Thanksgiving To-do List

Yesterday, the Maestro and I spent the day in Marquette. Marquette is where they have a Target, along with other stores I am deprived of in my small town. It's a 2-hour drive, and while we see the orthodontist there on a regular basis, it hasn't been very recently since Bria got her braces taken off. I've been missing Pier One Imports because of it, but since it means she turns in all her homework now, I won't complain too much.

But it's Thanksgiving Break now for the Maestro and me, so we made a lovely day trip together, AND made a decent dent in our Christmas shopping.  The girls are still in school through today, so I'm planning to get as much as possible done, even though it's already 11:45 and I haven't done a darn thing but read.   And in fifteen minutes I'm going to lunch with a girlfriend.

But after I have replenished my mind and soul, I will:


  1. Deep clean the kitchen and get it ready for the heavy duty Thanksgiving Day cooking.
  2. Vacuum the house.
  3. Deep clean the dining room.
  4. Polish the silverware.
  5. Iron the napkins.
  6. Troll Pinterest for table setting ideas.
  7. Fold laundry.
  8. Make labels for my pies.
  9. Wrap the Christmas gifts I bought yesterday.


What are you doing today to prepare for Thanksgiving?
