Blogsgiving: The Conclusion

Visiting my mom’s side of the family for Thanksgiving is always one of the best weeks of the year for me. I have no commitments, and my parents do all the driving. So I can literally just relax, read, eat, and be merry. Thanksgiving Eve we did a crap-ton of shopping since our household was in…
