Cat food?

This is one of our neighborhood cats, Lucy, hunting down the burnt cookies! She wasn't very easy to videotape: as soon as she'd see me, she'd have to come rub against me. I have two more videos of her that I'll probably post over this weekend!


My cousins are coming tomorrow, so we're really celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow evening. We did go next door to my grandparent's today and had a turkey dinner. We're having ham tomorrow, but my grandma wanted to have turkey too!

So we've been cooking and cleaning today...and probably will be tomorrow morning too! I went to the grocery store this morning to get some last-minute things. For some reason I found it really fun to be out when almost everyone else is home eating or cooking! There were a few other people at the store, obviously getting things for dinner today, but the store was really the least busy I'd ever seen it! ...so I don't know why the guy bagging the groceries couldn't have taken just a little bit more time, and not put the cans of beans on top of the onions, and the marshmallows squished next to the corn flakes...but I digress. :) I much prefer to bag the groceries myself, but when you're in charge of paying for them and such, it isn't really possible. I wonder if they still have you bag your own groceries up north? They didn't use to bag your groceries at grocery stores in Illinois...they probably do everywhere now. I know they did in Oregon...

Mmm...Mom's making potatoes for tomorrow that have cream cheese and sour cream, and I don't know what all else, but they're really, really, really good! :P

LOL! The "you killed it" totally cracked me up...

Btw, I can think of one grocery chain in Illinois that doesn't bag your groceries, and that's ALDI Foods. Of course, they've always been that way... but all the other Illinois chains bag for you, and always have.

Speaking of FBC, the Front Line Youth website is done:

Sorry to be so random...it's late and I should probably be packing, or sleeping, or something!! :D

Happy Thanksgiving, Natalie!

The grocery store Super 1 in my grandma's town in northern Minnesota still has you bag your own groceries. I like doing that, too. I have a theory that guy baggers make the bags WAYYY heavier than girl baggers.

Shop n Save and Cub Foods in Springfield didn't bag groceries. The only places I can think of where they *did* have baggers were Jewel and National...National is now, ummm...that place I can't think of the name of. :) Schnapps? Something like that...based in St. Louis.
