Wow - I've gotten tired just from reading your list! Altho I am going to print off a copy so I can show my husband all your husband's good deeds (grin!). But sheesh - you are amazing! And cleaning the fridge before everything starts - what a good idea! All I have to do is clean because my husband does all the cooking, but "the feeling" hasn't hit me yet, but I am hoping! Probably will hit Wednesday night about midnight! It is much more fun reading blogs! And my son keeps telling me I need to WRITE on my blog more than once a month too - he says that is the reason he and his sister are the only ones who comment! (grin again!) Anyway - great blog - enjoy yours all the time! And do you have the scone recipe, I might have to pass that one on to my hubby! Happy Thanksgiving - God bless!
