By 4pm yesterday, I was not feeling thankful for much of anything. I am so sick of trying to sell this house, I could cry. I did, actually. Bawled my head off to my sister over the phone.
Daycare Thanksgiving was so fun, but I totally forgot at 2:25pm when our showing showed 20 minutes early. No, I wasn't quite ready. Yes, I have a lot of kids to get out the door during naptime. No, I don't think I forgot anyone. Yes, I have to pee and had planned to do that at some point between 2:25 and 2:45...but, I'll just hold it. Really, it's no problem. So. Over. It.
Thankfully. I did take pictures, and now I can recall that we did have fun, the kids were adorable, the turkey was pretty awesome...and the pumpkin pie was outright amazing. And yeah, even tho I ended up having a semi-meltdown on 1st street, I did get that kitchen and the rest of the house all cleaned up and everyone out the door with coats and shoes on by 2:27. *Toot Toooooot* (that's me, tooting my own horn, thankyouverymuch)
Everyone got to pick an item to add to the menu. Rugger doesn't think he got to pick something, but I'm pretty sure he and I discussed pickles...or maybe Ryleigh picked two...the details are a little fuzzy. I'm making cherry/cinnamon/applesauce Jello for real Thanksgiving, just to make it up to him.
Who loves a big eater? This gal! This guy is so fun to feed, because he eats with such enthusiasm, it makes me feel like I served a really great meal every single time.
Rugger did some great handwriting practice with those place cards. Love that kid.
We have so much fun messing with this baby :) I promise we did not feed her any pie, but the kids and I had fun staging this pic. "There mom! She looks guilty...did you get that!!?" So fun.
#16 Awesome daycare families!
#17 Kids who sleep through the night.
#18 Vehicles that run reliably.
#19 Food in my refrigerator.
#20 Laundry machines that work :)
#21 Sleeping in. (Tomorrow. It's happening.)
I fell asleep at 8:40pm last night, had a great workout this morning, and I'm feeling much better now (besides fearing that body might seize up at any moment, yowsa!). So thankful for a new day! I'm so looking forward to Thanksgiving with my family, holding a brand new baby, and leaving my kids with G'ma for a day so I can knock out my Christmas shopping in one wild 24 hour money-spending spree.
