Time flies...

I can't believe it, but Thanksgiving is just two and a half weeks away!  Of course, Carey's work schedule usually lends to us celebrating holidays on alternate days than anyone else.  This year we will be gathering on the Sunday before.  When I realized how short time was growing, I made up the menu (not hard, it's usually the same) and the shopping list.

I am THRILLED to say that except for some fresh produce, all of my grocery shopping is done.  No crowds.  No panic.  No stress.  And this shopping trip actually put the pantry in good standing for the Christmas feast as well.

After all these years, Carey is still a little resentful about so many holidays being worked away from the family.  In my view, any day can be a holiday when it is spent gathering and celebrating, so alternating from the norm doesn't bother me in the least.

Besides...when everyone else is rushing and slaving and cleaning, I am enjoying the Law & Order marathons and eating leftovers.  :) 

ps:  Seeing all those plastic bags in the photo brought me up short.  I hereby pledge to do better about remembering to take my reusable cloth bags with me.

  1. We don't have a choice anymore - you have to pay for plastic bags if you forget your own.

    Christmas is at our house again this year and I think its going to be a biggie! I am starting to panic already!

    Cheers - Joolz
