Have you seen that episode of Veggie Tales? The rendition of the Good Samaritan? Where they sing the song "Busy, Busy"? (I tried to find it on youtube, but apparently the only video of it had the audio disabled because of copyright...)
Well that song has been running through my head lately... This past weekend I volunteered at our church's high school youth group fall retreat. I feel like I should be catching up on my sleep right now while Abby's asleep... but I'm writing instead. :) And this week is Thanksgiving here in the U.S.! Our local schools only are in session today and tomorrow. Thursday my family will be double-dipping -- heading to Rocky's mom's side of the family for noon-ish turkey lunch, and to his dad's side of the family for evening-ish appetizers and finger food snacks. Lots of fun times with family!
I'm not a Black Friday shopper. I used to be a Black Friday worker. And I did enjoy it actually. Getting to the store at five in the morning, preparing to open the doors at six. The non-stop flow of customers, helping people find what they need, and hopefully not running out of our doorbusters too quickly...
But this year I will be thankful to be able to sleep in on Friday. Maybe I'll check out some online deals, from the comfort of my own home.
Sunday will feature yet another turkey dinner, at my mom's house this time.
And the next thing we know, it will be December.
They say time seems to go by faster the older you get. This year seems to be passing me by like a freight train.
In the midst of everything going on in your lives the next month, make sure you take the time for fun. Play in the snow with your kids. Go drive around and look at Christmas lights. Get in your pj's and read the Christmas story. Savor that last bite of pumpkin pie. You've gotta wait a whole nother 12 months until you get to do this again...
What types of things do you ENJOY doing this time of year?
