The BIG WEEK.....

Well, it's here!  Our "big" holiday week.  Today we'll be cleaning up the place.... you know... picking up little things that have been left stacked here and there.... dusting those places that were "skipped" during the routine cleaning....putting away things that should have been put away weeks ago.  You know... that kind of day today.   And Tuesday will be last minute shopping.   And Wednesday will be the "prep day" to begin getting everything in order for the "big day," and fine-tuning anything that was left undone.  And Thursday... Thanksgiving Day.  The Mrs. will be up and beginning her cooking for the morning.  I'll be up, trying to prepare breakfast amidst all the upheaval going on.  But somehow, every year we make it through, and around 1:00, her family begins arriving.  This year we are expecting about 40...yes, FORTY... for Thanksgiving lunch!!  I know... CRAZY!!   But for now, today, we are excited as we look forward to this family tradition that's become such a part of us.  And now our kids.   And their kids.  I Love it!
