Around the Corner

Thanksgiving came and went and it was wonderful. My brothers and their families came. Did you ever notice that it takes hours to cook that big meal and only minutes to eat it?
Has everyone got their decorations out and up? We did ours on Sunday and it looks beautiful. I really need to take some pics but ............. Adding to my list of to dos. Never enough hours in a day. I would think with all the caffeine I drink that 4 hours of sleep a night would be sufficient. 
I took a nap on Thanksgiving. Black Friday shopping in my view. Getting up at 2:30 to go shopping. Did exactly that. Since the stores mostly opened at midnight the shopping was great. The major crowds were gone and I still got everything I had planned on getting. Well a few things extra. I know it is crazy but I love all the craziness of black Friday. Since my alarm was blaring at 2;30 it woke everyone up. Hey that worked out, they tagged along. :)
Back to work on Monday. Forgot to reset my alarm. Goes off at 2:30 am. I get up, get ready for work. Hmmm I wonder what is wrong with the dog. She didn't come down to eat and go out. I look at the clock, how much time before I have to leave? WHAT??? it is only 3:30. Lovely. Well I can't go back to sleep now, wide awake. It was a very long day at work. I am hoping by Friday to be getting up and going to bed at somewhat normal hours. As close to normal as possible anyway.
I hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving. So looking forward to Christmas.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

The snow has already started falling, the temperature is dropping, and it just all seems so wonderful. Winter is my favorite season. 
I hope everyone has something, many things to be Thankful for this year. 
I know we do. 
It has been a year since my husband had his surgery for brain cancer. He has had several tests since then and everything looks good. Thank GOD. He is doing pretty well since the surgery so other than wishing it didn't happen at all what more could we hope for. It has been a really rough year. Another friend had surgery, which led to another surgery, and then another, and then more. Another dear friend was diagnosed at the same time as my husband with Lung Ca. and he lost the fight just a few months later. This made it very scary for us. 
The year has come and gone. We are appreciating everything more. We are thankful for every minute. So Thanksgiving will be very special this year. 
I hope everyone will have a warm Thanksgiving.
