Happy Thanksgiving!! Well, almost...

Seriously. Today could have been Thanksgiving. The turkey could be roasting right now. Mashed potatoes... and No Work! Yup, that could be today if this idea had been embraced...

Who couldn't use a Monday off.. I know I could. BUT, I guess, I don't really want to trade days. I mean, "Black Tuesday" just doesn't have the same ring to it. That mass of holiday weekend shopping just wouldn't be the same if it was on a Tuesday...

Black Friday. Two wonderful words... every year there seems to be a great reason to brave the darkness and head out before the family awakens. Reading sale papers while eating holiday leftovers is a tradition... looking for a deal, drooling over things we might wishing for, polishing off the maple pecan pie...  Last year, it was a lighted Christmas tree deal at Home Depot that had me in line at 4:30am. That was the perfect surprise for my parents as they celebrated their first Christmas in a new home...

Although, to be honest, I may just sleep in this Black Friday. I can't think of anything that will lure me out this year. Thanks to Amazon, most of our shopping is already done. And, a thanks to Heather, our Christmas cards are designed & ordered - for just $3 this year (you can get yours free, check her blog out!).  Its just too easy to order online and have it appear on my doorstep. No crowds, no traffic... and hey, I can shop in my pj's. It really doesn't get better than that!

Besides, I've already gotten the best gift I could have wished for:  a healthy family and wonderful friends. And, this year, I'm also thankful for becoming part of the 2010 Disney Moms Panel. I'll be starting my Moms Panel journey in only 10 days. Maybe this Black Friday will find me packing for my Dream trip.....after some Pumpkin cake and coffee for breakfast of course !
