I was gonna do this thing that everyone else is doing where you post something on your blog every day for the month of November, but then I just didn't do it and now it is the third of November already and it's too late, right? Or I could start now. But I probably won't. Or I might. I'm undecided. And I suffer from mood swings. Anyhoo, I said I was gonna tell you about our plans for Thanksgiving, so I'll go ahead and do that. Last Thanksgiving sucked. It was the worst Thanksgiving ever. We had no money. We didn't go visit my sister(for the first time in ten years). I got food poisoning and threw up for like fours hours straight and had to call in sick the day before Thanksgiving and my boss was PISSED because she always took that day off and how DARE I become ill on her day off! Never mind the fact that I had just come off of a six month course of Prednisone because I had Kidney Disease and I had NO immune system to speak of. Yeah, I don't miss that job AT ALL. Anyway, it sucked. Big time. So I told my husband that next Thanksgiving was not going to suck. Not if I had anything to do with it! So my sister and I started tossing around ideas for what to do at Thanksgiving this year. I wanted to go back here. That Thanksgiving was simply magical. (It's Tahoe, by the way). Lisa and Scott decided they wanted to try someplace new. That's where we differ. Joe and I are the type of people that find something we like and feels comfortable, and we stick with it. Lisa and Scot are adventurous and stuff, and always want to try new things. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's just different from us. So we decided to spend Thanksgiving out of the country! That's right. We're headed to Vancouver, Canada for Thanksgiving. I. Can. Not. Wait. Seriously, I am beyond excited. I haven't been there since I was a child. From what I have read and seen on the Internet, it is so beautiful there! I already have every day packed with things I want to do in the short time we are there. I'm not sure we will even be able to pack it all in! Of course, Joe has to go to the Art Museum. And with the kids, we have to go to the Aquarium. And I have to do this. Which is funny, because I am afraid of heights, but doesn't that just look so beautiful? But then there is this. And this. And this too. (We HAVE to do this. How can we not)? Oh, I don't know how we will be able to do it all. I need at least another week! I guess we'll have to make due with the time we have. But I am excited. Big time.

P.S. That was a lot of links. I don't blame you if you didn't click on them all. Totally understandable. I got slightly carried away.
