Time is Just Flying By.....

I can't believe it's already November 22.  Where the hell does the time go?  My son turned 19 yesterday - 19!!!  I just can't believe he's 19 already.  Damn it makes me feel OLD!!!  It doesn't seem like it's been 19 years since I birthed that child.

I had to work on his birthday, but when I got home we went to eat at Moe's.  That was his pick for dinner on his birthday.  Then we went and picked up a cake - he wasn't expecting a special decorated cake, and was kinda surprised I took him to pick out a cake.  I know, it makes me feel like I'm a bad mother for not having a cake pre-arranged, but I've been pre-occupied with some stuff lately, and at least he got to choose exactly what he wanted out of the large selection available. 

It looks like it's just going to be the 4 of us on Thanksgiving this year - I invited my uncle and grandmother, but after talking to Michael today, he said that Meme told him she didn't want to come out here, we were eating too late and she wanted to get home before dark.  For Pete's sake, I moved dinner time to 3 freaking PM.  Which would put them getting home just before dark, as long as they didn't dilly dally for too long after dinner and dessert.  I guess she doesn't know that when I say we're eating at a certain time, I mean we're eating at the time I told you.  I apparently have a natural ability to have all dishes ready at the same time, so when I plan a meal, there's not much waiting around to eat.  If you want to visit and chit-chat before we eat, then I suggest you arrive early!  LOL

Speaking of Thanksgiving - I'm not going to repost my annual blog, I'm just putting the link here - Thankful for the Thorns.  If you haven't read it before, please click the link and go read it.  If for some reason the link doesn't work, then click on a previous year of my blog, look at the month of November, and find Thankful for the Thorns.  I think I have reposted it every year on this blog, since I received it in my email.  I'm not going to elaborate, everything that needs to be said about it is included in the link.

I'm thankful for a lot of things, but am especially thankful for some of the changes that have occurred in my life recently.  I don't want to share what those changes are, and if you know what they are - please don't post about them here or on Facebook.  Some of the news I just don't want to share or make public at this time.  (no, I'm not pregnant, sick, getting divorced, or anything else dramatic like that)  You can, however, send me a private message if you want to know what's up. ;-)

I decided the other night to go through my friends list on Facebook, and I removed about 150 people from my list.  A good many of them I didn't know personally, as they were friends of friends, mainly added due to games I used to play on Facebook.  I also deleted a lot of folks that I went to high school or college with, that I never interact with, or that don't appear to be posting anything on their pages anymore.  No offense meant to anyone that I deleted, I just didn't see the need to keep 150 folks on my list that I don't communicate with at least a little.

Also - my mind has absolutely been in the gutter lately!  Worse than usual!  I don't know what it is, why I'm like that lately, but sometimes it's really funny.  I guess you gotta be there.
