Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night

Today is Canadian Thanksgiving. In our household, it goes something like this.

H: J, put your shoes on please.

Today, I am thankful that H didn't just drive off the embankment on the way to his brother's house for Thanksgiving. Thanks, Hon!

And Happy Turkey Day!!

I think I might live at your house. Sounds eerily familiar.

I spent my Thanksgiving in America. Locked in a mini-van with two little boys who needed to fight but couldn't think of anything to fight about so they just started yelling sounds at each other.

That's it, I'm adding you to my blog roll, too. I consider myself VERY SNOBBY about blog-reading and am a little worried b/c you're the second person I've added today. Maybe I'll go boot someone off...

Momma Trish said...

Bloggess - Then it's time you started contributing to our mortgage. Cough it up!

CDA - So then, you understand our pain. I imagine the incoherent yelling would have been reeeeally irritating. I'm sorry.

Mouthy - I'm very flattered. Thanks!

I found you by way of Steenky Bee...and I want to know why you were blogging from our house when you wrote this? Shoes are the arch enemy of all things related to being on time ANYWHERE. Great blog...I'll be back!!!

Momma Trish said...

Hullo Stiletto Mom. Nice of you to stop by. Shoes are my son's nemesis, apparently. Boots rock. I look forward to seeing more of you!
