Happy Thanksgiving!

I really love this holiday, because it's all about family and being thankful for the good things in your life.

This one is a little different though, since the Hubby and I have moved to Virginia now we're not with our children who are still in Oklahoma. Circumstances being what they are, they are unable to join us here and we can't go back there.

I am thankful that both their SO's have invited them to join in festivities with their families for the day, so neither are alone. It's kind of a weird feeling to just have the day with Hubby, but it's nice we have each other. Hubby's a good egg, I'll keep him around, lol.

We closed on the house in VA, and our stuff arrives this Sunday. Yay!! One less stresser on my plate. On this Thanksgiving day I'm giving much thanks for this, and for the love of friends and family. I hope that everyone out there stops for a moment to appreciate their loved ones, and to give thanks.

Why, yes, in fact, I do

Still knit! Just finished the first sock that I started on our trip to the UK. Now to cast on for sock #2. :)

Things are rocking along with the house and move. This Thursday the packers arrive to crate up our things, and on Friday they load the van. We leave for Virginia on Saturday. Two adults, one 110 lb dog, one 22 lb dog, and a suitcase, all packed into a mini cooper for the two/three day drive eastward. Should be fun!
