Friday

I finished cleaning out my pantry last night. It looks so much better in there and I can actually find stuff! I wish I had of counted all the empty boxes that I threw away. This evening when everyone is at home I'll have yet another talk to those people that live with me about the importance of throwing away the empty boxes instead of just throwing them back into the pantry.

I don't have much to do today. Wesley is here. Mallory went back to her Dad's last night and Carter is in school. Carter and Wesley will be with their Dad this weekend so I will get to see a lot of Carter. He spends a lot of his time with us when it is his weekend with his Dad, since he will only be 4 houses away from us. I'm sure he will be excited to be here and help with the flooring installation. He loves to help. Many times when he is here with me he will ask to help me clean. I give him a rag and he will go to town dusting. He also likes to fold wash clothes and kitchen towels.

I'm not cooking tonight, we will either go out or get take out. I'll also be going to Walmart I guess.
I need to start shopping for my Thanksgiving meal since I will be cooking. Tina had talked about cooking for us, but has changed her mind. Tina cooked last Thanksgiving and it was so good!
I had hoped to get a free turkey at Farmers Foods but I don't have enough feathers. The store has been running a promotion, spend $50.00 and get a feather. collect 6 feathers and get a free turkey. I only have 3 feathers.
Once I decide on my menu for Thanksgiving I'll post it.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!

Do I take the turkey out of the freezer today? Im going to make those cookies on thanksgiving it will give me an ave something to do, maybe we can make that a tradition. I made monkey crunch today. I told Justin to lets make something different on x-mas but he wants ham. Last x-mas eve we had a mexican fiesta. Lasagna sounds good, you should post the recipe. I went to the build a bear but couldnt buy anything because the toy i returned was credited to the bank card and that takes a few days:( If Justin sends his paycheck to the bank after 3pm it's not available until Monday:( I just spent the last 45 dlrs til Monday:( 15 of that gave me over a half tank of gas:)))
