Catch Up Time
Our wood stove is the perfect place to hang out at the end of the day.
Today I am feeling overwhelmed......There are just so many 1/2 done projects going on around the house I don't know where to start. What should have been just a few run in and out errands turned into hours this morning. I didn't expect that so many stores already had their Black Friday sales going on, how could I pass them up sine we NEVER EVER go out on Black Friday? I will have to share the clothing super deals I picked up on tomorrow's post, holy cow!!!! I knocked out close to a dozen Christmas gifts at 50%-80% off!!! Go me!!!
The other thing that is on my mind/heart is Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. Food, Family, Fun, Football, The overwhelming Feeling of Gratefulness for all we have. The world seems to be just skipping over this special family time of the year. Thanksgiving is being taken over by what I consider the greed of business that think they MUST be open on Thanksgiving day, don't get me started on Black Friday, GRRRRRRRR
Can we not take just one day off a year to just BE........Be thankful, Be happy, Be Grateful, Be together, Be in our homes, Be so full of yummy food we can't get off the sofa? Is it really so important to purchase more stuff that most people don't even need that we can't take one day to join together with family and friends to bow our heads and give thanks?
That's my rant for the day :) Now I need to figure out where I am going to hide all these Christmas gifts before the big and little kiddo's find them
