What I'm Not Doing This Thanksgiving Weeknd


  • 1. Standing in line at 4am so I can be one of the first to charge Wal-Mart when they open the doors at 5am.

    2. Going to Garden Ridge Pottery on Thanksgiving Day to shop till I drop.

    3. Searching for an Xbox 360 – or any other video game for that matter.

    4. Watching a parade, either in person or on television.

    5. Attending a football in person. Since My Beloved is an “All Sports, All the Time” kind of gal I take the 5th when it comes to televised football.

    6. Putting up my Christmas Tree or decorations. That can wait till the daughters come home so they can help.

    7. Wrapping presents. Gift cards don’t need wrapping.

    8. Going through an airport metal detector.

    9. Cooking a mega course meal.

    10. Eating Green Bean Casserole. Or anything with marshmallows.


    What I am Doing

    Curling up on the couch with a good book, my laptop and some good blogs.

    Pure Bliss.

My mom and I were JUST talking about how we weren't going to go out ANYWHERE today where we might run into crazy shopping people. I don't really like malls on any day of the year, but I honestly think I might have a panic and/or asthma attack if I tried to do any shopping today. I think I'll follow your lead and sit down with a good book. Only a couple more days to do that before it's back to school. Hope your Thanksgiving was relaxing!

Hear Hear! Or is it here here? I dunno. Who are these people eating the green bean casserole anyhow?

Amen to no shopping! I spent most of today napping and reading. Today was one of the few days to relax I actually get and there was no way I was going to stress myself out by shopping.

Also, I've moved my blog, so I would be most grateful to you if you could update your link to me! :) Thanks!
