Hasta la vista Connecticut. I'm going to the land of Cheaper Gas

Chuck and I are getting out of town with the kids for Thanksgiving.

It's a good thing. All of my family lives nearby, so we see each other all the time. When the holidays come, we're so sick of each other we're all desperate for an excuse to do something else.

This year our friends in Maryland invited us to their house. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm excited to go south. I'm not so excited about the prospect of sitting in traffic, trapped in a car with two kids under age five, but it'll be an adventure, and if you couldn't tell from my last post (was it really two weeks ago?), I really could use an adventure.

So good-bye for the week. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. I hope you're fabulously close—or deliciously far away—from your family. If you eat too much, I hope you own pants with an elastic waistband. I hope you're thankful for all the things that are going right in your life, and equally as hopeful about all the things that are going wrong. I don't say that I'm thankful nearly enough on this blog (in fact, sometimes it horrifies me how much I kvetch), but I really am thankful.

(Did you hear that, Mr. Sunshine? Didja?)

Blogs are the places where we are supposed to kvetch. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours and drive safely.

That's funny, my whole family was in Maryland for Thanksgiving but I stayed here. I did the Maryland for Thanksgiving trip a few years ago and I'm thankful that I'm not going to do it again in the near future. The year we went, we ran into traffic though my parents and sister somehow managed to avoid it and came sailing home in no time yesterday. It's just not so fun for me to spend a whole day driving each way!!

Was it a fun trip for you?

Hoping you and your boys are unaffected by the tragedy in Newtown. Be well.

Man! There are a lot of holes in my neighborhood

Our young neighbors Bob and Claire are wonderful —which is a fricken relief because we basically share a yard. A flat, treeless yard. When ...
