I so wanted to blog yesterday but due to the large amounts of chaos that goes on in our household during this time of year, it really wasn't an option. I hope you all stuffed your faces with pumkin pie and lots of turkey. I also hope you didn't puke. Sadly though, this Thanksgiving will go down in the books as the Turkey Disaster of 2011 in our family. I can't give out any details except that emotions spiraled from excitement, to shock, then frustration, tears soon followed after, which soon led to large amounts of anger, then back down to frustration. Entertaining? Yes. Would I want to see it happen again? My goodness no. After all, the true meaning of Thanksgiving, of course, is to thank God for all the blessings He has bestowed on us. We need to thank Him not only for the good, but also for the bad because that's how we manage to get closer to Him. He is amazing in everything that He does and we should all thank Him with all our little hearts.
HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY!
One of the most dangerous days of the year where you can buy a huge television at half the price while also at risk of being shanked. I wonder what other countries think about us when they watch this strange ritual. I have never had the pleasure of waiting for hours on end in line on this joyous day. I did, however, head out to Walmart with my mom. That was really frightening. Some lady almost rammed us with her shooping cart to get to a Dora the Explorer kitchen playset. People were grabbing last minute items and running for their lives to pay for it before someone chased after them to snatch it. The people who worked there just looked like zombies and I seriously felt bad for them. If you went shopping at midnight or early this morning, I have a lot of respect for you. I hope you wore some type of helmet and body pads for protection.
I am currently listening to Christmas music. My heart is utterly singing with so much joy along and I can't help but smile. Can you guys give me an idea as to when I should put up my mini Christmas tree? I'm so excited I can't settle on a date. Even the weather outside is starting to look all wonderful. Oh goodness. I'm in pure bliss. I hope you all are enjoying this time of year as much as I am.
