Thanksgiving is around the corner...

Monday, November 18, 2013

I was thinking of this last week as a restart. Delete all the previous blogs and begin again. My life is in a different place now. It is hard to go through the archives in Spark without it taking hours to do. I have about 80 pages of old blog. I'm sure I've written about the same subject matter in more than one. But it isn't like it clouds my storage or anything. Can someone meet a blog quota on this site? LOL.

Then again, I don't want to take the time to delete them either.

I'm so excited about Thanksgiving. I love the Christmas trees, shows, commericals, music. I'm closeted about it. I'm not sure you can call that a word. I love it all though. It makes me think of when I was younger and spending Christmas with all my family. It probably also reminds me of wanting to spend which I should not do because I'm on a budget but I'm also a very good window shopper. emoticon

I also get excited over all the food too. Many memories of good food. Lots of things trigger an emotional food response for me. I wish I wasn't so emotionally tied to food in the way that I am.

I'm terrified I'm not going to fit in the airplane seat this year. emoticon

On a good note I've been on the 5000 IU of Vitamin d3 for a week now. I hope it will produce good results. We got the budget going good this month. I've paid all the bills ahead of time too. Feels good.

Anybody out there got plans for Thanksgiving. I know not everyone celebrates with big families but since it is a holiday, do you have anything in particular planned as well?

    I love the holidays too! I love christmas time, the music, the lights, the trees, it all makes me happy happy happy! I went to branson Missouri for the holidays and could have stayed out there for a couple of weeks! Something about being in the mountains...

    Don't delete your blogs! I think it is good to go back and reference...sometimes you can't remember what workd before and you read the blog and it jogs your memory!

    I have too many old blogs too but not enough time to get rid of some. Maybe some day.

    I love the holidays too but am not much into shopping. I like the sights and sounds and smells and tastes of the holidays.

    We are hoping the weather will be okay so our son can come home for Thanksgiving.

    Hi, Neilsonlady, I'm going to my nephew's for Thanksgiving. He just got married in August and they want to have a First Thanksgiving Dinner. It's so perfect this year; I usually have a huge Thanksgiving with lots of family, but this year I've been sick and I've been concentrating on going to a Trans Siberian Orchestra concert this Friday! I'm more excited about that than I am Thanksgiving!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Why delete the old blogs? Your history might be interesting to you some day.... Last Thanksgiving I started to gain weight and didn't stop til spring time so this year I'm going to be really, really careful and stay strong!
    All the best with your goals!
