So I was a bit premature last month when I crowed about not having even a louse stirring in my house.
Because tomorrow's Thanksgiving, it's time to remember all the things I'm grateful for.
1. My family. Both the one I came from and the one my husband and I have created.

And all through the house,
not a turkey was stirring,
no, nor even a louse.

My son's advancement to first grade means both my children have homework most nights. And, people, I am telling you now, I am having trouble.
Last night, when I inquired about homework, my son quickly said he didn't have any and tried to hide his homework folder so I couldn't look inside. Naturally, this rang alarm bells.
