No, I'm not out shopping. The sales, the savings, they call to me, but I have too much to do and I value the little sleep I do get too much to get up in the middle of the night to shop with hoards of other crazy people.

Yesterday was a wonderful tornado of eating and laughing and enjoying and realizing how thankful I am for every minute, and I'd love to talk more in depth about it all, but I'm just to darned busy. Why do you ask (as if I haven't mentioned it before, just go along with me, OK)? Well, since you asked, I am having 19 of Chris's side of the family over tomorrow for ANOTHER Thanksgiving dinner because that was the best way to get them all together and not wreak havoc with everybody's Thursday overbooking. So that's 23 people in my house on Saturday. Have I also mentioned that I have yet to clean up the dust from the Great Sanding of 2011? So there's that, too. And I think Chris also agreed for all of us to have dinner with some friends tomorrow night, so while that eliminates the need to cook another meal, it cuts into my prep and panic time. Can you tell I'm starting to freak out just a little?

Please send good vibes that I can keep all the balls in the air and get it all done without ruining my marriage, making my children hate me, or poisoning my in-laws. Back to work.
