I finally did it—had the whole family over for  Thanksgiving dinner. Did I say the WHOLE FAMILY??? Well not all of them came, and if they did it would have been standing room only. LOL  I had enough food to feed an army and then some. At last count I believe it was 21 bodies. Two tables and TV trays made it so everybody could at least sit and eat. It was  noisy and crowded, but I really love having my kids together. I remember when I had a Thanksgiving dinner at my little small, did I mention tiny?, house I thought that was crowded!  Now the family has grown to a lot of little  children running around. It can be intimidating, but I’ve learned to let it roll off my back. My stepson and his family came this year and I warned him ahead of time that it would be a bit crowded. I asked him later and he said Heck Sue it’s a free meal! Ha HA!! All in all I hope everybody had a lot to eat and a good time. I miss seeing my kids together laughing and  joking with each other around the dinner table, so yesterday was thoroughly  enjoyed by MOM. Now I have to admit that MOM is very tired today and have cleaned house all day, but I expect that. Now what will I do for Christmas???

Sunday was a great day. This was the day my friends and I decided to “ditch” (sorry guys:) our hubbys and take a day for all girls day out. After planning and planning we finally hit a day that suited everybody. Off we went. I have almost forgotten how much fun it is to just “chill”! We hit the condo in O.C. first. How breathtaking is the view. We were on the 10th floor, ocean side. The ocean was calm, just beautiful! How many plans we made for that place would spin your head!!!LOL!! From there it was where to eat? B.J.’s of course. Did someone forgot to tell us that the redskins game was on in full force, complete with the “hoggets” What ever that is?  How loud can you be, well maybe shouting to be heard loud????  The craft show was next, and of course our bargain hunting buddy got us in 1/2 price, (I don’t even wanna know how!)  Then off to the outlets. By the time we reached my house I was horse from laughing and talking! This is truly what every girl needs, to get off the race of work and life and live a little with some good buddies. Let’s see it’s my turn to drive next, which way will we go?
