Shhhh I am supposed to be cleaning my house, finishing laundry, and packing- but I snuck in here to blog. I just wanted to tell you all Happy Thanksgiving. We are headed in the AM to St. Louis to be with my Mom, Dad, and my niece Kaylin (otherwise known as the stairwell girl). I will attach her video so you can see how amazing she is. She is the one playing the guitar. She will be embarrassed and hit me later. When we were at Youth Congress this guy walked up to her and said- Wow- you're the stairwell girl. Thus the new name :)
I can't wait. I have been going and going and going- and I really know that I need this time to rest, not do anything and just have fun. Plus I was told by my husband and few choice friends that I am not allowed to work while I am there. Johns words were something to the point of he would leave me if I did. He of course was kidding- don't go running to call your friend and tell them John is leaving Cylinda. Never happening.
I had a whole list of things that I could do while I was there- get some articles done on the ride up there and then things to do while I was there. I stopped myself and said NO- you are not working this vacation. I know this sounds really silly if you are not a workaholic you won't understand the constant mental battle. If you are you are like I am with you sister friend.
I say- Happy Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for my family, friends, blogging friends and loved ones. You all have made my life so much richer. Every time you comment I just tingle. I appreciate your words, laughs, concerns, and just can't imagine why you keep coming back- but glad that you do!
Don't eat too much turkey- and remember to hug your family!
