What should I write about?

Should I write about Thanksgiving? Because it was fine. Turkey, dressing, all that. Just dandy.

I opted to not shop today. The whole "I have panic attacks in crowds" part of me won out, and I decided to be on kid duty. The best part? Hanging out in the car for an hour, in the driveway, when my three-year-old, extremely exhausted nephew napped in his car seat. I didn't want to risk waking him up by moving him, so I studied my music for the concert (quietly) and let him sleep. Apparently that's insane-people behavior from the reaction I got when the shoppers returned. Oh well. I thought it was nice. And he really needed that nap. Yes. Indeed.

The best thing about spending time with the young neice and nephews is that it reminds me how awesomely awesome it is to have older children. I have so darn much fun with my kids, and they are considerably less labor-intensive. Very nice.

Back to the football game. Or the nap. Same difference to me, except the former is much noisier with this crowd.

remember when I came to visit for fangsgiving, and we intentionally went to wander around the mall, not to buy anything, but just to be in the way. good times. I'll never do that again.
