I have had a hard time staying focused on publishing my daily Thanksgiving post. It seems like this month is just slipping away. Here are the days I missed plus my weekly menu.
Thankful for our bowling group. Hubby and I started bowling on a Friday night league this year. Hubby has bowled for years but I have only done it on a league a few years before my daughter was born. We have a lot of fun and just hang out. It is technically a competitive league but no one makes it that way. We all encourage each other and reward each other when someone has a good game. Nobody takes it too serious. It is something that just Hubby and I do. The kids come along but all go watch a movie together at the owner's apartment that is attached to the building.
For our vehicles. Hubby and I both have vehicles that run. They may be older but they are still running. Hubby's truck is paid off and my van is getting closer. I am thankful that we are able to afford two vehicles. It makes transporting kids a lot easier that both of us have a vehicle.
Relaxing Sundays: Sunday is my favorite day of the week. We usually try to make Sunday a down day. We go to church and try not to plan anything else for the day. I try to have all the housework down also so we can just relax. This doesn't always work out but that is the plan. Some Sundays I make a big dinner ( I enjoy cooking so this doesn't seem like work) and then some Sundays we just have sandwiches. It is football season so we usually have a game on or we pick a movie to watch. Sundays is family time. :)
Food. :) We had a huge Thanksgiving potluck at work today and I was so full that I didn't need to eat dinner last night. It was nice fun event at work. Everyone in our department brought something and we just sat around and talked and ate. Of course we had to work in the afternoon but I think we all really just took a nap because it was very quiet yesterday afternoon.
Short Work Weeks. I am one of the luck ones that I don't have to work on Thursday or Friday so this is a short week for me. It has been a busy couple of weeks at work so i am ready for a few days off. We are going to my sister - in laws on Thanksgiving and then my daughter and I are venturing out for Black Friday shopping. My daughter loves to go so I am taking her. I am not sure what all we may find but we have going. I know I know some thing we are crazy and we are but it is something we do together and enjoy. she is 15 and I know that eventually she won't be here to go with so I am making the most of it.
Tuesday: Spaghetti & Garlic Bread
Wednesday: Ham n Beans. (That is if I remember to soak the beans I keep forgetting)
Thursday: Thanksgiving. All I have to do is the green bean casserole. Yay me !
Friday: Bowling night, and everyone is bringing food. Will feed the kids before we go so they are taken care of .
