This has its good points. And its bad. I've realized multiple fancy, shmancy planning printouts are not my friend. One good ole' blank sheet of paper with columns by category makes me sigh with contentment. All (on one page) or nothing, people!
So here's my list(s):
Hang new light fixtures.
Re-install curtain rod and curtains.
And yes. I know it was crazy to start a home-improvement project right before a holiday, but I couldn't help myself!
Clean carpet high-traffic area.
Cleaning the dining chairs (Hello! Milk spills!)
Get kids' haircuts.
Food prep schedule.
Choose outfits for the day.
Empty and charge camera.
Make Thanksgiving napkin rings.
Last minute home cleaning. (Saving till the last minute! ;))
There's probably more.
Here's my menu, which I'm very excited about and will make you wish you were coming here for Thanksgving too! (And you'd be welcome!)
24lbs of golden Turkey goodness, cooked to perfection (a girl can dream!) and carved by (hopefully!) my unflappable Uncle Dan. (with dressing by Aunt Janie.)
Sweet Potato Spoon Bread
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Glorious Rolls (Think buttery melt in your mouth, can't eat just two!)
Baked Corn Pudding
Beet, Carrot, and Apple Salad
Lemon Herb Green Beans
Molasses Bourbon Pecan Pie (unless I can't find bourbon from a friend in which case the optional bourbon will be
Whatdaya think? Hungry yet?
The things that throw me (list, list list!) are things like remembering to set butter out to soften; getting the turkey outta the freezer on time; remembering you need serving spoons for all those dishes. Since I'm not a practiced large crowd, meal provider, filling the salt and pepper shakers is off my typical radar!
I'm so excited! Even though we're having our big meal the day after Thanksgiving (That would be Black Friday to some of you!), I will be sharing heaps and oodles of thankfulness with, and for my family!
