More Thankfulness

This week is getting away from me without much time for describing all the things I'm thankful for, and I haven't even begun getting ready for Thanksgiving yet!

Today I was thankful for:

--an hour or so to finally get all the summer things put away and the winter things brought out for my youngest two

--making time to watch a History Channel special ("Digging Up History"--due back at the library tomorrow) on the archaelogical evidence for the Trojan War

--finding another hour to work on auditions (for "Godspell") with my three thespians

--trying a new quiche recipe and finding it yummy

Tomorrow, I'll be thankful to:

--plan a few meals ahead
--go grocery shopping
--pick up one more birthday gift for Blondechick-turning-15-on-Turkey-Day
--make sweet potato casserole, pesto salad dressing, pumpkin pie, birthday brownies and something simple for dinner!
--supervise the usual homeschool and chore routine
--post something on my blog

Hmmm...optimistic, wouldn't you say?

I am thankful, this year, that I'm not:

--hosting Thanksgiving dinner
--packing overnight bags
--driving over an hour
--doing Blondechick's birthday celebration with friends until next week

We'll be heading into the city (that's Chicago, for you out-of-staters) with my mother- and father-in-law, to the home of my brother-in-law, his wife, and my niece.

Ahhhh...I'm looking forward to it!
