Happy Thanksgiving!

I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving Day full of warm fuzzies with family and friends!

I will not be cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the first time this year as my daughter-in-law of just six months has opted to perform the tasks!....she joined our family here last year and asked if she could do the honors this year and I was most happy to oblige, haha! is not a favorite thing of mine and she loves it!....our family is very small, it is just me, husband, our two boys, and now a daughter-in-law, so our little famly will be having Thanksgiving dinner in a small apartment in the city (Richmond) which will be different!

An Emotional Day

My baby moved out today, he is 18. Our oldest moved out two years ago and got married last year, we just have the two boys. The older one and his wife have been struggling to make ends meet, they have been renting a house in the city (Richmond) for the past year, it is a very old house and has cost them a fortune to heat and cool. They have tried to go it alone without the financial aid of a roommate but have conceded that they need the help. So that's where my baby enters the picture. He is the only roommate they'd even consider because he's honest, responsible, not a slob, and has worked at the same place since he was 16. (He works for a local grocery store chain, started out as a bagger and is now a cashier) When presented with the idea of moving out he decided that it was time for him to move forward. I told him that there was no rush to move out, that he should consider going to college, but he wants to give this a try plus he knows that his brother needs his help. The three of them have rented an apartment in a high rise downtown and today was moving day.

So I guess we are now officially empty-nesters, and I just don't know how to feel. Should I feel sad or glad? The only plus I can think of is that I will have a spare bedroom to decorate, haha. But I am going to miss my baby terribly, he and I are kindred spirits. I mean it's only about twenty minutes away but I am already worrying about him having clean sheets and towels. ::::sigh::::

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year....

I feel that Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year and I pray that nothing ever happens to change that. I feel so sad for those who have had tragedy strike during the holiday season and when Christmas brings nothing more than tears.

I spent some time this morning trying to "Christmas up" my blog and am going to ask my web site designer if she has any ideas on what I might be able to do to make my web shoppe look "Christmasy". Husband and I actually bought a new artificial tree this weekend. For the past several years we've had a 7.5 foot and with us going to be empty-nesters for the first time this season I decided that I wanted to try a smaller tree so we got a 4.5 foot that I'll place on a table in the spot where the big tree usually stands. This way I can use only my bestest ornies! That's all for now, enjoy the day and remember to vote tomorrow!
