Happy Turkey Day!

famfeast.jpgTo all my self-help blog readers:  I just wanted to check in quick and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday.  I was too busy cooking a giant turkey for the family yesterday to log in, but I didn’t want to forget you all. 

This is the Holiday I enjoy the most because it’s all about giving thanks for what you have, and spending some quality time with the family.

Then it falls apart.  Today’s the day they call Black Friday.  It’s one of the biggest shopping days of the season.  In fact, at one of the malls here in Seattle, there were 60 thousand people shopping at midnight (the time the stores opened for the day). 

Needless to say, I wasn’t one of them!

I don’t go out shopping much, and when I do, I pick the off days, like the SUNDAY after Thanksgiving – there’s hardly anyone out there then – they’re all home sleeping, like I am today.

I also do a lot of shopping online.  This season, there are a lot of companies that have finally realized that they can sell more if they offer free shipping, or other discounts.  It works for me because while my husband’s family are all close to us, most of my family is now all over the place – I can send a Gift Basket, a Personalized Gift or even a Stupid Gift and be done in no time.  All from the comfort of my favorite place – my computer!

Anyway, enough of that.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
