I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last did a blog post. WOW!! Where has time gone?? We had a rather busy week and things just sort of got away from me. I’ve been trying to lower my stress level and just let things happen as they come along. I feel so much better now that I’m doing that, but at the same time, I feel like it’s a waiting game. I think more than anything, we’re looking forward to a weekend off. We’ve been on the go every single weekend and that’s just not us. We’re not one of those families that plans things constantly and is rarely home, so this is driving us nuts and we feel tired!!
Kiddo did get her CPR re-certification done this week and hubby had jury duty. He made it through the first phase of being picked for a jury and was supposed to show back up on Tuesday. However, Friday afternoon he received a call that he wouldn’t be needed. He was actually a little disappointed as he’s never had duty before. He was always active duty military and couldn’t do it.
Anyway, today IS a day off!! It’s Columbus Day. Lately there seems to be alot of controversy over this holiday. Now I know Christopher Columbus was no angel, but we have no problem celebrating other days, so this day just needs to be left alone. It is what it is and it’s part of our history.
I know that I also have several Canadian readers from my groups and just readers in general. Today is the day that you celebrate your Canadian Thanksgiving. Last year, I enjoyed reading up on the history of it. I found out that it’s similar, yet very different from our version of the same holiday. Obviously, there’s a difference as to when it’s celebrated as well. If you don’t know the history of the Canadian Thanksgiving, look it up….it’s interesting!!
Whether you’re working, or have the day off…..have a good one ya’ll!!
