we spent all day smoking turkey and pork butts, baking sweet potato casseroles, cheesy potato casseroles and two kinds of pie. In between we played board games and laughed til we cried. This was the first Thanksgiving we spent NOT at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, so I was worried it wouldn’t be the same. And it definitely wasn’t, but we seemed to appreciate each other so much more because of it. Before we all parted ways, we sat in front of Hubby’s computer to Skype with Link. He was in the process of moving into his new apartment. We could hear his friends laughing and joking with him in the background, and I new he was finally with people he likes and who like him.
Yes. It was a fabulous Thanksgiving.
And very close knit.
