We do pizza for Thanksgiving

I've accomplished more today than I have in the past week, it seems.  Three loads of clothes are out on the line, I've done up the dishes and knitting up to the toe decreases on the second Ocean sock.  I'm hurting now, but at least that much is done.  Tomorrow we'll clean out the car (although Zach's going to work on it a bit now) and maybe the rest of the house.  And bring the clothes in off the line. It's really a nice day today although foggy earlier.  It's in the 40s with sunshine and will be in the 50s tomorrow with more sunshine.  So I didn't have to use the indoor racks.  This time.  I'm pretty sure next time I will.

I'm not much for Thanksgiving Day celebrations.  Haven't done it for years and don't see any reason to start now.  It's just me and Zach and over the years we've come to just treating it like another day.  We tried going to other people's houses for T-day but it was awkward and not enjoyable at all.  So we do what we do and like it better.

I'm going to have to take the spinning dvd back as I haven't really got the time to finish it and since someone else is waiting on it, might as well get it to them as soon as possible so they can enjoy it.  I might try to get it again once things have gotten a bit more organized.

I read an article on craft fairs and flea markets and all the extra costs involved and to be honest, I don't think I've got it in me to do that.  So back to being extremely frugal and cost-cutting.  Maybe I'll figure out a way to bring in a dollar or two.  I hope so.

Zach and I are heading out in an hour for the library, Pizza Hut and shopping.  Nothing will be open tomorrow so we have to get it done today.  Although part of me wants to go out on Thursday to drive around and see everything closed.  I'm weird that way.  We'll get a large pizza and two salad bars and bring the rest of the pizza home for lunch tomorrow.  Maybe I can find a sugar-free pumpkin pie. I already have sugar free whipped topping.  The only thing about Thanksgiving meals I really miss as neither Zach nor I like turkey.

Well, I'm going to take a hot shower and a pain pill and get ready to go.

Thanks, Ashling. We've only been doing it for a few years, but will continue to make it a tradition. Only I think we'll go earlier next year. It got very noisy and crowded tonight.
