I hope that all of you have had your fill of turkey/ham/turducken/tofurkey and enjoyed your time with your family. Me, I am thankul that I can use this four-day weekend to assuage some of my bad-Mommy guilt by doing some well-needed housecleaning. No Thanksgiving dinner for me, unless ABM brings me a plate from his grandma's house. I spent the earlier part of the day preparing the lower floor for possible drop-in visitors, and now I am taking advantage of my family's absence to clean M's cluttered little cave. Lest you think that I am ignoring my family, I've got a few games in mind for the little ones while M is visiting her cousins.
