So What Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone!

So What Wednesday


Oh my, one day until Thanksgiving.  While this day is mostly reserved for family and formality and heavy eating, I will only be participating in two of those items:
* family
* heavy eating

The hubs and the babies and I are celebrating that day of THANKS with pajama pants, a fire roaring all day, snacks and Chinese for dinner.  While many of you may poopoo the lack of tradition, I argue that our day reflects the full essence of the day.

While I won't be {physically} with every person that I am thankful for - I promise you.
I
AM
THANKFUL.

I have an amazing husband and children - thought they may drive me to drink boxed wine and indulge in reality TV so I can feel "normal."
I have wonderful parents, who are even better grandparents to my kids.  Let's face it, anyone who thinks my kids are as great and beautiful as I do get a A+ in my book.
I have beautiful friends.  And I say beautiful to reflect both the inside and outside.  I always joked "I don't hang out with ugly people" and that is all too true.  Ugly people have ugly souls - and I just don't have the time or the energy for that.

SO WHAT
* The girls spent Monday at Grandma's and I didn't do a lick of housework (FINALLY!)
* Dr. Phil has become my new "mom" show to watch when no one is around.  I don't know if it's the crazy guests or the insight, but I just like it.
* I look at Pinterst on my iPad before bed every night.  It's like reading a good novel.  Except it's a fractured sentence and good picture at a time.
* I had a super high when my Jalepeno Cream Cheese Wontons were repins over 30 times in ONE day!
* I finally dumped the 17 remaining pounds of leftover Halloween candy into a Tupperware in the cupboard.  If we want it - we can find it.  But I don't have it staring me in the face!
* I'm excited for the Black Friday ads - I'm doubtful how much I'll take advantage, but it's fun to look and watch the craziest go nuts.
* Organizing and cleaning out CRAP brings me supreme satisfaction.  The lack of clutter is such a visual glory that I feel immense amount of pride.  This is probably the least problematic addiction a person can have - provide it does not develop into some freaky OCD cleaning thing.  I have small children.  This will be an unachievable goal, of which I'm aware.  Not a worry.
* We are spending Thanksgiving home, just the four of us.  You balk at the lack of tradition, but the way I see it, I am spending quality time with the things (people) I am most thankful.  Plus the parade, plus a fire in the fireplace, plus naps and probably some wine too.

Happy Thanksgiving all!!!

Great post! Here's to going against tradition - this year it is just me and my husband (the newlyweds) having our first Thanksgiving dinner together at home.

Happy Thanksgiving!
