Oh, my poor neglected blog!

Yes, I know, it's been a long time again. I'm sorry my blogging is so spotty lately. Fair warning - I don't expect it to be much better until after the holidays.

So far, this week has been a bit crazy. On Saturday, we went to a birthday party, and picked up the sister of our grandson. The little guy in still in the NICU (though we hope he won't be there much longer), and his sister has been bounced around a bit, so we are taking her until they are ready to bring her home. She is only 5 months older than our youngest, and they are having times of getting along well, and times of fighting. I certainly have a new appreciation for my sister that has twins!!

I've also been trying to prepare for Thanksgiving. The house is a lot cleaner than it was (though it still has a long ways to go.) And today I have switched some to the food prep for Thursday, and preparing our meal for 22. I've been chopping veggies, and cutting up meat and cheese for appetizer trays, and I'll boil eggs later for the deviled eggs my kids love, and try to make some dried beef dip. Tomorrow will be pie making day (I'm making 6 different ones - it's one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving), and I'll be making lots more things that can be made ahead of time. I sure hope the kids get along better tomorrow!

In the midst of all this, I've been trying to keep up with my online classes that I'm in right now, but I've decided that for today and tomorrow, I'm just going to have to take breaks from them. I've also been trying to figure out what I'm doing for Christmas cards, and working on getting some homemade gifts done.

That about sums up my life right now! In case I don't get back here before then, I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving, and get some great deals over the weekend! Take care!!
