Posted by Dori Nottingham

Today is a busy day. I'm sure a busy day for all of us. I am making a cheesecake (I've never done that from scratch and it's the sweet potato cheesecake I wrote about which threatens my quest for perfectionism) which alots for 2.5 hours of prep time . I have to buy a pecan and pumpkin pie...Thanks Costco! I have to get the guest bedroom ready....and as I'm sitting here I see or rather smell the immediate task of changing my sons diaper. Whewww!!! And that's just what I can't put off until another day.

I also don't want to put off little zoom (my son) from putting on his rain boots and go finding puddles. Our first rainstorm arrived and it seems like a good activity. Probably good for me too and it could be therapeutic. How many calories can I burn by stomping in puddles? I'm sure It will be the highlight of my day.

Be safe if you are traveling and have a good day tomorrow. Eat plenty of good food and remember that thanksgiving only comes once a year sooo cheesecake, pecan and pumpkin pie for dessert. Be grateful for all of what life gives you. The ups and the downs.

Did you really go splash in puddles? You are the coolest Mom. Everyone in your life ought to be mighty thankful for you this week.

It's raining here, and I opened the garage so I wouldn't have to walk an extra 20 feet to the front door. And if my children even think about approaching a puddle, I quake and shiver. Time to be more like Dori.

I know I'm a little late with commenting on this one but I just wanted to say that I loved what you said about the puddles... so true. We need to let our kids play in them and do so ourselves once in awhile. I hope I remember this for the next rainy day we have!
