    Good morning to you all fellows,

    May Thursday be a grand day for you. It is Thanksgiving day today in my country. I feel like I'm a kid again when it is a traditional holiday. My roots show as I have memories as a child celebrating holidays in a jovial, innocent spirit. I'm feeling so much better tonight. I feel so relieved and grateful for many people here and in my life. I don't know much about feelings, but I do know that I can become disillusioned about the past.. Almost like a defense so I don't have to think about bad memories or experiences. Which is good since I'm very sensitive, don't want some memories to be constantly on my mind, thank god.

    Parents planning on going shopping on Black Friday. Have turkey waiting for today. Much love to you all. Have a safe Thursday. It would be a pleasure for us to hear how each and every one of you are doing.

    Good morning everyone. Currently 2:30 am my time and I'm still not sleeping. I blame a combination of insomnia and my hamster. Probably should try to get some sleep if I plan on making it through Thanksgiving. Have a long day ahead of me. Will be cooking a small breakfast. Already made my pie (oreo pudding pie, yum) and my small cake (which is mostly a center piece, really). Just have to do everything else. Will be eating dinner at my sisters. I'm torn between whether I'm looking forward to it or not.

    Not sure if I'm doing Black Friday. I kind of actually loathe Black Friday. And "loathe" isn't a strong enough word. I tried it one year and it was insanity. People were literally fighting over freaking DVDs. I might brave it. Might.

    Hope everyone has a good day and a good holiday if they're in the US and celebrate Thanksgiving. Best wishes to all of you. :hug:

    good morning coffee forum folk,

    Thanksgiving was last month in Canada. I didn't do anything for it. The US based side of my family are big proponents of the holiday. My grandparents south of the border are doing the whole big meal with kids and grandkids and great grandkids. They are both in their late 80's. They did the same thing two years ago and Gramma said "never again." She's gone back on that I see.

    it's 2am-ish here now. I should be off to bed soon. Work is at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon, so reasonably long sleep period possible.

    until tomorrow. :kris:

    Cooked a small breakfast this morning. It was a bit hectic and my sisters dum dum lollipop (that's her dog, I call her that because he's a big ol' klutz) kept getting in the way. But I managed and everyone liked it. So, all is well. Sister is working on dinner now. Will probably be done by seven-ish. Gives us all enough time to get hungry again between my breakfast and her dinner. Only got a few hours of sleep last night, so I'm running on empty. Considering a nap but being that it's five, I'm not even sure I'll wake up in time. Oh well, might take a nap, anyway.
