A break from break

5 days seems long enough to have everyone home! I'm ready for a "normal" day tomorrow when the kids go back to school and my one day off. I don't do anything remotely exciting, but it is a day I don't have to deal with my kids fighting or making messes between the hours of 8am and 3:30pm. Heaven!!

Thanksgiving went very well and was very delicious. I don't plan to step back on the scale until January 2. LOL I figure I want to enjoy life and there isn't all this good cooking the rest of the year normally so might as well live it up for a month.

On a food note, I LOVE the Candy Cane Hershey Kisses and have already plowed through 2 bags of them. I also found Pillsbury Peppermint Cookie Dough and will be making some of those today after the kids finish their chores. I hope they are delish because I bought 3 tubes of them (froze 2 for later) since they are limited availability.

Fall Back

Changing the clocks in the fall is so bittersweet. In one way, I am glad I won't be driving to school in the black darkness in the mornings. I am sad it will now be dark at dinner time though. I love when it is light at night, but starting tomorrow it will be dark around 6. :( I guess all we need now is snow!
