It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week. I am normally prepared for the holidays, but this year we had very strange weather. It felt like it was still late summer here until just last week. Maybe that is why I am thrown off.
I was so pleased that the Dh's new company sent our family a coupon for a free turkey, ham or vegtables up to $20.00. I have never heard of such a thing, but I am so greatful. That helps out a family more than I think they realize. What a wonderful way for a company to show they CARE about their employees. I think America has forgotton how to take care of each other. Sad isn't it? But when you see things like the coupon voucher, it reminds you that good people are out there. Something you don't see everyday, but it is so nice to be reminded of that everyonce in awhile.
I did most of my holiday shopping yesterday and thanks to that coupon and my other clipped ones I saved $30.00! YAY
This year is the first ever holiday that it will just be me, dh and the kids. I am so happy, I have been waiting 13 years to escape my in-laws and finally I HAVE VICTORY! I know, I know, but you all have no idea of the tortue I have been put through all these years......So finally I get the peace I have been praying for!!!!
What are all of your plans???
