Happy Thanksgiving!!

This year I have felt like a bit of a scrooge with the holidays. We didn't decide to cook a Thanksgiving meal until yesterday at 3:00. Brad and I made a turkey breast, corn pudding, green bean casserole, and bread for our mini-meal. It was a quiet day without the rushing around that normally occurs, which was nice for a change. We were joined by 3 furry friends instead of humans, which left more food for us!

In a year that has been one of our hardest, I am happy to say that I can still look at everything I have and count my blessings. There are other people who are worse off than we are. Here are a few of the things I am thankful for:
  • Brad
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Daisy Girl
  • Having a job that I enjoy
  • We can live off of one salary
  • Health
  • Many, many more things!!
I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving and welcome to the holiday season!

Where has the month gone?

I feel like this year is flying by!! November has been uneventful, which is fine with me! I started the month off with bronchitis, which I seem to get at least once a year. After staying home from work for 2 days, with Brad taking care of me, I felt MUCH better! We had a chili cook off through school that I planned. It was a fun weekend but a busy one making sure we have everything that we need. Our team didn't win but we had a fun time. Brad has found a few job opportunities in the area and applied for them. However, nothing yet. I have to remind myself every now and then that everything happens in God's timing.

We are getting ready for our trip to Florida. We finally sat down last night and made a flexible plan as to where we will be and when. I'm excited to meet Cross and get to hold him. I'm also excited for our cruise over Christmas as well as spending time with family members. As for Thanksgiving, we are hanging out at home and having a quiet break. I am looking forward to the break. This is the first time all year we have had any days off so I have plans to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! Well, I am working on a little surprise and this will give me time to finish it (hopefully). I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.
