All Over the Place

Lots going on today, and this week.

Of course, there's Thanksgiving. We are going to St. Louis to watch the parade then go to my sister's house for dinner. It should be a good day, as usual. Waiting for dinner means looking through all the Black Friday ads and planning a shopping trip. I have already been scoping out the Black Friday ads on the internet, so I have a pretty good idea where I will be going and what I will be getting, but I like to see it in print, in front of me, and organize my morning in my head.

I get to see some old friends over the weekend as well! Thanks to Facebook, I have reconnected with some old friends I haven't seen for, like, a decade. One friends lives in Kansas City and is coming to the area this weekend. We are all meeting at DQ in Carlinville on Sunday and I can't wait! Fun times ahead!!

Last night I got to watch an old movie with my babygirl. OK, before I tell you the movie, you have to promise not to laugh. OK. Promise? I watched Breakin' last night! You know, that movie from 1984 about break dancing? Wow, what a flashback! Everyone had big hair, lots of ugly jewelry, crazy bright clothes that hugged the body (so they could dance, I guess). Even the men in that movie wore tights. Man, I love that stuff. (Not necessarily the men in tights, but all that hair, and dancing, and bad acting, etc...). Now I am looking forward to catching the sequel, Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo, sometime! (Go ahead, you can say it, Weirdo!)

I ran another 5K last saturday. I am getting a little better each time. My time was 37:13, which works out to a 11:09 mile. I'll turn myself into a runner yet! And I am LOVING Zumba! Between running and Zumba, I can picture my new me by next summer. I am growing my hair out, and getting in shape. No will will recognize me at my 20th Class reunion next June! Woot! Woot!

Oh, I need a little assistance for a minute. I have 3 nieces that are 8 and 9 years old. I am getting them a gift certificate (they all want expensive electronic stuff for Christmas instead of cute dolls or toys) and a book. Any suggestions for great books for 8-9 year old girls??? I have a few ideas myself, but I thought I would throw that out to the experts. So??

Anyway, have a great Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and weekend - I know I will!
