Plans for this weekend, Nov 26 & 27?

What are your plans for the rest of Thanksgiving weekend? Shopping? Relaxing? Christmas tree? All of the above?

My DH is working today, so Aidan and I will be braving the crowds at Target for some overdue baby shopping. I figured I might as well since we have nothing else to do today, as long as it's not too crazy. If it is we will hide away somewhere for a while. But, like I said, this is overdue baby shopping. I need to get my rear in gear (I guess it would be really overdue if the baby had already come ). I feel like we were so prepared when we had Aidan and this time we are so relaxed that I'm needing to remind myself we don't have much longer to go. Tomorrow, however, we will relax. Maybe make an apple pie...

Have a great weekend everyone!

Now that I have the crud that my sister brought over, I'm not doing much of anything! I've cleaned out closets that REALLY needed it, hoping to sweat some of it out. Not working so well, so, if you don't see me on here too much, I'm in bed.

planned to do nothing, but, kids said what's for dinner sunday, soo, I got up and made it to the market through holiday shoppers, set on RUDE mode...Then stopped at toy's "R" us, couldn't get a parking space so I came home, unloaded the car, cleaned out the refridgerator, you know shuffle stuff about, take some out to the 2 refridgerators in the garage, then stuff everything back in... Fed the two little kittens someone dumped last sunday, had a cup of coffee and rubbed a prime rib with cracked black pepper and grey salt for dinner tomorrow. Now I'm parked right here for some fun..How long this will last is anbody's guess Next I need to figure out a dessert for tomorrow..yikes...
is it time for bed yet?

College football is on tv...I'm taking down all my autumn/Thanksgiving decorations and piling them on my table - along with all the china, silver and glassware from Thanksgiving dinner...YIKES! It's a mess. Tomorrow I'll be packing it all away while I watch the NFL games.

Relaxing mostly. Cleaning, laundry, cooking. Oh I went to Kmart today and bought some Christmas lights for the front porch, blue ones, and some silver garland to wrap around my posts on the porch. It was cold and snowing but what the heck. Those blue lights really look nice against the snowfall! I didnt do alot of shopping on Black Friday, not much into crowds and lines for things I dont really need. This week should be a quiet time at the stores :)

My mom and I went to a craft's faire, yesterday, in Reno, NV and avoided all department stores.

Today, I helped my mom deliver her goodies that she made to sell at a local Christmas faire. She made chocolate fudge, mixed nut brittle, peppermint bark, fudge tarts, orange cranberry bread, pumpkin bread, and 4 kinds of cookies. Whew, it makes me tired just listing all the stuff that she made.

Tomorrow, I am going to put some bean soup on to simmer on the stove all day with ham hocks. Make an apple pie for the guys at work. Relax. Do laundry and other stuff around the house.

Sierra, the guys at work must love you to death! I don't plan on doing anything, myself. I still have 2 cords of wood that needs to be stacked but I'll get to it when I get to it. I'm being lazy, what can I say?

HB is working second shift all weekend, so I'm doing what I can for the cause.

Corazon, when my second baby was over-due (10 days with both girls), I got on my hands and knees and paste-waxed and buffed my hardwood floor. I didn't really need a buffer, as my belly dragged the floor as I moved along.
When my oldest had her baby, he was 10 days late as well, so I just figured we aren't average when it comes to our gestations dates. When my second daughter had hers, the doctor tried to hurry things along, but little Jesse came out when he was good and ready...10 days late.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Just got home from a baby shower for a cousin's daughter. Had a very good time. Tomorrow, SH and I will bravely face the crowds at the mall.
