No Time for a Diet.... the Menu....and other odds and ends

Well this is defiantly not the time to even think about a diet. As I have done in all previous years I am preparing Thanksgiving dinner, and we invite friends over that either don't have family in the area, or have no family at all. There will be people in and out from noon until sometime late that night. Dinner will be ready at 4pm. Here is this years menu. Turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, baked corn, green bean casserole, sweet potato pie,and pumpkin pie. Yes I know there is only 2 of us defiantly going to be here, but we have had some friends say they will stop by, only one of which I know will be here. 3 people... all this food.... we should have turkey still left by Christmas lol.

If my parents were still here, yesterday would have been their 37th wedding anniversary. They were very much in love until dad passed away, even after that mom was so heart broken over it. The autopsy for mom may have said pancriatitis, but if anyone died of a broken heart it was mom. When dad passed, it wasn't long until her mother passed away. She then lost contact with her brothers and her sister, mom gave up on living. Mom lived just long enough to spend one year with her grand daughter, and then she was ready to be with her husband and mother again.

I hope and pray you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving day. This year I have many things to be thankful for. I have a wonderful husband, who loves me and takes care of me. My brother and sister in law whom I love and care for. They have made me an aunt 2 times now. My niece and nephew and the most precious kids I have ever seen. ( I know I may be a little prejudice) My friends, both online and in real life. My cousin Robin who I lost contact for many years, and have recently started talking to her again. I hope one day I will be able to see her, her husband and her children. It has been to long ago that I last saw them. But most of all I am Thankful for such a wonderful God, who has seen me through good times and bad times. I may have questioned my faith, but he has always been there waiting for me to come back to him. I am thankful for a job, although I don't like it, it is a job and that is something many people don't have.

Another weekend done....

Most people look forward to the weekends... NOT ME!! I work on weekends...every weekend since August. I am looking for a new job right now, but it is so hard with the economy right now. No one is hiring. I come home, I am frustrated and I feel defeated every time. I just don't think this job is a good match for me and my interest and abilities. I want to be efective in my job, and here I know I am not. I want to be able to help people... hence my Human Services degree. Right now I feel that all the money I have spent on college was a waste. Not much else going on here really... and don't want to depress anyone with everything going on here right now.

National Blogging Month...

I have joined up for national blogging month. Each day for the month of November I will be posting an entry. is where I went to sign up. So here we go....

Things here are busy as usual. I have 2 more foster classes to attend, and then its time for the home study. That I am really stressed about. I want everything to be perfect. I am still watching my God daughter during the week, and working another job on the weekends, I was working 3 evenings a week but the new supervisor has cut my hours. I was reading another blog, and now has me thinking.... its almost time for Christmas again!! How did this year pass by so fast? It cant be that time of year again. I have so much to do, and less than 2 months to do it. I am starting my shopping next weekend though. I guess I will get what I can from Kmart because I LOVE lay a way. Don't forget... tonight everyone get an extra hour of sleep... turn those clocks back and change the batteries in the smoke detectors.
