Two twelve hour days in a row is a bit much for this old lady.  I was dazed and confused and really tired last night.  Still, I was up until mid-night talking to my college kids who are home for Thanksgiving.  But this morning I slept and I slept and I slept.  My husband got up and went to work, but I slept on.  The phone rang but I slept on.  The alarm clock went off and I slept on.  Finally, at 11:00 a.m. I woke up really upset because I couldn't get my class back on the bus in downtown Minneapolis and a few kids were missing and no one would help me find them and if we didn't leave immediately we were going to get back to school too late for the kids to make their buses home.  HELP!!  Oh, never mind, that was just a dream.

But it seemed so real.  And I was really frustrated.  Has that ever happened to you?

I am cooking tomorrow so I will be swamped.  I won't be nervous though because it will just be my own kids (minus the oldest one and his wife as they live in D.C. and the youngest one as he is still in Latvia) and my mother.  My brother and his wife and their 5 kids will come over for pie after they eat their Thanksgiving meal with the other side of the family.  It should be a pretty low key, relaxed holiday.  Doesn't that sound nice?

We are kicking off the festivites with the movie Up tonight.  A nice fire in the fireplace, popcorn, and a good movie.  Should be fun.  Then, tomorrow the big meal and a nap and a football game or two, maybe a walk and then a movie at the theater.  I think we are going to see The Blind Side.  We always see a movie on Thanksgiving night.

I will NOT be shopping on Friday.  I hate to shop and I really hate it when there are crowds.  I may stop in a few White Bear Lake Shops but that's all. 

Let me know what you are up to.  Hope you are better Brady.     I'll write again later this weekend.  Miss you.  Mrs. K
