ONe day closer to vacation next summer. I am getting my Christmas card list out to start them. I like to amke them out and send the pile out December 1. We have no family get together for Christmas, so just DD and I open gifts after church in the morning and I work Christmas eve, so the joy is from sending the cards with notes to friends and family for the holiday.
My friend Karen invited us to her home for Thanksgiving day dinner. I have to work, so she is having dinner in the afternoon. DD is allergic to her dogs (pugs) that continuously shed and climb all over everything in their home, so we will not be staying long..
We will probably make a dinner here for us to eat the next day since I work that day too. We are just blessed to have a warm home, food and good friends ..

    I should really take a page out of your book and get started on Christmas cards. I always end up never sending them out. We don't have a family get together either, just dh and I. I just consider it a way of avoiding stress. Before my MIL died and his family came up for Thanksgiving, I stressed for weeks beforehand.

    Sucks that you'll be working so much, though. Yuck!

    Hope you had a great Monday!

    Amen to this. We also quit the big "gift-giving mess" long ago and the kids opted to not exchange gifts at all...less stress on all but I still always give them money or such...but I hate how Christmas has gotten so commercial and I refuse to get involved...and the Lord is the number One in my life.

    I love your blogs...I can't wait for your vacation either because that means the Winter is over!

    Have a blessed night!
