Happy Friday, y’all! I hope you’ve all had an amazing week and that all my U.S. friends had a fabulous Thanksgiving. The highlight of our week was RAIN! We are in the severe drought area of the southeast and it’s been somewhere in the neighborhood of 7-8 months since we’ve had an inch of rain or more.

Of course, it couldn’t be just rain. That would be too easy. We spent half an hour or so sheltering in the basement in the wee hours of Wednesday morning due to tornados in our area. Thankfully, they missed us. It’s the first time in my life I’ve ever woken my kids up tor something like that.
We were all tired the next day, but thankful that the really severe weather missed us and thankful for the rain.
School has been a bit like pulling teeth this week. For the last several years, we’ve taken off from Thanksgiving week through New Years. Because we opted to wait until August to start this year, we had to squeeze in two weeks of school after Thanksgiving. I knew it would seem like a much better idea in July than it does now. We’re surviving, though.
Thankfully, we have Gus to help out when math gets tough.
Then, he apparently thought I needed a little blogging help.
My weekend away with friends the week before Thanksgiving was fabulous, though it went by entirely too quickly. They always do. It’s such a blessing to have such wonderful friends with whom to enjoy a restful weekend and an amazing husband who always encourages me to go.
In case you missed it, I’ve shared a few posts at About.com recently:
Now, I’m off! I’ve got to get myself psyched up to put up the Christmas tree and decorations. We usually do that the weekend after Thanksgiving, but time got away from us this year and I have a kid who’s getting antsy for it to look like Christmas.
