Fire Drill Day

This morning started off with a bang, or a smoke alarm going off that might as well been a bang.

The good news is that as soon as the alarm went off the younger children woke and filed down the stairs ready for action.

The sad news is that my adult boys, who are sleeping in the living room, right next to the alarm, didn't even flinch. Maybe they are just more used to me and my cooking skillz.

This all happened at 6:00am when I was chopping the apple for the stuffing and forgot about the last four pieces of bread in the toaster oven.

I'm thinking that this may have to become a new family tradition....Fire Drill on Thanksgiving Morning.

I am thankful for so many things that happened this year, mostly for my wonderful husband who for some crazy reason married me and makes me get all tingly in love whenever he walks in the room, for my children who continue to amaze me with their independence and success, for my step-children who keep me feeling young or old depending on the situation, for my father-in-law who is not only my good friend, but a wonderful, loving person.

And for the fact that I'm going to be 50 years old in a few short weeks and I can say that I am truly content and peaceful.

It's going to be a great Thanksgiving over here. I hope you have a great one too.

Happy Thanksgiving! Have a wonderful day with your family, and try to avoid more fire drills! Andd by the way, 50 is a good age - you will have the time of your life!

That's too funny - fire drill on Thanksgiving.

Have a great Thanksgiving Day with your family.

BTW - I want proof that you are going to be 50. No way.

You do have a wonderful FIL! You have had a very eventful year, with much to be thankful for! Thankfully, there was no fire!

We had a great day, but now I am very tired and am chillin in my recliner.

An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
I believe that you need to publish more on this issue, it
may not be a taboo subject but typically people don't talk about such subjects. To the next! Cheers!!

Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about,
why throw away your intelligence on just posting

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and
interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I came
across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
