Happy Thanksgiving

I've been up since 7am with Turkey Duty. That wouldn't be so bad, but I'm still having insomnia. I went to bed around 1am, tossed and turned forever. I almost got up to start baking the pies, but I restrained myself.

Yesterday I did manage to get some prep done and I got the mashed potatoes done, so I think I'm in pretty good shape, but I do need to start the coffee.

How did I manage to get up at 7am after a late night? My ipod. Today will be a test of how long it will run on a charge. I usually just play it here and there, never playing it non-stop. It's already working great! I don't have to listen to the kids annoying video games, AND I don't have to hear them ask me what's to eat, because they have already given up talking to me because they can't be heard above my tunes. (Note to self: I should have thought of this much much sooner!)

The beginning of my playlist:
"I Get Knocked Down" Chumbawama
"I'm A Believer" Smash Mouth
"Mad World" (From the "Donnie Darko" Soundtrack)
"Breathe in Breathe Out" Matt Kearney
"Boulevard of Broken Dreams" Green Day
"Better Now" Collective Soul
"I Am Superman" REM
"Because The Night" 10,000 Maniacs
"Goodbye Stranger" Supertramp
"All The Small Things" Blink 182
"Vacation" The Go Go's
"Shiny Happy People" REM
"Move Along" All American Rejects
Eclectic to say the least. I put earbuds in and hit play as soon as I hit the kitchen. (Singing along, of course!) I think the pots and pans clanging in the kitchen woke up my son whose bedroom is off the kitchen. Either that, or it was my singing. He came in and gave me a smirk and headed for the living room to plug in video games.

I have 2 Quiches in the oven. 1 for today's breakfast, 1 for tomorrow's. One is bacon, asparagus, cheese and green onion. The other is bacon, cheese and green onion.

As soon as the dishwasher is done, I'll start making the pumpkin pies.

Off to make the coffee.
