    Is anyone in the US shopping 'black friday' ? I'm almost 50 and have never taken part, lol, I was wondering what that's like and if it's worth it. I think it takes more mental stamina then I possess...but good luck on sales if you're hunting them down!

    Today is Thanksgiving in the US. I have a list of annoyances that will probably get better after my coffee brews. I didn't want to do this holiday this year. With the health issues of hubby and mine - we can't do a gravy loaded day. I'm kinda thinking of kidnapping him and going out to kick it on the trail this morning and not prepping a single thing. Nothing. Then come home and eat healthy food. But uh' first... coffee.

    I haven't Black Fiday shopped in a couple of years. My dil and her momma will this year as they love much closer to St. Louis than I do.

    @Itadakimasu7

    Many moons ago, I'd go out, stand in line and do the "in person" BF Shopping, but now, the deals online are just as good, if not better, with free shipping, so why bother...usually the online ones start earlier and go through the following Monday too...so before you go, look online first...I just got a new vacuum cleaner at 50% off, plus an extra $10 off and free shipping...and it was delivered yesterday. That was my one necessity this year...

    I grabbed husband and hit the trail this morning - after coffee. In fact I brought a thermos with me :D I was really happy there were so many mushrooms this late in the season and some pretty odd ones. I took a lot of nature photos... My kids were left to reckon with Thanksgiving, which turned out to be fantastic. I came home to a hot meal. I've been vegetarian for awhile so ate the side items and that turned out great.

    @jessicakrall8 - 50% a vac is a good deal!

    @Itadakimasu7 Awesome pictures! That trail looks so beautiful and the weather is nice as well. Here it is pouring rain again.

    Today, I’m driving to Charlotte, NC with my son. He’ll continue on to meet his college friends in Columbia, SC and watch the Clemson University football team play the rival University of South Carolina team. I’m catching an evening flight home. Our older son is also returning to Boston this afternoon. We have a lot of leftovers so I’m going to move some things to the freezer tomorrow.

    We’re planning our next holiday family get-together, and we really should have started earlier because flights are relatively expensive now. We could drive and stop to visit friends in New York along the way, but I’m not going to worry about it today. For now, I’m just going to focus on time with my older son before I hit the road with my younger son.

    Then, I’ll have a lot to do this weekend to get back on track with my health/ nutrition/ exercise, as well as many work tasks, my household decluttering project (that has been moving so slowly), and planning for the Christmas and New Year holidays. I’m spending the winter holidays with my mother while my sister and her husband and daughter travel with friends; but my husband doesn’t want to spend all that time in Boston. So, there are some scheduling puzzles to put together over the next few days! I’m sure it will work out in the end. I’m just hoping to weave in a few fun outings while fulfilling my upcoming caregiver role and travel commitments.

    @frankbrown - Oh man, having to weigh in the day after Thanksgiving, that's rough! Not a bad weigh in, I think my scale broke this morning.

    This is indeed a surprise. It wasn’t just Thanksgiving; we had a house full of people for the week (some are still here), and there was a lot of eating out, which is always difficult for me. But whether this week was a gain or loss, it was worth it: it’s been a fabulous visit with family and many wonderful memories were made❤️
