Ahh, Thanksgiving. A time to think and reflect on what you are thankful for. I am so fortunate, there is so much for me to be thankful for.
I am very excited because my mom is flying to Nashville to visit us for Thanksgiving. She'll be here tomorrow early evening. I haven't seem my mom since April, so I am SUPER excited!!! I'm sad that my dad won't be joining her in the trek to Nashville, but I understand why he decided to stay home (sorta). My mom and I always have a great time while she's here. We LOVE to go downtown to Second Ave. and live it up at the honky-tonks. By far, our favorite is Tootsies Orchid Lounge. We get there early (around noon!) and belly up to the bar to listen to live music, people watch, and of course, drink beer!!
I, however, am NOT a fan of shopping. In fact, the whole idea of Black Friday kinda sounds like torture to me. Did you know there are stores opening at 4:00 AM on Black Friday?!?! Um, yikes. My mom is a serious shopper. When we were younger, we would spend Thanksgiving at a hotel so my mom and aunts could hit the stores early. She LOVES getting up and being at the door before it opens and getting the best deals. I am considering just handing her the keys and drawing a map to the nearest Kohls.
My mom will be here until Tuesday afternoon. I am taking a little time off work on Monday, and then coming in for story time on Tuesday morning before spending the rest of the day with my mom. The coolest thing about that is she is going to come to work with me and watch me do story time!!! She's never seen that before, so I am super excited to have a special guest. And, in honor of our special guest, I am planning on reading books about moms!!! 'Cuz moms are special!!!
Anyway, I might not be around my blog for a couple days. I want to wish everyone a happy, healthy, safe, fun, relaxing and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!!!
