My Poor Neglected Blog (a.k.a., Randomness)
As we head into Thanksgiving week ("Hell yeah!" for the 2-day school week!!!), we're facing some changed traditions. Last year we tried to do everything the same for Thanksgiving--even down to fixing dishes that Edna traditionally prepared. But, it was too soon after her death, and it was an empty holiday. I didn't want to do that again this year, and so we decided to go to the lake after dinner at my mom's. We'll have a dinner there, but not on Thursday, and there might not be turkey or the usual suspects being served. Hopefully the weather will be pleasant and warmish, and we'll get to have a boat ride or two before the weekend is over. Then we plan to close down and winterize the lake place for its long winter sleep.
For now, though, it's back to the Saturday routine of laundry and trying to keep some semblance of order in our cluttered existence. And tissues, lots and lots of tissues.
