we're all looking forward to a momentous event- M is coming home for thanksgiving! we go pick her up this morning at 2AM, and despite what is sure to be a sleepless night, on top of a very busy day, compounded by crack-of-dawn-rising little girls, we are eagerly anticipating seeing her again after 3 months. she'll only be here for 5 days, and according to her, much of that time she would like to spend sleeping. she has been run ragged with homework, finals, work and just general college stuff, so she's really in need of some rest. that is, as much as it is possible to rest in this busy, crazy household!
I've been cooking and cleaning like mad all day, trying to get ready for turkey day. i guess it's an indication that M is growing up- it's the first that I've cleaned the house for her.
