Happy Thanksgiving!

I know most of you are like "WHAT? It is not Thanksgiving!" Here in Canada it is! Don't ask me why Canada and the US have different Thanksgivings...doesn't make much sense to me (although it does spread out the cross-border traffic jams a bit). My extended family is having a big dinner at my grandma's house tonight but my mom gave me the OK for us to skip it and just relax at home. Mom and Dad are going to stop by on their way home and bring us left-over turkey (and everything that goes with it). I think she realized that after a super emotional few days I was just not in the mood for socializing with the kajillion aunts/uncles/cousins that would be there. I think my mom has given them the run-down of what is going on with us so I also don't really want to have to answer a bunch of questions (and likely start crying, which I tend to do a lot of lately). This way we get the yummy dinner  anyways!

T and I are both feeling better about the whole thing today. Obviously this did not turn out the way we had planned and expected but there is nothing we can do about it at this point...and who knows, maybe it will end up OK in the end. We had a lovely sunny day (actually an unseasonably warm few months for this part of the world) and just enjoyed each other's company and tried not to talk about "it". There is a garden centre nearby that is HUGE and you can go and drive golf-carts around it so we did that for awhile and imagined what we would do if we had a huge back-yard. Just a nice day all-around. I am also going to try my hand at making "sparkly pumpkins" in the next few days so I went and bought some glue and sparkles at the Dollar Store (I'll post pictures if they turn out!)

I hope that everyone is having a lovely weekend. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'm going to try my best to be thankful for all that I have been blessed husband, family, friends, cat, job and house...and just hope like crazy that we will be having a baby join us soon!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I had no idea that Canada had a different Thanksgiving day than the US - or that Canada had a Thanksgiving holiday at all. I guess I just assumed it was a US thing. Thanks for making me a bit wiser today. :)

    1. No problem! Thanks for all your lovely comments this evening.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! I am glad you and T are feeling better. Hopefully Thanksgiving helps makes the time fly by!

  3. I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving yesterday! I can't wait to see your sparkly pumpkins. That almost sounds like a pick-up line.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving!! You have a great attitude, and I always find counting my blessings is helpful to keep everything in perspective. I am still keeping my fingers crossed for you!

  5. Happy thanksgiving! I hope all is well with you.
