Last minute Thanksgiving shopping tips:

1. Go to your regular grocery store. It will decrease your shopping stress to be in familiar surrounding.

2. If you have to go to an unfamiliar store to get something special, try to go early or on an off hour.

3. Be polite, because something you need is going to be on a shelf you can't reach (and the guy you just gave the stink eye to may be the only person that can reach it for you).

4.Go with a list and a budget, stick to them. Nothing worse than coming home and looking at a can of creamed something that you'll never ever use.

5. Patience grasshopper. Remember, the goal of the day is to appreciate all the things you have to be grateful for.

And if all else falls slip in your earbuds and let your favorite playlist override the chaos that surrounds you.

Argh! (again)

My monitor has finally said "I will work no more forever," so it's going to be very sporadic posts for the rest of the month at least. Which really sucks, because I finally set a posting schedule.

Hope everyone is excited for Thanksgiving, even in the wake of Sandy and Athena, the two storms that rocked the East coast recently. I'm working on my menu now and have all of next week to prep and cook - I'm looking forward to a return to some normalcy in my life.

Anyway, wish you well and I hope to get back on schedule soon.
