Yes, that is me! Such a bloggin' slacker! Life has been busy, you all know the routine :)

Thanksgiving was much to be thankful for. I have my health, a wonderful loving family, a nice home to live in, there is nothing I could want or need that isn't supplied to me. I have a wonderful God who is my strength. Yes, life is good!

Me, my mom, Peggy, and my friend Krista went shopping on Black Friday. Target was a flippin' madhouse!!! Women clanking carts into other carts and giving each other dirty looks, sheesh. So I told myself the next woman I see do this I am going to say something, hehe. 20 seconds later it happens again, CLANK, and then the scowl. So big mouth me blurts out, "well, what do you expect? There are 300 women, and 200 carts in a tiny area and you don't think you're going to run into each other?" I mean honestly...if you can't come out in a good mood and come to expect how BUSY it might be then maybe you should stay at home! I think it is great to go out early and search for bargains and I do so with a smile on my face the whole time. I'm not there to grab the last cabbage patch kid :) I love a good deal as much as the next person but they are just material objects...I just don't understand people getting upset over these things is all :)

We got our Christmas lights up over the weekend. This time of year always goes WAY too fast. It is so busy and chaotic that sometimes it is hard to celebrate the season, KWIM? I have the tree up and the lights on it, but no ornaments yet. I'm waiting until we have time together as a family to start that. I have been working hard on PTA things and tomorrow is "Dad's Night" at Harlan so hopefully I will have some time after that.

I haven't had much time to scrapbook :( There are lots of ideas swirling in my head that I REALLY want to get down on paper. My space is a total disaster area and should probably be cleaned before I tackle any new projects!!!

And I about knocked myself out today, seriously. I put the ladder up to the attic (well, I thought it was up) and it came crashing back down, straight on my noggin. Yep, I saw stars and kept telling myself not to pass out. It was bad...REALLY BAD. I have a nice lump on my head and will definately make sure that sucker is ALL the way up next time, hehe.

On a GREAT note I am done nursing!!! And Chloe has slept ALL night 3 nights in a row now...that is wonderful!!!

Chad and I spent Saturday night at friends house playing Texas Hold Em'. Can you say new addiction???! I kicked butt!!!!!!

We are also currently looking for land so if you know of several acres for sale in the Harlan/Grabill/Leo area...let me know!!!
Well, I'm off to make my speech for Dad's Night tomorrow!

I will leave you tonight with some jokes from Taylor :)

What did the boy octupus say to the girl octupus?

I want to hold your hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand

What's the best food when it's cold outside?

A burrrrrger

Your mini album looks adorable - shopping the day after Thanksgiving is definitely a challenge! Glad you hung in there and controlled yourself, LOL :)

Love imagining you kickin' butt - at Target, at Texas Hold 'Em, tellin' jokes! Good to hear that Thanksgiving was good, the lights are up, and that you are still alive after getting nailed by the ladder.

Hope that the week ahead is fun and productive! Let's give a great big cheer for the end of nursing! Yay!
