A Time to Clean, Eat...

I'm getting a jump start on my spring cleaning--I've come across an interesting system that I'm going to try. Something to help me not feel so overwhelmed by all the tasks in the house. This system covers everything from daily chores to seasonal tasks like cleaning windows. It gives a free day so you don't feel like you're always cleaning, and it allows for skipping tasks (or switching days if something comes up). It even accommodates working outside the home, too. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanksgiving snuck up on me--is it really next week? And not only that, we're not going anywhere so I have to cook! No one told me until this morning. The kids are out of school all next week, too... So now I have to plan Thanksgiving dinner and then cook it, too. Oh, joy. In my 15 years of marriage, I have only had to cook Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner a handful of times. How cool is that? I suppose though, that once my kids grow up and get married (and have kids of their own) the dinners will transition to my house--at least more often.

And Christmas and my trip to Nebraska are right around the corner, as well. I *have* started Christmas shopping as I'll have to ship my presents ahead--no room in our Scion xB for five of us *and* the gifts for sixteen people.

What are your Thanksgiving plans & menu?
