All that prep work.. all the planning..organizing..stressing..and POOF!! The meal is over within a half hour!! How does that happen?? I wish I had a 'pause' button some days.. to keep all the kids here.. home with me.. safe and protected..
Sara flew out early this morning from LAX allll by herself to head to S. Carolina to visit her best friend. Her first time flying solo.. I am so proud of her.. she is so brave! Tim keeps reassuring me that if she can manage to find her way around LA and all the freeways...she'll surely make it thru the airports just fine :) (Im so thankful that tim keeps me in 'check' and keeps supporting my heavy heart) But still...Im the 'momma'..and momma's worry...it's our job :)
Heard from the family (back in NY) yesterday..that they were blessed with SNOW for Turkey day!!!!! How unfair is that?? lol We sorta kinda came close to snow here..it dipped down to about 40 overnite the other nite lol... thats about as close as we'll come im afraid. :( Although one year, we did have one freakish snowstorm day back in March? a couple of years ago! It was SO WEIRD!!
We had a couple of inches...and some places in Murrieta (at the higher levels) got more!!! ahhhhhhhh how i sooooo miss that exciting weather!!! :(
But Im thankful for where I live..where the sun is usually shining every day of the year..and our family is alot healthier since moving here.
And Im thankful for those wonderful childhood memories filled with Snow days and Blizzards..the sounds of the snowplow coming down our street..the icy crunching underfoot..snowmen making.. making snowangels.. catching snowflakes on your tongue..sledding down our back hill.. iceskating on the frozen Erie Canal.. and making the trek across the frozen canal to my grandpa's house for fresh, warm homemade Polish cookies.. for me to reflect back on and smile :)
Happy Post Turkey Day to all of you.. Im thankful for having met such wonderful people thru blogland
