Holidays

Thanksgiving is done. Yesterday was a wonderful day spent with my family. We had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, rolls, cranberry sauce, black olives, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and cherry cheese pie. And wine. Can’t forget the wine, lol.

It was a relaxing day after dinner was done and the kitchen was clean. We watched the football game and the Lions won! Woohoo!

Having both of my boys home is always treasured time for me.

Have you started your holiday shopping? I’ve made great progress this week. I actually started a few weeks ago by picking up a few things at one of my favorite stores. But, since then, I’ve been waiting on ideas from some people. This week, I took advantage of holiday sales and did some online shopping. Got some great deals! I’m not done yet, but I’ve made a huge dent this week. I may even get some things wrapped this weekend.

Our house is decorated for Christmas now. We actually put our tree up on Sunday, which is a break from tradition. Today, the day after Thanksgiving, is usually the day the Christmas tree goes up here. But, we did it on Sunday. Today, I finished with the rest of the Christmas decor. We are full of Christmas spirit in this house now!

Adam and I ventured out for a bit this afternoon. I do not like to be in the stores on Black Friday. The huge crowds and traffic drive me crazy! I’d rather buy online or pay a little more on a different day, lol. But, he wanted to venture out, and I needed some new candle lights for the windows. So, out we went. It was crazy! So many people, no place to park, waiting in lines! I don’t get how some people just love to shop on Black Friday. We got what we needed, even something I’ve been looking at, but hesitating about buying. But, sales were good, and I bit the bullet and bought myself a new laptop. I’m writing this post on it. Yea, it’s pretty awesome!

Now, it’s a relaxing evening. Tim had to work today, so Adam and I (and Zeke) are hanging out. We had leftovers for dinner, of course. It’ll be at least another day of turkey leftovers, maybe two. By then, we’ll be tired of it, and the pie will be gone, lol.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

This happened

So, winter continues to inch closer and closer. Since this will be the first winter that Adam will be driving on his own, we have been rethinking the decision of buying the Mustang.  He loves that car! He looks good in that car! But, the thought of him driving that car in the snow scares me. It’ll be bad in the snow, just like my Charger is.

We decided to take a ride through the dealer lot to see what was available. Something that would handle better in the snow would make me feel better. Adam was on board, even though he knew he would be giving up the Mustang.

We took a used Jeep Wrangler for a ride. It was nice, Adam liked it. However, they were asking way too much. So, we looked around some more. Adam was drawn to the Jeep Renegades. When I first saw these on the road, I thought they were ugly, lol. However, they are great vehicles. Adam drove one, and loved it! It’s sporty, and has a lot of bells and whistles inside. And, it was cheaper than the Wrangler that he liked.

So, we traded the Mustang in for a Jeep Renegade, and he loves it. We love knowing he’s driving something that will handle a Michigan winter better than the Mustang could. And, it’s 4 door, much more practical if the three of us take his car to go somewhere.
