Disjointed + MMMM

I would love to say I am back to normal blogging but this week will probably be another interruption. Monday and Tuesday will be normal workdays but after that, it’s all family to-dos; Thanksgiving with lots of people, traveling and all that jazz.

I’m talking myself out of the stress I usually experience in that type of situation. So far, I am very mellow. However, I haven’t begun packing yet and inevitably, that’s when the weight of the upcoming trip will finally hit me. I can’t get freaked out about all the little details because I won’t be able to function that way. Fact of the matter is, I have to deal with my immediate family, the extended family, Thanksgiving meal, and try to squeeze in my running and my online job. I want to say I’m awesome enough to do so.

Our weather has been wonky lately. It was warm for a while and then it got cold then tapered off to simply cool. And enjoyable. The tick problem we had over the summer up and disappeared. Then the weather got confused and turned warm and muggy again and the ticks reemerged.Β  I am eagerly awaiting the next big cold front in hopes they’ll go away again. I’m tried of picking them off our poor dogs.

I feel the urge to Christmas shop but must temper myself, as I only have a little money now, but will have more soon. I don’t want to buy the kids too much stuff because I feel like our house is full of toys as it is. On weekends,Β  I can’t tell just what they play with and how many toys go unnoticed. Oh, maybe some day they’ll be rediscovered but I feel like we just HAVE too much at this point. And it looks like my mom’s copping out; says she’ll get ideas from me and just give me money. That’s no fun and though I don’t want her going overboard for them, I think she ought to buy them SOMEthing.

But let’s not get too far ahead. Thanksgiving comes before all the crazy Christmas buying. SO… This week’s Monday Music theme is songs about thanks for that you’re thankful for. The following is both for me:

Golden Girls somehow made this comeback not that long ago when Betty White became the sole living Girl. But I have watched each episode at least 5-6 times each and don’t regret it one bit. πŸ™‚

  1. It’s going to be a crazy busy week – especially for you with traveling for Thanksgiving. I always try to have all my Christmas shopping done by Thanksgiving – so I can spend the subsequent days afterwards wrapping presents while watching Christmas movies and shows. πŸ™‚ But alas, like the past couple of years, I’m already behind. Good thing my family out West doesn’t seem to mind getting their Christmas gifts for New Year. πŸ˜‰

    LOVE your song choice – it’s PERFECT! And I love the Golden Girls, too. πŸ™‚ Have a great week, my friend! And Happy Thanksgiving! πŸ™‚

  2. Everyone is going to be pulling their hair by the week’s end. Try not to stress too much. It looks like great minds think alike again. I also used the Golden Girls theme song this week. lol. I hope you have a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving in surround by family and friends. God bless!

  3. As far as traveling for the holidays I live in the suburbs & my children live closer to the city & so does my brother. I even have one daughter out to State. Most of the time they come by me & hubby’s family is right here in town. I like Stacy get early shopping done. I do not envy anyone who has to travel for the holidays. That’s a lot of pressure. Anyway hugs to ya – Happy Thanksgiving – Great choice in songs (so that a few times today) & thanks for playin’ along with us.
