The holidays ... And the ability to give back ... Give it some thought

Well, we made it through Thanksgiving... And it wasn't THAT bad.

Friday was long.... Did my trip to the gym... No black Friday shopping... And then worked 2nd job... For 7 hours... Man, my dogs were barking!!!!!! My son and my mom finished the lights outside (started on Thursday).

Got some sleep, didn't have to get up this morning... Woo hoo!

My mom put the window lights up today and my son put up the tree. I am so not into the holidays... Especially today already.

I went grocery shopping and went to CostCo. Got an awesome free cookbook. Awesome! Recipes look totally awesome... And easy. Cool.

I then spent money on the gifts for the families we are hosting at work, for the holidays.

When planning your way through the holidays, please think about those who are not as fortunate as we are. Even a small gesture is well received. For the food pantry, $30 can buy baby food, cereal, peanut butter, veggies, and even canned items for meals.

At church, we have a hat and mitten tree. Don't have to spend a fortune... Just grab one thing on your way through the store.

This Christmas holiday has brought me the ability to provide (or at least help) others. It makes the holidays a little more special and not so commercial.

Thanksgiving break

My son is home and so am I. Today we have our family meal with my brother. My mom and son put up some of the Christmas decorations (bah humbug).

Tomorrow I have off too, but I will be at my part-time 2nd job. Not bad. I don't do black Friday shopping.... Worked retail 4 years..., no way do i shop that day. People can be idiots all year long, but they take it up a notch or two on Black Friday!

The last two days, all my son rambles on about is video games. I try to listen, but the voice in my head screams "I DON'T CARE!"

Oh well, it's another day....

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my followers!
May you have a safe, happy, and enjoyable holiday!

Note to self...

If you have cravings that might not be "normal," you can store them in your house, in plain sight... and not worry about then going anywhere... unless the fridge is empty and the world is ending.

In my house... it's red wine, greek yogurt, dill pickle potato chips, feta cheese, and habenaro jack cheese.

You can tell when someone has been in the chips because they look normal, but with the first bite... you will hear them screech!!!! Too funny.

Just random

Today is Tuesday, the weather is turning colder. It did try to snow last night and the temps did drop. I still had my bedroom window open and my fan on... and a cat curled up under the covers.

I wish I could get to the next stage in my life, but I am struggling. I want to find happiness and find that place that makes me smile.

Sometimes I wonder who I am or where I am going. Do I even know? Is there a clear road?

Or am I on my own to wander and make the decision as I go?

the duty of grocery shopping

I go grocery shopping, I have my routine, I do things a certain way, I go at a certain pace, and let me tell you.... After taking my son along today, my routine does not include a 2nd person!!!! On my heels. Bitching because I'm walking too fast, or because I keep stopping. Yep, grocery shopping is a one-person job.. mine... Just me.... It's been a long time since he has gone shopping with me... And after today... It was be another long time until it happens again!!!!!!
